Separated from the neighbouring Pinnacle Mountain by a high, airy col, Eiffel peak is a mountain in the limestone and shale range right across the world famous Ten Peaks' Valley. It is also quite close to Mount Temple, the highest non-technical peak in the Canadian Rockies. The entire area is a climbers' and hikers' paradise.
Access to Eiffel Peak is through the Larch Valley trail and then by gaining the obvious ridge which extends SE from the peak. Just park at Morraine Lake and take the trail, and leave the trail about halfway up. Visual orientation is straightforward. Alan Kane's guide to the Rockies has a good description. The main route is a somewhat difficult scramble - orientation is easy but some of the terrain is steep and thus not for the faint of the heart (and is easier ascending than descending). The advantage is that one doesn't have to bushwhack on the approach. Take an ice axe if snow cover persists. This is a classic Canadian Rockies summit at a fraction of the effort required for some of the more remote mountains there.

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch. It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction. The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
