Not Achilles, but it is an Abel with a classical name. You need to look past the rock.

Still too far north, still too long a name.

Something that pointy with a really short name led me there. I remember spending a night at Echo Point admiring its stature.

Could be many places on the central plateau. How about on the way up Mt Jerusalem?

I can't remember if the burnt out pines beyond/behind the mountain were also close to the tarns there or not.

Yay... I thought it looked quite familiar and that was my first instinct... but I was not confident enough to avoid hedging my bets with "could be many places on the central plateau". :-)

That's it - second last day of the OT with six kids.

Between the Narcissus River bridge and the hut.

I hadn't noticed the view of Ida from there before, so I thought it was worth taking a photo.

Yes I noticed it one evening for the first time glowing red through the trees. Very cool.

Looks like I pipped fat boy by seconds. He or anyone else can post next.

Pretty close to the top here John - but I was coming up from the hut.
I thought the small tarns were a nice surprise.
There was remnant snow up top.
