Mount Wheatley - east side from Tuber Hill # 18709

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2019.08.06
Vantage Point: From the summit of Tuber Hill, looking west

Caption: Mount Wheatley at center, with other various peaks on the Lord/Bridge Divide behind.

PhotoDescr: Taken on the third day of a 6 day trip to the Slim Creek Headwaters. From the top of Tuber Hill we got good views into the remote northern portion of the Lillooet Icefield, including Mount Wheatley. Many of the peaks visible were named after various high-profile BCMC members of the early- and mid-20th Century.

Out of view to the right is the Bridge/Lord Pass, from where one could access the gentle, meadowed ridge sitting above the main glacier visible. No doubt Wheatley is spectacular from that location. Along with Tait, this peak sits above the immediate headwaters of the Lord River.

In 2003 the summit of Wheatley was climbed from this side via the glacier, as part of a traverse of the Bridge River Headwaters by Robin Tivy and others.
