i done it!
great pic of a sweet looking route (not leading that hard yet). i highly doubt the image was photoshopped, as the shot of the valley and new paltz in the background is what you would be looking at from that angle. also, the "overly sharpened" and square edges are everywhere at the gunks. well done.
a shot with the climber higher on the route, hangin way out there would be killer. Great pic tho...what an awesome route it is...
juanjo, ive heard everything from 5.8+ to 5.10
thats a really nice shot, but i wish more of the background was visible on the left, maybe a horizontal shot wouldve been better
ooo, a bit funky, but nice!
great pic, and i cant help but think the boulder looks like honeycomb
i like it :-D
its kinda abstract almost, i like it alot
one of the best bouldering shots ive seen on this site
dude id love to go there!!! (in the summer, i was there in the winter to ski, but the boulders were sitting in 8 feet of snow). its a beautifull area...to bad those mormons have to mine there....
i dare you to aid it... just easy with the pitons ;-)
dude id love to go there, hoping for this march...
i just love how the picture leaves out the big block, positioned right where you dont want it. Great pic
that as a second lead, awesome? id say closer to retarded! my 2nd lead was 5.1, but hey, im just trying to stay alive. Cool shot tho.
woah, ive done shorter roped routes. sweet.
sweet photo of a sweet looking problem, nice work
really shows some of the sketchyness involved with aiding, all summed up in his expression. awesome shot.
wow, can someone say contrived?
i thot there was some photoshoping when i first saw this as well, but i think its just because of the weird groundcover. sweet pick.
im sorry my comment came off as very offensive, no bad intentions. i have nothing against mormons as a religious group, its just rather sad that they are mining such a great resource. my bad.
wow i cant believe the thing hasnt snapped! its uber-skinny towards the top and looks like hardened mud, yikes!
when was it taken?
i hope that line isnt suspended to high... killer pic tho, probably the best slacklining photo ive seen on this site.
i have a similar shot like that over a lake, yours is beautiful, best sunset shot ive seen on this site.
wow...rainbows really do lead to pots of gold :-D
one of my favorite pictures on the site, its my desktop now - definatly a 10.
thats the best bouldering picture ive seen on the front page (that i can remember). awesome photo.
was that an onsight or had he been projecting it?
sweet, i didnt even see the climber at first the landscapes so breathtaking
the tag on the hanger probably says something like 1985 right? scary stuf!
if only the guys feet had swung an inch higher so they didnt interfere with the lighthouse - oh well, still an exceptional shot.
do you have one of him climbing?
nice picture - its amazing that route doesnt get any stars, its good climbing and this pic makes it look like a classic. if it allowed voting id give it a 9 or more. probably one of my favorite jtree pics here.
sweet shot, i love the wide angle. i have a pic of me screwing around on this problemin my profile, taken from about the same angle - the slab beside the cave begs for a photo op. my pic just doesnt compare to this tho. very high marks.
the slab is the crux, but not enough fun to justify all the skin it shaves off your tips. The roof is where its at, traversing in on the ledge is the most fund way to do it.
its a fun runout to the chains on that route if you dont bring gear :-D oh and nice pic, i love the clouds and sky
awesome, it looks like a painting, had to give it high marks
looks like a fun landing too
wow. i cant believe it made it on the overview page for sourland. -ws
looks like an add, advertising something like a cell phone or investment company, something random like that, cool pic
youve got some shrubbary on the left side. i like it, it adds color.
that chalkbag is probably mad nasty for strenuos offwidths - chickenwing anyone?
for me the res isnt high enough to see the bolts, makes it look rather hardcore. nice pic.
thats the highest rating ive ever given a buttshot, not bad.
ooo, another photo of this problem that doesnt show the menacing block at the bottem - funstuf.
seems overbolted, especially because its a roof and there isnt much to hit. or does it just look like this in the photo? sweet pic by the way.
are those bolts i see?! you could fit a bigbro in there...
so the headlamp just magically appeared on his head when he stuck the move?
hardcore climber i thot the same thing, and then thought the guy was missing a foot, funky pic.
