i don't understand why people feel the need to respond with a comment like the one above. Is it self-amusement? The need to feel noticed? Maybe they thrive on knowledge and their superiority makes them happy in the shorts. Hmm... Anyhow, congrats... you look like an asshole.
Nice pic!

I don't understand people who say "nce pic" but don't bother to vote a rating. I really am curious about that extra rope.

@potreroed, probably a haul line. Can't tell for sure but if so than it should be on the haul loop, which that specific harness does have.
If it's just clipped to the gear loop, than it would not have anything on it and may be used as an anchor or to set another rope at some point. It does say "first pitch", and multiple ropes are used in multi-pitch climbs.

Oh, and why did you rate both of your own comments? That's cheating!

The rope was so that we could bring up a third person. After this picture I hooked it on my haul loop. I just clipped it real fast anywhere so that I could take a pic and move on :)

He didn't rate his own comment - that's what he voted the picture.

You're welcome.

I guess what confused me is that the extra rope seems to be tied somewhere in the middle, not at the end, which would be the logical place for trailing a rope.

This girl is a smokeshow. I wish there were more like her at the local crag, might make me climb harder, hah.

Anyone read the Rock & Ice article on how bets help you send? I can definitely see this happening... An excerpt

"An old friend of mine from the U.K. once told me that he soloed a route—now here’s a reason—“Because this really pretty girl smiled at me.” He immediately turned and began charging his dumb ass up the first route at hand, not even knowing its name or grade.

Halfway up the route, he flamed, and shouted for his friends to run to the top of the crag and drop a rope. The line descended, hovering, with a loop and a carabiner on the end. He stared at it, unable to let go with either arm, and finally sprang outward and grabbed it with one hand, shouting, as the friends lowered him down toward a gathering crowd, “Faster! Faster!” "

I've made up my mind. Henceforth, anyone who looks like that will be allowed to climb with me.

If you use a go-pro you better be an elite athlete, or filming one. This chick looks like neither applies, its difficult to climb hard when makeup is dripping into your eyes.

Who are you to say that someone can't climb with a GoPro? Quit being a prick and appreciate that people are enjoying themselves, even if they may want to document it.

why is everyone picking on this poor girl's pics? Shes hott and she climbs, move on. I am assuming it is they are just jealous their G/F's dont look like her, and if they do they dont climb. good for her for climbing and looking good doing it! and i GoPro everything i do, even the stuff i suck at! always good for a laugh!

nickrp - your comments about the GoPro are a perfect case for why people make fun of GoPro users. Also, my wife is way hotter (to me) than this girl, and climbs way better too. So much for your assumptions, lol.

Wow, so many petty assholes. Can't people just comment something nice, or not comment at all?

Nichole - you're a fine figure of a lass and very pretty. The photo itself is nothing great but you are. I'll not say more for fear of being called a dirty old sod except you'd look even better with a little less eye makeup. Wow.

As for Colins comment about the GoPro, don't be so harsh on him. He's climbed with me and my GoPro but he'll get a slap if he considers me any kind of elite climber. :-p

pretty lady, but the pic has VERY little to do with climbing. this picture continually being on the front page perfectly illustrates what is wrong with this site.
