Capricorn Mountain - East Face
Located just southwest of Mount Meager, between the Capricorn and Job glaciers. Capricorn Mountain appears to be more gentle than the other volcanic peaks in the Meager Group. The massif consists of a boomerang shaped ridge, with one summit on each end of the boomerang and the the main summit in the centre. On the north slope of the northwest summit lies a dramatic tower called Perkin's Pillar.
