Dear Cecil,

If one could cut off Pike’s Peak at the base and move it to Charleston, 
S.C., and if one defines the base of Pike’s Peak as being the elevation of 
Denver, Co., then the height of Pike’s Peak at Charleston would indeed be 
8,830 feet.  So you are correct.  Simple arithmetic!

Best wishes,

David Scarboro
