Nice rope management, Shaggy.

That dude sure has a long... reach.

View this Photo
Nice. I'm guessing the white stuff is not chalk?

View this Photo
She's not looking at the bolt, btw. It's 6 or 8ft to the side and she's looking slightly up and over, probably for some kind of hold, any kind of hold. Nice angle. I get kind of tired of the butt shots or directly overhead shots.

S'pose the Vikings or Picts or Goths ever sieged a tower this way? Of course, they had no Stealth rubber.

View this Photo
Nice. I thought it was Eldo at first.

View this Photo
If he's not directly over the bolt but off to the side, I'd call it airtime, as he's gonna swing. And the colors are beautiful. Who's your art director?

View this Photo
Are those camels or rocks in the BG? Beautiful shot. Go, Kiwis.

View this Photo
I see where your screen name comes from now. Nice shot.

View this Photo
Nice. But bolts every six feet? Is that legal?

View this Photo
Yeah, who cares about his skin as long as you got the shot? (Which is very nice, btw).

View this Photo
3 pieces in 10 feet? Beautiful shot and setting, tho.

View this Photo
I think I just hurt my crux.

(I, too clicked for the comments and was surprised at how few there are. Thought I'd help out.)

View this Photo
I've got to ask: how'd you descend? Beautiful shot and nice description, too, btw.

View this Photo
That may be the first vertical shot of El Cap I've ever seen that shows how honkin' tall that rock is.

Val di Mello gives you Wiiiiings!

The Flying Tomato climbs, too?

View this Photo
So how often does JTree get snow? Provides a neat little effect in the picture.

View this Photo
Nice. WHERE IS THIS???

View this Photo
A classic. The corner to the right (SE?) is an even better lead. Our day looked like this, but was about 60. Perfect!

"You can jump for joy, but you gotta land sometime."

Also "Hightops are hip."

Here in America, they're called climbing shoes. Actually, this pic just shows one, the right one.

View this Photo
WHAT is that anchor?

View this Photo
Nice shot. I like the look of focus and concentration on the belayer.

View this Photo
"Fell off"? Can you 'splain? And which grey part?

View this Photo
Aw c'mon. Look how close that next clip is. It's a cakewalk. ;-)

View this Photo
Does that count as one route, or two?

View this Photo
Well, 2/3 of the view, at least.

View this Photo
Very cool. How high is that/how many pitches? And what kind of rock?

View this Photo
Glen and me.
I did Sundial in October. Fun climb. My partner was actually hit by an apple thrown off the top by a touron.

View this Photo
Beautiful. How much PS did you do? And was it much of a long exposure? Some blur in the rapids would be nice. (This from someone who knows zip about photography.) But to repeat, simply beautiful.

View this Photo
Isn't this the only true multi-pitch in Arkansas? A beautiful rock, one I've driven by many times but haven't tackled yet.

View this Photo
Congratulations. Rock beats plastic any day of the week.

I'm picturing her fully clothed right now.

View this Photo
I'm not flaming him. I'm flaming what the photo eds choose to put on the front page. This shows A) a lack of discretion and B) anything can get approved/posted.

View this Photo
How/Why do these photos end up on the front page? (No offense, dude, but I like climbing pics better than a mug shot of someone I don't know.)

View this Photo
I'm so sorry your illness affected your fashion sense. (black socks with shorts? How gauche.)

View this Photo
Maybe a haunch shot. Definitely not a butt shot. I love that he looks so casual about it all.

View this Photo
Congrats. Now teach her to sling pro.

View this Photo
Oooh! Don't grab those power lines!

View this Photo
Congratulations. "Second lead," but "first time clipping"??? Howzat?

View this Photo
Took me a while to find the climber. Must be some kind of gecko-man mutation.

View this Photo
My impression of Greece has changed based on your photos. Thanks! (I've always had a good impression of Greece-- just thought it was all see and islands amnd goats.)

View this Photo
Self-belay AND self-photography? Busy man.

View this Photo
So crack bolting is legal in Brazil?

Lots of cool Brazilian cilmbing pics lately. I never knew they had so much stone.

View this Photo
Zevon climbs???

View this Photo
Good response, cole22.
I asked why some photo was on the front page and some dipstick told me to pipe down, it's just the most recently-approved shots. Obviously not correct.

View this Photo
It's a very fit girl standing on a ledge, folks.

View this Photo
Is the rock granite? I wasn't familiar with Traversella until you started posting these great photos. Thanks!

View this Photo
The pink icechest, the boots-n-seersucker-shorts look... very butch.

View this Photo
Forget Iraq! I want this picture removed immediately so that my gender-neutral sensibilities aren't offended.

View this Photo
Now, girls...

View this Photo
c.caio, how old is the climber? He's my new hero!

View this Photo
I like the blur. The climber's mostly focused. It's not art, but a nice shot.

View this Photo
Hmmm.... Climb or swim? Climb or swim? Tough choice. Lucky dude.

View this Photo
Does that look say "I need more crash pads"?
Nice shot.

View this Photo
I wanted to go to Traversella even before this shot, so there.
Prepare for the onslaught of comments from she-climbers.

