Pettingell Peak is the high point of Grand Country in Colorado, and a great 13’er near Herman Lake. Getting to the top requires a bit of class 3 rock scrambling and is definitely not advised for those who have an extreme fear of heights or exposure. The weather was pretty nice for most of the day, although we did get caught in a brief snow and rainstorm about 25 minutes from the top.
