Summit Ridge of Mt. Meeker

The summit ridge of Mt. Meeker is seen looking west from the east (false) summit to the true summit. Reaching the summit requires traversing the knife-edge ridge seen in the foreground, or traversing steep slopes on either side, to reach the bathtub-size rock seen on top. The right (north) side ends in sheer cliffs, while the left side continues steeply down for about a mile.
