Since, even with the brainstorming, I still had to (and did) work out what "high point" meant, I'm going to count this as a get on the poll.
Another bit is the Hollywood sign is not open to the public. Any memorial there would be inaccessible and, as a result, would likely be at the Observatory to begin with, as it's within a stone's throw.

( Incidentally, that bust in that photo? The one with the star? That's the James Dean bust. )
(Edit: OK, maybe a Herculean stone's throw, but still!)
I was going to bring up the sign's inaccessibility (which is the reason I said "would have to be comparably visible from afar"), but semi-accidentally left it out while trying to clarify my writing.
