Descending Cornwall, looking North # 3970

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 1999.05.22
Vantage Point: From the summit of Mount Cornwall

Caption: The author starting to descend the N ridge of Mount Cornwall with plenty of late spring snow.

PhotoDescr: One week before this picture was taken there was hardly any snow on Cornwall, then a 3 day storm set in and this was the result. Peter Weinacht and myself ascended Cornwall entirely on snow, good and consolidated for step kicking lower down, but deep and powdery on the upper mountain above the Glasgow/Cornwall col. Too bad we did not have a crazy carpet for the descent!

At the right edge of the picture you can see Mount Remus, with Mount Romulus and its steep east face to the left of that. The large mountain in the distance behind Romulus is Fisher Peak, and straight above me far off in the distance you see Mount Kidd North (R of me) and South Peak (L of me). Just to the left of Kidd South you can see a pyramid shaped peak which is Mount Bogart.
