Obviously Capitol's world...

Obviously Capitol's world famous knife's edge, with the Pierre Lakes on the left and Snowmass peak on the upper left horizon, and the Maroon Bells waaaay over on the left edge. I'm in the brown pants, perched. Photo by Dan Bayer, Aspen Times.

Re: Scary!

You'll have to ask Dan Bayer from The Aspen Times in Aspen, Colorado. He took the photo for a news article on a mountaineering class I was taking from Colorado Mountain College. Being there is more fun than looking at the pic, though. Being scared is half the fun!

Re: Scary!

If I had to guess, I'd say a 16mm fisheye lens...

smoke and mirrors

This wacked out distorted picture makes the knife edge look 1000 times harder than it is. If you're expecting this, you'll laugh your ass off when you see the real knife edge.

Sure it's distorted...

the picture is from a fish-eye lense. The knife's edge is still difficult enough.

I'd love to take a pic like this of CA's Mt. Russell (east ridge), what with that convex curve & all......
