View of Garibaldi-Tent Col from the Upper Bishop Glacier # 10843

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2007.09.08
Vantage Point: From the Upper Bishop Glacier (SE of Garibaldi-Tent col)

Caption: View of Garibaldi (rock pinnacle on the left) and the Tent (right) from the Upper Bishop Glacier

PhotoDescr: Lara, Ben and I traversed from Brohm ridge to the Garibaldi-Tent col to a camp below the southeast ridge of Atwell. Climbed Dalton Dome the next day and completed the traverse to Elfin Lakes.

This photo shows Ben and I in front of the Tent-Garibaldi col. The descent from the col involves fairly complex glacier travel, and before taking this picture we had to belay some steep snow in between numerous crevasses (visible in the background to the right of us).
