I wandered through the Needles with my dog last summer from Molas Pass, up into Vestal and Storm King Basins then south by Lake Silex, staying as high as I could and scrambling on peaks here and there. I dropped into the head of Noname Creek from a notch just north of Jagged Peak and looked at these peaks. I couldn't help but think that the cluster of numbered and named peaks around the heads of Noname and Ruby basins are some of the most spectacular, jagged, high elevation rock formations in the Rockies (in the Rockies of the continental U.S. that is). The best looking rock I saw was probably right there where the above pictures were taken. But the fact that it looked good doesn't mean it is...I discovered that on some of my scrambles.
