Beautiful! Reminds me of those chinese paintings of the sharply vertical mountain ranges.
Nice! It's so rare to see a climb that actually requires a fig-4. You get bonus points for the fig-4 in action!
Wow!!! Looks unreal!
Nice photo. What's with the loose quickdraw at your left foot? Too pumped to clean it?
Needs a haircut!
Are those hemp soled shoes, or is that texture just a product of the photo?
Fantastic! One question, though. Does he always solo with a photographer in tow?
Beautiful photo. Captures the grace and style of the best women climbers superbly.
Very pretty! The lighting is fantastic - notice how the only thing the sun is on is the climber and his rock.
beautiful. It's a good thing it's washed out, otherwise it'd be an 11.
Somehow, I've never managed to get there, but the photo makes it look like a nice place to climb!
I certainly wouldn't lead it w/out any pro on the traverse, but it doesn't detract from the pic. Best photo I've ever seen of the Dangler - nice job!
Beautiful pic - thanks!
The blue glaciers, the black spires, the ridge of mountains in the background, and the wide open feel all around the climber. Spectacular! Anything that makes me want to be there this much must be at least a 9! There's no 9.5, so I'll round up. :)
That's not the horizon, it's the other side of the valley. Looks like the trees are growing straight up to me.
Lookin' good!!! The photo might work a little better (and we could see you more clearly) if you cropped down about 25% on the left side and the top.
Nice! Happy to see you've found some enjoyable climbing in our humble land, ms. scallywag!
Very attractive photo. Nice.
Cute photo! And I like the caption it has.
The shot being off-kilter (vis-a-vis the horizon, trees, belay ledge) is kind of distracting.
Nice shot. I like how the bronze skin tones and orange outfit match the hue of the rock. All this makes the climber's red face stand out and illustrate the difficulty of the route/move.
Nice shot "LLB." The non-horizontal horizon is a little distracting, though. Didn't realize you were posting over here. Welcome! Beta-boy - I like that - suits you to a tee!
"It was the 80s..." is your excuse for the tights, or the pre-hung draw? ;)
Oh, and I think the photo is excellent!
I disagree w/ dougboy. I there's *enough* texture captured in the rock (despite it being underexposed) and *enough* color and shape to the climber (despite him being overexposed) that both look natural and interesting. Maybe your monitor needs adjusting?
Wish I was there! Looks like a great climb!
Nice composition, good pic! Is it just me, or is the focus a little soft? Or maybe it's a low-pixel camera?
Two shots stitched together. That's so smart - it means your light-meter can be properly adjusted for each half of the frame! And of course, that explains why the reflection of the sky in the lower left is *brighter* than the real sky. In my book, this is an "11".
I just scroll it so the bottom 10% of the pic is offscreen, and it's great! A 9!
It's called The Dangler. It's a variation on the top of Three Pines. Goes at somewhere between 5.8 and 5.10. Nice pic, dbyte, but what's with the weird angle of the shot? You pull so hard the earth tipped over or something?
Nice rack, Julia! (I've always wanted to say that). :)
What kinda rope is that?
Yup, nice pic.
Great expression - looks like she's about to laugh herself right off the rock!
Heart-catch-in-the-throat beautiful. Breathtaking, literally.
Sweet pic!!! I've got to get onto Cannon next summer. (Hope it's a dry spring).
Nice! If you peel off the overhangs at the top do you fall into deep enough water?
Beautiful! It's hard to get a sense of scale... how tall are the cliffs?
another nice one.
Nice pic, GREAT climb.
Yup, just climbed it again this weekend and it looks like this pic was taken at the top of P3.
Nice photo, but I must be missing something. Or to be precise, you're missing something. Where's your rope?
How tall is it?
Hmm... looks like a classic TR route to me. Why would you make this a clip-up?
Wild route, cool photo!
Wierd light. Makes it look like an under-water sea cliff.
Pretty photo, but looks a little out of focus and kind of washed out: 7
I think this should be on the front page.
Cute. Too bad the quality of the photo is so poor.
Pretty pic, I gave it a 7, but would probably rate it higher if I could see more detail. Care to resubmit it higher than 19K?
Walk off right? I thought the walk off was to the left. At least that's how I got down.
The horizon is tilted. Can you fix and resubmit please?
Nice pic, but could you straighten it out and resubmit?
My only problem w/ this pic is that if the climber pops off doing the heel-hook/reach for the top edge of the book, it's a nasty "ground"-fall for sure!
Hey Larry, it's customary to use a sling, not a string of biners. ;)
I bet you wear your sunglasses at night, don't you.
Yikes, don't grab the cactus!
I'm sorry her right foot is chopped off by the pic. But nice colors, interesting rock, and good job capturing her expression. 8
Nice pic. It does look like you could have gotten a couple pieces under those two overlaps, though. No?
7 - Nice. Would definitely rate it higher if you could upload a higher res. version.
"too bad you can't see the cam very well" I can see it's a u-stem, probably a metolius tcu. I just couldn't see the obvious, that the gear hanging off it is just a quickdraw - oops!
Too bad the focus is on the rock in the foreground rather than the climber. I prefer the female sex, but aside from that I agree with the sentiment 100%!
Wow, what's up with the crazy cloud formation in the background?
Yeah! Hump that rock! Ride it hard! ;)
looks like a pretty spring setting, too. Where were you climbing?
Would be better if we could see your face. But nice pics, please post more!
7++. Nice shot, just a little low-res. And yes, Wonder Wall is fun face climbing!
Nice photo! Too bad the contrast is so low (it all looks kind of grey).
This is a new higher resolution version of the pic. Sorry you need to resubmit comments and ratings. But it looks much better now!
Happy birthday, Jen!
What a feeling, traversing out on that dime edge over a sudden yawning space below you!
You're welcome. Great pic, great climb! I love how you can faintly make out the ropework of your partner at the top.
Congrats! Looks like a perfect place for a first lead!
My goodness sapphire, such abandon! I underestimated you! ;)
The view from up on Precipice is just fabulous. I love the misty ocean in this pic.
Very sweet! Where is this?
one900 - it's 5.6!!! Gotta love the Gunks - there are all these climbs that *shouldn't* be moderate trad routes, but all the big holds are there!
Your photo makes it look so much smaller. In real life, that thing is pretty big! (At least by J-tree standards).
I don't usually like bouldering pics, but this one is really cool!
Wild shot! 9
I don't usually go for bouldering pics, but this is a great shot - 9!
Wow, look at those legs!!! ;) I can't tell, are those sit-harness straps there in addition to the swami belt, or is that just a shadow?
Nice! That first pitch is not a trivial lead. The gear is small, and some of the moves are tricky. And Pirate, nice pics, as always - you've set the standard among us massholes!
What a smile! Someone enjoyed herself that day, eh?
... and then up and over! Yup, nice climb. And nice pic!
I've got a very similar shot here, except yours is actually in focus! http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=24374
I think you misheard - it's named Cantaloupe Island. That's what that big thing in the water is - an escaped Giant Cantaloupe.
