Default Peak identification - Cline River area

I was looking at some photos from a backpacking trip I did in the area around the Cline River in David Thompson Country several years back and was interested to know what some of the peaks were that I was looking at. I hope to someday go back and explore the area further. I took a part of the Pinto Lake and Lake of the Falls Trails.

So first, there's this mountain:

I remember it being one of the first mountains you see after turning at the Lake of the Falls/Pinto Lake trail junction, along Entry Creek. Anyone know what mountain this is?

Further along the trail:

The trail to Lake of the Falls skirts the slope on the right (west) side of this mountain. Purple Mountain?

To the left of that mountain and looking south, there's a gnarly looking pointy peak (1) and a more gentle mountain farther away (2) that I think might be Mt Hensley?

Along the Pinto Lake Trail, past the Lake of the Falls junction, the terrain opens up along the Cline River. Looking west:

I know (1) is Minster Mountain, but what about (2), (3) and (4)? I was thinking (3) might be Cirrus Mountain?

Looking north into the Whitegoat Wilderness:

What could (1) and (2) be?

Looking south:

I'm certain (1) is one of the Whitegoat Peaks, but not sure which. Gruff Peak? And (2) with the long summit ridge is Christen Peak?

Thanks for the help.

I am not particularly familiar with Cline area, but on this photo:

3) is definitely Cirrus, 2) is something in Mt. Saskatchewan area (maybe Castelets?) while 4) is probably Athabasca

Check out Steven Song reports from David Thompson area, he will know for sure. Also check Peakfinder
