That's a good shot of Pettingel's north ridge as well.
This is a gorgeous mountain from this angle, one of Colorado's most symetrical and beautiful. Your pics are much better than mine from this day. Thanks for submitting, dahlink!
The North Ridge Route and the Continental Divide Trail route are both seen in this magnificent picture, seen from the Continental Divide (CD). The CD route follows the ridge line from the left, which joins the East Ridge route.
The spectacular North Ridge route climbs from the shimmering green basin below the cliffs, up the ridge on the right (Class 3) toward the summit. A fun and exciting climb!
