Spectacular-my new favorite photo on the site.
really nice. i love the colors in the clouds.
The picture is great, but it is sad to see so much chalk on such pretty rock.
Great picture Pete. Really gives a great sense of space and the immensity of the wall.
That is damn cool-good rigging guys.
the carriage road is such a nice landing you don't need a pad. nice shot, and a fun problem.
i wish the picture was bigger-cool climb though.
nice picture, but that ain't a big wall.
very cool shot
i normally am not a big fan of sport climbing pictures, but this is incredible. great job spike!
Yes, it is from a fairly inexpensive Fuji digital camera. The route is so photogenic the picture takes itself.
Gorgeous shot. Great job.
We have a winner for dumbest picture on the site.
Cool. The helmet and facial expression really show what aid is all about...
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.
The new most pointless picture on the site.
Cool picture - looks hard.
Great job - unique and makes the route look intimidating. Beautiful.
Beautiful picture! Really captures the exposure well.
Now that is funny - take that California socialists! This guy would get lynched in Boulder.
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.
Great picture. You should get another one with the climber wearing a bolt hanger necklace. Wonderful picture nonetheless.
Beautiful! Keep up the good work.
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.
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.
Nice shot. Classic climb - one of the most fun tower routes I've ever done. Good job on the climb and the picture.
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.
What are you talking about apollodorous? I've stood in that very same position, and it sure doesn't look fake to me.
as verification, uncle_big_green AKA dirtbag AKA nutter is indeed the climber in the picture.
Totally cool - I never got any angle on this pitch but a butt shot. Good job.
This thing is much more solid than it looks - standing on the tippy top isn't too bad.
Really cool formation! Great picture.
WOW! Freakin incredible shot.
Really great picture. I've only been on Izta during a blizzard so its nice to see what I missed ;)
Damn, this is really superb. Great shot.
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.
That is a great shot, and the proudest rack I have ever seen.
Fantastic shot Chad. Neat climb, isn't it?
Unbelievable. This is really amazing Karl.
Interesting photo. Funniest thing I've read in awhile apollodorus.
This is Arches National Park - not Canyonlands. The towers on the right are Park Avenue, the cool skinny tower in the back is Argon Tower.
Really cool. Beautifully taken too.
Really good picture. Looks pretty burly.
cool position and facial expression - but washed out and fuzzy. can you get a better camera?
I hiked in - beautiful walk and it took less than an hour.
God this thing is hard. Good job.
This is really wonderful and unique. Great job.
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.
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?
is that better?
That looks pumpy as hell. Nice picture.
Fantastic. Do you have a bigger version of this? I love this, and would like to use it as wallpaper on my laptop.
Great shot. The blurred background makes this look even more airy than it probably is. 10.
Cool looking climb, but too bad the sky is washed out and your arm is over your face.
Great shot. Nice tick no matter how tall you are.
stunning. one of the best on the site.
ever heard of walkoffs sportos? bonus points for having the old school camalot style.
Nice shot of this amazing piece of rock. Climbed it two weeks ago - you'll love it Paul.
stunning. doesn't look like a colorado picture at all!
this picture is outstanding.
2x4s are a necessary addition to any trad rack. well done.
i love this picture. really well done.
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.
that doesn't look like 5.11!
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?
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.
well done. you are an apt pupil.
what a gorgeous feature.
that looks hideous
Double Cross(fun 5.5 hand crack - what's the fuss?) will be next trip. She also sent Double Dip, Toejam, and Mr Misty Kiss on the same weekend. Really good first weekend of trad.
you need to get a better camera adam. cool looking climbs and good positions, but fuzzy and washed out colors.
blasphemy coldclimb - the grill always starts. i'm just thinking up an excuse not to climb the titan.
awesome. i just about spilled my beer laughing at this one.
agree with yeti. the other picture is ok, this one is wonderful.
not nearly as good as the other picture of the same thing. not bad though.
cool - looks more interesting than i thought possible in oklahoma
Sweet. This is what Yosemite is all about.
thanks for the geology info. you should do an article on this using your pictures. i love this stuff.
