Mount Sheba and Tyaughton Panorama # 8739

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2006.07.21
Vantage Point: From the high ridge south of Mt. Sheba

Caption: Mt. Sheba and the Tyaughton drainage from the ridge south of Mt. Sheba

PhotoDescr: One can gain this ridge by taking the Open Heart trail on the north side of Spruce Lake. However, the trail peters out in the scree slopes at about 51:01.4-123:01.6 (appr. 7100 feet). From here, you are left with a mighty push up to the ridge proper. We did this final part by going up a small stream because the rocks were somewhat solid compared to the total choss everywhere else.

Once on the ridge the winds were blowing and we had a nice break from the oppressive 30C+ temps.

One can see the twin peaks of Mt. Sheba to the left and the Tyaughton Valley on the right. The red peaks to the right are typical of this region and one can even pick out Lizard Creek coming in from the left of the Tyaughton drainage.