Cool pic, and her lungs appear to have blown back up to full size. Is she free-soloing, or is there a lead rope trailing down from her that's hidden from view?
Cute pic. What's the climb?
Cool pic! 7+
Higher resolution, please. This could be a nice pic, but you can't really see anything in it.
Otter cliffs is nice, huh? :) What climb are you on? It looks familiar!
Fabulous! You should allow ratings so this can appear on the Front Page where it belongs!
Um, and because she's climbing to the left of the bolt! Nice pic, Tracy.
Slobmonster - yup, but much, much steeper!
Pretty cool. I've never done that before. But now my eyes feel funny, Mrs Krabappel!
Pretty neat. For some reason the baby's breath in the lower left is much harder to focus on than that in the uppper middle.
The part above the roof is mostly hands, with some fists.
At last you've seen the light, Julia! ;)
Thanks, Pi. Inspired by all the cool photos of yours I've seen on the site.
To the best of my knowledge there has been no route development at The Doll House. It's a long drive or boat ride from anywhere, and those Utahans have too much rock to play with (not fair).
Yeah, I had fun imagining where sweet lines would go. Not having any of my gear, that's all I could do.
Me too! They call it fiery furnace because of the red-orange rock there.
Mrtristan - not that I know of. Not sure if the park has allowed climbing in the Fiery Funace area, but the rock also seems somewhat soft there.
Melodromatic, but still a cool shot. -8-
I think I might be scared, too, with all that slack in the system!
Nice pic, keep snapping!
Looks harder than 5.8
I think I'd rather see four photos with the rope in 'em, but that's just me.
I don't usually like bouldering shots, but this is a nice pic. I like the wide camera angle - gives you a sense of vertigo! And the play of colors (the fall-colored leaves on the ground against the light green of the moss against the bright hair). And the expression on climber and belayer are excellent. -9-
Not your best look. lol!
I agree about the cropping. It feels cluttered to me.
Wow, that looks awesome!!!
Absolute vigilance, and enough slack for a groundfall - d'oh!
Um, it's a hand, an upper arm, and a bouldering pad. I don't get the appeal. ???
Could be a little sharper? Beautiful pic, nevertheless! (8)
How long did epinepherine take you?
You need a perverted comment? Okay, how about "Nice Rack, but w/out a bra on, it seems to be hanging awefully low!"
I must be reading this wrong - how do you get complacent on your first lead? You must be the most relaxed person in the universe! lol!
Congrats. And _very_ nice pic, too!
Haha! My rope tastes delicious!
Nonsense, it's not bad - perfect angle, and you caught a great body position. And I like the halo!
The lower half of the hourglass is concave, with cracks at the joints, and slightly less than vertical. That half looks do-able. The top half is convex, and vertical to overhanging. I think that half would be pretty difficult going.
Maybe not, but it's a pretty pic.
And in case there's any confusion, Flesh for Lulu is the name of the climb!
The anchor looks good, but I can't tell, are those biners opposite and opposed? And someone told me once that you can't trust chains. Maybe you should have put slings directly on the bolts. ;) Oh yeah, cute pic.
Gorgeous!!! The lack of definition doesn't bother me all that much, since it feels like a misty/hazy day.
You weren't just there, you also climbed the route after me!
Beautiful shot. Thanks for sharing!
Smashed? Looks like a little scrape from here. So did he fall or did he redpoint? Or is the redpoint you're refering to the little scrape on his leg?
Pretty pic. Feels very dynamic. Would be nice to see either more or less of the background on the right - as it is it's just kind of distracting.
Not a bad pic, but it's a shame about the branches covering her up - they're very distracting.
skateman, I'd estimate these formations vary from about 45 to about 120 feet tall. ATG - would love to! Not sure how accessible it is by land though. And the hike up from the river is, well steep: 1100 vertical feet in under a mile. I also have an aerial shot of the whole formation which I can load (when I return from this trip) if it might be of interest.
Sweet! Better than any climbing pics I've ever taken!
Very nice photo. Too bad about cutting off the belayer's head.
Very pretty. Did you manipulate the colors at all?
Nice pic! Sorry it's a little washed out.
Nice pic, even if the guy is, to all appearances, nude.
Thanks manacubus! Doesn't hold a candle to all your excellent photos, though.
Careful about those photos. How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Wow. Very impressive! Stupid? Impressive? I dunno. One of the two!
Neat pic. How can he rate and name it if it's not finished?
I love crack. Yummy yum! What's it rated? How steep was it? Is that fingers, or hands?
Mmm... purty clouds.
Wow, crazy looking!
Hooray for no-hands rests on 5.14 climbs!
I love how his chalk bag is pointing straight down!
If you brighten this up (and fix the levels) a bit in photoshop, this might be a great pic.
Wow, good eye! Only it's "Mammut" (like wooly mammoth, but in German) not "marmot", like the fat furry rat-like animals that live in scree piles. LOL!
The climb does take kinda small gear... And bolts. ;)
A lot of people have told me I'm very flexible, but Sue, you're the first person to accuse me of tasting my own nuts!
Hooray, a new photo for the "I look like a dog-faced-boy thread!"
If only you knew how close he came to soiling them later in the day. LOL!!!
Really cool photo, actually.
Duhh... which way's this route go? :)
Flesh _for_ Lulu. Nice sticker.
Wow, talk about fancypants!
Congrats! Got any photos with the big wall backdrop?
What is that, Airation?
Makes me shiver just looking at it.
Yeah, it's a fun move to get over to that spur you're standing on, eh? On anoother note - why twins rather than doubles?
Fun! Still in the States, then?
A huge congratulations, Rob. I remember you saying how much you wanted to do this, and everyone poo-pooing it. Well, now you've gone and done it, haven't you!
Seventh Seal is a great line. Was my first 5.10 trad lead. It's similar to The Green Adjective (LCC, Salt Lake City).
Cool, thanks for posting!
It does. Very pretty. Profile, though, not topo.
You can really see from this perspective how Cannon likes to shed its layers!
Sweet. And nice rope management.
Did you climb the OW, Julia?
Looks like it was sculpted out of clay - and a fork!
What, afraid of a little ice? Who are you?! And what have you done with my friend Julia?!!
The odd blur at top and bottom is a little offputting - guess that's the broken lens. At any rate, sweet photo - thanks!
Beee-yuuuu-teee-ful! I too would like to see it at higher resolution.
I love crack.
Gorgeous! Looks like slabs of chocolate icing.
Nice Pic, Mary - 7. If you don't mind a little constructive criticism: it's a shame that the top of the climber's head is cut off, and the face is a little out of focus. Look forward to more pics!
I like the look of determination on her face.
"I LOVE CRACKS!" -- Mary. Me too!
Another nice pic!
Nice pic, Jake! Who's it taken by?
Wow, that looks hard! What's up with the rope runners around the shoulder. Is this to set up a rap station?
