Mount Gould's NE face
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Mount Gould's NE face, taken from the saddle leading to the final ridge up neighboring Mount Grinnell (behind the photographer, and to the north). The large ice sheet at the bottom is Grinnell Glacier, with the smaller and higher one being known, simply, as The Salamander. A third, albeit very small, remnant is known as Gem Glacier, and is the diminutive, rounded, ice field perched high on the saddle leading to the Mount Gould. In the early part of the Twentieth Century this area was one massive ice sheet, but has since split into the two (...or three: I'm not sure whether or not Gem Glacier was part of the larger ice sheet) we have today. What you are looking at is not the famous and oft-photographed Mount Gould East Face, but the lake is 3150' below the summitthis face is impressive enough as is! Photo by Vernon, July 20, 2005.
