I love the setting, with a playground in the background just makes this shot even cooler.

4 out of 5 stars nice to see a pic of a girl that doesn't focus on her boobs or ass

goes to show how much sex sells...

It was sort of a compliment. I think you have the right idea, but there is room for improvement. The only reason this photo is featured is because there are a lot of single, lonely climber guys that see a photo of a girl and, regardless of the quality/skill of the photo, climb, photographer or climber themselves, give it a 5 star rating. Yours is not the only photo that this has happened to.

Proof:
Take a look at this photo: http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos/Bouldering/Pinchin_a_nerve_109707.html

-Same kind of lighting, better climb. But there is a male climbing. Does it have any vote or rating?

Take a look at this photo: http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos/Sport/Dana_STD_108974.html

-Woman climbing a decent looking climb, wearing plenty of clothing, excellent angle, climbers face is well-lit and the timing is great. Hence the high rating.

My point is that Sex sells, but quality sells better.

All criticisms aside, I believe that you have an excellent idea and you could create some very intriguing photographs, especially with a done-up girl climbing in a red dress. Go to google and type in "Stone Nudes" for some ideas. Yes, they are selling sex, but the photography is amazing.

The fact that you brought a camera all this way is great. good work

woops. I meant to write "Two Cents" not "since"

Well. I'm not arguing with you. When you post your photos on rockclimbing.com you're asking for people to put their two since in, regardless if you agree or not. I would like to know, however, if you're not jumping on the "selling sex" bandwagon, what exactly are you trying to accomplish with these photos?

P.S. Soloing implies you are more than 2 feet off the ground

4 out of 5 stars I think the stick is a little distracting, but otherwise excellent photo. Makes me want to go climbing right now.

Nice job. A little out of focus, but excellent background. Good to see somebody else who uses half ropes. I love the deproach on that climb too! haha.

Excellent framing job. Nice work.
