Do you ever look DOWN when you climb ???

That would be my Achilles Heel. I would want
to look DOWN if I was that high UP.

I liked to look down. It is not so bad.

Liba, this was my very first 14er and route. It is hard to beat.

Are you sure it's limestone. It looks a lot
like Quartzite.

You can't BEAT the Rocky MTNS for BEAUTY.

Just my two cents worth ..

There is different rock all around ouray. The overlook wall is limestone very similar to rifle Colorado limestone.

GREAT! I keep telling myself I WANT to go there, but NOBODY ever listens to me.

In my next Life, I plan to become a Raven.

Thanks Tomek, it actually did not feel that exposed to me, but I guess rock climbers look at the exposure differently. Colorado is interesting that you can summit many peaks over 4000 meters on a dry land (compared to the glaciated Alps).