its sorta depressing that someone took a picture of belay bolts and it gets rated higher than my best pic.
aww come on sheryl, smile! your at the creek...
very deep loking, but the bright orange slings call to much attention to themselves - 8.
i love how this is on the gap's overview page, right next to where it says "helmets are manditory".
i like it, but i wish the frame extended farther left.
i love the picture, its awesome. the large copyright thing in the corner is very distracting tho.
i can imagine a ranger at the bottem yelling through a loudspeaker: "GET OFF OF THERE YOU FOOL!"
ah that dangling rope...
my first response was "wheres the climber?"
is that one of the cracks under dougs roof?
looks kinda chilly for shorts and a sleeveless, brrrrrr
the other rope in the corner is kinda distracting, otherwise a nice photo
i wish the river was visable, otherwise a very good shot
id crop about 2 inches of the top, and 1 inch off the left. otherwise a really sweet shot.
whats that go at, T5?
its in rumney new hampshire
woah that one looks pretty thin. great pic - although i wish i could see more on the left. what a view.
i really like this shot, but i wish that headstone wasnt centered, more off to the right.
looks like your climbing on the bottem of a glacier. sweet.
i like it! much better than alot of the photos rated higher.
...and one day i met a leprechaun, he told me to burn things.
hey ive done that problem... A few critiques though; the subject (climber and boulder) is underexposed, while the crowd in the background is well lit. This seems to focus the attention on the crowd (thats bad) instead of on the climber where it should be.
the lorax is a fun problem eh? as for the photo, it could do with better framing. the climbers face is completely covered by his arm. the random dude whos sorta in the picture gets the attention because of the hidden face of the climber. i would have tried to get higher, shooting down on the climber as to make his face visible, and eliminate the bystander.
the crap on the ground is very distracting, pads, bottles, etc. if they were removed or the angle was changed it could make for a great picture.
oh the offwidth to the right looks like so much fun, why is she even bothering with the face?
not a bad picture, but the leaves on the left and stuff in the rite corner is sorta distracting.
haha those things make the green camalot in the back look sooo small. sweet.
yeah is that crack alot shallower than it looks or something?
yeah i first thought it was the gunks or the gap too
i really like it! only wish it were larger. The trees make it look like a painting.
backgrounds a bit overexposed, otherwise a nice pic
id crop the junk off the left, otherwise superb.
Uh Oh! Did someone drop a number?!
woah, that cracks big enough for your whole ARM! hehehe
How can you not give that a 10? theres just so much to look at, and its all wonderfull.
could that thing go on gear? looks like it would take some smaller nuts, rurps or lost arrows. nice pic btw.
Its nice to see someone actually bolting on lead, even if the consequences of the hooks failing are minimal.
The climber was probably below the draw before he threw, so when he moved up he created slack wich went through the draw, making it look like a bad belay.
nice picture, but it would be better without all the crap on the left.
nice pic, but it would be sooo much better without the sneaker and corner of the pad.
Seems like hes leading it, and just pulled "the move". His ropes probably running around the corner down to the belayer on the ledge.
It looks like you photoshopped the swell on the right in front of a painting. interesting.
if the horizon was leveled it would be really nice
nice! would be better if the stuff on the ground wasnt right below the climber though, its a bit distracting.
What does his mind tend to wander on 11d?
I need a bucket to collect my drool...
Ah, I see someone has given me a 3. Thanks abunch.
Why is this still on the front page? Its partially flooded out and way over saturated. Might have been good if it wasnt photoshopped to death.
ditch that awfull copyright - it wrecks the photo.
i hate it when people take shots from above and the belayer and packs are underneath the subject, its very distracting. otherwise a nice pic
A cool photo of the most un-intimidating problem ive ever seen.
I really like this photo. Its nice to see an MT pic that isnt a butshot.
I wish my crag had a base like that. Nice n Grassy.
Thats quite a rack for such a small climb
That problem looks contrived.
Yeah i forgot to mention that it looks hard too.
I kinda like the pad. It spices the picture up (no pun intended).
looks exposed for a sportclimb!
