Looks like a famous 5.6 in the Gunks. I wanna do it.
I can see the crux approaching--dyno for the drainpipe and hope for the best!!!
What a great picture. It looks like fantastic climbing there.
No, Thomas--He's hanging on the rope. He is merely grabbing the draw.
Great picture. Fortunately he looks a lot like Jocelyn.
Anyone ever see that picture of John Long on the "Kong" boulder at Black Mountain?
Those are EBs--probably why he fell!
That's a great problem and the seam to your right is even better.
Jay is obviously on his way to the dark side. Soon, like many of us, he will no longer even remember where his rope is.
And beer. You forgot to mention the beer, as an integral part of that day.
Thought you would want to know--I took good care of that bottle of Glenmorangie that you left at my house.
Seemed more like 5.9, hehe that's what the "+" means (sandbag). Well, JT does take some getting used to. Great route.
Great picture. I never led it, but followed Hidetaka Suzuki on it about 20 years ago--just after it was established.
kalcario, I'm afraid time marches on for us all, eh?
Looks to me more like she's eyeballing you, Bob. Fantastic crack/roof boulder problem in either case.
Nice picture Jay, except that you're tied into that rope and all.
Well you should have seen the attempt just before this one. I missed the blind move to where my right hand is--and went "floatin'" right to the crash pad. Haha.
Outstanding route for its grade. It certainly has a little bit of everything and is steep to boot.
Botched dyno? Clearly the guy needs to boulder more.
Hubba hubba. If I were single and as young as Jay.........hahahaha
Please its "Bob and he".....
I saw a guy dressed just like that bouldering in Flagstaff today.
Absolutely outstanding photo. I want to climb there now.
Looks like "Birdland" to me.
Elena is a shagadelic hottie, to paraphrase another RC.com letch. But, please don't tell Brent or Evelyn that I said that--or I will be in deep trouble.
Nice photo--brings back lots of old memories. For the historical record, the Fire was first imported to the US by Bachar and Graham in 1983, rather than 1981..
Not a very good picture. I can't even tell if Mike still has the pink streaks in his hair. Great climb though.
Yeah, he is waving his hair around for effect too.
We could tell you where it is--but then we would have to kill you.
Those are indeed the Manx boulders. My favorite problem goes up the left-hand side of the arete just behind the person in blue.
What the hell is he doing with his right hand?
Shouldn't have been a bouldering pic, though. That conflicts with tying the knot. Hahahaha.
You have to be French to layback a classic jam crack. Hahahaha.
Beautiful picture. I remember doing that same needles rappell off that route 22 years ago.
Hey padwarmer - Is this near Goat Rock then? Nice photo.
Nice pic Hillary. I know that guy. He doesn't wear that same helmet bouldering though.
Of course, the real fun comes after getting your right hand into that vertical crack.
You're just getting to the crux there, so what happened next? Haha.
You can tell its his first crack lead all right. Next time I bet he remembers the shirt and canvas pants. Oldskool climbers weren't so stupid afterall. Haha.
Photos of the Gunks from a distance are quite misleading. Its hard to believe that there is spectacular clean rock in there, isn't it?
First off, that is a great photo. My next observation is that (since I am about as flexible as a 2x4) I would rupture something if I tried to get into that position.
That can't be Ireland. The sun is shining.
Either you're really short--or that thing's tall. Nice photo.
Nice photo. So, what happened next, or is the guy gay?
Doesn't look too hard to me. What's the rope for?
I've done that thing a couple of times and it is a phenomenal climb. As suggested, perhaps the horizon should be leveled, which will show the route to be even steeper than shown in this picture. Great photo by the way.
Nice photo. That move looks like a dynamic layback--a technique developed by John Gill in the 1950s.
PTPP, your issue is what--that he isn't hanging off those bolts like an AIDS climber would?
Hey, I've done that thing. It was a really hot day in the middle of the summer--and I thought I was going to barf when I made it to the belay.
There is something very wrong about that picture--I just can't quite put my finger on it.
It would have been a great ass shot, but she was carrying entirely too much gear. Haha.
Nice lead Kelly. And juanjo--there are no bolts on that baby!!!
Helmet? Doesn't look like much loose rock there to me.
How did the rope get that tight? Haha.
Hey, that's the barking little rodent that tried to chew my right knee cap off!
It must be all the recent earthquake activity that has tilted the rock--and made it steeper than it used to be. Haha.
Collect the entire set. I have photo documentation of all the Samuelson carvings. If I can find them--I will post some more.
