    How would it be used? I have never heard anyone use it.

    It is the height of stupidity/ it is the height of laziness.
    Jonatane is also right: it the summit of his ambition

    Saludos amigos. Summit is technically correct BUT I've never heard summit used in that expression. Height is commonly used.

    Another one. epitome of something: the epitome of arrogance; the epitome of beauty

    Then there is ultimate: the ultimate insult; the ultimate achievement

    Final: the final blow. the final slap in the face

    Another good one: to top it all off: "Things went badly from the start and to top it all off she told me I was ugly."

    Hey California

    I was surprised to read that you have never heard height used in this context. How about "...at the height of his career; the height of the battle, the height of the tourist season, etc."

    Maybe it's regional.

    I previously said that I have never heard summit used BUT "peak" is a very similar word that is used, as in "...the peak of the monsoon season"
