In this photo my understanding is that the red line is the Gash Ridge (AKA East Ridge). What is the ridge circled in blue? Has anyone on SP climbed it? Is this on the NE Face?

In this photo the Gash Ridge is seen again in red, but from a different vantage point. Are there any routes on the SE Face (Green Box)?

The Blue circle is the Gash ridge (it has a gash in it...). I climbed it a few years ago. Very very good and exposed scrambling by Colorado standards. The red is the first part of the descent route but it is difficult to find a good way off the ridge. MattH99

I believe the picture of the southeast face you have is the face that's located on Trinchera Rance which is private property. I've been up there in their little hut and from what I've seen it's total choss. kboofis

From looking at in GoogleEarth it looks like that red line in the first picture is the Little Bear to Blanca ridgeline kboofis
