It's Falling!!!

It's falling over! I thought the photo was tilted horribly until I looked at the horizon. Very cool. Great shot!

Wow!!

That's a killer photo Jim. Nice looking mountain that nobody knows about. I'm inspired to go find something like this mountain in the Mosquitos. Hey, send me a few shots of your two days in the Holy Cross. I'm guessing this one was a really good one. I'm headed out to Carbondale to climb Willoughby and maybe UN13,336 via the East Snowmass Creck Trail on Thurs/ Friday, I'll keep you posted.

North Ridge of Fools

The north ridge of Fools (the central ridge in this picture) is one of the best ridge scrambles in the whole state. If you choose your route carefully you will never exceed class 3 scrambling, however it is very easy to add some spice to the route. The best route passes the third gendarme on the right to attain the deep gully just below the north face proper. The rock quality is excellent but you should still wear a helmet for this one.

re: North Ridge of Fools

Thanks for this info. I've added it to the main page for the peak.
