Trip Report

After leaving the summit of Table Top Peak, Wietse and I followed a delightful ridge towards the twin summits of Whistable Peaks. Dave McMurray named the more southerly of the twin peaks, "Eagle Peak" but Wietse and I politely decided to rename it due to a plethora of peaks already named after that majestic bird of prey. It took us a while to come up with "Whistable" but it seemed to fit the fact that the summits are pretty much the same height and located nicely between Table and Whistler Mountains.

I love your name of Whitstable Peaks much better than my Eagle Peak - which is rather uninspired in comparison.
