Date: 2019.08.06
Vantage Point: From the summit of Tuber Hill, looking west

Caption: Various high nunataks of the inner Lillooet Icefield. Stanley Peak is the highest point visible.

PhotoDescr: Taken on the third day of a 6 day trip to the Slim Creek Headwaters. From the summit of Tuber Hill be got a great view into the remote Lillooet Icefield. Stanley Peak sits arguably at the hub of the icefield, on the divide with the Stanley Smith Glacier (which flows into the Bishop and Southgate Rivers, and then Bute Inlet) and the Bridge Glacier (which flows into Bridge and then the Fraser Rivers).

The doubled tongued glacier at center is sometimes called the North Bridge Glacier, and feeds a major upper tributary of the Bridge River. Old topo maps show the two arms connected, and terminating closer to the valley bottom.

Despite the distance from our basecamp, this was a worthwhile day destination for a view of an infrequently visited area. Henderson and Dodds did not have recorded ascents until 1973.
