This would have been way better if you were actually leaning back over the edge. That's the shot I wanted.
Not bad for a "below" shot.
Color is cool, though.
that's a pretty sweet pic
love the sun streaks. adds good contrast
I like how the alluring part of the picture isn't necessarily the climber. My eyes gravitate toward the folks on the beach.
But it's not a guy, and so I'm somehow drawn to the pic, though I'm not sure why...
wow, is that a camera trick or is it really that dangerous-looking?
Weird contrast. Came out kind of cool except for the glare on the mid-to-upper right. Nice shot.
Dali-esque with the "melting" rocks in the background. Sweet pic. When I first saw it I thought it was an ad for something.
Is that Andy Dick?
I'll be there in a month - nice to see what it looks like in advance.
Yeah, I owe you a beer.
Shoot, and there's a lot of non-climbers who use the area too!
You're going to love it if you make it.
Near Trapps - top of first pitch on Baskerville Terrace
Heh. Looks worse than it is. Two fixed pitons with webbing make the rap / belay station. I backed them up with a couple of cams and a nut to be safe. Add in double ropes for my own anchor and my shoes, and you've got a much-less-worse-than-it-is photo op. =)
That's why I've got back-up plugged in. And yes, if the rock goes, so does the whole system, but if that's all there is then that's all there is. I was less worried about the rock than the pitons, though.
I tend to not trust anchors just because they are there. I wasn't attached to the pitons at all, in fact. I was completely on the cams and nut. Three pieces make an anchor, in my mind. My climber was on the pitons, with one sling looped to one of the cams as a backup. No excess, really. A pretty simple anchor without using the assumed strength of the fixed pieces.
Boy, that looks like a nice line.
really nice perspective
Yeah, glad you have a winter partner that's not me.
Nice shot, dude.
A tongue would probably work, too
You're missing the nose
This is a nice pic. Well done.
You in hueco? Usted es caliente. Oh yeah, not a big fan of the lighting like everyone else is, but I do like both the contrast and blend of colors.
Interesting colors. Kind of looks like graffiti
Really nice pic. Puts the magnitude of the climber vs the climbed in perspective.
It was an impressive ascent
Heh, Kayak - way to take away from the struggling beached whale!
Don't barndoor now...
Pics has a nice, airy feel to it. It hink the dangling gear helps with that.
nice shot, but there's something missing. Not sure what, but I feel as if I need more to fully take it all in contrast. Weird, 'cause I feel the same way about Ansel Adams photos, too.
a fantastic route all around
Yeah, and this 5.6 section is no gimme either.
hmmm...needs more chicks.
Very nice. Congrats guys!
If Ratherbe is feeling well, then this is one of my demons I hope to conquer this weekend: CCK, Shockley's, Son of Easy O, Hold the Mayo, Oscar and Charlie's, but CCK is a definite. This is an inspiring photo. Well done!
Looks like you finally made it, Magnus! Congrats!
Rest in peace Sty.
Finding the climber is like finding the route in this photo. Nice symetry in that regard. Well done.
Nice pic. I was there not too long ago and have a similar shot, but it isn't nearly of a high quality as this.
Wow - that is a nice send chossy. That thing is huge!
I kind of like this, and yet I don't, and yet I still do. Hmmm...
pretty sweet pic
Pink Dress! HAHAHAAA, you suckers. YOU LOSE!
I didn't do what she did, but I'll tell ya, this route was way easier than it looked. It was totally intimidating right up to top, but all the holds kind of magically appeared when you needed them.
Despite my actual name, I'm also a Macleod. Skye was very nice, and this is further proof of that.
gotta watch out for rogue waves, though. They're popular where I'm from. Take away a couple of people every few years.
just like a complex, everyone's got one.
yeah, that's really me taking a picture of me
didn't notice that until now. that's kinda funny.
Turned out to be a rather important call, actually. Not going to reveal it's contents (personal), but several phone calls followed into the night thereafter.
still a nice shot regardless of rotation
I swear, it looks as if she isn't wearing a top. Not that that's what I was checking out!!!
I really like this shot. It gives good perspective.
A little dark, but the action is good. I like this better than most Bonnie shots because of how the climber and gear are hanging in space. The clouds give good exposure, too.
