Nice rope management, Shaggy.
That dude sure has a long... reach.
Nice. I'm guessing the white stuff is not chalk?
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.
Nice. I thought it was Eldo at first.
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?
Are those camels or rocks in the BG? Beautiful shot. Go, Kiwis.
I see where your screen name comes from now. Nice shot.
Nice. But bolts every six feet? Is that legal?
Yeah, who cares about his skin as long as you got the shot? (Which is very nice, btw).
3 pieces in 10 feet? Beautiful shot and setting, tho.
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.)
I've got to ask: how'd you descend? Beautiful shot and nice description, too, btw.
That may be the first vertical shot of El Cap I've ever seen that shows how honkin' tall that rock is.
Spotter: "Yah, I gotcha."
Val di Mello gives you Wiiiiings!
The Flying Tomato climbs, too?
So how often does JTree get snow? Provides a neat little effect in the picture.
Nice. WHERE IS THIS???
A classic. The corner to the right (SE?) is an even better lead. Our day looked like this, but was about 60º. 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.
WHAT is that anchor?
Nice shot. I like the look of focus and concentration on the belayer.
"Fell off"? Can you 'splain? And which grey part?
Aw c'mon. Look how close that next clip is. It's a cakewalk. ;-)
Does that count as one route, or two?
Well, 2/3 of the view, at least.
Very cool. How high is that/how many pitches? And what kind of rock?
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.
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.
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.
Congratulations. Rock beats plastic any day of the week.
I'm picturing her fully clothed right now.
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.
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.)
I'm so sorry your illness affected your fashion sense. (black socks with shorts? How gauche.)
Maybe a haunch shot. Definitely not a butt shot. I love that he looks so casual about it all.
Congrats. Now teach her to sling pro.
Oooh! Don't grab those power lines!
Congratulations. "Second lead," but "first time clipping"??? Howzat?
Took me a while to find the climber. Must be some kind of gecko-man mutation.
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.)
Self-belay AND self-photography? Busy man.
So crack bolting is legal in Brazil?
Lots of cool Brazilian cilmbing pics lately. I never knew they had so much stone.
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.
It's a very fit girl standing on a ledge, folks.
Is the rock granite? I wasn't familiar with Traversella until you started posting these great photos. Thanks!
The pink icechest, the boots-n-seersucker-shorts look... very butch.
Forget Iraq! I want this picture removed immediately so that my gender-neutral sensibilities aren't offended.
c.caio, how old is the climber? He's my new hero!
I like the blur. The climber's mostly focused. It's not art, but a nice shot.
Hmmm.... Climb or swim? Climb or swim? Tough choice. Lucky dude.
Does that look say "I need more crash pads"?
I wanted to go to Traversella even before this shot, so there.
Prepare for the onslaught of comments from she-climbers.
Post it smaller.
What a great role reversal: the "youngsters" getting the oldsters out. Rock on.
That's poster-worthy. When was it taken?
You look like a girl.
OK, I'm just jealous of the guns. Nice shot.
Where is this? It's beautiful.
No jokes here, bitte. They're German.
Nice. I like that route, even though I always barndoor on it. When was this shot taken, btw?
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.
All that AND he gets to climb brick walls in Iraq. Aaron's a lucky guy.
Cool shot. From the angle of the ground on the right, it looks like he's maybe 8-10' off the deck, yes?
Can't wait to see what his next move is gonna be.
Is the shooter the belayer, too? Really, really nice work there.
Majid, that's a dude.
Dude's got your back.
You got that in a groundfall?
Some scale would be nice... how tall are the faces?
You're a brave man to post that here. And a lucky one, too. Congratulations.
He's definitely getting the better end of the deal.
Many happy years to you both.
At first, I thought "Europe?" "Australia?" Beautiful shot and location. What kind of rock is that?
Redpoint or pinkpoint? (Anybody else call clipping draws already in place a pinkpoint?) Either way, nice shot and nice move.
Snow and short sleeves. Gotta love it.
Yeah, good lighting, great composition, cool angle and interesting subject matter don't do it for me either.
Ummm... hey, there's a wolf about to get your stuff.
That's not a cell phone on your harness, is it?
He's wearing a helmet. He'll be fine.
Couldn't just take the stairs, huh?
Carrot Top climbs?
So is that the name of the problem, or is SHE Janet?
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.
Beautiful. Simple. Strong. Colorful. I like it.
Nah, keep it on. And do a Jolly Roger next. Those always make me feel... special.
No. They don't. Those windows are pretty tiny, you know.
Looks kinda like "Witness the Fitness," Sharma's Arkansas roof problem.
Not gay, Australian.
Beautiful. Wait, wha?
He's a lucky guy. Now go climb something (outside, I mean).
Made me snort.
Is he wearing a wife beater?
Black pants (in the middle) looks about 8 ft tall (optical illusion).
Nice line, nice shot. BW shots rock.
One word: Chiggers.
Hey, I just went there last week. Nice little park.
I just hope that leg belongs to a dude.
Decent shot. How was the descent?
Finally, a solution to pesky crag dogs.
It's to the left.
That had to cost you a lot.
Thanks for not showing the hip smash ;-)
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. ;-)
RC.Com: the new Match.com?
What's that, about a 20 liter pack?
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?
Has to be the first shot of climbing in Egypt I've seen. Right on for posting up!
I was wondering the same thing (about the CItibank spot). The finally shot one that looks real.
So how does she descend? Are there anchors? Slings?
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.
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.
***** I just like the idea of a "one of the bad bolts I've clipped" collection of photos.
Correct-- Squirrel Deck. My bad.
Is it actually occupied?
He's not wearing jorts? Poseur.
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?
