My initial thought right away was from Dozier.... looking across outlet of Lower Cathedral toward Tressider.
But I'm not sure. It's a tough one. Other thought was perhaps Vogelsang.

Need to poke around pix tonight. It's not an easy ID.

Sorry if I ruin it... but it's def from Dozier.

Can't find my faux-toe of that spot in da snow... but here it is from Google Smurf:

Here's one from with snow... not same angle of the dangle... but you should be able to see
that it's the same ridge, etc.



I'll post something better tonight when I'm off work... hahahaha

Is that peak in the background officially named?

I don't think it's Tresidder Peak, or is it considered part of Tressider? Perhaps as one of its multiple summits – the northern one – with Tresidder's main (highest) summit further south along the unseen ridge (in that photo) obscured by this first, lower summit. Just wondering...

Nope. That peak is BM10450.. well, I have never heard a name for it

Here's a map:

Looking at the topo map and seeing how it shares its southwestern face with Tresidder Peak, I was wondering if the USGS might consider it a part of Tresidder Peak itself, one mountain - two summits.

I'd say that's a no. 10450 is along the same ridge as Tressider... but so is Columbia Finger.

Here's two faux toes of mine that will convince you if you no believe me:


On left is Echo Peaks


Way on right is Tenaya Peak

This peak looks amazingly similar to Mt. Clark from about the same angle. What's it called? How about "Mildred Peak." I doubt anyone would bother climbing it with that name!
avatar Re: Identify this peak
March 07, 2012 10:00PM
It's BM10450. It's just a small knoll... almost flat... til you hit the edge...
I'd bet anyone going to Tressider goes up there and enjoys the view too...
so it's probably visited quite a bit... I haven't been up there but have shots from
Tenaya, Echo, and Columbia Finger... it just looks supa flat...

IMO it looks nothing like Mt. Clark...

Here's some stuff on Clark:

I think someone posted a pict from there ... but I can't find it...

Here's Clark from Clark Canyon:


Many of the Peaks in the park are very unique. And Clark is one of them. It's pretty hard IMO to mis-id Clark.
(athough it doesn't look fin-ish from the East)

Well, I guess 18 years absence takes its toll. I'd probably score low on the old map test we used to do at the VC and the trout species test too. I even kinda got lost 2 years ago in Dana Meadows trying to find a favorite place, but at least I found the tower delphinium I was looking for below Gaylor lks.

Here's that fin on Clark:

Good detective work chick-on!

I then had to figure out when I was on Tresidder Peak...OK found the year...got out the prints and looked through them. At first I thought I had a few, but it was Tenaya Peak. I only have the NE flank of 10450 in any of my pics. (I think)

here's another view from that batch of photos
avatar Re: Identify this peak
March 08, 2012 09:36AM
Nice... Long... Meadow... smiling smiley

In all honesty I immediately thought of Dozier and that view when I saw the photo.
I just couldn't remember that spire-like thing-a-ding in there... so I had to do the
investigatory work.

Did you go to the tip top of Tress?
Columbia?

When I went up Columbia I skipped Tress and headed to Tenaya Pk.. was doing a loop
from the Dolly Domes area and got lazy... Tress looked quite technical... and
Columbia was more difficult than what I thought it would be.

I found a WIDE photo of the area. Sep 2009



chick-on...I did not go to the tippy top of Tressider. I did have to drop my pack and got up close to both summits. I had to straddle a bit of a knife edge to be comfortable taking photos and video. I could've summited, but I questioned the "going down" part and since I was alone, I didn't.

Nice.

Ears one of mine from 2007. Shows Columbia, Tressider, and 10450. (and a small Lake)



and for the Mt. Clark Guy: wink

May be ho hum... this photo of Clark... but look for The Old Guy in there.
And now I know where I want to spend a night... smiling smiley

Hik-errr-ladie395, when you gonna tell me when Teee-ohhh-ga Road gonna open for da year... so

Wow. No snow on the north side of Tresidder at all. Not so in 2011. Here's a 360 from a location not far from yours.

Maybe this year will have less snow..... and fewer mosquitos.

Strangely but, I'll be darned if this lake doesn't look like Lower Twin Lake looking north from the northwest slopes of Michie Peak. Rainbows, anyone? Visited there just once on a day hike from Wilma in 1990 and had a great meeting SE of the outlet with a very colorful American kestrel who lives there. Not on the beaten path, if there is one nearby.

Jim, he answered it. But the reason I posted it was .. click on his name... and you'll see.

To be clear... it's a view of Lower Twin Lake taken from the SW flanks... (looking NE)
Lower Twin is just East of Huckleberry

I'm completely lost. I'm not familiar w/ Huckleberry Lake and there are so many Twin Lakes it makes one head spin. Are we even talking Yosemite? Help out the handicapped.

OK. No problem.

It was related in my chick-on brain because of this:


And Click Here for a Gmap4 of where photo was taken

Huckleberry is just outside the northern boundary of the park in the Emigrant Wilderness.
