What Peak is this?

Postby alpinemike » Sat Jun 28, 2014 6:20 pm

I'm trying to determine what peak the pointy almost horn tipped one is. This was taken below Forester Pass just a few days ago along a bench before dropping into the valley below.

My guess is that it's either Gardiner or Cotter, but I believe Cotter is further to the North.

Looks like unnamed peak (3740+) south of sixty lake col ? Gardiner would be the highest peak to the left, Cotter is peeking from behind the ridge to the right ? Naah... the one to the right is Clarence King... it's amazing what one can can do with google earth ;o)

Yes. I think you're right! I've seen that peak before and that's where it is.. right south of Sixty Lakes Col. Thanks!
