Muir SW2 in the background here.On the south ridge to the false summit, looking to the true summit at upper left and across to Mount Strachan which we scrambled the day before in perfect conditions.Strachan at left, Shankland at distant right in front of Courcelette.A great view to the true summit of Muir as we ascend the south ridge.Views west and north (R) from the false summit of Muir over Muir SW2 (L) and McPhail (R) with Weary Gap in between.The summit of Mount Muir from the false summit.