Near SNL, but not nearly as good.
Looks nice. It it also the only boulder problem in Indiana? Haha.
OK. That one is going into the calendar.
Doesn't look like much from a distance does it? Can you zoom in?
Well, no wonder I couldn't see any holds. Haha.
Bouldering on your birthday with your family and good friends, then grilling burgers outdoors and drinking BVB's scotch--it just doesn't get much better than that.
You're whining about that little gobie???
Boy, I sure remember doing that twenty some years ago. Great problem.
You need to transpose this left to right. Then it would be perfect.
1) That's not sizzle foot, which starts ten feet to the left in the vertical crack.
2) Why is the rope as tight as a piano wire?
Hey Hillary, the B2 problems that Bob Murray put up there in the 70s will still present a challenge for most folks.
You can't. He's still up there.
He's not soloing. The route climbs the inside corner to the climber's left--and then traverses right under the roof.
The horizon is fine. There is a river valley in between the foreground (which slopes to the right) and the background, which slopes to the left.
Adorable. The kid is OK too.
Yeah, the money pitch is coming up.
Hey Art, looking good there. That thing is hard.
How did the church tower get leaning over like that? Is that in Pisa? Haha.
Me in a harness? Slanderous, absolutely slanderous.
That's not creative footwork--that's cheating!!!111. HAHAHA.
Nice to see Elena climbing again. I hope her shoulder is finally OK.
Yeah, crop it. Only a real retard would actually do the L. Baskerville crack anyway. Haha.
In person, that problem muts be really "exciting." Haha.
That thing sucks. Your Binghamland pic was much better.
Yep, woodson 11c it is!!!
But, why is it called High Exposure? Hahahahaha.
Yes, but next weekend when I take you on the REAL North Mountain bouldering tour, what will you have to say?
If you chew through that rope you could be in trouble.
Jay's placing gear? Maybe he's not gay after all. Hahahahaha.
Hmmm....you look grainier than usual there. Haha.
That photo should be in the RC.com calendar--for sure!!!
The huge tic marks drawn to the already obvious holds are nice too--not.
And they said it wouldn't la........um, never mind.
What's with the big bolts right next to the crack that is being climbed? Haha.
So what? Rich always looks casual on serious s_it.
I was there spotting her Geek ass when this photo was taken. Oh, you said Greek......
"Now squeal like a pig."
"He's sure got a purty mouth."
Not me. Not there. Not ever. Hahahahahaha.
I'm having serious lycra envy--those tights are prettier than mine.
V0 or not--that's a great looking problem.
Why is it called Rainbow Wall?
OK, I'll go first...... Nice Ass.
That's a great route--and a very nice photo of it.
It is impossible to deny that Hillary is the Queen of V0. She OWNS them. Haha.
Of course, not getting to the lip would be substantially more embarrassing, wouldn't it?
That photo sucks!!!
I am glad that a couple of you were able to explain to BobD what a runout is. I'm sure he is less confused now. Hahahahahahahahaha.
That's also about the same height kalcario gets after clipping a dozen bolts or so, hanging on 5 of them and yelling "take" nine times.
I think I will print out this picture and show it to all the people who are constantly asking me what the hell I did to my hands. Haha. Nice pic.
Looks like the Right Side problem of Bob Williams infamy.
What's far more amazing is that she has kept you.
That must have been before he got really old.
V16 has better spray value.
Yeah, BobD has only been leading trad 5.13, bouldering B2 and establishing hundreds of new climbing routes for more than 30 years now. Who is rokshoxbkr19 anyway? Hahahaha.
Nice uh........., well er.........., picture, yeah, that's it.
Hey Jon, was it real cloudy that day or is the background just washed out? The scenery behind where Andy is looks really nice in photos, when it shows.
Looks like the "Microshield" problem at Bathtub Rocks above Beulah. I did the second ascent of this--nice problem too.
Another great photo. I sure wouldn't want to visit Indonesia right now though.
Well, I'm never going to argue with Aaron again.
This is a nice picture but would probably look better if rotated 90 degrees clockwise, IMO.
CCK, what a great climb.
Yeah, I'd give her a 9.
Obviously she wants to form a nice scar there, which can be adequately numbed only by fine scotch. hahaha.
I feel indirectly responsible for this you know.
Get over it, Ed. You are both out of prison now.
Great route--especially P2.
Yes. Lycra is the key to these types of climbs.
Looks like Les got his package stuck in mid-passage.
Jacks Canyon, eh? So its really, what, 5.10d?