You know, I've found taking foliage shots at the Gunks to be very difficult. The landscape just doesn't offer perfect conditions.
I like the contrast
Yeah, but you're "cracklover". We mortals found the face pretty easy and the pod damn near impossible.
crack is too flaring, so no, no bomber nuts can be had. The wire blocks the shape of the crack, so you can't see it that well.
Yeah, it was dark, and I'm not a PS user (well, I don't use anything), but maybe I should invest in this.
Hmmm, see I find that the climber is the one constant in all the chaos, but I kind of like that kind of photo - where the eye has to work to find action. I can sympathize with your comment, though.
Yes, that's a pretty flat photo. Lots of weird hills and inclines rising up to Pike's Peak (just out of the pic on the right)
Wow, that's a haunting final pic then. Hope his condition improves.
not sure that's tilted.
good point. I actually try to do a guttenberg (sp?) diagonal when taking photos, so that's why the junk is in the photo, but that doesn't help that the climber is dead center with nothing of substance down to the right.
You're setting me up for rating crack as a 5-star aren't you? Yeah, yeah, it's a nice shot. I admit, it's pretty there. And the climbing aspect adds to the photo. But man, it's effn crack!?!?!
I don't notice a difference between this and the other one. I like it, personally, and I like the fact that the climber almost seems to be an unexpected addition to what could otherwise be a vista shot. It's kind of like, "hey, nice pic of the cliff - oh wow! there's a climber there. cool."
Congrats on that man! Keep crankin!
btw - you should link the photos to regions at least so we know where they are.
Looks so much taller from this perspective
the perspective makes this pitch look harder than it is.
The red helmet does help this pic a little, but it would be just as good completely B&W
Has some nice physical symmetry, but not enough contrast of colors to bring any single subject in the photo out.
The belayor appears to be wearing a Rangers jersey. Weird.
Nice shot though
that's a nice shot. well done.
already pissed at you eh?
Thanks! I loved this place, and that climb in particular.
such a weird but alluring shot
I really like this shot.
I'm not a boulderer, but that's a nice shot!
two fading opposing triangles... ... ...Eureka! I need to call my mom
I have to admit that I kind of like this
Too funny - great shot!
Very appealing. Too bad it isn't easier to get to the tufas.
heh, that's funny
wow! what are the chance those letters would come up in that order! Amazing!!!
are those knots in the rope? Is this some kind of passive aggressive swipe at Majid? Because you know he proved it was possible, right?
You need a pill for that?
somewhere in NoCo
That looks like a pretty cool spot
still a nice photo nonetheless
even as a TR pic, it's still kinda nice
Woooo!!!! Cold, Laz...Wooooooo!!!!!
Wow, what size is that tri-cam?
That's a cool photo.
haven't you heard? the bill is too high due to the water shortage.
yeah, but the approach was a bitch though
do do do do, dododooo, do do do do, dododoooo
Honestly, I wouldn't think either of these guys have ever heard of Tears for Fears
He loves that spotlight
definitely rope grooves, yes. the bolts for the anchor are about 10 feet back from the edge to the right from where the photo was taken.
he actually brought it with him on our River Tower adventure, but he didn't wear it because it was too cold (and windy)
I like. Nice.
Wow, cool shot. Very odd perspective.
It definitely was not. You may have taken one of your own, but this one was on my camera. I took two pics. The other had River Tower off the right and the Fishers off to the left. This is the better of the two.
Edited to fix my quote above ^^
River Tower is to the left and the Fishers to the right in the other photo.
heh - thanks for the vote btw
I really enjoy shots with the height displayed off in the distance.
the perspective is nice, but the climber is difficult on the eyes. maybe a headshot would make it easier to view.
the only thing missing from this pic is the water.
interesting contrast of colors
I don't know what it is, but there's something about this pic that I like.
This is just before the Tyrolean Traverse was set up. GULP!
wow, that's incredible
OK, seriously, which photo mod approved an invalid photo?
very well done. one of the best I've seen here in a while
Why is that pic so dark? Do you have a reputation of taking too long on towers or something?
The color variations are fantastic!
