Bob Sihler has a nice defense of Badlands scrambling on the Area/Range page, so I just thought I'd attach this as informational. You can see two of us scrambling up a feature in this picture. (Click to enlarge picture and find the people.)
We're close to topping out, the crusty sandy stuff that makes up these features falls apart at steepness levels well before the ridgeline visible here.
Many of the ridges can be walked or scrambled if you follow the ridgeline the whole way instead of going up the face as here.
Page Scores range from 0% to 100%. The higher the score, the higher the perceived quality of the image. Score is not a simple average of votes, but takes into account the number of votes and the power of the voters.
For every object, a hit is registered each time the object's main page is viewed. A user's hits are the sum of all the hits on the objects he or she owns.
