Sweet scenery - makes me wanna go back to Whistler and climb instead of ski ;-)

she doesn't look like she needs a muscley boyfriend - heck, i wish *my* arms were as buff as hers ;-) great photo.

holy exposure batman! great shot.

Very striking photo, super cool.

Hehe, that's awesome, I love to see little kids cranking. But did he do the sit-start?

beautiful, simply beautiful

Cool shot, funky crag.

Ooo La La! Not to sound like a complete sexist, but Sweet Jesus, that is one hot, hard climbing betty! Nice picture too ;-)

View this Photo
Very cool shot.

View this Photo
mmmmm.... Oli....

View this Photo
Sweet shot, I particularly like the diagonal instrusion (quartz?) cutting across the face. I'd love to give that route a try.

View this Photo
Thanks for the comments guys. I realize it's not a great composition (I'm surprised it's ranked as high as it is actually), but like moabbeth says, any pic of IC is worth a look ;-)

4 out of 5 stars That's awesome ;-)

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Now that's cool - very creative.

4 out of 5 stars great composition, thumbs up.

4 out of 5 stars very cool shot, beautiful area.

4 out of 5 stars mmmm... flaring crack... looks tough. great shot.

i only wish i would have had a camera with a decent tele-photo lens, my little nikon digi-cam wasn't ideal for the job.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Great example of capturing the moment, nice one.

View this Photo
I miss the climbing around Austin, but I don't miss the heat.

View this Photo
Great shot! Looks like you could get in some natural pro at some point before the first bolt.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars What a wacky pic - I love it :-)

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars beauty man, incredible scenery.

View this Photo
I like it - nice composition / framing, gives you a sense of anticipation of the moves to come.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Excellent photo, Black Diamond could use this to advertise Camalots ;-)

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars You've posted some really great pictures to this site, and this is one is no exception, awesome.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars LOL, poor bastard, looks like he's having a great time ;-) Great photo.

4 out of 5 stars Beautiful colors -

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Wow, that is some incredible scenery, very beautiful.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Very nice shot. Looks like a super sweet route.

Great climbing - I love it out at Vedauwoo.

View this Photo
Yup, the chimney above has a cool hand crack, although it would be a tougher climb if you actually had to jam it (rather than do relatively easy chimney moves).

View this Photo
Yeah - it looks wide where she is, but it's actually hand jams, maybe a fist here and there. There is a short chimney section near the top, but it's not the 'crux'. Although it actually felt like the crux when I lead it - I got waaaaay too deep into it and felt like I could barely breath ;-) I thought the top out to get to the anchors was kinda scary also.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Sweeeeeet.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Beautiful shot, very nice.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I like how the two sides of the dihedral are such different colors, makes for an interesting contrast.

View this Photo
The way it was and the way it still is at Vedauwoo. There are a bunch of 5.7's there that really wore my ass out. Someday I'll actually have some off-width technique...

View this Photo
Good photo, nice looking line. Looks like that yellow Alien might be a tab big for that placement too ;-)

View this Photo
Nice to see a good photo of a 'moderate' climb. Does the route follow the obvious flake down lower to his right, then traverse across to where he is in this pic?

View this Photo
Neat!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars GULP - I'd be crying for my mommy. Great shot.

View this Photo
Nice shot - I definitely want to give the first pitch of this a go the next we are at Vedauwoo.

View this Photo
That looks like Lower Slot (5.6). The thin crack to the left is Lower Slot Left (5.7).

View this Photo
This is either Stand And Deliver or A Little On The Ugly Side - both are 10a I think. The big off-width directly above the climber is Upper Slot (5.6 or 5.7 depending on who you ask).

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Beautiful scenery, fantastic photo, well done.

View this Photo
Good advice. I think I've gotten a *little* better since this photo was taken, but I still get spanked on those nasty off-widths.

View this Photo
LOL - you're probably right, but to each his own. Quite certain that he wasn't anywhere close to being pumped out though ;-)

View this Photo
Nice - she's styling it. What's the rating on this route?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Sweeeeeet angle, great photo.

4 out of 5 stars Guys, shame on you. It's just not right to objectify young hot flexible gymnast chicks.