Nice pic, crisp and clean, with interesting rock, and a good angle. Pretty good for a bouldering pic!
If you have a 60m rope, it's best to do the whole thing in one long pitch, since the crux is ten or fifteen feet above the belay bolts (with no intervening gear), and there's excellent placements for a gear anchor at the top.
I don't usually like bouldering pics, but this is a Great Pic! Please submit more!
Sweet pic! I'd be afraid if I fell on lead that the whole flake would rip off.
It's a shame it's kind of out of focus.
Nice pic!!! I threw a leg right through the crack and over the top!
Yeah, our plan was to link the first two pitches of Strictly to Shockley's. Would have been great! Got most of the way through pitch two before the skies opened up (torrential rain, lightning, thunder, the works.) But I'll look for Gaston next time I'm there - thanks!
I just want to fondle it. Is that so wrong?
He cut the fingers off them at 3/4 length.
Jeremy, the long steep left-facing corner is pitch two. This pic is from p3. I hope you didn't skip the last pitch, it's the best part of the climb!
Fun, eh? Some nice climbing there. You hit Precipice as well, I hope? Also good stuff at Greathead!
Scrapbook? Nah, keep 'em with your gear, and do some more cracks!
How many? From the high-res version of this pic, it looked like there were around 60+ cams.
Thanks for sharing!
Yanqui, I also led Creme de Shorts (5.9). Thought it was pretty stiff for the grade, but I did manage to OS it.
Congrats on the climb. Next time get it without the hang.
Beautiful! Feels a little under-exposed (dark, low contrast) but GORGEOUS composition makes up for it!
Good god, it looks like the cover of a sci-fi book. Can this be real?
beautiful composition. You really have an eye.
The pic is too small to be able to see anything much. At that size (104 K) the pic should be three times that size, at least.
Gorgeous photo; "9". But there is a weird effect. Almost like you overdid it on the "sharepen" tool.
Can you resubmit a little bigger? Hard to see the details of the rock or the climber's face.
Wow is right!!!
Gorgeous shot! Looks like the climber's head is just about to poke through the clouds!
Cool. Only sorry we can't see your face.
Nice pic. You look pretty serious in those shades.
Nice pic! Bonnie's is high on my to-do list for next year.
Beautiful pic, but geeze, how come boulderers never jam? Looks like perfect fingers just a couple inches above where you're laybacking.
Chimney? I don't remember a chimney on The Swift.
Your first ever climb was also your first ever lead, and you came tumbling off it. Wild! I'd like to meet you some day.
I love IC. What a shame it's so far away from me. Sweet pic.
Nice. Reminds me of Great Head, at Acadia NP, in Maine.
must be a compression artifact then. It's only distracting in the shirt, but still a great photo. Kudos!
Sweet! But I'd probably photochop out the couple on the road.
Ah, that explains the cool lighting - nice!
Well, sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
Wild pic! How'd you get that crazy lighting?
Wild and eerie.
No offence meant, but you appear to be attempting to ride a giant penis. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
Nice pic. Really nice!
Great pic! Too bad it's a little washed out.
I agree. An elephant wearing rouge would clash so terribly with the bright orange cordellette, it would stop right in its tracks!
A big runout. A big exposure. A traverse under a looming roof. Sweet pic!
That's a nice pic.
It was a good day.
U R a cute couple.
The rock is so red! Cool pic! What's that bulky thing with red webbing wrapped around it, just below the climber?
Well j_ung, at least there's plenty of bomber gear under the roof. I know, because the first time I tried to pull the roof, I kept backing down and adding more pieces. I finally pulled through the roof once I'd gotten up to three or four!
It's a totally fun pic! Only trouble is that it's hard to see. Would you be willing to submit it at a higher resolution? "Low" goes up to 48K. Thanks!
Too bad much of the climb is gone now. Covered in big dig dirt.
Excellent shot. How'd you get all that blurring around the edges of the subject?
Well it worked out great - congrats! Do you remember what the shutter speed was?
No kidding - the boulder just looks like any other boulder. Sure, it's nice, but what an amazing tree - it has wonderful character!
Handholds? Who needs handholds? It's slab! ;)
What he said. Oh, and what the other guy said, too!
Oh, and the pic itself is a 9 (IMHO).
Wow! Great pic! Is it just a reflection off the reddish brown rock, or do you actually have a tan?
Wow, what a pic!
Cool pic! I'd love to see it bigger.
Yeah, I figured... but y'know, stranger things have happened! Anyway, it really is a stellar pic. Brace yourself for a lot more comments/compliments.
morcomm, you spelled "moron" wrong when you picked your username.
She looks happy!
Very nice pic. Only sorry it's a little out of focus.
Nicest butt-shot I've seen in a long long time. I love the flow of the photo.
Looks like fun!
That's gotta be a good feeling.
Now *that's* what they mean by a profile pic.
Nice pic, just too bad it's out of focus.
Your grandfather was Goodro? Cool!
Awesome! Possibly the best of the bunch.
Nice! You go, girl!
Another cool pic!
I like this one best of all. I like the line of sight along the rope and into the camera.
Yup, nice Mantle shot.
Nice pic. I like stark feel of the dead-looking trees.
Hahahaha! Too funny!
Is she trying to do it hands-free? Anyway, decent pic.
I dunno. Your rack seems kinda small to me. All I see is a couple of cams. I bet there's more hidden under that excellent rope of yours.
Ditto. (Exept for the part about being Loran, and being from Dover)
I disagree with all the folks saying chop the photo. The only thing that should be chopped is the head in the lower right. The other two are nice in that they help return the eye to the subject. I think it's an excellent shot. One of the best bouldering shots, anyway.
Nah, I'd say they fit just fine.
I don't get it, it just looks like a woman climbing a boulder over a pile of dirt. The clarity and exposure levels are good, but that's about the best I can say for this photo. What am I missing?
Very good crisp clarity, and you captured a nice sense of emotion.
I need a before and (when it's available) after. Let's see the progression!
I like the vegetation. I like the hint of color, and the feeling of bedraggled nature trying to assert itself. The texture *is* a little distracting, though. If the greenery were more out of focus, that might work better. But I really like the shot!
Why do I get the impression that if she let go his rope, it would rise, not fall?
Nice jugs. And the ascenders aren't bad either! (hardy har har)
And as of late June 2005, that same pin is still good for a fall!
I like the look of determination. That's a lot of QDs. How many bolts is this sucker?
Too bad it's slightly out of focus. Stellar composition!
That's awesome! Captures the full feeling of the "belly flop topout"! The untied shoelace add an extra little touch to the general feeling of "Ugh - glad that's done!"
Very sweet, thanks for sharing!
Beautiful pic. A little eerie.
Cool pic. Doesn't even look like Rumney's rock.
LOL! Rachel looks like she's about 12 in this photo!
Yup, that's me! Nice pic, Chris! It really captures that "topping out at the end of the day" feel. I like how it looks like we're a thousand feet up, rather than just 200'.
