Mount Davis from the North # 18164

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2018.07.08
Vantage Point: From the top of the north subpeak.

Caption: The photo shows the final little cliff band you climb through. Easy class 3 with minimal exposure. Note that the top of Mount Davis is quite level.

PhotoDescr: Looking at a topo map, you see two peaks: a little north subpeak, then the main peak of Mount Davis. There was also a cairn on the subpeak, probably some parties would stop there, especially in bad weather. The photo was taken as we decended from the subpeak to the notch and then the final climb. This is probably the most common way to go up the peak if you are coming from Soqaqua creek. The other alternative from Sowaqua is to leave the trail before you get to the campsite and bushwack directly up from the west. This would be behind the right hand skyline of the photo.

When we reached this point, Betsy was a bit nervous since she started talking about how we should have the "InReach" satelite texter for possible rescue. But of course it was easy. And even if you fell, the other member could easily hike out for rescue.
