Saddle Benchmark
February 5, 2022

Saddle Benchmark, the peak. The wonderful ramp I followed up is in the sun to the right

Looking down at the ramp I just ascended

Now on the higher slopes, it flattens out nicely

That's the top up ahead. Lotsa cholla

This is the highest rock, I believe. Neat shot in which Woolsey Peak is centered

The mesa slopes away heading east

Southwest view, the Yellow Medicine Butte and its pointy neighbor in the back, Cortez Peak too

Slightly different angle, more cholla
