Nestor Peak and Lake # 18176

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2018.07.07
Vantage Point: From the unofficial "Simpson Peak", a high point between Nestor Peak and Simpson Ridge.

Caption: Nestor Peak with Nestor Lake is stunning in the late day lighting in this view over Ferro Pass towards Nestor Peak, Assiniboine, The Marshall, Watson and Indian Peak (L to R).

PhotoDescr: In July of 2018, Phil Richards, Eric Coulthard and myself traveled into the Police Meadows and spent two hard days ascending possibly new routes on Simpson Ridge, Simpson Peak and Nestor Peak.

This photo was taken long into our first day which saw us approach the Police Meadows from Sunshine Village before bushwhacking and routefinding our way up the east side of Simpson Ridge. From Simpson Ridge we descended towards "Simpson Peak" and scrambled our way up steep scree on the west aspect before cutting over the north ridge and traversing along the east face to the southeast ridge and then to the top.
