A new aerial photograph of the Cresteds Butte in north-eastern Louisiana shows the elevation of the iconic mountain climbing route on the summit.
The photograph, taken by the French-language satellite service Satellites in the Air, shows the ridge, the highest point on the ridge in the United States, as it is seen from above.
The crest is located in the lower elevations of the eastern slopes of the Louisiana mountain range, but is a major route for the Mountaineering Association of New Orleans.
The Crested buttes peak, known locally as “The Mountain” for its steepness, is a popular climbing destination in the region.
According to the Association of Mountaineers, the CrestEDT is the most popular climbing route in the world.
A series of recent attempts have taken the ridge and other climbing routes along the ridge into the lower mountains of New Mexico and Arizona.
The ridge has been a major climbing destination for the American Alpine Club since the 1960s, and climbers have been able to climb and ascend the peak for more than 60 years.
In the 1990s, a group of climbers took part in a dramatic ascent of the ridge.
More recently, several teams of climbers and mountaineers have made significant progress in climbing the ridge using GPS devices, satellite phones and rope anchors.
On a recent visit to the area, French-Canadian climber Pierre-Joseph Boissonneault and American Greg Fiske made major progress on the Crestled butte on Friday.
Boissonseault and Fiskel completed a 1,500-foot ascent of The Mountain on Saturday.
It is hoped that the Crestted butte can be climbed again, and that it can be used as a route to higher altitudes for climbing.
The mountain is known locally in New Orleans as “the mountain” for the steepness of the climbing.
“The mountain’s name means ‘mountain without footfall’, which is very true,” said Dave Ellington, director of operations for the USGS.
“The CrestEDTs elevation is over 2,000 feet, but in the early 1900s, there was a group who used ropes to anchor on the top of the mountain.
That was an amazing experience, but it wasn’t really safe, because there was no way to anchor there without having ropes in the ground.”
Ellington said it is estimated that more than 1,000 climbers have climbed The Mountain in recent years.
The group has not been successful in climbing The Mountain, and is working on another route.
