I am just starting to organize the numerous beautiful shots of the area. This one is taken from the East end of Ruth Lake to WSW, and it is obviously not the peak Shane thought it was.

Thanks. Good catch. Right you are.

This is what I called "Lofty Peak" (Peak 11158) on the SP page and "Cutthroat Peak" in the book. I'll reattach it to the other page.

Anyway, I found the name Lofty Peak on a geology book, but it was applied to the southern peak which is also known as Scout Peak to most. For the book I wrote, I just used the nearest named feature I could find, but found a few other sources, and unfortuantely they seem to use names for peaks interchangably. None of those peaks have real names. I think I'll work on changing the two back to the book names for conformity.
