Tristan hiking into the rock glacier cirque
Tristan is the blue speck, Rob is the red speck with white legs.
Hiking under what would be our descent route.
We headed from the rock glacier back towards the Flute Glacier. This ridge was an easy hike up.
The ridge from Eagle Peak to Flute Peak
Flute Peak on the Organ Glacier
Mount Beelzebub and the Devil's Mistress
The eastern side of Eagle Peak with the Fledgling on the left. Further back and on the right is Heritage Point
We climbed the false peak on the far left, then traversed to the gulley in the center and headed straight up to the summit ridge
The western terminus of the Organ Glacier
Polar Bear Peak on the left, Yukla in the center, and the eastern face of Eagle in the foreground
The Organ and Flute Glaciers, seperated by the north ridge of Flute Peak
Polar Bear Peak
The summit with the Tordrillo Range in the background
Tristan surveying the landscape from the summit
Kiliak, Yukla, and the Icicle Glacier in between.
A 360 degree view from the summit
The Organ and the Flute
From left-Ptarmigan Peak, The Ramp, Mount Wiliwaw, Hidden Peak, and O'Malley Peak
The route up to Blue-eyed Lake
Looking down from the summit at Echo Bend
We signed the register, which is hidden right under the cairn
Eagle and Symphony Lake, and part of Anchorage in the background
The descent was down a trecherous class 4 scree slope with plenty of scrambling over cliffs and things,
so I didn't take any pictures until we got back to camp.
Yours truly drinking glacier water back at camp before going home
Kiliak took a much-enjoyed swim in Eagle Lake
Looking back at what we'd climbed
Some interesting faces Rob made along the way.