Yeah, nice freaking lead!
That's a keeper!
I like it!
Yeah, I've gotten those before. Mostly from aid climbing or from TR belaying a partner who weighs a lot directly off my harness.
The Anasazi, in their native environment!
Thanks. It really is a stellar route! Personal footnote: on my rest day after completing this route I spent the day cragging with the FA of the route. How cool is that?!
Wow, thanks for the "9"! I guess you could get your vote changed by the powers that be here, but it's really not worth the trouble. Anyway, thanks for the kudos!
Yup - a beautiful smile!
I can't remember why I wound up wearing those. I meant to wear my approach shoes...
U R not ugly as sin.
Thanks, both of you! Cowpoke - I assume you mean anxiously awaiting Larry's return west?
I didn't know they had backgrounds that look like that in the photographers' studios! Cool!
The girl on the left looks like she's waiting for Nikki to fall so she can punch her in the kidneys!
Yup - very cool shot. I'd give it an 8. Would be higher, but the color is a little washed out.
Hard to tell. I always look at a person's rack first, and yours is not visible in this pic.
It starts with a traverse, so you don't ever have to look up at your leader.
"A 3?" - and now a 7, too. I'd rate it higher, but it's really fuzzy.
Next time don't forget your fishing pole, yr tent, and yr kayak!
Everyone heel hooks right at the end of the traverse, what's unique about Chris is that he heel hooked right the *whole way* (harder)!
Yes, there's a #1 (red) Camalot to the right of the obvious piece with the very long sling.
It looks like the Earth is tipping over. I know the angle is right, but what's the deal with the horizon?
Okay, now it's visible. Nice!
I also like how the moon looks like a yin/yang symbol.
I love it! It captures that big wall feel of being "out there"
Cool pic - looks hard!
Plus my face and arm are now all spotty - what's happening!
The lighting is terrible. A camera-angle flash "flattens" everything, so there's no way you'll see any kind of definition in your back. Try again with natural lighting or with the lighting in the gym and a slower shutter speed.
When did you do the climb? How was the rock? Was it messed up a lot?
Not a big fan of bouldering pics in general, but as far as they go, this one's excellent. I gave it a 7, but would change that to an 8 if I could.
She needs to shave some of the shrubbery first!
That view from on top of Precipice really can't be beat!!! (even without the cutie in the foreground!) If it wasn't such a long drive, I'd climb there all the time.
Dude - you've got no rack at all! [url=http://www.rockclimbing.com/photo/photo_show.php?id=60212]Here's[/url] the one with the rack!
Looks good, but wouldn't it have been better if the biner through the cam had gone through both sets of lobes? That would have kept the lobes from retracting.
You're right! But I don't bomb photos, so enjoy the rating, for whatever it's worth!
Is there a smiley to signify whistling?
Very nice pic!
I don't know what it is, but I really like this pic.
That's where I'll be on Sunday! Rain or shine. (I'll rope solo the damn thing if I have to). Never done it before. Woohoo!
And as fabulous a photo as ever. Really stunning.
Just did that climb today - mostly upon Holly's recommendation! Great route! Cool to see "the move" (or one shorly thereafter) to get onto the flake.
What a riot! Great pic. Who else is pictured here? Any other rc.commers?
Yup. Believe it or not, this climb follows a single continuous crack system for almost the entirety of its eight pitches! It's about 2/3 aid, 1/3 free.
Can't really tell - how high is she?
Jeeze, how come the pics of me on *my* walk-outs in the dark, I always look like I've been run over a few times? God damn you two are stunning!
Stunning photo! Gorgeous!
Neat pic. The rock looks like a choppy ocean, with Elizabeth between waves. I don't like the upside-down thing, though. It's way overdone.
Where was this?
Wow, the rock is more colorful than you are. Very pretty.
That is a beautiful crack. <drool> I'd do it.
What is that - off fingers? Ugh!
Very nice shot!
Cool. What's that biner on the right (by her left hand)?
Sorry to not jump on the bandwagon, but while it's a very good shot, I'd just like to say that I'm sick and tired of the pics oriented with the rock upside-down to appear steeper. It's overdone, it's a cheap trick, it's disorienting and distracts from the rest of the elements of the photo. I think it only really makes sense on severely overhanging terrain, where it is the only natual orientation.
Hey, nice to see that Rachael lives! Say hi from me! Is she living down there somewhere?
Is this a still from a video or something? It's a nice action shot, but it's hard to look beyond the bizarre pixelation. Otherwise, nice shot.
It's very sweet!
Um, you want to lean out a little or you'll get, uh... scraped! Seriously, though - cool shot.
Admit it, she's just lying down on the pavement!
Wow, looks a lot higher than two pitches!
Nice composition, but it all looks kind of fuzzy and dark to me. Eh...
Unless it's a roof, I don't want to see these upside-down shots. It's a cheap way of making the route look steeper, and it's disorienting and makes it hard to tell what's really happening in the photo. Rotate this 90 degrees CCW, and you've got a pretty good shot.
That's only 11a? Jeez, it looks holdless!
Goddam that looks hard.
Nice pic, though I'd crop out the dirty landing, and I'd like to see a more crisp shot. Probably just an artifact of the low resolution, though.
Misty - she certainly can! Check out the Trip Report titled "Calanques TR..."
Wish it was *this* Gabe.
Nice shot is right!
"Is Rachael from NZ? --socialclimber" Yes, she is.
Sorry, can't read the first word - looks like "pood", but that can't be right?
Hard to see - which one are you?
Cool! Makes me want to be there!
IC is so beautiful
This is a very attractive girl, but what's wrong with her face? Why does it match your shoes (pink and yellow)?
Looks more like john travolta "Stayin Alive".
"in the white shirt, next to the guy in the blue t shirt?? --mcgivney_nh" No, mcg, she's eight years old.
Oh shit. Spooky.
That's a really nice photo. Never noticed it before.
This photo is absolutely hilarious. 10+++ Thanks!
You're running alright! Stop to place some pro sometime - there are impressionable newbies around! ;)
Very sweet pic.
Nice rack. Oops, I mean you must have worked very hard to get it all. Nice job!
Beautiful pic. If you don't mind a little constructive criticism, I'd just mention that if it were my pic, I'd crop out the rock protruding along the top of the frame. It's hard to tell what's happening there, and it's distracting. Other than that, excellent photo!
cky888 - Your rope through a biner or straight through the hanger?
I like all the triangles in the picture.
Wish I was there now.
Brent_e: Early March, New York, go figure.
Jen, nice send - Cory, nice pic!
Sweet pic. Spooky.
Wonderful!!! Is that the "wow, we actually made it" look I see?
Ho ho ho!!!
Loose? Nonsense! If the capstone feels like it's going to slide off, just push it back over to where it belongs before you hop up on that bad boy. :) Great climb - super fun.
You rock, too, man! Don't fool yourself, I loved every minute of it!
