This shows the top of Granite Peak as one approaches it. If you look carefully you can see a man standing on the bottom left side of the picture. This shows just how big the cliff front is, because this cliff extends about four times the distance shown. Although this cliff averages out to about 75 degree grade upward (basicly a cliff) it is very manage to climb without ropes.
