Question: How the hell do the people in those offices get any work done? If I could see rock from my office, I'd be fired in no time.

Is that City Lights? I think I remember a tree that you could stem on... In fact I think that's the only way to make the first 15 feet 5.7

That's definitely one of my top 5 favorite climbs of all time. The view and the exposure are truly unbelievable! How'd you like that first step!?

Yeah, the dude cut his feet a tad early. You're supposed to heel hook out the whole way to the end. Great pic though! What's the tag line for?

F- off Thomas! I love it! Makes me wanna go climb it. Is there any better judge of quality?

Yeah, some advice: Don't critique if you've never been there. If there's something wrong w/ the horizon you should address your complaints to God cuz that's the way She made it.

4 out of 5 stars Well thanks y'all!

Best part is that the dude on the left actually backs up a little as the guy is landing. Who knew they had Southern Spotters in NZ?

This is a picture of trad climbing. "Backclipping" does not exist in trad climbing. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wearing their harness too tight.

does the corner/crack take gear?

View this Photo
I placed some gear a little further out when I did it... Good thing two cuz I actually fell off it twice before pulling it off.

5 out of 5 stars Nikegirl, it's possible with practice. My last serious gf could do it... Why did I break up with her???

What are the odds that first piece will hold in the event of a fall? I'm picturing a big 'ol zipper effect.

"Aphelion is a pure sport route" What does that mean? I'm NOT trying to start the tired bullshit trad vs sport thing. I just don't know what you mean by that.

Nice looking route though.

Umm... How high off the ground is he?

Quick! Somebody get that boy a burger STAT!!!

When I did that there was a hiker on the "photo ledge" and he shouted over "How the hell did you guys get over there?!"

That's in Arizona!?!

Looks like an old boulder to me. Way older than me anyway.

5 out of 5 stars Very Nice! I agree that the bottom could be cropped.

I can hear the rock saying "I can't feel a thing."

4 out of 5 stars I wanna go back!!!

5 out of 5 stars This is why I'm moving to CO... And getting a job that lets me climb during the week.

I don't know if that's the operating position for the descender but it looks to me like the free end of the rope has a good chance of unscrewing the locker.

Commercial? WTF are you talking about?

4 out of 5 stars This is the first pic I've seen of Denali that actually makes me want to climb it.

4 out of 5 stars How come this is so small if it's super size? I feel like we'd be able to see a lot more detail in a larger format.

5 out of 5 stars Truly awesome!!

5 out of 5 stars 10! This just got added to my ticklist. Thanks for the inspiration!

Glyrocks is right. It's really not a technically great photo. Anyone who had been there with a camera could have taken the same shot. I just looked up, saw something cool, pointed, and clicked. No biggie. That said, I submitted it because it does look really cool and moments like these are why I climb.

That's a scary place to be in a rain storm!

5 out of 5 stars I just about lost my lunch when I saw this. 10!

5 out of 5 stars Well, I'm a total left brainer, but I think this pic is awesome! 10! Those of you whining are really taking yourselves (and climbing, and photography) too seriously.

5 out of 5 stars One of the coolest things I've ever done. Sitting on the Salathe ledge gave me the exact same sensation as tripping on 'shrooms only I was completely sober. Wish I had a pic like this from when I did it. 10.