LIAR! - http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos/Sport/Enjoying_Pulling_Pockets_107680.html
Heh. Tis not true though. He may have taken his own photo, but not this one. He didn't send me many photos from those days on River Tower. Only the climbing ones.
I really like this perspective.
Nice, but very small. Is there a larger version available?
Ahhh...Rosyth, where me little hands an' feet learned to climb for the first time. Aye, those were the days.
I was SOOOOO pumped at the end. I basically couldn't climb the rest of the day. Tried Ent's Line right next to it and ended up humping the tree more than climbing the face.
Heh. I backed those up. Remember my photo with all the pins and cams? It was kind of like that.
I originally posted that it was, but upon reflection, I'm placing one in this pic.
Thanks. Naw, the belay was fine. I wanted to clear that roof if I fell, and he would have let out more if I had.
Shitzning bricks!!! He has no gear in!!! AHHHHH!!!
No you didn't. You had your camera. Why would you have mine? If you remember, I lost your lens cap, so I know you had your camera.
Yes dipshit. I already said that. I lost your lens cap, but I gave you your camera back at the top of the tower. I had my own camera. Stop trying to steal my credits!!!
Holy effn swing batman
Thanks. The pic was kind of taken with a concerned leader. She had clipped three very old pins and had only a green alien in otherwise. I believe she is taking a blue alien off her rack to place in this photo, so I was less concerned with framing than I was with the whimpering.
Yup, they're still there, and she was definitely freaked out by them. But she's also cool-headed and kept climbing through it all. Not much gear otherwise.
I think this is nice, but I find the trees on the right somewhat distracting.
Direct was the goal that day, but the sun was in her eyes going up to the right. It was too bright to look up.
We were going to do the direct finish, but the sun was directly in her eyes as she started up. She couldn't look anywhere but side to side. We'll do it next time for sure.
A great shot. Nice capture.
IT'S NOT BS!!!!
Haha! Yup, she's famous.
No, it definitely doesn't. I can't wait to get back up there to do it myself.
this one I like.
There's some specific placements on it, so yeah, but I think we didn't have small enough cams. The leader had RPs instead.
I think the best protection is being good on your feet.
I guess I have to invest in photoshop. I've never been much of a software buying kind of guy, but maybe it's time to move into the modern era.
Wow. Really cool myriad of colors.
^^ That's the alpha dog talking now
There's just something haunting and comforting about the curves and clouds.
Gotta rotate this so it doesn't look like he's crawling
very nice. I wish the climber wasn't right in the middle, though.
She actually mentioned it to me when she saw the pic, but she didn't know what gear to bring, so she brought what she was comfortable with.
I was hoping for a face shot, too, but it never materialized.
Wow, great exposure!
The exposure is phenomenal on this. And the change of rock is interesting, too. Nice shot.
That's actually kind of cool. I like the imagery in this.
wow, looks like there's a lot of rock there.
and why are they in the way?
you're such a bastard ya know
at least my real name isn't Jeff
gotta admit - that's kinda cool
That's pretty sweet. Nice job.
Wow, inspiring line, too.
for a TR pic, it isn't bad.
Nice exposure shot, though the rope startles me a bit. It looks too much like a snake out of the corner of my eye =0
that's a sweet view. long way down.
seriously, how is it anyone notices a ring? I mean, after some difficult searching I see it, but come on, it's not what stands out!
There's no gear
loved that route
I really like the fading landscape in the background. The rock looks great, too.
either way, nice shot. the fading blue is nice.
'bout time you got a pic
BTW - I didn't take the pic. Ratherbe did, so I can't take any credit.
Heh - well, maybe the world really looks that way! =p
love the perspective
gotta get back on the FP!
that's a pretty sweet perspective
nice pic gabe, particularly after such a nice route, too
wow! what a great view!
cool pic. where is this?
Gotta admit, even though I have NO desire to do snow or ice climbing, this is a pretty cool pic.
way to protect your second
hmmm...looks like two things at the same time. wow, quite an interesting find.
that looks like spectacular country
Bear Brook might be one of the best hikes on the island. It ranks right up there with the Precipice and the Gorge Trail.
I will at some point. This is a lot more south than where I'll start out. It's about a 20-hour bus ride from Santiago.
awesome climb, nice shot.
