You got it. What makes this tricky is this photo is taken from near North Guard Lake, so this is an angle very seldom seen.

Peak3.jpg

Edit: After inadvertantly giving away my two last posts with the .jpg filename (didn't realize that showed up upon running mouse over it), I'll have to try a different one (the Mt. Rodgers shot from Lyell Fork Merced that was up for 1.5 hours has been deleted). This one is a bit easier because the view angle is a bit more common.

Giantbrookie - your filenames are giving away more than you might want to.

Ooops. That's too bad, the last two would have been pretty hard otherwise. I swapped out the photo on the last post for a different one of a different peak.

giantbrookie wrote: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.

Devil's Crags????? :-k

Sorry, I missed that you already gave away the answer! ](*,)
