No idea. The color pattern is nice, but the white part looks chossy (on my screen!).

The white part it actually quartzite, while the darker rock it limestone.

Looks like it might be in the bugaboos? I have no idea what specific peak though.

That's either Mt. Holeeshit, or Mt. Wow.

Geez... Brian, think I'll disqualify you from the local trivia next time Sly

Yes.. it is indeed Mount Wilson

peakfinder info

Here's another view of Mount Wilson from "Base Camp" aka "The Saskatchewan Crossing Resort".

Lady Wilson?

I don't see ice as clearly as I see rock.

I thought so too at first.
Lady Wilson's Cleavage 300m, III WI 3

But I don't really know, I also though it could be this one that is listed as "unclimbed" as well, and shown in a photo (at a slightly different angle, more snow in the gulley, etc.) on page 269 of Joe Josephson's "WATERFALL ICE Climbs in the Canadian Rockies" ?

I'm fairly sure it's not Lady Wilsons Cleavage owing to the lack of upper climbs in the Wilson Major and Lady Wilsons Right Tit bowl area. (gotta love the names)

The Unnamed/Near Death suggestion is a possibility but I think may be south of where the pic is taken.
I'm inclined to think that Shooting Star is center pic and below, out of the shot.

That would make this ice one of the climbs listed further north, possibly as far as Midnight Rambler but not as far as Lady Wilson.

If you look at the Shooting Star pic on p302, see the snow gulley high and left, left of the three towers. See how it drops down and left out of the photo? I'd think the above pic is ice coming down from that gulley.

Of course a drive up there with a guidebook and pics may answer the question but I'll not be heading up the Icefields anytime soon. In the meantime, zoomed in pics, vague memory, and summer heat will keep the conjecture going until someone who knows what they're talking about settles this.
