Beautiful day.

Beautiful day.

Hitchcock Pinnacle holds a certain degree of nostalgia for every climber who's ever been on it. Fun, easy, striking... It was my first lead in 1998. The day this photo was taken, I took several people climbing for the first time. Hitchcock Pinnacle will for ever be the first rock climbing experience had for Andrea, Jenna, and Mike. Photographer: Robert Higginson.

too bad the climber is in the shade. Good pic nonetheless.

can you increase the contrast/brightness to bring out the climber? Might be an 9 then! Was that a dyno, or a hang off that jug for a pic?

I have a lot of pictures of the day, unfortunately that side of the rock was in the shade. But it made for a nice back drop. You can check the others out <a href="http://www.buenavistaclimbingclub.com/Lemmon/Windy_Point/index.htm"> HERE </a> Also, I have dynoed for that HUGE hold before, but this was just a hang to show some friends how huge the hold was, and not to worry about the level of climbing. (It was their first time.) I didn't know my brother was taking the shot. They all did FANTASTIC for their first time.

There is only one, but a couple of good cam and nut placements. The bolt is by my waist.
