Due to the notoriety and prominence of neighboring peaks, ones attention is usually drawn away from this classic-pyramid shaped summit,
which is why I'll be impressed if anyone gets this one

*Hint*

    Clearly visible from the #1 Trans-Canada Highway between Calgary and Banff.

    Exceeds 10,000 ft.

Sweet. I like this game. Here's my mountain:

http://www.summitpost.org/images/medium/13625.jpg

*Hint: Those are MESQUITE trees at the base... and the elevation is around 5600 ft at the peak... (1700 m or so...) I don't want to get TOO specific!

Baboquivari

Never heard of it before tonight, and it's hard to tell, Baboquivari looks totally different in every photo. But I'd say it's a hell of a guess.

A GREAT guess... but not the right mountain! Any other guesses?

Hey, it's all relative anyway! It's a lot closer than, say... Patagonia!

Any more mountains?! I like this game.

Good view of the North face of Athabasca with the Silverhorn looking a little bare.

Gawd you guys are good!

Maybe I should only show the top 2' of a moutain next time :P

Yes it is deffinately Athabasca, and was an awesome weekend in blinding blue ice and skies with a cold wind blowing over the glacier, a nice switch from sweating our a$$e$ off humping haulbags.

His pack was lighter then usual, so I made him carry mine up the headwall :twisted:
(just to increase the training effect)

I keep telling him that as soon as I get too old to make it up these mountains on my own, I plan on riding in his haulbag, so he may as well get used to the weight now :wink:

And yes, he did in fact make that jump.
