The Leaning Towers Group # 5337

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2004.07.02
Vantage Point: From Peak 8290

Caption: The Leaning Towers Group from the west.

PhotoDescr: On a reconnaisance trip of Mount Loki we climbed unnamed Peak 8290 and found ourselves overlooking the Leaning Towers Group in the Purcell Mountains. The Leaning Towers are seldom visited, lying in the heart of the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy, there is no trail in, the nearest logging road is a long way away, and helicopters are not allowed. Each year I keep thinking about going in, but the long bushwhack with a full climbing pack seems to push any plans to the backburner - I should go in soon, however, I ain't getting any younger!
