Mount Louis Summit Block # 12337

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2007.07.28
Vantage Point: most of the way up Gmoser/Kain

Caption: The summit block of Mount Louis

PhotoDescr: Most of the way up Mount Louis, many of the routes converge here to tackle the summit block via the crack in the middle of the right-hand "tower" (the Perren crack).

Lots of fixed gear (pitons) in the crack. One could probably do the tower in a single pitch with a little simulclimbing or use a cluster of pitons part-way up as an intermediate belay.
