I didn't really know the whole story about access. If the story is true and they gave that guy millions for access rights I'll still go around. Approach through Navajo basin much prettier.
Illegal in Telluride? What is the world coming too? This ridge is just like it looks. Straight as an arrow. Awsome postition! Just a small little facey section at tth notch. Wear your sticky shoes and you'll think you are in Kansas.
Loki Shoes? maybe soon! Next, ski the north Face!
Me and seth spotted this on the way up and decided to give it a try. we did it from the notch after quite a scree climb. it is very cool!
and surprising it is in none of the books
returned via the west ridge.
hopefully something good will happen with the problems at silver pick.
