I hate to say it....

but I see a great climbing line. The fluting on the left, the only one with no rock in it that goes right to the rocks below the summit. Gosh, I want to climb it.

Re: I hate to say it....

Wow - that would be absolutely terrifying! You should climb it and take lots of pictures to share with us ... I don't think that one is in my future!
