Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2004.09.28
Vantage Point: From the north shore of Black Rock Lake

Caption: The impressive north face of Greater Pharaoh Peak

PhotoDescr: See Trip Report #5310 for an account of my climb of Lesser Pharaoh from the east side (just west of Black Rock Lake).

See Trip Report #5693 for my account of an excursion that included an attempt on Haiduk and an ascent of Middle Pharaoh.

I made ascents of Greater Pharaoh on August 7, 1985, as part of a lengthy backpacking trip, and on December 27, 1993, as a bit of exotica on a Christmas ski trip with Reg Bonney and Bob Saunders - we climbed from 11:00 p.m. until returning to our camp at 2:00 a.m. the next day - beautiful silvery full moon!
