Thanks, Jon! My original plan was to continue to Navajo, but the wind, the fresh snow, and the rotten rock slowed me down. The scenery is first class; it's a pity the rock is definitely not, otherwise I would highly recommend this ridge.

This great scenery reminds me a little bit on a rock formation at Hochalmspitze in Austria!
