Climbers have longed claimed that the true peak of Lazios mountain Terminillo is higher than its hitherto official peak, and is 150 metres from it. Now this has been confirmed by Mario Crespi, a lecturer from the engineering faculty of Romes La Sapienza university. In the course of a walk with some friends in October she was checking the site of the official peak and was directed by some climbers to another spot some 150 metres away, which the climbers claimed was higher. Readings were taken at the new point which confirmed that it was indeed higher, by one metre and thirteen centimetres. So the official height of the mountain is now 2,217.13 metres, not the 2,216 metres given by all maps since the beginning of the 20th century.
