Red line-NF Variation, blue line-approximate line of Ormes NF route.  Does anyone know if this is the rap route line (and if so, if it is still there?).  We did not have time to summit and had to take the standard route back down.  Looking longingly......I believe a route has been done on the SW ridge to the left of the East Face  I'm sure the East Face of Pigeon has more lines to be done (the right side looked the most promising).  A cool tower on the south side of Animas Mtn.
