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: Perry NE2 and east side glacier, with the high peaks of the Monmouth area behind.

PhotoDescr: Taken on the third day of a 6 day trip to the Slim Creek Headwaters. Perry NE2 is one of a string of peaks separating the headwaters of the Lord River from the low pass between the Lord and Bridge drainages. According to the BC Basemap, it has a closed 2680m contour at the summit, meaning its interpolated elevation is only 2 m less than its parent, Mount Perry. Therefore, it is possible this peak is higher (it at least has more prominence).

From our viewpoint on Tuber Hill it appeared the best route to the summit would be up the glacier to the col left of the summit, and then up the lefthand ridge.

The ridge is in the midground is on the other side of the Lord-Bridge Pass, and the flat area on the very bottom with the small lake is part of the extensive volcanic plateau south of Mount Loes. The glacier on this side of Perry NE2 drains right into that pass, and forms the headwaters of the East Fork of the Lord River.

While we enjoyed our view of Monmouth and its 3000 m neighbors, they did block any views farther north and west to the real pinnacles of the Coast Range, like Mount Waddington.
