Siyeh summit

An intimidating, yet magnificent perch. Atop one of the prongs of the Crown of the Continent with the tallest vertical cliff in the Lower 48 below me; the 4,200 ft. drop down the north face of Siyeh.

Impressive

Looks like there is still a lot of loose rubble on the ledge right in front of you. Cheers.

Re: Impressive

Thanks for the comment. The loose rubble is one thing, the probability that the hunk of rock that I'm standing on will cleave from the larger cliff with a little freeze/thaw action is another. 'Take the dang picture before this thing decides to detach' was the thought running through my mind.

Re: Wow!

Yeah, my heart was beating pretty fast hanging out above that sheer drop off of several thousand feet! It was also one of the most exhilirating moments I've experienced.