No drag - it's solo-aid.
Your Back Door was a little too close the the Hugh G Rection, eh? Not your thing, eh?
Gorgeous photo! The light is magical!
Nice photo, but I feel let down. Needs more babes. ;)
Good story, nice photo. Love the way the bay frames the subject. Just sorry the whole thing seems a little blurred.
Thanks. It was very difficult to get photos of the pitch from where I was standing above. I had to hold the camera at arms length forward, point it down, and hope that my subject was in the frame!
Old Town plus Blue Eyed Climber = Old Blue Eyes. Hey, I thought it was catchy!
Gorgeous! The creek is just so absolutely stunning.
Oh, and best of the bunch IMO.
Gorgeous! Any work in photoshop? The Creek is just unreal - so beautiful.
Nice shot, uh, at least I think. It's hard to tell - I think it's just the terrible jpeg compression. Otherwise, it's not so good. Would like to see it less compressed, please!
Looks like he's getting out just before Ms Pacman eats him alive.
I'm with Clausti - the angle of the horizon is really disconcerting. Aside from that - very nice!
Can you resubmit at higher quality? The mushy compression is a drag. Also - runout - why? Don't have any big cams?
Gorgeous pic. This bolted crack doesn't look bad to me. Saw plenty worse at Shelf Road. Still clipped 'em, though. Not my home crag, not my business.
This is approaching the perfect shot to capture the feel of hard sport climbing! Nice!
Wow!!! Power! And what I love about this shot is the look in her eyes. She's obviously exhausted, but the knowledge that success is just a few moves away shines through like a beacon!
Ha! I have exactly that photo. Except it's a different person rapping.
God, what a fun route!
Awesome! Does it go through the roof?
Hah! Above the right-hand shrub you see, it becomes super-clean. Unfortunately, from my belay stance, it also becomes just another butt-shot when the climber is up in the clean corner.
Poised... or posed? maybe it's not, but it looks artificial to me.
Odd lighting. Perhaps it's just the light filtering through the canopy above, but it looks like she's in a spotlight. Perhaps this is what you're aiming for? I like how it's pseudo-monochromatic.
I rather wish her eyes didn't look like dark empty sockets. Aside from that, pretty shot!
Sweet, thanks for the laugh!
Nice shot! The jpeg compression is awful, though.
There's not much slack - only a few inches. Doesn't she know that sometime you have to suffer a little for art? ;)
Where are the bruises and scrapes? Sheesh, I used to think you were kinda cute. ;)
Hey, nice belay! ;) Congrats.
So far as I'm concerned, buttonheads and star dryvins are one-use only. I know they're good for more than that, but if I didn't place 'em, I have no idea what's left in 'em.
Sure looks like junk to me. Quarter inch buttonhead with rust dripping from it. Yikes.
Nice shot! Looks a lot like Table Mountain in Boulder CO.
The color balance looks totally artificial. Sorry, it just looks fake, and I can't see past that.
Damn, those are some loooong cam slings!
Gorgeous photo. Just curious, did you sharpen it in photoshop? All the edges look outlined.
Looks hard! Nice body positioning and composition in the photo, but it's too "shades of gray" for my liking.
Goddamn that looks hard.
I have a feeling that in higher resolution/bigger this pic might have more impact. As it is, it's quite flat with only a few highlights that stand out.
Wild photo! How'd you do that?
No way I'd do that to my hands. I'd go with a matched hands or hand-to-fist jam instead. Or just layback the sucker.
Getting out to the chimney doesn't look bad - the undercling looks solid. But then getting established in the chimney could be a bitch.
Neat photo. What's the story behind "Virabhadrasana III". Is that some famous Yogi?
Very nice photo. Can you re-submit it at a higher resolution? The jpeg compression is really affecting it.
Aha! (or should I say aja?) That explains it! Sounds like your friend accidentally was zooming at the same time as they pressed the shutter. I like it!
You've just got to share the story on this one. It's too bizarre!
Really nice pic. Kudos to both A and D.
I think orangekyak just saw the pic before anyone had voted on it; the default is five.
Gorgeous! Higher res, please!
Dude, pull up your pants - noone here wants to see that!
Compared to some of the moves on P2 of Directissima, no, it's not bad. But for a 5.6 leader...
Cool photo - I really like it!
Just my opinion, but I think the photo would be a lot nicer if you rotated it so you see Emily's pretty smile.
Gorgeous! Two thumbs, way up!
Tips crack overhanging laybacking? Damn - yeah, I'd say that's hard!
Damn! Lucky that pile of mud didn't collapse! I'd like to see them all try to hang off the anchors at the top! ;)
ringlocks = ouch.
Took a few minutes for me to find it, but anyone who likes the above pic should check out this one too -> http://www.rockclimbing.com/photo/photo_show.php?id=45800
It is a perfect image of trust. More to the image, too. look at the dad's face. THAT is a perfect image of FOCUS. You could stick a sword through him right at that moment and he wouldn't flinch. Awesome photo.
Please submit at higher resolution - great photo!
Nice pic! Binou's was my first in IC. Fun!
Don't know if it's the longest in terms of feet and inches, but it's certainly the hardest lead - so it's longest in terms of time spent.
"is it cloudy? misty? or are you just that high up?
" It was one of those hot, hazy, summer days. God bless 'em!
Great route, huh?!! And I think you could easily protect the whole thing with bomber hexes.
Neat pic. And holy shit that looks like a huge stretch!
So glad I've got a big screen. Gorgeous!
Strange blue tones in the pic, but nice photo.
Very nice shot. I'd like to register just one vote for rotating it, though. Sigh...
Wow! That's all I can say, just Wow! Oh, and a higher res pic would be nice.
Beautiful photo. 10.
Gorgeous. Very impressive pic.
Sweet shot. His first lead ever? NICE!
Always thought this was a sweet pic. Thanks for posting it here!
I love it!!! Birds, er, um, fish of a feather?
Sweet pic, thanks for submitting!
Very cool! Now *that* is traditional climbing!
Wait for it...
Gorgeous, thanks for sharing!
Unbelievably sweet! Thanks for sharing the moment!
Sweet photo. And nice looking route! Did you make the move?
Yup, a GUNKS 5.3. :)
Cool pic. Coyote looks spooky in this one.
Beauty. Thanks for sharing!
Damn, not what I was hoping. Don't get me wrong, you're cute and all, but I was really hoping you'd have eight arms. What makes you octagal?
Nice photo. Good clarity.
Sweet pic! Hooray for japanese tourists!
Nice pic! Uh... I mean, humbug! Ice is for drinks!
U R A Q T
Sweet, thanks for the laugh! It's a wonderfully froglike pose, and the big shiny glasses and tongue out only help out. Say ribbit for me. Please? C'mon, do it!
Nice shot! All it needs now is a dog and a raincloud at the horizon. ;)
Very nice pic.
Do you have a higher resolution shot you could post? As nice as this one is, it feels kind of grainy.
