Also, it just came up because of a recent rash of such photos. I thought it would be best to be open about the policy and let everyone know, since *I* didn't know it existed before, so I thought y'all would want to know too.

Like the rest of the mods and eds team, it's mostly an honorary title similar to "Vice President", "Largest Nose", or "Longest Putt."

We really don't do anything.

Cheesetit fixt.

There's nothing inherently wrong with two young ladies stick clippin' a bolt & making their way toward the heavens. But put them in a grainy, blurry photo at ground level with their backs to the camera... plus said gumby thong... and boom. Hello, Worst photos of RC.com.

And now that my self inflicted ban is over, here's some nice stuff:


http://www.rockclimbing.com/...he_PILOT_119294.html
Probably wouldnt be too bad, if it werent for that weird photoshop filter. His arms look like he inseminated a cow during her period! Also why is this a png? (though that probably only adds to the badness of the photo for computer nerds…)


http://www.rockclimbing.com/...d_Angels_119248.html
Not that bad either, but just some of the standards, but quite a lot of them at once: blownout sky, compression, tilted pic and generally not many interesting details.

No for some real genuine indoor badness!

Or not. Lets start out harmless. Not good, but not too bad. Personally i wouldnt have uploaded it, but its still an OK "hey, look what i can do and gym XX!" pic.

And then theres this goldmine:

MONSTER ENERGY!!!!!!!!!!111!!1!!!!!!!

Those poor anorexic boulderers!

Please, someone give that guy a sandwhich! Where are all the Trad climbers with their ham sammiches? Those guy needs an emergency ration now!


http://www.rockclimbing.com/...the_cube_119267.html
This guy doesnt need a sandwich.
Apart from the fucked up ratio, i also really like the thing he has going with his chalk bag! (the shadow on the wall however is a really nice touch. Too bad that the photo is so hilarious otherwise)


http://www.rockclimbing.com/...tle_Wall_119271.html
I am missing a proper scale, so i might be wrong, but toprope?

Thats a boulder wall!

Keep in mind that having a photo you uploaded to rc.com posted in this thread is both a great honor and a great shame. When you lower the bar, you water down the meaning. Although for some folks who don't approve of this thread in the first place, I guess that might be a good thing.

Actually, I think you are missing scale -- that looks 20-25 feet up to me. Many gyms top-rope things at that height, quite reasonably.

Using the table and benches to the right of the wall for scalle, I'm guessing bowling the belay is the MO here. Could be entertaining. Laugh
