The far ridge, with White BM the left bump, and the Beacon the right bump

Now a little closer in

View up the canyon to the saddle below White BM

At the saddle. White BM is directly above, the beacon to the right

Hiking up to White BM

In this image, the Beacon summit is clearly higher than Pyrite Summit, which is seen to the Beacon's right. I am about at head level with the White BM summit

View of the beacon from White BM's summit

Closing in on the beacon

The beacon

Look back at White BM's summit from the beacon

View east, with the parking lot that gray patch in the distance

View of the Sierra Estrella as I hike out. Note the dust clouds

The two witness markers. I could not find the actual benchmark
