Lumpy Ridge is a prominent series of rocky cliffs, slabs, and buttresses adjacent to and north of the town of Estes Park, Colorado. Lumpy Ridge lies inside of Rocky Mountain National Park and is well known for rock climbing. The highest point on the ridge are the Needles, at 10,068 feet (3,068.726 m.) on the western edge. Another recognizable feature are the Twin Owls, which, when viewed from Estes Park, actually look like owls. The slab of stone they rest on is known as the Roosting Ramp.
Famous quotes containing the word ridge:
“I hate journalists. There is nothing in them but tittering jeering emptiness. They have all made what Dante calls the Great Refusal.... The shallowest people on the ridge of the earth.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
