The closest part of the North Cascades Highway is about 2500 feet (760m) below.

I agree with Derek's comment. I have seen this photo several times and always wanted to comment. The photo has background and foreground of interest. Again there is the element of exposure. Few make this climb, yet many would like to experience this rare space. There is no easy way up, and the rock quality is extremely good. I saw a trip report of "Rebel Yell" on Chianti Spire, also in this photo. It is very inspiring and reminds me of this route. These are the rare delights in Washington State. I think I may have to add more routes to my wish list.
