Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2019.08.05
Vantage Point: From near the summit of Mount Steve, looking NW

Caption: Various peaks of the Subatomic Group

PhotoDescr: Taken on the second day of a 6 day trip to the Slim Creek Headwaters. After setting up basecamp in the Slim-Nichols Pass, we headed up Steve for a quick afternoon expiration, to get a sense of the area ahead of our stay. The peaks of the Subatomic Group were often in our sights during the trip, although we did not summit any of them. Lepton, Muon, and Baryon are all within ~20 m in height of each other.

Unlike some mountains a bit farther north and east, there are sizable glaciers around all the peaks, in particular the one that descends to Griswold Pass (hidden in the valley between Baryon and Meson here).

The Beast is a high (3100m+) peak in the vicinity of the Tchaikazan River.
