Re: impressive!

Thanks Tomek, the day started out with clear weather, but as the day progressed clouds came over and covered most of the views. But during that time I saw some neat views above the clouds.

Nice!

That isn't Sherpa Peak though. It's the West Horn. The little knob to the left is Long John Tower, which you must pass by on the way up the West Ridge route.

Re: Nice!

Thanks Marshall for pointing this out. I looked on Google Earth to confirm this. Good catch, the fact that we were above the clouds and that this was posted way later after the trip had an effect with me naming this photo.

Re: Nice!

You're welcome!

I love Mount Stuart. I knew it wasn't Sherpa Peak because Sherpa has that distinctive balanced rock on top. I had to look it up on here to see that this sub-peak is called the West Horn. It isn't officially labelled on any maps.

Re: WOW

Thanks OlymicMtnBoy. Moments like these reminds us that sometimes clouds coming in are not such a bad thing after all.
