Looking south towards a south summit

This picture looks to the South, towards the path I had hoped to take to the summit in the photo, then possibly along the ridge to a higher summit to the West (right). Just below the center of the picture you can see the band of snow that stopped my progress. I was very disappointed to have made it so near to the top and be stopped, but I was weak by now and therefore decided that the prudent decision would be to not try to cross the snow and risk a slip.

The oh-so-close summit to the South
