This marker was just off the side of the trail and not on any peak.
Very little ice here right now. Earlier and later in the year the ice grows and covers the trail. This is why there are cables on posts.

Interesting pinnacles of rock near Mount Muir. Mount Whitney is just visible to the far left.
Here is one of the so called "windows" along the trail
