Picture of a fateful decision

Near Shafer Trail &Thelma and Louise Point, Utah

Seeing the distant hillside from this angle pretty much decided for me which route to
take to scramble up to the mesa across the river (top left). The gradient was not
nearly as bad as I surmised from previous views elsewhere. However, I still wanted
to inspect the slope with binoculars to settle any doubts. I'll leave it to the
viewer to figure out what route would provide access to the mesa.
