Blackfriars from the Southwest # 11574

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2008.07.16
Vantage Point: Belvedere Peak

Caption: West and East Blackfriars from Belevedere Peak

PhotoDescr: The 2008 KMC Climbing Camp was at Adamant Meadows.

The Blackfriars are impressive peaks from all angles. I was itching to climb the 4th class route on the south side of East Blackfriar (the face on the right peak in the picture), but with 20 cm of freshies the day before we flew in and several subsequent snowfalls during our week in the area, wet snow slides were common and the face never came into shape.

The easiest route up the west peak (lower) is rated 5.7.
