Skihist Mountain: Towers of Choss # 5472

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2004.08.16
Vantage Point: From gendarme on the east ridge of Skihist

Caption: Doesn't that rock look inviting? We skirted the blocky gendarme (beneath the snowpatch below the left true summit) on the high left side before reaching the summit.

PhotoDescr: Don Funk and I climbed Skihist Mountain on a weekend full of mixed weather. Our plans to complete the trip in two days were defeated by a raging, multi-forest-fire-starting storm.
