Prospector and Phelix Peaks # 14758

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2011.04.30
Vantage Point: the east ridge of Tolkien S1

Caption: Prospector Peak(s) are centre left with Phelix Peak centre right. The logging road below is the east branch of Phelix Creek Road and would provide good access to these mountains.

PhotoDescr: I caught up with a car camping group on the upper slopes of Mount John Decker. Half of us summitted that peak and 5 of 8 then continued northwards either by ridge or bowl to ascend Tolkien S1 which is 20m higher than JD.

From there we followed S1's eastern ridge down towards a col and descended into a valley trending northeast to reach the upper cut block of the western branch of Phelix Creek Road which we followed back out to our vehicles to complete a pleasant loop trip.
