To get to the ruin , 40 feet above, you have to climb a ladder bolted to the cliff. One by one you climb to the top. A massive white pine log blocks the way. It's as if the Anasazi put it there when they left in the 1290s to tell people to stay out.

Keet Seel ("Broken pieces of pottery" in Navajo) is a Kayenta Anasazi Cliff Dwelling.
