Bagging It!

This Ribu is the highest point of Waigeo island, also sometimes spelt Weigeo. We previously thought Gunung Mandum (estimated 977m) was the highest, a peak of similar height lying way inland, but SRTM suggests this un-named peak is a little higher. A US Army maps gives an elevation of 3,280ft which is 999.7 metres….. as close to a borderline Ribu as it gets. But ALOS suggests nothing over 984m or so. Therefore 990m for now until more data becomes available.
