Expected Performance of a Neutrino Telescope for Seeing AGN/GC Behind a Mountain

We study the expected performance of building a neutrino telescope, which targets at energy greater than 10^14 eV utilizing a mountain to interact with neutrinos. The telescope's efficiency in converting neutrinos into leptons is first examined. Then using a potential site on the Big Island of Hawaii, we estimate the acceptance of the proposed detector. The neutrino flux limit at event rate 0.3/year/half decade of energy is estimated to be comparable to that of AMANDA neutrino flux limit at above 10^16 eV.
