Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2005.06.30
Vantage Point: From Drinnon Peak

Caption: The spectacular Asgard Peak in the centre of the photo.

PhotoDescr: On the final day of June 2005 we climbed the north slopes/south side route on Drinnon Peak in a mixed bag of weather that was likely one of the best days of June 2005 (says something about the rest of the weather that month).

A couple of 4th class moves were fine on the way up, but not appealing on the way down after rain greased the lichen covered rocks, so we booted down the easy 2nd class south ridge to regain snow slopes.
