Well, yes. It needs to remain a part of earth, so it isn't going to rise up to reach the moon.

I understand your question (related to the uplifting function of plate tectonics), but honestly, we have no idea because no mountain has ever been there before.

It is unlikely that you and I will find out the answer during our lifetimes.
