Crux pitch of NE Face, Pingora.

Perhaps others who have done it and another option will chime in on how they compare to each other. <br /> <br />Link to MP.com discussion: <a href='http://www.mountainproject.com/v/crux-pitch-of-ne-face-pingora-which-way/109395485#a_109397003' >www.mountainproject.com/v/crux-pitch-of-ne-face-pingora-whic>>></a>  Unmarked-photo credit to SuperTopo user PellucidWombat (<a href='http://www.supertopo.com/tr/Pingora-NE-Face/t12248n.html)' target='_blank' rel='nofollow' >www.supertopo.com/tr/Pingora-NE-Face/t12248n.html)</a> with overlayed excerpt from <a href='http://SummitPost.org' target='_blank' rel='nofollow' >SummitPost.org</a> topo  Crux pitch of NE Face, Pingora.
