"I Wanna Climb That" - Asgard Reflecting in Mulvey Lake # 7180

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2005.08.11
Vantage Point:
From Mulvey Lakes

Caption: Asgard Peak from Mulvey Lake to SE.

PhotoDescr: The S face with its steep routes is somewhat hidden. The SW (Grade II 5.7) ridge is the left skyline, and the East Ridge (3rd Class) the right skyline. The SE Buttress aka "Bissinet Bastion" (Grade II 5.7) follows the upper ridge crest along the right edge of the S face,right along the line of light and shadow in this photo, but nonetheless is pretty close to the E Ridge route and seems a bit contrived as a result.

Upon waking up on Thursday morning we were presented with this wonderful view and consequently climbed the peak via the SW Ridge, a great easy trip out from camp to warm up for the next day's objective.

Midgard is just out of the photo to the left.
