On Sep. 20, 2015, myself and the Centanni gang (Jim , Evan, and Caleb) found both White-breasted and Red-breasted Nuthatches on the East Rim of Steens Mountain. (A photo of the WBNU is included here: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S25155909) That has to be at around 9,000 feet in elevation with the summit at 9,734 ft.
Per the eBird bar chart, RBNU has occurred there multiple times, but that's the only WBNU record at that location.
