Re: Wow man...

Thanks Paulo. You should come here and climb it with me--I guarantee you won't get those "sun burns and lip burns" that your Brasilian mountains are giving you. Much healthier, my friend!

Re: Kayak?

Yup, that or mountain bike (there's an old road alongside the lake). Hasn't had many ascents.

False Mitre

Chugach Mtn Boy, I believe that the peak you have there is actually the False Mitre. The Mitre is just behind it. I haven't heard of it being climbed, which means it may have been climbed once or twice. Who knows? Anyways, sweet photo of a beautiful area! Thanks for sharing.

Re: North Ridge and North Summit

Oh, Lord, just what I need, another Steve Gruhn! ;) Yes, from this angle you can't quite see the slightly higher south summit (or maybe you can only barely see part of it peaking out). But I think saying this is not the Mitre would be misleading--the overall mountain was so named BECAUSE of this view and the mitre-like north ridge so prominent in this view but invisible from the back side. Sort of like saying it's not Mt. Ranier you're seeing from Little Tahoma because you can't pick out Columbia Crest from there. Anyhow, thanks for adding the comment.
