which peak3.jpg
I guess there's a reason nobody can name this peak. It's not the peak I thought it was when I posted it. Upon further review, and looking at sequential photos, I have determined that it is peak 12,212 above Valor Lake on The White Divide, in Blackcap Basin. I was thought it was Mt. Reinstein, but I was mistaken. The photo below was taken about 30 minutes later at the top of the ridge looking down on Valor Lake. This is Reinstein, which is just slightly to the right and south of 12,212. :bear:

Lol my first thought when I saw it was Reinstein but after a closer look I knew it was not.

Hey folks, anybody want to take a crack at the peak in the photo on the 17 Nov. 643 pm post? Here are a few additional clues for that one: The peak not on the crest of the Sierra and this view is from the NE. Elev of the peak is >12500', easiest route: class 3. I suspect part of the challenge here is that the place the photo was taken from (near a remote and fishless lake) probably sees fewer visitors than the summit of this fine peak.
