Mount Lander (left), Nylon Peak (middle), and Pronghorn Peak (right) dominate the skyline to the south from the South Ridge of Bailey Peak. Noel Lake lies only a few dozen feet from the Continental Divide. August, 2004. Can anyone spot the Fred Beckey route in this picture?

Great Photo

I read somewhere (probably in Kelsey's Book) that Noel Lake used to drain into the Moraine Lake basin to the N as opposed to where it now drains to the east. Did it have an obvious outlet while you were there.

Also, did you get a chance to look at the terrain that was between Moraine Lake and Noel Lake? Did it look like a reasonable pass with, say, a 10-day pack?

Re: Great Photo

The lake didn't seem to have an outlet, but the ridge was higher on the east. Did the pass look reasonable to Moraine Lake? I think I remember that it looked like steep talus and boulders, and could probably be done with a pack, although it would be slow and tedious.

amazing photo

That is one of the most beautiful photos from the Winds that I have ever seen. Noel Lake looks like a spectacular place to be.
