West side of Holy Cross
This is the west side of the Holy Cross massif seen from the summit of Mt Jackson. I am posting this because of the large number of people who get lost on Holy Cross by descending this slope instead of the correct North Ridge route.

Hopefully seeing the character of this slope from a distance will help people avoid making this mistake in the future. Remember on your ascent to frequently look behind you so that you will recognize the terrain on descent, and while descending west off the upper 300' to continue to work your way back towards your right (north) so that you will pick up the north ridge.
