my house has this same view and I gave it a 7, because the sunset IS amazing.
Littering in the valley?!? Come on man have you not left grade school?
make sure you try it with a tight static line, because going uphill through bushes doesnt sound like fun
nice photoshop job
oh thank you sir
what can i say, amazing photo, amazing climb
Thats a fun climb, Nice contrast too
nice pic, but jaws is 5.11
actually I think the ridge still looks the same as it does here. Fun climb though
For those of you that are familiar with Indian Rock, you might wonder where the photographer was standing. It was actually taken from a camera lofted from a kite that was flying above me. You can see more pictures at http://arch.ced.berkeley.edu/kap/
maybe ill spray some wd40 on the qds next time!!
Still breaking these puppies in, but im glad i didnt bring the katanas, you can smear on just about anything on El Cajon- cb
Thank you. When you are ridiculously good looking you have to look good even when your climbing rocks.
Your right Ill use some slings next time, you could also use some on the second pitch for some of the clips in the middle (maybe around the 7th bolt).
whats with all these 2 people are leaving? Unless this is a 2 in that case oh well...
Leave a comment and tell me why the 2
Did you free solo that climb? Doesnt look like you have any trad gear. I guess it is around 5.6.
Well thank you for the comments, yes the orientation is confusing, but when looking straight up there is no correct orientation. I tried all of them (even with the sky down) and found this most pleasing. I am a fan of the rule of thirds when vertically employed.
What jerk would leave me a 2... It hurts my feelings =( Leave me some feed back, thanks
It would look better if you rotated it around 6 deg clockwise and cropped it down. Maybe a little saturation would help too. Awsome pic though, looks like a great problem.
great lighting... pictures turn out the best at the end of the day, and ive heard its the same in the early morning, but i wouldnt know...
Sweet lead... despite the popular opinion I actually enjoy this climb and hit it up as often as possible. I think its one of the better cracks at MG, but I dont have the balls to lead it (maybe next time). Great pic though, too bad its blury, but the roof looks pretty cool. Is it taken with a telephoto?
I hope thats not tobacco.... =)
I hope you guys were 2 feet off the ground...
Please leave some feedback...
Part of the reason it looks surreal is beacuse of the slow shutter speed, making the water flow soft. Nice pic
My feet were about 6 inches above the water, and at one point my butt was actually submerged (I don't think the bouyancy force counts as aid). Some of the other routes we found got up to 10 feet and had major backflop potential.
Thanks for the comments, I will pass them on to the photographer
Wouldnt that be a 20 footer math man ;)
Awsome shot, I have been thinking about taking the exact same one sometime. -cb
Haha sell it to petzl
Thanks, check out some more photography by Cris at http://arch.ced.berkeley.edu/kap/
I uploaded it again and it got worse
I feel that Jaws is harder. I have read its 11a if you jam, 10d if you lie it back...
Ilona sure does make it look easy. I wish I could get full hands like that. I wonder if this would be a 5.9 for her... great pic though and a fun solo!
Is that a spear gun or a clip stick?
Bush... man I though climbers were smart
why is the couch on fire?
Great shot, Im sold... can i borrow some #2s
Isnt every climb easier when you have it wired? Who cares anyway...
Dont know the name, but its a 10.b
Looks like bvb to me too
Thats a sweet pic of a sweet route
Haha, your an engineer too...
Awsome shot, the black and white gives the rock a mysterious look. Keep it up...
hes got some serious balls
which video is it?
If she were leading, that 3 would be in the roof and it would be money from there...
called pinhead me thinks
looks like hed deck before it caught so i guess it doesnt matter. The belayer prolly twisted it out when he took.
looks like it get hard to protect
jeans, a red shirt and no rope?? sounds like mike reardon, rip
Anything and everything is on. There might be some edges down lower, but I jam my toes for the duration... ~ Charlie
Ahh I remember this one...thats 10ft of crack that will teach you a lesson or two. Try a high step pinky down toe jam when your feet are right before the turn :)
Thats a ballsy solo for sure with a crappy landing. Theres bolts at the top for a reason...
Hope she didn't need those #3's
Hey Adam, looks like you have discovered the sweet combination of PAP and Climbing...
You should post some of your photos here...
How do you fire the shutter? IR?
Great vantage, any other shots of the route?
Thanks for the comments!
As for how I got the pole up there... I was standing downhill of the belayer holding an 11m (36ft) pole with my camera at the other end.
Thanks for all the comments and perfect 5 stars!
AB - The crux of the problem is down low with an uneven rocky landing, thus the oddly placed crash pad. Most people would prefer more pads and some spotters for the top out.
j_ung - The 'oblivious tourons' certainly add to the shot, but to my dislike a bit camouflaged by the tree.
philbox - Thanks, trippy is a good word.
bighigaz - Gravity is pulling in the wrong direction... this image is stitched from three overlapping landscape shots, covering nearly 90 degrees. This creates a bizarre perspective, bending the direction of gravity from top to bottom.
Hopefully my LX3 rig will be done when the sun swings back around next year!
Great light, great rock, great shot!
Great shot, looks like fun!
Awesome shot! Great action, light and detail. Reminds me of Reardon.
What camera? - CB
