A view back to the surprisingly sunny summit of Syncline as we descend on the St. Eloi traverse.On climber's left of the pinnacles, St. Eloi in the distance just left of center.Kev on part of the traverse around the pinnacle - he's really hard to see here!Finally we see our traverse across to the south ridge of Syncline (skyline) with the south summit at upper right.Getting cliffed out.Losing and gaining extra height as we try to find an efficient way around the pinnacles.Looking back at our slightly problematic traverse from the south ridge, the east summit of Syncline at upper leftKev traverses to the St. Eloi col with the south and west summits of Syncline in the bg.Kev traverses to the St. Eloi col with the south and west summits of Syncline in the bg.Lovely scenery, looking back at the south ridge of Syncline with the west summit at left and the south summit left of center.Hiking towards St. Eloi from the col. Still a ways to go!Gravenstafel and Haig.Looking down the Gardiner Creek Valley towards threatening skies and Mount McCarty. The west summit of Syncline at right.A lovely tarn at the headwaters of Gardiner Creek.Significant height loss / gain as we look back from the traverse.Kev pushes himself up the ridge towards St. Eloi.Looking back at the three summits of Syncline and our weary traverse from the right hand side.Phew! After many hundreds of Kilometers of driving and much last minute finagling, we actually pulled off our two summit day.Summit views south towards Castle Peak and Windsor Mountain over top of Southfork and Barnaby Ridge.
