I have added the photo below to show the whole range viewed from the Champagne Castle Hotel at the foothills of this magnificent mountain range. The highest peak – or what appears to be – in the centre is Cathkin Peak 3149 mtrs .. to the left of it .. the flat bit is Champagne Castle and is actually higher but it’s behind so appears lower .. that’s 3377 mtrs. To the right is Sterkhorn after the dip which is Gray’s Pass. Then comes Dragon’s Back – not very clear in this photo – so let me add another photo below this one to show the beautiful sharp peaks of Dragon’s Back.
The little ‘blob’ in the centre of the photo is the Sphinx which I featured last week – that’s where hubby and I got to on our mountain walk. Spectacular!