Did you notice it right away?
I wouldn't go there--it looks too crowded.
A nice little warm-up problem. It only seemed hard because some joker put that tree in my chalk bag.
So, what happened already?
What's with the camera tilting thing--to make it look steep? Haha.
That photo is rated over 9? Come on, give me even two good reasons.
She IS bouldering.
Wyatt, I have this effect on most women--its simply a cross I must bear, I guess. I usually carry around a large stick to beat them away with. Actually this is common for most balding guys in their late 40s. Just wait, your time will probably come too. Haha.
Been there--done that. What a great photo of a great climb.
Short people sure do whine a lot.
I'm 48, retard. (That insult was just in case the previous one had worn off.)
Nice photo. What happened next?
Art, noooooobody puts gear there. Haha.
Stick with it Jules. Crack climbing technique is different, and usually something learned apart from bouldering.
The boulder problem six feet or so to my left is also a nice problem, but is quite a bit easier.
Why are his hands and feet jammed into a crack--and he's clipped into a big old bolt?
Huge exposure? Hilarious. Hahahahaha. I mean, it is a great route, but exposure is not what makes it so. Nice picture, by the way.
One of the very best finger cracks in Joshua Tree. Nice photo.
Great picture. It looks just like the basalt I learned to climb on.
I use similar training techniques myself.
Hey, I know a guy who used to teach math there.
Actually, the way the problem was originally done, the dyno goes to a huge jug--up and slightly right, just below the top of the rock. I like the picture, though.
That's a nice problem. The key is to get your right foot up to just about the same level as where your left is, before reaching up.
Right place at the right time--great photo there.
I sure hope I can boulder that hard--when I'm as old as that guy.
Looks like Michael lost his rope again. He ought to be more careful with where he leaves his things.
Nice. The best 5.6 on the planet, for sure.
This photo does Bob a great injustice--it looks just like him.
I was wondering where my bottle of cask strength Macallan went.
Crack climb all the way, eh? What about that 50 or so feet of friction climbing past that one bolt????
Interesting how the camera is tilted, to try and make the climb look steep. Haha.
Yes. It is a two pitch climb, althought these days weakmos like wyatttearp probably bail after the first well protected pitch.
Yep, that's a "10" alright.
Anyone can have a bad hair day, asshole. Haha.
That pic is a "10" IMO.
Weird picture--I like it though.
What the hell are you looking at? That's not where the route goes. Haha.
What's a sportard like you doing with all that gear? Haha. Nice picture.
I seem to remember only doing about one jam on that thing. After that, you just reach all the way through the crack to the top side of the rock. Nice route though--and a good picture of it.
Not really, because the rope will run right up through the crack itself.
FYI, its not supposed to look like that.
By the way the best link-up in that part of the cliff is Gaston, Strictly, Shockley's.
Been there--done that. What's with the ghey rope thing anyway?
Nice, Aaron. I hope the unit you fell on was Jon's. Haha.
Irene's is a great route, probably my favorite in the Tetons. Are you sure you found the right start? It is pretty hard to get lost once you are on the route.
You should never hump a watermelon in anger.
Nice pic, Kelly--in spite of Bob. Had you considered photoshopping him out? Hahahahaha.
Beautiful. I'd love to climb there some day.
Excellent. When I lead "Sente" in the Gunks and other retro-bolted routes, I also skipped the superfluous fixed gear.
Nice photo. I actually like this one better than the other wider shot, because I can see both the climber and the detail of the rock better.
Amazing photo, in fact it is one of my personal favorites of all the pics I have viewed on the site.
Does he miss very often?
Too bad he didn't make it.
Looks like the Unabunger allright.
Is that landing anywhere near as bad as it looks?
Is there a glacier up higher?
I think this was taken before you were born.
Hey Joe, is that what a real climber told you?
Probably my favorite boulder problem at Joshua Tree. It's not in HVCG though, it's in the real Hidden Valley area.
I'd much rather look at a pic of Jocelyn up there. Haha.
I have done a few more unpleasant climbs in my life, but none come to mind right now.
That's a weird looking piece of rock for Black Mountain.
Who's the old looking guy in the pic?
Believe me, BVB's face out of focus is a good thing.
There is also a nice boulder problem up the face--just to the right of the crack.
I would have rated this higher if she was sporting the orange spaghetti straps.
Well, you must have liked it--or you would have quit falling.
Perhaps the best picture I have ever seen here.
Cool. You guys will have to show this to me.
Been there--done that. Nice photo.
I seem to be a bad influence on young women.
