Based on my

opinion, you have did the monolith of
Thomson justice in this photograph.

In Fred Beckey's book that I purchased in
1987, he includes the 'p' in the mountain's
name.

Beckey made the FA of that steep 600-ft face
and (west) ridge with Helmy Beckey, Robert Craig and William Ford in 1940 from the 5,960 ft saddle above Bumblebee Pass. Very nice !!!

Re: Based on my

Thanks. I wasn't sure how to label this mountain. The USGS map that I have says "Thompson," but it was named after a guy named Thomson, and Beckey does call it "Thompson." Klenke's page here on SP calls it Thomson.

Re: Hmmmm ...

I'm very confused, but when in doubt :

I always go with Klenke's amazing beta !!!
