The peaks in this photo are unnamed

That looks like Excelsior in the far upper right...

Re: The peaks in this photo are unnamed

I don't think that's excelsior. I think that's the unnamed pointy peak just south of summit lake. i believe excelsior is just hidden and out of camera in the upper left corner of this shot.

Re: The peaks in this photo are unnamed

Steeleman is right. Here is a shot of the pointy peak including Summit Lake. This pano (0.6MB) from Camiaca Peak gives another look including Excelsior.

Re: The peaks in this photo are unnamed

Bob meant far upper left... Bob, now put the map down, you win. I'll concede that is Excelsior Peak. I was thinking it was this peak. Steeleman is correct on pointing out that the peak on the right is south of Summit Lake.

Re: The peaks in this photo are unnamed

ok, the nerds are coming out now :-)



i still think the true summit of excelsior is out of photo upper left, hidden in this shot. what you think is excelsior here is actually a false summit on the north ridge just below the summit.



putting map down now...

Steeleman is right again. See... I knew what I was talking about. ;-)

Re: The peaks in this photo are unnamed

Sheesh. I can't even tell my left from my right. I think that's due to my left-handedness. I've been scarred since childhood, being forced to live in a world run by righties.
