Wrong title


This is the Price Glacier and Nooksack Cirque view of Mt Shuksan.

Re: Wrong title

The Price Glacier is on the North side of Mount Shuksan as seen on the topo link. If you want to be technical this is the North East Face, but near the top seems to be the true North Face on the right. I believe your wrong on the Nooksack Cirque (except for a very tiny piece of it on the left if you really look for it). Shall I pull up 3-D Imagery to show you what I'm talking about. On the left side of this image is the Nooksack Tower. Now in this photo it is the Nooksack Cirque and East Nooksack Glacier.

Consider me

schooled regarding the Nooksack Cirque. In this photo the North Face, as climbers understand it, is not really visible but the Price Glacier is clearly visible in the center of the photo.

Re: Consider me

Alright, you win. I renamed the photo to North East Face. Is that accurate enough? If not, I suppose I could title it Price Glacier.

NE face is more accurate.

I used this photo for the Price Glacier route page as it appears Knoback took it down when he left.