Not as good as the other shot, but still pretty cool. The pixelation of the climber is unfortunate.
this is maybe the best climbing picture i have ever seen. really fantastic job.
mine don't walk and are wonderful after i modified what i consider the dangerous trigger wires supplied with them. great engineering.
great colors. as always superb.
really well done.
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.
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.
the picture is good, but the comment is worth a 10. the diamond rules.
great picture - one of the best sporto pictures i have ever seen. all the moron drooler guys commenting should be embarrassed - didn't you grow past this behavior in junior high school?
pretty cool shot.
OK picture, nothing too special.
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.
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.
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.
whoa, we never had to cross anything like that back in 1999 when i climbed it.
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.
funniest picture on the site.
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.
really outstanding. i love the clouds.
this picture is magnificent. great job.
yes, access has never been an issue for the monument.
cool tower. it would be better at a higher res so there weren't so many pixel artifacts around everything.
beautiful shot. the swell is amazing.
you think anyone is going to want to get on this reno? haha.
awesome shot. this looks brilliant.
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.
nice belly folds
holy $#!& that is lame. lose the gym sticker on the helmet, and did you learn that pose from watching a spelling bee championship?
the offwidth to the right is calling me.
ooh, a butt shot
wow, that is really cool
looks pretty dumb to me
impressive not getting anyone else in the picture while climbing on lincoln
good quality, but the action isn't too compelling.
that looks like when i did it. nice job.
a big dude and a hex. wierd rack man.
birds eye butte on the left, luminous being or don juan spire on the right? moab is cool.
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.
that is awesome.
This is an awesome shot.
awesome picture jeff.
yeah, i agree with jhump.
stunning. please submit it in higher res.
totally bomber compared to some of the schwag anchors out there. isn't being a desert rat fun?
this is awesome. "if you see any animals that must be killed and eaten" - classic.
boy that look different from a few weeks ago. what time of year?
that is fantastic. this is the sort of thing that i want to do most now. thanks for the inspiration shot.
this is spectacular. if you don't like scenery shots of mountaineering, don't look at them.
that sure doesn't look like 5.12
shadows, and a bit of grit since this is the base layer of the old glacial ice. mexico city is a long way from orizaba, and it is way above the nasty pollution layer in any case.
that is a really pretty shot - good contrasts
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.
this is a really spectacular shot. great job.
that wasn't a nice thing to call ammon b_fost. better apologize.
nice pic, and nice job ammon.
wow, terrific shot.
Nice picture Gabe. Show me how to get there and we'll put up some routes.
glad to see your pictures here again joe. great shot.
really great shot again joe. the light is unreal.
The start of that route sure feels like 5.10 to me.
nice photo. that is one of the hardest 5.7s i've ever done.
cool photo. curt taught me to climb when we were in high school way back in the day. great guy, and a great climber.
yeah, stevens class of 95. i think one of the yearbooks around then has a picture of my brother climbing something or other.
i can't believe how calm you look. good job man, and good luck with the physical therapy.
Stood on the roof of my truck. Looks like there are a few holes below the first remaining bolt - somebody harvested some hangers i guess.
this is the best 5.7 sport route in the universe. this is a really cool angle of it - the thing looks really wild when you can't see the formation to the right of it(axe edge?)
The perspective on this picture is one of the most interesting i've seen from Zion. Absolutely fantastic job.
The road may not look pretty, but it is sure handy for humping loads to the bases of the routes.
This photo is superb. Really captures the human element of aid climbing well. Great job.
Stunning. Really impressive job pulling this together.
classic version of a classic photo. coolest summit pitch in the desert? i think so...
jesus that climb looks good. nice shot.
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
midsummers night dream is the big dihedral just left of the climber.
so johnny, do you like gladiator movies?
nice shot. the salt lake crew misses you!
nice! table mountain is as good as climbing gets - think a bigger version of the gunks with sea views.
nice shot gabe. looks wrong to see you in aiders and not on red sandstone though ;)
Wonderful photo. Beats a day at the post office, eh Dylan?
whenever i am looking for a sniper, i always make sure my buddies are taking photos.
