Kona still having fun after being hauled / ¬†pushed up the crux chimney. Mt. Neptuak (Valley of Ten Peaks peak 9), Eiffel Peak, Pinnacle Peak, Wenkchemna Peak (peak 10) (climbed by Kona’s “dad” in 1988), and Mt. Hungabee (climbed in 1986).

Below, hordes of peak ascenders on summit ridge (counted 59 summiters this late July day); and view of peaks 4 to 9 (Tonsa, Perren / Sapta, Allen / Shappee, Tuzo / Sagowa, Deltaform / Saknowa, and Neptuak) from summit.

 

Below, Kona on slightly higher snow cap; and summit view to Consolation Lakes and Tower of Bable at lower left, Mt. Bable and Mt. Fay (peak 1/ Heejee) at centre, Mt. Little (peak 2 / Nom).
