I know this is a dumb question but I can't figure it out for the life of me, What exactly is Queens Chair on Hood?

I've climbed Leuthold before and understand the approximate location of it but is it a specific feature? Or just a term for a general area? I've scoured trip reports, maps, and photos but still can't figure it out for myself so it's time to publicly ask the dumb question. A pic would be appreciated if possible!

Queen's chair is simply the more-or-less flat area up there.

Basically there is a flat area where all of the routes between sunshine counter clockwise to Leuthold top out. If you do a rising rightward traverse to the ridge high on Leuthold you will bypass the QC.

That makes sense! I had a feeling it was something like that. We definitely did a high rightward traverse on leuthold which would explain us bypassing it too.

Thanks for the pic, that makes it very clear.

Its the place where the Queen sat her fat ass in the snow and let her feet dangle down in the Sandy snow whilst Joe Leuthold brought up her parasol to shade her from the Sunshine.
