About Mitre Peak:

"This mountain is famous only for its shape - which, from two points of view, really does resemble that of a bishop's headdress - because, as it is surrounded by much higher peaks, it does not appear to be very high, and cannot be seen from a distance. Viewed from the Concordia Glacier, it makes an unapproachable impression, and its friable rock and snow gullies look uninviting. But it is nevertheless beautiful. The question of who brought off the first ascent is controversial, as there have been repeated attempts on the summits without permission, and so the records are unreliable." R. Messner, The world's greatest peaks (Sigloch edition, 1989)
