This pic is gonna give me some bad dreams.
Don't forget the checkered lyrca tights...yeah baby!
Kudos to your courage (to post this pic). That shirt screams "Kajagoogoo".
Despite cutting off part of the pad I like the composition and the angle. This pic could use some darkening and contrast.
Looks like some sharp texture. Gotta get down there to E-Rock sometime.
Nice shot. I'd hate to miss that first clip.
Clouds for balance?!!!! Cheater!! jk
It's a 5.9 trad or TR, no bolts. The rope is in the wrong position to be on toprope. Run it out!!!
It looks like it has recessed lighting under the first overhang. Nice.
Beautiful shot. Must have been an early start.
Looks like "Z". Awkward and fun route.
Or maybe ithe rope is running slightly up to a bolt on the climber's left. There does appear to be chalk/tic marks to her left.
He's actually from Nebraska. Jameson, where've you been hiding that badass pad? LOL!!
Ha! When he crashes he really crashes.
The douge forgot to velcro his right shoe.
Grrrrrrrr!!! Nice pic.
Looks fun. Does it start from an undercling?
It fingertips at the bottom, rattly fingers at the top and painful as hell. I've aid-soloed it but a free first ascent still awaits.
I did both of those routes on my first trip to J-Tree a few months ago, fun stuff. Too bad they're not taller. Nice composure.
Stout lines indeed!!!
There's more than one cow in that pic. How many can you find?
sic? Did you mean sick? His left hand is cropped.
Where's his beer?
Cold crimps, that's gotta sting a little.
Do you mean little holds except for that massive one you're resting on?
I love how anal some people are about grammar errors and spelling mistakes.....going on long tirades about what people write blah blah blah. Cool picture.
Louie who? Just curious.
I like this pic. His left hand looks pretty solid as if this might be more of a deadpoint rather than a dyno. Is it an "all points off" throw?
You should tag the photo to a location. Looks like fun.
Are you punching yourself?!!! WTF?!!!
Plenty of colors to choose from but only one size......painful.
I remember those crimps......so small.
Damn, that big flake in the center looks......um, flakey!
Holy exploding pebble choss!!!! I'd be nervous about bolting that. Is it solid?
Looks sweet. Is the pic cropped? It'd be nice to see his whole left foot.
an excellent butt shot. beautiful looking rock.
I gave you 5 stars to counteract overlord's obligatory 2 star rating. ;)
I can't be 100% certain by your pics but that boulder looks like one that my friends and I enjoyed several years ago. Here's a pic from a different angle. http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos/Misc/Blue_Mounds_bouldering_53782.html If I recall correctly we did 3 straight up problems, butt scraping traverses in both directions under the slabby part before going up, and several eliminates up the slab face including one-handed variations (scary!!). That was in 2005.....good times.
Is this boulder real close to the Quarry? Is it the same boulder as this pic shows? http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos/Misc/Jake_starting_the_right_side_53784.html Some fun problems on that one, too bad there's not more like it at Blue Mounds.
You must've topped out before the photographer could take the picture. ;) Coud you link a location to your pic?
The pic was taken from a spot down and a little left of the start. The route is dead vertical.
We missed you there, it was a good weekend. I wish the pic would've been a little brighter but thanks for the compliment
I thought it was a Moosejaw ad.
Why is this still on the front page?
You should've posted a video of that.
Ouch Tyler. I didn't know someone had gotten pics of the fall.
Reminds me of Turning Point on Flagstaff.
No no no!
Ouch. So how exactly did you end with the gash?
Looks fun and hard.
What can I say that hasn't already been said? I'm swooning in a confusing state of turgidity.
Looks fun. Does the slab go?
I have a couple of mrpotter's titties....they're fun!
Nice, I like the effect.
With photography skills like hers I wouldn't have felt safe either.
zwilia1, it's a fun climb but the route isn't really that steep. Here's another pic.
Now that's classy with a capital K
Pulley Mammoth 5.11d, The Gym section of Shelf Road, Colorado. I tried to link it to the database but obviously it didn't work.
Nothing a little duct tape won't fix.
Thanks Tyler. You should give it a go next time you're out at Shelf. There's a lot of nice tall routes in this area.
Sweet looking problem! Maybe it's my work monitor but the pic looks a little dark.
I completely agree although the rock on this route and some of the others on Kindergarten Rock's east side are surprisingly solid...I think Josh only broke off 4 or 5 pieces on this climb.
Just kidding, he didn't pull anything off. This climb (and area) has pretty solid rock compared to a lot of other areas in Garden of the Gods....or Garden of the Choss as I like to call it.
That is "No Go Crack" (5.12b), toproped most of the time but is actually leadable (tricky gear in the flare). It's the hardest established route at Blue Mounds. About 6 feet left of that line is a fun 10ish route called "Avoiding the Bat".
Tyler, are you stalking the Douge?
No kidding Curt! I heard that Bob's parents invented diapers with built-in suspenders.
It has a "vintage" look to it that I like, too bad it's out of focus.
5.10ish, Charlie Fowler didn't bother with a,b,c,d designations most of the time. Perfect hands for my friend, tight hands for me.
Good point. Red and gold camalots and one green. My crack technique sucks, the thinner, lower half of this climb dominated me.
The original was overexposed by probably 3 or 4 stops (my mistake). I shoot 99% in RAW but even after tinkering with the original I couldn't produce a good color version.
I agree, I thought the vertical and upper section were more difficult. I flailed a bit on this, my friend in the pic made it look much easier.
Explain to me what's great about this pic?
The shade/discoloring of the right arm is distracting.
Nice job Wes! FP=Front Page.
That shallow scoop on the right side looks hard (and fun). Is it an established problem? Grade?
Wilderness Park in southeast Lincoln, Nebraska. 22 feet tall, thin fingers to start, rattly fingers (crux) at the top. Here's another perspective.
The system works yet again!
So the rumors are troo!
Kwality with a kapital "K"
Very cool. Keep the fire burining!
No HDR, just cooked a bit (maybe too much) with Lightroom 3.
My wife is a college professor so I got it with the "educational discount." It's my first version (no upgrade) of Lightroom and since installing it I haven't touched my Canon DPP, GIMP or PSE6. Unless you're doing major tweaking with layers I don't think you need any other post-processing software. It's that good.
I like it!!
Thanks Ed. My original photo doesn't have the foot cropped. I posted this version by accident. I might delete this one and resubmit.
Thanks. It was a lot of fun watching him on his onsight attempt. I currently use a Canon 1Ds II.
No HDR, just post-processing in Lightroom 3. Artificial ND filters plus a few other tweaks.
17-40L at 17mm, f/7.1, 1/640 sec., ISO 400 for some silly reason.
Glory jugs above the roof. Copy/paste the link below to see a pic of his first attempt to clip.
