The Maidens. Arigetch Peaks.

Late evening light slants across the carved faces of East and West Maiden.

The twin spires of the spectacular Maidens are one of the highlights of the Arrigetch Peaks in the central Brooks Range. A mecca for climbers the granite walls were first scaled by a group comprising Charles Loucks, Michael Westmacott, Sally Westmacott and Robley Williams Jr. in July 1964. Mike Westmacott was one of the supporting crew in the first ascent of Mt Everest in 1953. Simply awesome rock faces.