I knew she had it bagged.
That's true in bouldering grades as well.
Nice spot Bob. Haha. If you add the ages of those two guys together it results in a number > 100.
Who's the old guy looking at Kelly's ass?
Kelly's good looking--that's Bob allright.
Oh, I suppose when I'm your age that might seem like a small hold.
That's a bucket. I rest and chalk-up on holds like that.
Curt Loves Ugly? WTF?
Amazing picture, Bob. The streaks really make this an attractive problem.
I sent that in '92.
Could be; he does look pretty shaky there.
Nice pic; brings back fond memories for me.
Yes, if you think 5.10b is hard.
You mean "my sons and me." Haha.
As it should be; you fall on a fucking V0 and you deserve to die.
Yeah, it's not steep--just a horizontal traverse, isn't it?
Actually, it ends on top. He did end up on top, right?
Did Kole have a sex-change operation?
With slightly shorter dresses, this pic could be decent.
Glad that third eye is now gone.....
Frogs should not try to climb trad.
How did his feet not get wet?
You are indeed the queen of V0. Haha.
Or, I suppose, without a mat......
Absolutely amazing pic.
Well, that's simple enough--just don't fall.
That guy is incredibly talented and good looking as well.
It's a blind, technical dyno to a horn that is just above the highest chalk you can see. Probably about as difficult as the "Murray Lunge" at Hueco.
Good thing you had a pad and a spotter on that bad boy. Haha.
The roof is 5.9 or so--the only 5.10 move on that route is on the face, getting up to the roof. Good picture though.
That was probably homo-joe; he's given a "1" to all my pics.
Class. You either have it, or you don't.
Really nice pic. I gave it a 9.
Who's the old fart?
Evil. She's sure as hell thinking up something pure evil.
Why? Were you expecting lycra?
Pussay. I hope that you at least finished the problem and saved yourself from total humiliation. Haha.
I like it too, especially the long horizontal shadows.
I like that picture. However (hint) if you do "WR" on a hot day or after a recent rain, you won't think the crux is the part just above where you are in the photo.
Nice photoshop job.
That's my favorite problem at the Kraft boulders. Great picture of it, from an unusual perspective.
I suspect this pic may have been better without all the photoshopping.
I've bouldered with that guy. He's 35 and entitled to wear socks in his climbing shoes if he wants to.
Nice pic. Did you do the direct start?
Beautiful image of what Gunks climbing is all about.
pffft. It's only B1 if you do it that way. Haha.
Hopefully, you guess human gender a bit better, Phil. Haha.
Hey................that's my dog.
Nice pic Hillary, it's almost got that Epperson-esque light thing going.
The right variation is B1, this (left) one is B2 I think.
I can only hope to boulder that hard when I reach that age. Haha.
Australian Cattle Dogs rule....even if they are 13 years old.
Are you sure that's not just one dog, doing a "U" turn?
Not bad at all, for an old fart. Haha.
That's an outstanding picture. The background sky is surreal.
Naw, B2 starts at lowly V8 or so.
You'd breathe heavy too if you ever met his girlfriend.
Is that a still from a K-Y commercial?
Been there--done that.
Proud send. Haha.
Malice is right behind Mushroom Boulder. Is that where this was taken?
Hey, either you're going a bit gray there, Tim--or you got some of that chalk in your hair. Haha.
A2 rupture waiting to happen.
pfffft. 5.10b tops.
My Heeler will be 13 years old in May.
I'm pretty sure this has been led without a helmet. Those pics are somewhat superior.
Great drawing Dave. I hope you make it back down to AZ soon.
You're not supposed to fall off that problem.
Nice. That's the first V9 I did at Hueco.
Could you back-up a Toy Poodle with a Standard one in the same manner?
What would a picture of him "low" on the route look like? Haha.
"great trad shot in the Gunks. This is a classic climb. Don't worry about the helmet issue. Curt insist he only climbs below competent climbers who don't drop gear or toss small rocks off the cliffs edge. Most of us aren't that fortunate even if we have as little to protect :)"
Whatever. If you prefer pics of women in burkas, that's fine with me.
What kind of rifle did you use--and did one shot do it?
Nice looking warm-up. Is there any real bouldering there?
Where's the guitar--and why are you wearing shoes? Haha.
No way that conservative dark blue lycra trumps mine. Haha. Nooooo way.
The BVB lrc is now mine. Haha.
Looks like the climber's been put "on hold."
No, it's an unnamed problem at the "gym" bouldering area.
