Perhaps it depends on what you consider to be the "summit".

I believe most books and popular belief is that Lynn Peak is the rock bluff clearing with the views. In Google Earth, that elevation is 920m or thereabouts. That is not the actual "Lynn Peak" though, which is further up and is a treed summit with no views. Elevation there is in the 990's.

Here is my GPS track of this in GE - the dip into the clear spot is the bluff viewpoint, and the end is the peak proper.

That's a good point - that would explain the Lynn Peak one but the Outhouse Juction and Black Tusk Junction in Garibaldi Lake is a mystery But no worries - won't be long before I'm there again so I'll re-track it and compare. Thanks for the tips Below you can see that the distance between the two points are accurate but being in the Lake is weird. I also marked the Helm Junction which seems to be more accurate.
