Mount Mitchell West Face # 11519

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2008.07.05
Vantage Point: From camp along approach to Augerpoint Mountain from Buttle Lake

Caption: Looking towards the west face of Mount Mitchell from camp on approach to Augerpoint Mountain

PhotoDescr: Stunning west side on Mount Mitchell. The south ridge is the right skyline, and is reported to be Class 4 (Culbert/Fairley), though I have not heard of any details of the route. Mount Mitchell is now more commonly climbed from the north and east sides, via logging roads up the Oyster River. I believe these are non-technical.

I am not aware of any ascents up the west side.
