Thanks for the photo dave...micah...do you know who put this up?

as much as it obscures the view, it does add a neat, almost elevatory element to the photo...but yeah, I agree micah

I love it when people think they know what they are talking about...when they really don't have a clue. Thanks for the backup fellow AK boys...wasn't near the compooter to defend myself!

I second the bowline comment...much easier

Nah, that's not slab...just a ridiculously strange camera angle--Oh, wait, that draw is laying against the rock. Oh well...

Funny I didn't see you on Saturday...I didn't hit the trail until about 4pm, so maybe you were out of sight by then.

yes mothersheep, it is absolutely FANTASTIC limestone. The place is worth a trip on its own, not to mention the beauty of the surrounding area.

View this Photo
yes, this isn't a steep climb

4 out of 5 stars I have so many pics of this thing..along with everyone else. Nice shot!

4 out of 5 stars I believe that's a yucca plant...not a cactus...or is it in the cactus family...? Nice photo...I second the request for an increase in contrast..

Hey Winston, go get that second bolt...

Did you find the pro to be a little dicey? I ended up just running out the last 10 feet or so.

View this Photo
we used it after I got the fire started with the stuff I brought...it was rip roarin' all night long :D

4 out of 5 stars Man kalcario...it's not like we're a bunch of photo snobs around here...oh, wait, yes we are! The photo is nice, even if it lacks "originality". How about all your landscape photos...those are pretty darn original! Never seen one of those before.

Holy mono pocket batman!

what's with all of the magnesium carbonate deposits?...strange....

View this Photo
Nope, 10 feet isn't really a runout, but how else would you describe it? How about " I just kept climbing without placing any more protection over the remaining 10 feet or so of the route"....is that better? What qualifies as "running out" in your book Mr. Hardman?

View this Photo
Nice work...(shaking head because I may never see the day)

One of the best I've seen from your collection Bob...beautiful!

View this Photo
looks like he's sportin some loco's too

View this Photo
johnson, click on the link to the "area" and scroll through till you find the climb "Future Shock". This is the reason we link pictures to the routes database. Your other question...he is climbing with twin ropes...

We're not crazy, just committed...;)

4 out of 5 stars I also lack the testicular fortitude to pull this off...

4 out of 5 stars I love the fact that you can not only see the climber and the belayer, but also his last placement. It really puts you in the moment! Great photo!

I may not be sliding down the slope, but a partner falling in a hole would initiate some sliding...don't you think?
