    600 ft high mountain or 600 ft-high mountain?

    Which is the correct version: a 600 ft high mountain, or a 600 ft-high mountain? Or neither?
    I know the measurement is hyphenated before a noun, but the "high" throws me.

    As an aside, I do not think that a mound that is 600 feet high is classified as a mountain.

    18000 feet high mountain
