Pilot and Index
Pilot Peak and Index Peak seen from the Beartooth Highway early in the morning. Pilot Peak is one of the most distinctive peaks in Greater Yellowstone, and the 5.6 standard route on it is known for extreme exposure and hideous rock quality. Index Peak is also a technical summit with the same type of rock.

Absaroka Range, WY-- July 2010

Thanks, Tomek; I love moody skies, though not for climbing under!

Those are cliff bands, but a road does run nearby. However, it is a long approach and climb for either peak if someone wants to do it in a day.
