Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2005.06.04
Vantage Point: From Door Jamb South Ridge

Caption: Kelly makes his way down a slabby section.

PhotoDescr: The south ridge of Door Jamb offers sustained scrambling for about two kilometers from the ridge's toe at Highway 1A across from the Continental Lime plant to the summit of Door Jamb. The frequent sections of slab are rough-surfaced and offer good traction even when damp.

The Bow River is visible in the upper left, and Jura Creek's stream bed can be seen on the upper right.

A group from the Grant MacEwan Mountain Club scrambled up the ridge, some going as far as Loder Peak, as part of the club's annual summer season kickoff campout, the Owl Prowl and Howl. See the trip report for more details.