Nice! I like it with beta guy, he's funny! Just glad I have a huge monitor, otherwise this pic would simply be too big to view.
Nice pic! The washed out background takes away from it a little, though.
Super for both of you! Careful - she's a cutie!
Congrats. Must be great fun!
Nice shot! The ladies will be drooling over it soon enough, no doubt!
Good god. I've never seen a shot like it. Fantastic! Two thumbs way, way up! Higher res, please!
Here's one vote for a larger higher-res version to be loaded here if you wouldn't mind...
Seems like an awfully thin rack for big wall! But anyway, nice shot!
Another sweet shot!
Love the colors and the expression.
The infamous WoS! Cool!
Sweet pic, even if it is a little dark!
Nice pic but kind of grainy. Low exposure level? Low size?
Cool pic! I like how you are the only color in the photo! Really give the feel of a miserable, wet, disappointing day...
Another sweet pic! Hooray for cracks, whatever they're in!
Latest version you uploaded looks much better, thanks for doing that!
Ouch! You know you can submit this at up to 128k, right? I'd consider doing so. The compression artifacts here are terrible!
this is a test
Now that's what I call a hair-raising experience!
Still a pretty pic, though. What's that white blob hanging over her head?
Cool pic! What's it attached to?
Three ropes and all those big cams? You sure you didn't just back off after getting too tired on the approach? ;)
You look hot.
Very good climb, but never have found a true 5.8 way through that crux, have you?
A little blurry, but great composition. Looks like fun!
I did not notice the apparent lack of gear. I did notice the apparent lack of pants, though.
Uh, I've done that climb, and it's pretty high to be a "boulder problem".
Hmm, tilt the camera much? ;)
How come we can't see any balls in this pic?
She's a smooth operator.... This pic brings back good memories from when I did Frogland. Thanks!
Nice view of the upper pitches of Epinephrine.
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing!
Nice job, and nice pic, but dude, eat something!
Um, he doesn't appear to be leading, which "Onsight" implies. Do you mean a Top-Rope onsight?
Six pitches, I think. And yup - very fun, in an exhausting kind of way!
Pyro - haha! Yup! The_pirate asked if he could rap down from the top to take pics. How could I say no - free pics from a professional photographer! He was not at all distracting, and very patient.
It was fun, but adding on the 5.10 finish made if funner! I know "funner" is not a word, but it's right on anyway!
BEC - took me all day. I made two mistakes that cost me a lot of time: 1 - didn't bring enough biners, and 2 - forgot(!) to back clean. Because of those two factors, I couldn't run together the pitches as planned.
Great pic, but I wish you hadn't rotated it to have her face upside down. Pet peeve of mine.
Well, nice job not dying! Thanks for sharing - the pic says it all.
Sure doesn't look 10b. But where on earth did you get the imagery of power-sanded ass-cheeks? Zoinks!
cool pic, and a nice looking crack.
Looks like the impact was right at the top of the helmet. That's the only place they're designed to absorb impact. Because they're designed to absorb impact from rockfall. Most lead climbers don't fall right on the top of their heads (and a good thing, too!)
Wait a minute, that's Shockley's? I've done it three times, and don't remember it looking like that. Sure you weren't "a bit off" route?
Cool pic! Too bad your head's cut off. Still nice!
Very cool pic. Just a shame you didn't top out.
Very cool pic!
Welcome back to the climbing world!!!
What kind of shoes?
Jeremy, that's great, I love it!
This is about as good as a butt-shot can get. Well done!
Fun! Nice pic.
Thanks for the criticism. I think next time I take the pic, I need to stand further back. Or else someone needs to trim that tree!
That's a pretty thin start, huh? Or did he do the version where you traverse in on the undercling?
Nice! Did you you follow the bolts? I think if you go further right or left at the first bolt, it's not really 5.10.
Yeah, a friend who's *already* posted this picture. ;) Lucander, if you want to whine about this pic being up too much, whine because the same exact pic is now being posted by multiple parties!
Cool. Spooky, but cool.
Beautiful photo! Like other folks, it's hard to understand why there'd be preplaced gear on a warm-up.
Cool pic, nevertheless!
Looks like a very cool climb. Didn't know you could climb in the Grand Canyon!
Very cool route. Looks like Indian Creek.
Thanks folks, glad you like it! Yes, irish - the feet are just a series of heel hooks. Though there's also a slight lip in the underside of the roof you can use to keep your body in position.
Pretty pic. Shame we can't see your hands. Like the shadows and light.
I'd recognize that big roof and the view anywhere! End of the second, beginning of the third pitch, Frogland! Great climb!
Looks like a cool route. Those huecos are huge!
Wow! Absolutely awesome! Zion is so sweet.
Superb. Only way a butt-shot could be better is if he was a she. Seriously, though - gorgeous shot.
Ain't Summer grand!
Woo hoo! Too bad it's a little dark.
Looks like we have a winner in the Best Toprope category! Nice pic.
Peakchaser, I think you might need to use a little moisturizer. Your skin is looking a little dry.
Fun! Nice perspective.
Beautiful photo. Thanks for sharing!
You do realize why people build walls out of wood, right?
Nice route to start on!
Nice, but waaaay too small. Please submit at higher resolution!
Cool looking formation.
Wish the rock wasn't blurry. Looks like a little hand-shake. Otherwise, fantastic shot. Really like the feel of movement.
Super-cool! Looks like you're eight miles high! What the hell is that in the upper right corner? Looks like terraces down into the depths of the earth.
Gorgeous. The rock is a little too "contrast-ey", though, and I find it distracting. Or maybe it only appears so at this resolution. Otherwise, gorgeous shot!
Where are the gratuitous comments? C'mon girls, step up!
I'd crop out a lot of the top of the photo, though, and then it'd be a *five*.
Wow! Sweet shot!
Nice pic! That one's near the top of my to-do list!
Cool pic, thanks for sharing!
cool, but bizarre! What caused this?
Pretty! A little too much contrast - hard to see details.
pink sunglasses and an orange top? So wrong! ;)
photo is too small
too small. Can't see anything in the photo.
Cool pic. Would be nice to see some of the surroundings.
Weird. What route? Who on earth would do this?
Very pretty setting.
Very cool. I'd like to see a larger version if you could.
Cool back muscle shot!
Cool, good for her! One gripe though - that's an awfully detailed description! If I'd read that before climbing it, I would consider it too much beta for me to consider it an onsight!
Cool! Did you take this photo?
Nice attentive spotter! :)
Can you please ask Mike Stern to take shots where you can see something? Anything? At least one of your handholds is visible in this shot.
Unusual top, pretty girl, and nice exposure. But the photo still sucks. Why? There's nothing happening in this photo! It's boring!
So cool! I wanna grab those knobs!
Nice crack! :)
Looks like good times!
Cool. How's the gear above the anchor?
Nice shot of a nice route.
Hard to see much - the pic is too small and resolution too low.