Wow that sequence looks WAY easier than what i did. I turned that thing into a V5+ horror show.
That looks like it could take good gear.
Uh Oh, it appears i just drooled all over my keyboard.
Got love the technical foot beta
looks grungy, but a cool shot none the less.
Classic! What exactly does he have tied off for pro?
Reminds me of the delaware water gap... [url]http://home.att.net/~njcoffman/Climb/delwatga.jpg[/url]

Now thats a splitter! Great shot
I wish the picture showed more on the bottem, the picture seems incomplete. Otherwise very nice, that problem on the left looks inspiring!
Great pic, just get rid of that UGLY url in the corner.
^^^ I agree, ruins many nice pictures ^^^
Your alot more likely to land on the crashpads if you unfold them ya know...
Nice to see Picard cranking... to bad he had to move.
Great picture, but it seems just a wee bit oversaturated.
I crap out things that look like that boulder.
Bolts!?! That thing could be mostly protected with natural gear.
Cool photo, but ditch the url.
Itll take quite a bit of bashing for that to go free, looks sweet.
Hmm, it seems that you all missed the dripping sarcasm.
Sheesh look at how worn it is!
Looks good, but has a photoshop feeling to it.
The more i see of this route the more i wish i could do it. Wonderfull shot!
That would never go free in its original form. It would take mutant climbers who could campus on their wedged fingernails to get up that beast, without the pin scarrs.
a bit oversaturated, but it looks so awesome
^ Yeah I was thinking that too. I am also suprised at the ammount of bolts; I count 3 right around the climber and 1 piton.
looks exposed for a sport route
The pockets look awesome
I love pics of harder gear routes, and this one is very good
Cool Picture, but the long description is making the front page like 3 feet wide.
Ok, thanks for changing it, and sweet picture.
Awesome Pic, I saw that on the way to lake placid from keene valley but we didnt have time to stop :-(
Leave it to a big chunk of rock to make you feel insignificant.
I wanna be there now.
to much detritus in the corner
Cool problem with a cramped start... I havent gotten it without bumping into something.
I love this route, its one of the most wild 5.7s ive done. And yes it is 5.7.
Its certainly unique.
Better bring the big wall rack for that thing.
What a weird chunk of stone. Cool, but weird.
Looks like youve found my little area :-D
Makes me want to do enduro man. O wait, I cant lead 11+ trad.
Looks like an old painting almost. I really like it, this could be a postcard.
I miss jtree :-(
With better framing this would be a keeper. The subject is right in the center of the photo, generally a no no. It might look better if you cropped a bit off the top, like halfway between the cimbers top hand and the top. I love the colors though, keep it up!
Perhaps it should have been left as a toprope?
Looks like the last draw was extended with another, but he clipped in short. This is one of my favorite potrero shots, the picture makes it look like a limestone yosemite.
I agree, blurr the background.
I agree with braaadly.
Doesnt look like much in terms of pro...
Oh, btw though, this area is a couple miles from cradle rock.
Finally a different angle on the problem, it seems that every other picture of it is the same.
Nice picture, but it seems like everything is just a different shade of brown.
Perfect... slopers.... yummy.
Its nice to see that traditional gear was used... way to many sport routes now have bolts next to gear eating cracks. Great pic btw, the colors of the grampians always impress me.
Great positioning for a sport route!
Turn one of the shirts red in photoshop, just to really confuse people.
Tricky start but the rest is soo fun. Great problem.
I think the shutter was offended by the excessive tick marks.
a bit over saturated, but very cool.
Nope not live free or die, its further right and has a dirty chimney next to it. You are sorta right tho, live free or die is a really killer route. This is fast and furious, which is also worth doing.
Wow I didnt even notice the climber!
Yeah its a great route, if it were vertical or past vertical it would be rediculously hard.
Great pic, and I hope the landing is nice! Im guessing that problem is 25ft+ ?
CHOSS Alert! lol
Its possible that after he clipped the bolt there wasnt enough slack, and the belayer is in the process of feeding some out. That would make it look like theres tension.
If that were 10 feet higher it would be quite fun!
