Peak AR, works very well, it even has the low peaks. It can be off by a few degrees but generally its close enough. http://peakar.salzburgresearch.at/

Thanks for the responses, I'm going to check out peak AR. That seems pretty crazy that you can La Plata from there.

I've got a very similar App on my iPhone, it's called "Peaks", or otherwise known as Matterhorn Peaks by Augmented Outdoors. Cool app for finding and identifying peaks.

castle/conundrum for sure. From the summit you can see pyramid, Maroon, Capital/Snowmass on a clear day. Never thought about the Sawatch, but I imagine it's possible since it's really not that far away

This photo was taken from the summit this past fall with my phone so the clarity isn't that great and you can clearly see pyramid, maroon and capital/snowmass in the distance...hope that helps.
