Ok, how come Panther Beach is never this cool when I go--don't even tell me it's the tide!
delicious composition--I'm envious. ;-)
Great light--hard to get the perspective right from this side, though--looks shorter than it's forty flippin', soloing feet. *shiver*
Ohh! I miss Gecko Crack!!! Sadness, I wish I were in Pohara, Golden Bay...
Ivan, did you catch that? People are using your arse as wallpaper! It's not like the sun shines out it or anything.
Right on nzcragrat, that ain't R for Ranger, nor is it mixed pro anymore (unless there's another pock on the arete we all missed ;-] .) Props to Pascal anyway--that's quite a bold lead, despite the easier start (through the wasp nest...) *Brr*, potential groundfalls give me the shivers!
Yeah guys, the New Zealand bush really is full of giant fern trees. And cabbage trees, for that matter, which are even weirder (think Joshua trees meet a sleep-deprived Dr. Seuss.) And let's not forget, Responsible Lunges is an ultra-classic climb, perhaps the best at its grade in Aotearoa.
That's Harry Denanto! Glad to see somebody finally dragged him out to T. Head! Lans and I've been trying for ages. Keep track of the area, the date of the ascent, the ascentionist, the name, and the grade--hell, just post it on here! Peace
Aww, I miss the Bay. I think I'll celebrate Waitangi day this year by spending a four day weekend there! Recently, the trust has been putting in developments to encourage climbers to come back to the Bay including a climbers' cabin up top. Still $10 a night.
The crazy Israelis! I love those guys! They saved me from freezing to death at the Castle Hill campground. Just never go ice climbing with them...
Ohh, too spectacular. It's even more beautiful than Hampi at sunrise
Um, I think this should go up in the Ruapehu/Whakapapa section. This'd be one CHILLY day at the Bay!
Huh? This sure as hell ain't at the Bay
It's a chaotic slurry of massive jugs, gradually getting smaller and less frequent out to the lip, making it a good idea to try to memorise a sequence that you can rocket through before you get pumped. V1 halfway out to the lip, then V3 to the lip. The crux of the problem is topping out up to the ledge over the lip and goes at V7. The first ascent was made on acid, while listening to a walkman.
Gotta love the backbreaker of a boulder in the bushes below
Anybody know what the V9 eliminating the Bubble pocket is called--I've forgotten, and now I live in NZ and can't ask anybody. ;-)
OMG, it reminds me of the local Bronx Cave at Turakirae Head! <www.41174.org.nz> This summer back in Depauw is going to kill me if I can't find a place to go bouldering--I'll probably get myself killed by rockfall guerilla bouldering in the abandoned quarry caves in Marengo....
Amazing sense of vertigo
Choice! The last thing I expected to see on the front page of RC.com was a shot of the home crag. Gotta love Takaka and the Bo Peep Slab. Nice shot, too!
Nice! About time, buddy!
He's gay AND single!
There you are, RaRa. ;-)
Alex is crushing (and gay. and single!) ;-)
Sick! (and sic)
Sick photo, Chavez!