She'd be pretty fucked if she fell there... not only is her foot behind the rope but its on the cam. Potentially she could be flipped upside down, kick her gear out, and be dropped another 15 feet. Ugly fall! Glad she pulled through it.
Hey... it doesnt count if your wearing clothes!
Weird... I dont think i like the rock in the foreground though and the url on the pad is a bit strange.
Great photo! The problem looks sweet too!
Those mountains in the background are amazing! The only thing about this photo is it seems like the bottem margin is too high up, the spotter is cut off at an awkward spot. Do you have a version that isnt cropped?
That looks like it would eat knifeblades or rurps... or maybe theres nothing and the photo is tricking me. Balsy lead either way.
That much ropedrag shoud be illegal.
This photo would be better if it was sized a bit smaller so it fit on a normal screen.
I agree with the more space at the top crowd, but I think a larger frame in general would be awesome, like if you had a shot from further back or an uncropped one.
Tape gloves are pretty useless if they dont cover your knuckles.
I dunno about the above comment, the pic looks way cool. I am really tempted to reach out into my screen and grab those slopers, they look so awesome.
I think this was in best of the west? Definatly looks way cool and hard. Nice pic.
I think the belayer is just looking down at his belay device, maybe to pay out slack.
Im liking this shot...
edit out the date and youll have a great shot!
That looks quite a bit bigger than fists... but cool photo!
Is the other photo with the light streak just a less exposed version of this that was cropped differently? Theyre both cool.
This would be cool without all the leaves and crap.
Fighting friction? Arent you trying to work with it?
Sweet Gnarly Fingerlocks! Tough looking move!
Well theyre both pretty sweet, although I think I like the framing on the other more. Definatly a thumbs up though.
pretty sweet for a butt shot!
By his car? lol. No, the photographer is further south on the GT ledge half way up the trapps, probably at the start of modern times.
How come theres a bolt if there are two cracks right there?
The cropped toe is annoying me...
Im thinking doubles for that pitch...
Damn your lucky, they fill in all those concrete gaps in new jersey. They are all way to shallow to jam, not that ive never thought of doing it.
Rotating it so that the right edge is on top would be the best orientation for this pic. If it was shot from the top down the camera must have been on an angle because the draws are hanging off to the side.
Yeah that crack is really cool, if it werent on such a short boulder it would be classic.
Hmm, my first impression was "wow this buttshot sucks", but then it immediatly grew on me. The framing, black and white tone, and your body positioning over the cloud make this photo pretty cool.
higher res please!
The largest valley giant might be big enough for the very bottem, and the #5 bigbro could go in a bit higher. Above that you would be on your own.
You put your climbing shoes on for that?
The way the rock sweeps down towards the top of the picture reminds me of shots looking down the nose.
Now thats a roof.
Ok dude your an idiot, put this in the trapps bouldering section.
If thats clean what is dirty?
Nice picture... and the mesas are awesome!
That problem looks beautifull...
Great picture, although I wish it would fit on a normal screen.
I think that every day... the area I live in has thousands of two foot boulders; there are only a few dozen that are big enough to climb.
Reminds me of the dangler...
This needs to be bigger. NEEDS.
Thats not runout, your just being stupid and not putting any gear in.
Magazine quality would be awesome.
They might not be socks... he couldve taped his ankles.
I was about to write the same think, crankdown.
nothing like a equalized two piece mini anchor to give you confidence for the crux.
Was that taken as a panoramic shot or done with a photo stitch? Either way thats a killer shot, the centered boulder works.
Looks like one really big calf burn.
From this angle its hard to believe it goes at 5.3
The rope is easily visible in the bottem center part of the photo.
Thats pretty hot, the light and clouds are perfect.
The "perfect" heelhook gave me charlie horses like that was its job. Other than that it was a sweet problem.
The foliage is indeed spectacular.
Because this picture is posted I assume you sent...
All the crap in the bottem half kinda kills the shot.
Would be cool if it wasnt a but shot...
Its very high, the people at the bottem are on a ledge.
