Incorrect picture

How do I report an incorrect picture?

The picture here is of neighboring point 7657. I plan to add a correct picture tomorrow when I get all my pictures from this weekend logged.

Hmm, you are right. Now that I look at the pic closely I believe it is a picture of the rock outcroppings where the Eye of the Sandias is located. However, where is Pt 7657 that you mentioned? The summit of 7420 is conical when viewed from the south. I have some picture somewhere but I'll let you post yours since I'm not sure I can find mine.

Click on the link and look just north (scroll the small topo or open the large topo and zoom north of 7420). The eye of the Sandias I walked by and it is located just SW of 7420. I'm 99 percent certain this is 7657 because the "summit" of 7657 has a 2 foot crack between the summit bolders. I had to climb the south boulder and jump the crack. There is also a huge boulder just south of the summit (15 feet) that has an odd flatish cover which is also in the picture. I don't have a picture from this view because 7860 was too hard to get to (from this angle) and I wanted to get back to the car before sunset. I think I might give it a second try from a different angle (Three Gun TH probably) in two weeks.

I'll post pictures later today. Also the photo on 7860 is really grainy...I can't really tell what peak that is. But I don't know if the bump on the ridge from the saddle that I ended at (just NE of 7657) is the summit of 7860. So I'll abstain till I reach that peak on that picture.

Ah, I see it, that picture does fit that ridge well so it could be the ridge and not 7420. I always called that ridge "boulder ridge" in my mind because of all the massive boulders there, very cool place. I only did 7860 once since I preferred 7420 because of the scrambling. 7860 had a very broad flat summit, however there is a small summit boulder may be 8-10 feet high. There is a smaller boulder under it making it a very easy (class 2+?) scramble. Being on the boulder gets you above the scrubby trees in the area. Views are the same as 7420 for the most part. I have a page on Summit Post for both 7420 and 7860 including pictures of both:

7860: http://www.summitpost.org/point-7860/415546
7420: http://www.summitpost.org/point-7420/415156

I used to live 1/4 mile from the Copper TH so I'm very familiar with the area. I've probably been up U-Mound more than most people :-D

Three Gun is nice, especially in winter because it stays so warm. That route would add a bit of mileage I think but if you're looking for a change of scenery it would be good. 7860 would also be doable from Embudo since the trail along boulder ridge eventually hits Embudo up higher but that would be a longer hike.

You are dead on. I added a picture from "boulder ridge" of 7420.

So what you are kindly saying is I have to scramble though this stuff:
http://www.summitpost.org/pt-7860-summit/415905/c-415546
to get to 7860. *sigh* That is going to suck.

Haha, well yes but don't worry. Although it looks bad the brush and trees are somewhat thin allowing plenty of distance between trees. I was able to follow a faint trail at first. It faded and I found segments here and there for a little while but then I lost it. From where you leave boulder ridge it doesn't take long and is fairly easy since you don't have to gain much elevation.

Removed the photo (shown below):

Here's a look at the satellite imagery centered on the 7657 point (looks exactly like the split boulder):
