Smugglers Ridge and The Pyramids # 4652

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2003.09.29

Caption: The upper end of Smugglers Ridge (left) and the northwestern most of the three peaks of The Pyramids (right) from the marmot-infested slopes below.

PhotoDescr: Day 3 of a 4-day trek through the area had us climbing one of the Pyramids. I figured after hiking about 40 km in 3 days, we would try and scramble straight up the west face instead of attaining the col between Smugglers Ridge and The Pyramid(s). Well, about halfway up I found myself on the exposed ridge to the left (Northwest). After some interesting exposure, and strong Class 3, I enjoyed some great views that only the Kootenays can deliver.
