A old thread. I asked Philipp Kobel about the photo and his response was this:
I just checked the exif-data of that picture. It was taken in 2005 on July 1. Not really shure about the location. It could either be on the ascent to Silver oder Muir pass. I really like to remember that great time we had on our 2005 PCT hike Mexico to Canada! Although it was hard work sometimes especially in the High Sierra due to a heavy snowpack.
Hope this information helps you out.