I gave it a 10--what a pic.
How did that gear get placed above you like that?
It's "Saturday Night Live" not "Fever" and if you do it right--you don't have to take that swing. Nice photo though.
Why are you bouldering in the rain?
It's a really nice pic of a mediocre boulder problem.
It's a nice picture. I think it would be a bit better if Dragonfly stood out a little better from the cliff band behind it though.
Cool 5.7, eh?
I think that might be the first V8 I did at Hueco. Great pic. I gave it a 10.
That's a great picture. I tried to get up there last Sunday, but the road was still closed. You must have gone up there pretty late in the day.
Yeah, that's certainly not the easiest way to do that route. It makes for a really nice photo though. I did do it once that way--in about a 40mph wind. I thought it felt more secure than doing the balancy stand-up move onto the ledge.
Doing it the "hard way" except for all the pads, of course.
Did you do the second pitch--or pussy out and rap?
Looks more like a photo from Brokeback Mountain.
The tape is for the top-out--not for the roof part.
Muppet buttshots4lyfe. Haha.
The easy way doesn't use either of the two hand placements shown in the photo. There is a really good L-hand lock further back in the crack, from which a really good R-hand lock can be reached that is farther towards the camera than the one shown in the photo is--if that makes any sense, which it probably doesn't. Suffice to say that I normally reach past both of the hand holds being used by the climber in that photo.
Bob, you sure that's Jocelyn. Doesn't she normally carry a bigger rack?
That's probably my favorite piece of rock at Woodson.
I suppose it gets harder when your second foot leaves the ground, eh?
I have unskilled, low wage people do it for me. Why, do you need a job?
Why would anyone do that? Haha.
more like jabba the hut.
Much harder than what's left of les.
Did he make it to the crux? Haha.
Pffffft, I rest and chalk-up on jugs like those.
"Crap Arete" sucks--no matter how you start it.
"That has been one of my favorite climbing shots for years. It looks like he's climbing a bent-over, granite buttocks."
Now you know what he's got both hands up inside of.
If you mean "Tom" rather than "Tim," the answer is yes.
Damn, Manny--that looks nice.
Pffft. BVB and I sent that thing in'84.
Yeah--those are jugs. I chalk-up and rest on holds like that.
5.9 tops. pfffft.
5.4 is in style anywhere.
I don't remember getting that far off the ground.
Is that Kosher? It looks like fun.
Those aren't called shoulders.
The way the arrow points.
Nice pic of a great problem.
Hillary, I thought that was you. Haha.
Nice pic--I've seen it look just like that many times.
Nice toss for the choss--what happened next?
Cool--just like peering down an elevator shaft.
Nice pic. I first did that in 1981. It's gotten a little harder over the years because the rock has become more polished--and the ground below it has eroded some.
I now see why bouldering is considered stupid by some--and I'm a boulderer.
speaking of hidden gems....
Watch out for that next step......
Nice pic. Do people these days use a rope for that?
5.8 never looked so good.
That's what the pad's are for, Tim. Hahahaha.
I've seen so many beautiful pictures of this place that I've got to go there.
No, we all haven't.
"Off Camber" - oldskool B1
One of the best climbs of its grade at JT, for sure--the others being "Figures on a Landscape" and "Bird of Fire."
No. It's not sonso, fer fux sake.
Great picture--I love that problem.
Way to go, Rusty.
I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit that after 30 years of climbing in the Gunks, I haven't yet done Shockley's in this most traditional style.
That's a really great photo, Phil. It hurts my tendons just to look at that route.
Best 5.6 on the planet--for sure...
Nice pic. I would have probably placed more gear, though.
Noah's Ark is 5.5 and you certainly shouldn't be using a rope. Haha.
The top out is fun--especially when it's wet, like the first time I did it. You don't have to worry much about the rock though--I've never heard of anyone falling on it in 30 years.
Great problem--probably my favorite at the Kraft boulders.
Dude, if you're going to tilt the camera that much to make the climber look strong, you probably don't want a large body of water in the background.
That thing looks great.
Yes, it looks a lot like the Gunks--nice pic.
Sorry. I should have called these "stacked nuts" to really get your interest.
Nice pic--as far as failure goes.
Yes--it's actually 5.7
Yeah, I've only done that route a couple dozen times, dipshit.
It's a great picture. However, that route was rated 5.7 when it was first established--and that's still what it should be rated, in my opinion. Similarly, SW corner is actually a 5.6 climb.
Very cool. Something about the clouds in the background make this look about 20 pitches off the ground.
