The picture is great, but it is sad to see so much chalk on such pretty rock.

5 out of 5 stars Great picture Pete. Really gives a great sense of space and the immensity of the wall.

5 out of 5 stars That is damn cool-good rigging guys.

4 out of 5 stars the carriage road is such a nice landing you don't need a pad. nice shot, and a fun problem.

4 out of 5 stars i normally am not a big fan of sport climbing pictures, but this is incredible. great job spike!

5 out of 5 stars Yes, it is from a fairly inexpensive Fuji digital camera. The route is so photogenic the picture takes itself.

5 out of 5 stars Cool. The helmet and facial expression really show what aid is all about...

5 out of 5 stars This route is much better than Kor-Ingalls, and is well worth doing even if you've already climbed castleton before. I've done the approach three times now, and it gets harder to make myself do it every time.

5 out of 5 stars Now that is funny - take that California socialists! This guy would get lynched in Boulder.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars The furry thing on the rock is a Marmot. For those who don't know, Marmots and the small chipmunk-like Pikas live in the mountains above treeline. As far as I can tell, they mostly eat climber's lunches and clothing(I've had a glove, a hat, a camera bag, and lots of sandwiches stolen while hiking and from packs sitting at the base of alpine routes), though I imagine they have to eat plants on weekdays. They are fearless - that guy hung out right on the summit boulder while 4 of us were up there.

5 out of 5 stars Great picture. You should get another one with the climber wearing a bolt hanger necklace. Wonderful picture nonetheless.

5 out of 5 stars Too cool. I bet a bunch of Mall Runners and Exploders were parked way before that hole. Wouldn't want to get the SUV dirty.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Relax Adam. Besides, some of us have disliked bolted cracks much longer than we've known Pete - and longer than you've been climbing incidentally. People can hold an opinion Pete holds without blindly following him.

Once again, nice picture.

5 out of 5 stars Nice shot. Classic climb - one of the most fun tower routes I've ever done. Good job on the climb and the picture.

4 out of 5 stars Yes, those are pretzels, but the beer is Bridgeport IPA and not Guiness. The Guiness is my dessert beer and is sitting in the cooler.

5 out of 5 stars What are you talking about apollodorous? I've stood in that very same position, and it sure doesn't look fake to me.

5 out of 5 stars as verification, uncle_big_green AKA dirtbag AKA nutter is indeed the climber in the picture.

5 out of 5 stars Totally cool - I never got any angle on this pitch but a butt shot. Good job.

5 out of 5 stars This thing is much more solid than it looks - standing on the tippy top isn't too bad.

Thanks to whoever resurrected this picture out of page 30 obscurity - this is one of my favorites. Enough people have asked that i'll write an article about this, so look for it in a week or two.

5 out of 5 stars Nice. I was there a few days after this, and can attest to the ash all over the place(plastic bags over the statues, etc). The volcanos are wild in Ecuador - also got to see Tungurahua blowing on my way down to Chimborazo.

4 out of 5 stars this is actually pretty good - good job jeremy. guess i have to quit saying you've never done anything worthwhile on the site.

this is really fantastic roughster. did you use a pole to push off the cliff, or how did you get the angle?

5 out of 5 stars Fantastic. Do you have a bigger version of this? I love this, and would like to use it as wallpaper on my laptop.

5 out of 5 stars Great shot. The blurred background makes this look even more airy than it probably is. 10.

4 out of 5 stars Awesome shot. The commitment level is part of what makes the Swimming Hole so damn cool, and there are plenty of other places within an hour or two if you can't handle it(like me for instance). Don't even think about drilling.

Beautiful shot.

5 out of 5 stars that doesn't look like 5.11!

5 out of 5 stars I fell onto a green/blue offset Alien, and it worked well. I screamed on the way down though - thats for sure.

That is the same Dan, though he moved to Provo. Do you also know my belayer for this, Brian Shelton?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Just to clarify, I bailed after pitch one because of time constraints and some weather moving in. I'll be going back in March to finish the route. This is the best pitch I have ever done, and I took a 15 foot fall shortly after this picture was taken.

this is a wierd formation. addiroids and i saw some guys working on it and wondered what on earth it was, and happily we ran into todd gordon that night to hear the story.

3 out of 5 stars I got HAPE and had to bail unfortunately. Personally, I hated Aconcagua and won't go back - too many people and they desperately need to introduce a system for dealing with human waste. Camp 1 on the Polish was disgusting and I shudder to think of what the Normal Route is like. In the off chance I climb in the area again I will go to Mercedario or Tupungato instead.

4 out of 5 stars photo is a 5, but location gets it an 8. cool stuff.

thats probably the second or third pitch, i imagine the whole route is about 6-7 pitches. taken from pitch 5 on maiden voyage just across the cruise gully.

5 out of 5 stars brilliant picture. i remember seeing it poking above the clouds while climbing cotopaxi, but it was always too stormed in to see it up close.

View this Photo
there is a larger tower casting a shadow there - the kingfisher. the pic is totally legit. that pitch is 5.9, but really wild. such a great route.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars whoa, we never had to cross anything like that back in 1999 when i climbed it.

View this Photo
nice shot, but being that runout without a helmet and that sort of fall line makes you an excellent candidate for natural selection. you may as well just solo the thing.

Is the Poo Breasted WallBlur related to the dread mud falcon? Good job on the cleanup.

View this Photo
funniest picture on the site.

View this Photo
i'm sorry, but i just don't really see the point to this, at least for aid climbing. i can't imagine aiders and daisys coming unclipped from the biner - its enough of a struggle to get everything clipped in and then out, and crossloading really isn't a concern with the bodyweight work you do with this. if the gate was superlight and worked automatically it might be nice to help keep the biners from getting crossloaded in quickdraws(especially biners on long slings when extending gear while trad climbing). i wouldn't use it aid climbing because i want more simplicity and clutter in my system, and this adds more weight, bulk, and stuff to remember while only providing a marginally useful enhancement.

looks like 5.6 hands to me

i guess for a good reference for the size of this thing, the little point on the left side of the summit ridge is about 30' tall. big tower.

4 out of 5 stars you think anyone is going to want to get on this reno? haha.

it is seldom climbed because the rock is way soft, kinda chossy, and not really near much of anything else. a definite adventure towers for desert rats.

cool shot josh.

anytime you preface a question with "i was taught", it usually means you don't know enough to make a determination on your own. criticize after picking up some experience.

a good but not great picture of this climb. kalcario and therealdeal are assholes - i'm glad you guys have moved beyond this sort of climbing, but i don't see why you feel the need to insult some guy who just submitted a decent picture - especially if you have to insult the sort of climbing and not the picture itself. if these pictures offend you so much, don't look at them - unless of course you would appreciate climbers who like splitter cracks commenting about how bad your pictures are because they don't like bolts or routes that came about because of excessive cleaning.

anyway, nice job on the picture digzdachikzdatdrinkzbeerz - its about as good as a butt shot from the ground is going to get.

penitentes are formed by intense sun on the glacier. they melt in the day and freeze at night, and end up looking like stalagmites. in argentina on aconcagua the pentitentes were higher than my head - absolutely exhausting to walk through.

4 out of 5 stars jesus that climb looks good. nice shot.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars yes overlord, the nylon slings are natural parts of the formation.

do otto's before this route? good god why? otto's is fun, but it really isn't a classic. this route is as good as wierd 5.9 A0 gets. but really, if you are going to only do one tower you should do a heinous choss heap so you get to know the spirit of the desert. cenotaph spire would be a good candidate.

i'm guessing it falls over at april 1, 2099 at 4:20 AM