Lotsa questions... and I will answer them (but im not trying to steal maestros spotlight). first the climb gets anywhere between 5.9 and 5.10 depending on what generation of climber you ask ( it used to be a way sandbagged 5.8 or 9). Also what most people do next is heelhook and work their hands up the corner. Finally, I think im going to be the asshole who says it REALLY ISNT THAT EXPOSED! Honestly easy overhang and gelsa are more exposed. However, i must admit the dangler is a pretty cool little problem.
Its actually not that tall... but the photo is sweet.
This is a great photo, it really captures something.
holy mono madness
Not a bad first lead, but wouldnt it have been better to try something a bit easier, just in the spirit of good judgement?
Unfortunately no ammount of photoshopping can turn a butt shot into a great picture....
Now thats a finger crack.
We all know what people were really rating... (no offense)
I guess using twins on rock is a european thing?
Seriously though i like the picture, new pair looks sweet in the fog.
Its features like this that make 5.15 gear routes a possibility...
Yes, but imagine 50 or 100 feet of sustained moves like that in a row, placing gear on lead.
Best butt shot evar.
Id give it a 10-, although its more like V0-. The real crux is placing pro if you want something where he has the yellow piece.
I cant believe this is sitting at a 7.5 while there are about 25 mediocre pictures of the dangler rated higher.
biner into biner is generally frowned upon
Wow, thats alot of closely spaced draws! is there a ledge right below the picture?
Watch the grade inflation, the teddy bear crack is v2 and the traverse into it just a 3. tit toss is really fun tho (its v1)
That looks incredible, especially that line and the crack 15' to the left of the climber!
Is that view from the summit or is there still more to go?
How could you not like this climb?!?
Set that shit with a hammer and its good to go.
Extending that purple sling would have done alot for preventing rope drag.
Impressive lead, but the helmet thing - not so much. I always wear my helmet because its never a good day for a concussion... or worse.
If it was a dude in the shot the rating wouldnt even be half as high.
I wasnt criticizing you for being female, theres just a really lame trend of people rating mediocre photos highly because the subject is an attractive girl.
The seam to the right would make a killer aid line.
Its really crazy when people to handstands there...
Crazy picture. The colors are way over saturated though.
Crazy picture. The colors are way over saturated though.
Wow... now imagine that with exposure. It would have most of us a little spooked.
this is why we climb...
Looks like a red skytop. way cool.
omg thats redonkulous
yeah i had the same experience! it took several tries to get a #8 stopper off.
hey whatever, it looks pretty.
Its cool, but screams photoshop.
extension is your friend
Thats one ugly quickdraw.
looks like a pile. but its pretty.
because it looks like theres a 4th class route up the other side?
wow. A1- bolt ladder, anyone?
Its kinda funny theyre all wearing the same outfit.
Id prefer to flash that problem, rather than work it.
I'd recommend a different pair of shoes for climbing brokeback mountain!
I like it.
Shhh... dont tell him about the jug to his left!
No pro in that gaping horizontal?
I find the angle on el cap to be somewhat awkward and I wish there was sky visible above it.
Bad effects wont make a mediocre photo better.
Hes making that way harder than it needs to be. Throw some aiders on and A1 that puppy.
Larger, without the huge copyright, please?
Whats it like on that bulge? Looks sick.
Did you lead that as an aid climb?
The fake lighting sorta bugs me.
yes, it is ants line.
Is spring offwidth season?
Im liking the stuff I keep seeing out of homestake pass.
Camp 6 sure is comfier than camp 4 huh?
the climber should be one crack over to the left!
i want to be there.
not bad for a butt shot
Are there really 5 bolts in 8 feet?
The playground is very unique.
Thats the only boulder I've ever seen with a vagina.
I like that his elbow and some of the stoppers got cut off, the tighter framing makes the scene feel more cramped and desperate.
I wish I had a wall like that to train on, id be so strong!
Those jams look awesome.
You dont think the entire face is coated in chalk at the top do you?
CCK is good but CCK Direct is way better imho. Three different cruxes, pumpy but with good rests, hits up the best parts of the original and more. killer finish too...
do you mean grade/rating?
I want to be there right now.
I want to do a tower!
