It feels safe

the rock was more solid higher up on the Southwest Ridge of Mount Sneffels.

I have a question ..

Do you ever look DOWN when you climb ???

That would be my Achilles Heel. I would want
to look DOWN if I was that high UP.

Re: I have a question ..

I liked to look down. It is not so bad.

The better the exposure..... the better the climb.

Re: Nice

This was also my first 14er, it was a great day out and we finished up on the drive into ouray with some great limestone sport climbing at overlook wall.

Re: Nice

Are you sure it's limestone. It looks a lot
like Quartzite.

You can't BEAT the Rocky MTNS for BEAUTY.

Just my two cents worth ..

Re: Nice

There is different rock all around ouray. The overlook wall is limestone very similar to rifle Colorado limestone.

GREAT! I keep telling myself I WANT to go there, but NOBODY ever listens to me.

In my next Life, I plan to become a Raven.

Re: lovely exposed

Thanks Tomek, it actually did not feel that exposed to me, but I guess rock climbers look at the exposure differently. Colorado is interesting that you can summit many peaks over 4000 meters on a dry land (compared to the glaciated Alps).