Of course he's off route--that's how you make 5.7 look hard.
Did that hurt much?
Well, you certainly have the ability to make 5.7 look hard.
Nic pic. I would also rotate it 90 degrees CCW or CW.
Nice pic. The other finish is much better, though.
When you do "Bonnie's," be sure to finish out right--on the direct finish. It's amazing.
Boy, that sure looks how I remember it from 25 years ago. The direct finish is the only way to go. Nice pic of a fantastic route.
Perhaps the best V0 in Arizona. Nice pic.
Very cool picture.
Who's the other guy?
It's Garden of the Gods--the rock is vertical mud.
He must be French.
That's a classic "Woodson 11c" all right...
What--no suspenders? Haha.
Which sister, the theater director or the pole dancer?
Nice pic--my Whillans was orange.
That's the down climb.
I so want to go there...
Wow, that's one of the best pics I've ever seen on this site.
Very nice pic, Manny.
Nice looking boulder, where is it?
I never managed to get up that thing. I'll buy you a beer if you show me the beta.
Nice pic. Next time do the much better finishing pitch.
Well, I've done it both ways and the regular finish doesn't exactly suck either.
Looks like a good warm-up. Nice pic, too.
Come and find out.
It's rated 5.11b. It's probably been hiked in flip-flops.
Style. You either have it, or you don't.
Is the dog named "Spot?"
Do they recognize "spiritual crimes" in KY?
Hmmm. Is she working "down" or "across?"
Your feet don't go above your knees? Probably why you're a 5.4 climber.
They must have slid down.
Are you serious? 5 stars for that? Without a climber in the picture it could be a photo of a crack in my driveway.
Yep. Yet another photo where someone mistakenly thinks they absolutely must tilt the camera to make the climb appear steeper than it really is. Too bad and it ruined an otherwise nice pic.
Nice try, but water in a lake must be perfectly horizontal.
I like how he thinks this is a photo of the Amazon River, too.
Aren't you supposed to be holding onto the rock?
By the way, do you and camhead trade that red shirt back and forth, for pics?
I like the lighting on this pic. Very nice.
Gunks climbing--at its best.
Or, you could just tip it back even more than it already is--and make it look like a roof.
It's easy, you simply don't exaggerate the angle of the climb by tipping the camera. I really can't single this pic out, though, as this seems like a fairly well accepted practice these days.
It must be that same funny Canadian gravity that makes the carabiner and chalk bag on the climber get pulled into the rock too.
Nice pic--I doubt anyone would have noticed the shorts, absent the posted reference.
Why would anybody be falling on 11c?
Hey evanwish and scm007, In the spirit of Christmas and Good Will among men, I suppose there's nothing wrong with being a weakmo.
I like climbing pr0n.
Shut up Jack. Hey Camhead--is this as hard as Kansas City?
OK erick, I'm a comedian and you're a liar.
Yeah, funny how that works.
It's OK--she's married to a good guy.
Well, that looks like fun. Not.
Nobody falls on 10c do they? I mean, Jesus, that's just sad.
Trust me, NOBODY is really looking at the font.
1984 or 85 looks about right, with the first generation Fires and all.
In the 80's
Hey, looka dat white boy humpin da rock.
I was going to make some smart assed comment about how only a masochistic dumb-ass would do a climb like that--but then realized that I've actually done it.
Sure you did. Enjoy puberty--you're only young once.
Great pic, Manny.
Using a rope on that is cheating.
At First I thought it was an old shot of Hugh Herr.
Nice pic--looks like the standard rappel off Headstone Rock.
Very nice pic, Manny.
Well, I've done that rappel a few times.
Whatever it is, it obviously disoriented him. The much better finish goes the other way. Heh.
Sheesh, that guy's everywhere...
I don't think that's what he meant at all...
Looks like the result of a warm up problem at Hueco.
The picture must be upside down. Heh.
Correction: most over-hyped mediocre boulder problem ever, excellent photo.
Very nice pic
You're not supposed to use a rope for that thing. Heh.
Catch and release? Nice pic.
Great climb. Unfortunately, I agree that the angle of the route has been purposefully and unnecessarily altered. That actually detracts from the quality of the photo.
Sorry, but it's completely unnecessary to hype the camera angle to make a great climb look artificially steeper--that's just BS.
One of the better Paradise Forks pics I can recall seeing. It would be even better if a rope wasn't hanging down to the right of the climber.
Looks to me like she was well past the crux. Nice pic though...
Climbing Barbie. A nice addition to the collection.
