Black Hills, SD Expedition No. 100: Lupe stands atop a limestone pillar at the high spot at the NW end and top of the "anchor" formed by Peak 6740. This spot is one of 5 scattered high points on the mountain and is near where the summit is shown on Peakbagger. Lupe's human porter has some doubts as to whether this is the true summit or not, but liked this photo of Lupe grinning back from the rock (2014-10-16). Photo by Lupe Lunde.
