Another Subpeak with a nice tower for views. The easiest climb in the NP. Elevation established by USGS marker on top of Tower but inconsistant elevations in the park and USGS literature. Difference may be the USGS marker is on the top of a man-made tower not on the ground and I have seen both EL BM 941 meters (3,087) given and Elevation 3,075 (i presume the ground although i would guess the Tower floor is more than 12 feet above ground but not much more than that). I used the USGS BM which is on the rock tower since everybody climbs there for the overlook anyway. The saddle is poorly documented. It is above the ridge at 900 meters plus; but how much? I am using 2980 as best guess but could be off by as much as 20 feet. The feeling of isolation and prominence is from the views south, east, and west. The ridge to the north kills the actual prominence.

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.
