I've seen that one, and it's more of a compass than a peace sign.

Guy: I thought that too, until I got closer.

Adam: Well done. I figured somebody would recognize it.

what’s funny is I've never actually gone to the other summit but instantly recognised the first photo because of all the photos of it posted here on this forum over the years. Then Adams picture confirmed it.

Oh! I just realized I've seen Adam's pic before, in a TR where I posted a reply, just earlier this year. :oops:

recent sightings:

Fifteen high, baby!
I was shocked that I was able to keep going and going and going, like the energizer bunny.
