I have admired this ridge since my first forays to the IPW 4 years ago. This is quite an accomplishment Fabio. Congratulations. That had to have been privledged terrain.

Re: Spectacular

Thanks, Jon! My original plan was to continue to Navajo, but the wind, the fresh snow, and the rotten rock slowed me down. The scenery is first class; it's a pity the rock is definitely not, otherwise I would highly recommend this ridge.

Very nice shot!

This great scenery reminds me a little bit on a rock formation at Hochalmspitze in Austria!

Re: Very nice shot!

Thanks! Yes, there is resemblance. We even have a proper Stone Man here in Colorado.
