Lizard Head

Lizard Head

The Lizard Head is considered by many climbers to be the most difficult summit in Colorado. The crumbly neck of volcanic tuff rises 400 feet from its base to the elevation of 13,113 feet. The first known people to reach the top of the pinnacle were Albert Ellingwood and Barton Hoag in 1920. Photo taken from the Black Face Ridge.

Re: Sehr schön!

Vielen Dank, Eric...
that peak really had a top, which made it look more like a lizard. It fell down about 30 years ago.

My favorite peak to photograph. I am definitely going to climb it and I'd like to lead it. Like most beautiful things, it is dangerous

Re: Beautiful

yeah... there are better climbs in the area, the rock is rotten, but the peak is amazing.
