Well, it does have the highest peak, but I wasn't counting the truly mountainous regions.
It is however the pass, which makes it high up. And by looking at the rivers, it's the continental divide.
OK, I just dug up a map I got from Greg years ago (which he's probably forgotten about and is thus about to redraw -- differently - -- as soon as I write this). In one elevation, the chaparral of Prax may be higher than Dragon Pass. In another, the pass looks like the highest thing around.
I happened to mention Dragon Pass weather while talking to Greg today, and he said there was indeed a glacial wind (referring to the maps in Missing Lands), and that it was quite high up.
