I'm not even sure it this is an article. -- Ricardo (Rmx) 14:46, 3 November 2006 (EST)

  • Is the top somewhere that has a city, or that you can sleep on (legally)?
  • Is the mountain itself a national park -- as opposed to "part of" a national park?
  • Is it a distinctive region that fits tidily within one country but not into one of that country's regions?
If the answer to any of these is "yes," it's probably an article; otherwise, no. Ricardo, you probably know the place better than most of us; what's your opinion? Personally, I have created a couple of articles on mountain ranges (Jemez Mountains, Sangre de Cristo Mountains) on the grounds that there are things in them that qualify as "attractions" and/or places to eat/sleep but don't fit smoothly into some other city or park, i.e., the ranges are treated as "regions." I have a hard time imagining how that could ever work for a single mountain, however. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 15:13, 3 November 2006 (EST)
Mount Roraima is inside both the Canaima National Park in Venezuela and the Monte Roraima National Park in Brazil - it marks the border between those two countries. Since access is normally done by the Venezuelan side, I'd keep it as "isin" Venezuela. Similarly, Angel Falls is also a major attraction within the Canaima Park and has its own article, It is, however, easier to fit into the hierarchy as it doesn't share a border with Brazil. As the 3 articles already have been written to some extent, maybe we could keep the two "problem" articles as "districts" of the main park article (like Canaima National Park/Angel Falls and Canaima National Park/Mount Roraima. What do you think? -- Ricardo (Rmx) 19:09, 5 November 2006 (EST)
That seems like a reasonable solution. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 20:58, 5 November 2006 (EST)
