C. Rodrigo states that the satellite altimetry data used by the authors is no longer valid and, therefore, the  3 summits are non-existent. The author’s opinion is that the version compiled from Sandwell & Smith (2001), showing  3  summits, as much as the one from Rodrigo (2011), showing only one, deserves respect. Both must be considered as proposals and should be judged by the scientific community for their approval or rejection.

Key words:  Data bank, satellite altimetry, non-confined block, slump, slope
