The Mandrill


The mandrill (Mandrillus sphinx) is a primate of the Old World monkey (Cercopithecidae) family,[4] closely related to the baboons and even more closely to the drill. It is found in southern Cameroon, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, and Congo. Mandrills mostly live in tropical rainforests and forest-savanna mosaics. They live in groups called hordes.

Goodman hooked up a few photos of Wilder and I trying the Beauty Mtn. project.  The route got done a few days after these photos where taken and I named it the Mandrill.
