On South Ridge of Seton Peak # 6893

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2005.07.03
Vantage Point: From near summit

Caption: Mike Layton on the south ridge of Seton Peak racing a fast descending ceiling.

PhotoDescr: A traverse of the peaks in this photo, south from Mount Seton (formerly Cy5) to the 2634 m snowy ridge at the top left in the photo, is an excellent day trip (the summit of Seton (Cy5) can be reached in about 3 hours from the car!). The intervening 2627 m sharp summit on the ridgeline (far left in photo) is Class 4 via the north ridge on surprisingly good rock. No cairn was found on its quartz littered summit.

Taken on another wide-eyed attempt to link a bunch of peaks in the Downton Range, this time shut down by bad weather. Very recent footprints were discovered along the far ridgeline in this photo -- anybody out there?