Gorgeous! Where's Cedar River Slab? Can you link to routes DB?
What's your point? I probably own three. Did you read the description of the photo?
Pretty picture. The framing with the leaves is beautiful.
Nice photo! ;)
Fun, thanks for sharing!
What makes it a 10c? Looks like a ladder.
I generally don't like bouldering pics, but this one's done so nicely!
Definitely an exceptional photo.
Uh... what's the climb? redrocks is a big place.
Nice! I like the expression in pic1!
I think it's a nice pic, but it's so damn small I can't really see much. Can you please resubmit a larger version?
Ha! That black alien is crap! Let me drop some rocks on it to test it for you.
Colors look totally artificial.
Easy? Huh, where's it go at the roof?
Where is this?
Isn't this the same route you said was her first 5.10?
Cool pic! Would like to see it cut in a little closer.
I've done a 12b (Social Outcast) that was way easier, and a 12a (Captain Hook) that's considered pretty hard for the grade, but which also felt easier than Flesh. So, while grades are always subjective, calling it a definitive 12a is a big stretch, in my book.
Nice shot. Why the harness? Did you really just photoshop out the rope?
Too bad it's so tiny. Very cool pic - higher res please!!!
Never mind all the leaves on your butt, what's that on your hip? It looks like some kind of cellphone case?
Cool. Nice first lead!
Robster clearly has less than no clue about wide cracks.
Looks pretty sweet.
Looks pretty fun. Nice job finding climbable rock in FL!
Oh, and superb photo, btw.
What are they? Literally icicles? How can they be growing from the floor up?
I like the matching chalkbag.
Eek! That's no Alien, that's for sure! Looks more like the Zeros, which I hate (for exactly that reason - poor range).
Yup. FP bound, fer sure!
Beautiful, and dramatic. Thanks for sharing!
Stunning. Where is this formation?
Invalid. Bolted crack. ;)
Very cool, I like it!
kind of hard to tell what's happening. Which way is up?
"he"? I don't know about you, but around here "Elizabeth" is a girl's name. Nice pic, by the way!
One of the best pics I've seen from this area. Thanks so much for sharing!
Must... not... make... comment... about..... jugs...
okay, um, why?
Pretty funny! Did that arrive naturally, or did you create it for the photo? And if it was actually real, you just have to explain how and why! Best explanation I can come up with is that you're preparing to rap, and several (three? four?) people are all sharing the anchor temporarily. Talk about an accident waiting to happen. Okay, I'm ready to rap, now who's biners am I taking off the anchor? Eek!
Very cool pic. And pardon me for saying, so, Elizaclimber, but it's more than a little erotic. Not that there's anything wrong with that! :)
What are the tactical applications of smacking headfirst into any obstacles you encounter?
Rape is not cool, dude.
What kind of cams are those?
Nothing wrong with Forged Friends - I climb with them at the Gunks myself. But you really need to add Gunks Tieoffs to them. PM me if you're not sure what that means.
That's the first time I've seen someone deep water soloing, but still protected by a Cam!!!
Gorgeous. And that looks way harder than 5.11a!
Neat angle, I like it!
Ha! You're going to get everyone all pissed off about bolted crack again! Anyway, nice to see you're still climbing. And leading pretty hard, it looks like!
I dunno. One thing I do know, though, is that this is a FANTASTIC pic. I'm always happy to see that it is possible to take good pics of bouldering.
Very weird pic. Put down the mouse and step back from the Photoshop now, before someone gets hurt...
And cool pic!
I like the look of determination. More pics
I like this pic.
Hmm... I'm going to guess that this pic is rotated a little.
Hmmm... I'd rather just have three plain-old sliding-Xs. That way I can use the slings for other stuff, too.
Pretty photo. Thanks for sharing!
Something is weird with this photo - looks like it's underwater and the rock looks darker than any rock I've ever seen at the Gunks.
Nice pic. Aren't Les Calanqes great!?
Really cool looking rock!
I just want to say that I visited your site, and your photos are superb. Kudos!
This at Otter Cliffs? Looks like it.
Ants line? Congrats!
That's a neat trick! Can you teach me to do that?
Holy hell, that's only 5.11? The jugs must be HUGE! Anyway, gorgeous photo. 5 Stars!
Nice photo, aside from the blurring effect, which I don't like at all.
Just to clarify what's been said before - you captured good expression in Alli's face, but with the photo in this orientation, you threw it completely out the window. There's no way to read her face at all. The only thing this orientation does is to make the climb appear steep. Which, if it were steep, might be a good thing. But as it's a slab, well... Aside from that, it's a very worthwhile pic.
Nope, you're not missing anything. That's how it goes at the Gunks.
Let me guess - type one is fun at the time, type two is fun in retrospect?
Very cool pic. Too bad it's kind of fuzzy and low-contrast. But I still dig it!
Thanks! To me it looks like gramps forgot his dentures again.
Go on and get in there! From what I can see in the entry zone, looks like it'll take your fist, no problem.
cool. How high did you get?
pretty pic. I like the colors.
Congrats! Via North Chimney?
Nice pic! But since when is Ant's Line a 9+? I always thought it was a breaking-into-the-grade 5.9 for the Gunks.
Hmm... let me guess - Old Town?
The world is upside down! Can the pic be rotated?
Hmm, looks like image is rotated to make climb appear steeper. It makes the photo appear weird. Not helpful.
Nice lighting, though not the best angle. Anyway, keep it up, more pics are good.
Looks like the crack is bolted, and maybe the belayer is using that bolt (certainly someone is) but the climber is *not* clipped into that bolt. Looks like the climber is working on placing a first piece. Also looks like there's a separate rope (the blue one) that no-one in the shot is using. And it looks like the photo is rotated 45 degrees. All in all, a bizarre and confusing photo.
Nice going, Alison (and Core)! You're on the front page!
Cute shot! Can you submit it bigger?
Beatiful shot, but the angle lies. Based on how the cams are hanging, the camera seems to be tilted 45 degrees.
It is a beautiful shot, and (I hope) I'd do the same thing if I took the pic. Just pointing out the camera angle.
Um, it's tiny. Can't see anything.
Great pic of a great climb.
That's an unusual way of carrying a cordelette! Anyway, nice pic.
ChrisPritchard: Nothing to do with climbing. It only has to do with climbers.
Hmm... I don't remember that bit as being very cruxy. I thought the thin face (barely visible above) was a hell of a lot harder.
Whoa! Sweet looking line.
Great pic! Love the twilight. It adds to the pucker factor!
Very cute pic! Love the look of determination on her face!
Yeah, BEC, I've put a bunch of people (yourself included) on the FP. Don't think I've ever been on it myself, though. Probably has something to do with keeping the good looking one on the right end of the lens!
If that's really a slab and you're being lowered, that looks painful! Fun shot, though. Where is it?
Beautiful is right...
Beautiful photo, thanks for sharing!
I like the headware! But Lonesome Dove the best 10 at Rumney!? Whatchoo smokin?!
Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing, Brad!
Why are you all yellow?
Sounds like a really sweet line. Congrats! And, based on the name of the route, are another congrats in order?
No doubt. I think this one's eyeing my rope with lusty intent.
Great pic! I remember being in that position and thinking "Uh oh, where's my next hold?!"
Sorry, but the tilted perspective kind of ruins it for me. Anyway, nice send, Greg!
Both under- and over-exposed. Too bad, looks like it could be a cool pic. Maybe do some PS work on it to fix the levels?
As a photo, it doesn't work for me. My eyes can't find anything to settle on.
Very pretty scene. Is the horizon really tilted like that? It feel weird.
Beautiful shot, thanks for sharing!
Wow! Very cool!
Ha! Nice pose!
Uh... why'd you cut out half the climber?
Really cool photo. Just a shame we can't see her face.
Nice pic! Sure makes it look steeper than it really is, though.
Really nice. Best photo I've ever seen of this route. Does a beautiful job of capturing the feel of it.
Regarding the belayer being too far from the wall - y'all may be right, up to a point. But the first piece is a bolt, so zippering the gear just ain't gonna happen.
Weird angle... looks like she's flying sideways!
What a cutie! Nice pic!
Is that bird poop on your nose?
Never seen a gym roof with a feature like that before. Pretty cool.
Yeah. Very neat photo. I like it a lot.
Holy hell that looks hard. 10a? Maybe if it's slabby...
It's really 5.8. The (otherwise excellent) pic makes it look much harder than it is. It's a crack on a slab with lots of horizontals for feet.
Brad, it is indeed a great pic! My suggestion would actually be to load the photos to rc.com smaller, so *you* are responsible for their compression, and can make sure they still look great. The auto-compression that rc.com does is, naturally, not as good.
Cool pic! Too bad it's a little blurry.
Nice blue tailed skink! Fair number of 'em at the Gunks.
Fantastic photo! And really interesting rock.
Sheesh, what were you thinking!!!? Fun route, though, eh?
Thanks! It's a beautiful area!
No trees at the start of Pine Tree Eliminate. But it could be at the base of Airation / top of Thin Air. That would be my guess.
Whatever it is, it looks fun. Oh, and nice nuts!
Something about this photo makes me dizzy. Is the camera tilted? Or is the world off-kilter? Or is it just me?
This is by far the best of this group of pics.
What? No hiking, and no Zion.
Never mind the ladder. What's up with the mannekin hanging from the ceiling!? BTW, nice looking gym.
Again, really good pic, but too small!
Nice pic. Would be better if you submitted it larger, though. 300x400 is barely big enough to see overall body position, and not nearly big enough to appreciate the detail (what you're holding/standing on, rock texture, etc).
I'd blame your monitor. It looks entirely clear to me - it's a thumbs-down (palm-out) finger lock.
Hey you too, get a room! Oh wait, I see by the photo you're already *in* a room. In bed actually. Yikes! Nevermind, I was just leaving...
Cool, thanks for the invite! Those two pins on the right and left are bizarre! Never seen anything like 'em.
Looks like a fun climb. I'm surprised I've never done it!
Thanks, I like it too! I can't take credit for taking the pic, that honor belongs to braaaaaaaadley.
Cam looks great! Put a stronger sling on that sucker and test it again (if you dare...)
No blood. That's good! I guess you dodged a bullet (almost literally).
I don't see any spectra filaments. Too bad. I wonder what would have happened with a stronger sling?
Yep! Don't fret, we've all been there.
I think that monster would hold a tru... wait, make that TWO trucks!
That's so awesome!
Wow, he looks cool and solid. Either he has tiny hands or amazing technique!
Wow! Where's the rope?
I like this photo. It's almost monochromatic aside from the climber.
Wow, what a hottie!
Cool shot! I've got to get on that route next time I'm at the Gunks!
Beautiful looking line! Does it just go to the blobby thing at the top of the picture, or keep going?
I see jugs, slopers, and maybe a couple of pinches. But then I also see a very happy girl just having fun in the gym.
Wow! Where is that?
Yeah. The route is named Scarface. It's at Indian Creek.
This pic really is sweet. You captured a great moment! The route actually is in the routes DB, though it's hard to find. Here's a link: http://www.rockclimbing.com/routes/North_America/United_States/Utah/Moab/Indian_Creek/Scarface_wall/unnamed_14679.html
It's called Binou's Crack. And Allison's first time on it she had a lot more trouble. She was sure her leg was going to get stuck in there forever! You're right, this time she was relaxed and in control throughout.
Way to ruin an otherwise very nice shot.
It really is that much fun.
Cool poem, great pic!
Very strange photo. You appear to be fuzzily levitating in the middle of a chimney.
I think he's spotted Jenna's valley. Actually, he appears to have gotten lost there.
The expression on your face is priceless!
That looks very hard, and she appears to be entirely relaxed. Impressive!
Congrats! Yup, sure is a sweet tower.
Wait a minute, if she almost flashed it, where's all the gear?
I like it!
Looks like the thought of shoving that monster in the crack, with all that entails, is scaring the crap out of her.
Very cool pic. Kind of moody.
Looks like a cool climb. I like those plates.
She's not topless. You can clearly see the tie in the middle of her back. You can also clearly see the nice definition in her back muscles. Yay climbers!
Nice shot! That climb seems so improbable in person.
That route looks cool! But why submit it under "sport"? It sure looks like it's gear protected.
Nice shot! Let the ringlocks begin!
Yum. Makes me miss the gunks!
From one crack addict to another - that looks pretty sweet!
Oh, and nice send, Jen!
Yep, both ways are nice. And yeah, I think it's a decent pic. You know, you can fix the horizon in photoshop (or other cheaper tools).
Looks like fun!
Cool pic. Spooky, though.
Did you take the photo just as you fell off the edge?
Nice pic. Good look of concentration.
Cool pic! That actually is a nice demo!
I love that place! I'd go back to Les Calanques in a heartbeat.
Bizarre. You look so much like a girl I used to know. Same smile.
Holy crap! One of the best photos I've ever seen on rc.com!
I dunno, but wouldn't it work better to jam the crack?
Ha! Sweet melons!
Fantastic lighting and pose! And the nakedness of the climber is fun! Only thing I'd change is the gender (just a personal preference).
Love the framing in leaves. Beautiful photo!
The photo is a little strange, but the climb looks really sweet!
Are you tiny, or is the baguette enormous?
Too bad it's so blurry and shadowy. Really nice pic otherwise.
Looks fun! I like the matching headgear and top.
Great pic, Wes! It captures something essential about the feel of sport climbing. And the comment about "sharpness" is right on! Just too bad you can't see the guy's face better.
Sometimes OW isn't short for anything. It just means ow!.
Only kinda? That's harsh. This dude's topos are fantastic!
Very cool! Some kind of bizarre sandstone? Or columnar basalt? Where is this?
