Pretty sure this outcropping doesn’t have a formal name. I couldn’t help but call it “Pajama Rocks” after some wonderfully loud pajamas I have seen.

Camped next to them on the right where the slope and trees level out near a waterfall.

Above the tentsite, the hill rises up another couple of hundred feet and  levels off,  then goes onto 11,706 ft. Victoria Peak. I declined to go the last 1400ft out of respect for aging knees and a lot of downhill the next day.

  1. Really an amazing place. Desolate as the dickens, full of drama and muscle.
    I hope you got near enough the waterful to get in it. I love your photograph
    of the campsite full open, lived in, what a wonderful feeling that must be.
    Pajama Rocks is a terrific name.
    You should make a sign declaring that, left in a bottle or stuck into a notch
    before heading off.
