Yes.

Yes.
Gphunk88 wrote:What is the class? (I'm guessing 2?)
Well defined trail to t-line (class 1), climbers path with cairns to top (maybe class 2)
Gphunk88 wrote:And the final question... Can you reach ESP easily from WSP?
No. Very long traverse. ESP is generally climbed from the Wahatoya Trailhead.

You're welcome. Oh, and the very little snow that is there can be easily avoided or negotiated.

Back in 1971 "Un 13,472" was often called "Chipeta" by the locals then living in Salida and surrounding area. I may have seen a map at that time confirming same. Makes sense: the Chief's wife should be a bit shorter than Chief anyway.

Yeah, it was always Chipeta back in the late 60s and early 70s. Oops, I am showing my age. SJ Ron :shock:

Because you're looking down on both peaks, the farther away one appears relatively less lower. Either that or at 30 miles away a 500' difference just isn't that much.

And where's Antora? Off to the right somewhere?

http://www.peakbagger.com/peak.aspx?pid=32559 <-- why on earth wouldn't they just name the higher peak? And why does LoJ not have this listed?

Antora would be off to the right.

I'm not sure how, but I feel like you cheated.

http://www.listsofjohn.com/PeakStats/QMap.php?Q=11320

Do unranked peaks just not show on the quad maps?

P.S. Clearly I have no idea who They are. I just know They should have done on official naming, on the ranked peak.