View this Photo
Post it smaller.

View this Photo
What a great role reversal: the "youngsters" getting the oldsters out. Rock on.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars That's poster-worthy. When was it taken?

View this Photo
You look like a girl.

OK, I'm just jealous of the guns. Nice shot.

View this Photo
Where is this? It's beautiful.

View this Photo
No jokes here, bitte. They're German.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Nice. I like that route, even though I always barndoor on it. When was this shot taken, btw?

View this Photo
I broke a helmet-size piece off this route and it landed smack where my belayer was standing 15 seconds earlier. Still a nice route, with a great view of the Ranch.

View this Photo
All that AND he gets to climb brick walls in Iraq. Aaron's a lucky guy.

View this Photo
1 out of 5 stars Cool shot. From the angle of the ground on the right, it looks like he's maybe 8-10' off the deck, yes?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Can't wait to see what his next move is gonna be.

View this Photo
Where's Potter?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Is the shooter the belayer, too? Really, really nice work there.

View this Photo
Majid, that's a dude.

View this Photo
Dude's got your back.

View this Photo
You got that in a groundfall?

View this Photo
XYZ?

View this Photo
Some scale would be nice... how tall are the faces?

View this Photo
You're a brave man to post that here. And a lucky one, too. Congratulations.

View this Photo
He's definitely getting the better end of the deal.
Many happy years to you both.

View this Photo
At first, I thought "Europe?" "Australia?" Beautiful shot and location. What kind of rock is that?

View this Photo
Redpoint or pinkpoint? (Anybody else call clipping draws already in place a pinkpoint?) Either way, nice shot and nice move.

View this Photo
Snow and short sleeves. Gotta love it.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Yeah, good lighting, great composition, cool angle and interesting subject matter don't do it for me either.

View this Photo
Ummm... hey, there's a wolf about to get your stuff.

View this Photo
That's not a cell phone on your harness, is it?

View this Photo
He's wearing a helmet. He'll be fine.

View this Photo
Couldn't just take the stairs, huh?

View this Photo
Carrot Top climbs?

View this Photo
So is that the name of the problem, or is SHE Janet?

Funk.

Nice story. My 6 yr old and I did home camping the other night, but for a different reason-- to be under that beautiful full moon. Hope the power comes back on soon.

View this Photo
Beautiful. Simple. Strong. Colorful. I like it.

View this Photo
Nah, keep it on. And do a Jolly Roger next. Those always make me feel... special.

View this Photo
No. They don't. Those windows are pretty tiny, you know.

Looks kinda like "Witness the Fitness," Sharma's Arkansas roof problem.

View this Photo
Not gay, Australian.

View this Photo
Beautiful. Wait, wha?

View this Photo
He's a lucky guy. Now go climb something (outside, I mean).

View this Photo
Made me snort.

View this Photo
Is he wearing a wife beater?

View this Photo
Black pants (in the middle) looks about 8 ft tall (optical illusion).

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Oh. Wow.
Nice line, nice shot. BW shots rock.

One word: Chiggers.

Hey, I just went there last week. Nice little park.

View this Photo
I just hope that leg belongs to a dude.

View this Photo
Paella?

View this Photo
Decent shot. How was the descent?

View this Photo
Finally, a solution to pesky crag dogs.

View this Photo
It's to the left.

View this Photo
That had to cost you a lot.

View this Photo
Thanks for not showing the hip smash ;-)

View this Photo
You should smile more often in your photos. (Nice photos, btw.)

Deproach-- My new word of the week.

Does Child Welfare block RC.com? 'Cause they're gonna love this. ;-)

View this Photo
RC.Com: the new Match.com?

What's that, about a 20 liter pack?

View this Photo
From a non-ice climber: is that whole thing frozen water? Whoa.

Love the sign next door: "I'm not leaving till we meet."

Mal's got competition.

Slacker, epoch, are you guys French or something?

View this Photo
Has to be the first shot of climbing in Egypt I've seen. Right on for posting up!

View this Photo
I was wondering the same thing (about the CItibank spot). The finally shot one that looks real.

View this Photo
So how does she descend? Are there anchors? Slings?

View this Photo
In the TV spot, she stands up on top of a small column-- that's what I was wondering about. Didn't see any slings or bolts.

View this Photo
Also, FWIW, she's got a close up (interior) in the commercial. I was glad to see that-- instead of just a long shot of anonymous climber on a rock somewhere.

View this Photo
***** I just like the idea of a "one of the bad bolts I've clipped" collection of photos.

View this Photo
Correct-- Squirrel Deck. My bad.

View this Photo
Is it actually occupied?

View this Photo
He's not wearing jorts? Poseur.

View this Photo
This is nice to look at. NicoleRenee seems like a nice girl. I realize for some, that's hard to deal with. If so, just move on. NBD. (Also, if you click refresh, it will go away. So don't panic.)

Cool. Nice to see climbing in Saudi Arabia. Makes me want to know-- sport or trad? What kind of stone? Is the area very developed/are there more routes? How's the local climbing scene?
