Mt Peak identification

by Jexm » Sun Mar 16, 2014 12:50 am

I'm trying to identify the mountain peaks in the background of this photo. I've looked online and asked friends how backpack and climb in the Sierras but I can't seem to positively identify them. Whitney has been suggested but it doesn't seem to match the features. Maybe it's the angle of the photo or something. Anyone recognize this area ?

I believe the ridge from the wing forward is Comb Ridge with Mt. LeConte under the nose of the F/A-18.

I think you're right. This pic is a good match:

Not just the ridge line itself, but the patter of the snow as a V just to the right of Corcoran.

Agree. Corcoran-LeConte on right, Tuttle Pass middle, NF of Langley on left.
