Theron nears the summit of West McMillan Spire. The range appeared empty but for ourselves on that glorious October morning in 2003. Mount Triumph is behind.

Excellent photo, it really shows off the beautiful views you get up there in the Pickets.

Thank you Martin. For someone willing to hike long and hard, that peak has a huge view payoff. People say Sahale is the best view peak for the North Cascades. I don't disagree - but if you could hack that 5000 footer elevation gain, then you are ready for this one :-). You know, Theron and I calculated that it was over 11,000 feet elevation gain over 2 days to get in and out of there. "Ey yi yi..."

thanks Alpinist! It was a satisfying shot because earlier in the summer we'd climbed Mt. Triumph in the background. The light had that low angle you get in the fall..."an ending to things" kind of feel.