Haha! Yeah, what's not in the picture is the leader of the party directly beneath me who had to get a stray buckle from my pack out of the crack below me. It got caught TWICE! =p
This is actually at the top of the first chimney (not including the easy chimney on P2/P3, depending on how you linked the first two pitches). very awkward transitioning from the crack to the chimney at this point.
yeah - I found that move to be kind of hard. I've done some chimneys, but ones like that are still new to me.
It was definitely preparing me for the rest of the trip. We encoutered lots of this stuff during my whole trip out west, and this was the first one of the trip.
grovel, grovel, grovel
that's a pretty cool shot
You'd call that a chimney? I guess it could be on the blurry line. I didn't do much chimneying it. I did a lot of chicken wings and getting myself stuck. awkward? um, yeah.
very nice shot
I don't know, it's kind of flaring at that point, and where I "chimneyed" it was very tight, as in, I would have preferred it wasn't so tight.
love the clothesline
DAMMIT! I'll call it what I want to!!! >:(
yup, that's how I do push-ups
I still think the section just before the chimney(ish) section if offwidth. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Yeah, that spot was definitely a nice rest afte the thin move into it, which I think looked harder than they really were. The thin moves at the top??? Holy cow!
yeah that looks kinda sorta hard(ish). nice shot.
which one is you and how much time did you spend in jail?
love the finish on P2
hadn't thought of that. i only have a PAS, do you think that would have made a difference? He's about 15 feet away.
Thanks, that was a nice morning to walk down the path. Fortunately, mornings like that are actually pretty common.
Is that a natural arch up on the right?
hehe - oh the poor sod!
ah, touche. thanks for the correction. still, it was a pretty spot.
I like how you've displayed the jump here. Nice job.
It was a very nice route...and there's a nice warmup next to it, too, called Themetime.
Finally on the FP and not behind the lens!
You should have seen the flake that is just out of view. Holy Cow!
We were unsure of the descent options for some of the routes we wanted to do. They were useful for one route we did (saved an extra rap), but this route had an easy walk-off.
thanks gail. this part was only 5.7. not a particularly difficult climb, but scary at points.
Climbing with doubles, so there is no trail rope. Both pieces are tied in and clipped. On this particular section of the route, it makes sense to clip every other piece with every other rope, if that makes sense.
one of the better shots I've seen on here in a while
really nice pic
I'm drunk, and that's still a cool fucking climb
nice shot. I really like how the overhangs look in this
Yeah, wow, what a great route this was. Pretty easy to figure out the route, too, and the approach is not as long as the very old guidebook suggests.
We did it in five but I think it can be done in four with a 70m rope. The only reason we did it in five was because we kind of linked the wrong pitches together (so one pitch was only about 35 feet or so).
Definitely, definitely, definitely a great route.
The focus is throwing me off, but the colors and perspective are nice.
Nice pic, and nice to see a a good shot on a moderate route, too
i so want to say something about fingers and cracks and climbing terms like that, but I figure that'd be off topic
nice shot. can't wait to get there myself
If that's the main wall then I'm thinking you need to find a new apartment dude.
that's a great shot
Whitey got caught though!
wow, what an excellent shot! Great capture!
Great shot, thanks for sharing
that's a nice pic
I've clipped worse.
It's funny because I had a photo on here once (not my old icon photo, a different one) where the horizon angle was accurate and everyone gave me shit for having a crappy photo of CCK. The grass isn't green on either side.
wow. typo gone wrong in a really bad way
While I haven't been on it, apparently a key hold broke a few years ago leaving some well-desired gear unavailable. Not sure if it made the route harder or not, but the folks who told me that said it made things a bit more interesting.
Heh - good, all-around, generic guess, but no.
haha! that's awesome.
that looks sweet! nice pic. thanks for sharing.
gorgeous shot. good use of the reds and sepias. well done
amazing photo, especially considering the circumstances
nice shot edge
That's bleepin' cool
That's about at half-height, too.
he's being lowered. what you think you see are extra lines of rope are a combination of shadows and grass. look closely.
great shot Ed. Well done!
Great shot Manny. Love how it curves.
fantastic shot. well done!
ok, now it's a joke.
nice profile pic - horrible front page climbing pic. excellent troll.
