This newly popular peak is accessed by a rebuilt hiking trail that offers easy and pleasant access to an open summit with expansive and scenic views of the surrounding area, including Glacier Peak, the Monte Cristo peaks, Sloan, Three Fingers, Index, Baring, Gunn, Daniel, Hinman, Baker, and many others.

This peak is not the highest on the Becker Peak massif, however. A rugged monolith in the center of Beckler's craggy crest is a few feet higher than the peak reached by the trail. The terrain is very difficlut on this crest and accessing the monolith and climbing it are for experienced scramblers only. Many parties will need a rope to gain the high point.

Despite its low prominence, this popular summit is still referred to as "Becker Peak" on this site, since most hikers who reach this summit don't care that a nearby crag is technically a bit higher. They are happy to revel in the scenery, enjoying the fun journey to what they assume is the real Beckler Peak.

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 www.attrinity.com 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.