View this Photo
Yowzah! Did she escape from the circus or something?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Cool, I really like the intense look of concentration on her face. The route looks pretty intense too.

View this Photo
Yet another cool shot, nice. The rock almost looks like chert or flint.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I like it a lot. The darker areas above and below add a bit of contrast and help to frame the climber.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Good shot. I sure do miss that place, some really great climbing there.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Nice. Makes me wish I lived by a large body of water again. Every time I see a shot of someone climbing by an exotic seashore I almost regret being in Colorado ;-)

View this Photo
I miss climbing at Reimer's, it's a great little crag.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Seems like most of the higher quality photos on this site are people cranking hard stuff, nice to see a good pic of a climb I could actually try ;-)

View this Photo
note to self: must go climb in thailand some day....

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars nice composition, very cool

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Awesome

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Is this Ripple? Great pic, I miss E-Rock.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars The two over-exposed areas (chalk bag and the sloper above the climber) are a little distracting, but otherwise it's a kick-ass shot, really captures the moment.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Ahh, Big Sur, gotta love it. Awesome shot.

View this Photo
Do you have to carry a machete on your harness when you climb this route? Sweet pic.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I gotta make it to the Gunks someday soon. Great shot.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Great shot, looks like a sweet route as well.

View this Photo
Sweet! That looks like an awesome route, I gotta go to the Gunks soon.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars That's a beautiful looking line, great shot.

View this Photo
All you need is some Stealth rubber on your tounge and you'll send it for sure ;-)

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Really nice shot. I think it might be worth cropping it to about 3/4 height (or even a little less) to better focus in on the action.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Another sweet shot of the Gunks. Awesome.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Very cool - looks sort of like being in a church or cathedral.

4 out of 5 stars Man that looks awesome

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Too bad the image quality isn't better, but still a great composition, awesome looking climb.

View this Photo
Wow, 10c? There better be some serious buckets under that roof. Awesome looking.

4 out of 5 stars That's a cool shot

5 out of 5 stars Awesome photo

View this Photo
Nice to see that setting a speed record doesn't preclude stopping to take a few glory shots ;-)

View this Photo
Now that's funny, good one.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Yeah baby - nothing like an exposed traverse to get the blood pumping. The photo looks like it's a bit skewed to the right though?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Now that is a cool shot, nicely done.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars That looks incredible, great shot.

Now there's something you don't see every day. Sweeeeeeet.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I'm sure after the redpoint he'll downgrade it to 14b.

View this Photo
Great shot, well done

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Great photo. I'm actually going to be working in the Black Sea in early Sept for about two weeks, flying in and out of Istanbul. Is there any climbing / bouldering near there?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Compelling image, very nice.

5 out of 5 stars Gnarly. I want some purple corduroy tights.

View this Photo
Nice!

View this Photo
mo-sheep - yeah, this is taken from just above the Gash (so kind of NE). Killer bivvy area actually, being able to wake up to a spectacular sunrise and hop right on the route was oh-so-nice.

View this Photo
Awesome. Despite being a little blurry I think this is one of the best pics you've submitted.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Sweet pic. Rewritten is definitely one of the best 'easy' routes at Eldo.

View this Photo
Damn that looks schweeeeet.

I love the Rincon wall. Haven't done the first pitch of OTH, but p2 is indeed super nice.

Kick Ass

4 out of 5 stars Definitely one of the best slacklining shots so far and a sweet photo in general.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars That's a really cool shot, be nice to see a little more high-res version.

View this Photo
Wow, that's crazy looking. Great photo.

View this Photo
Cool shot, sure looks harder than a 5.7 from this angle.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars DAMN that looks awesome, gotta love an exposed traverse with incredible views below.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Now that's a cool looking route.

View this Photo
Stemalicious. Nice shot, beauty of a line too. Shouldn't this be in the 'trad' rather than 'sport' category though?

View this Photo
Now that's a sweet shot. What time of year was this taken?

View this Photo
It's like Mr. T having a stare-down against a cucumber before the big fight. "I pity the fool!".

woe - pretty sure i would never have the stones or the requisite balance to try that

Nice to see some cool E-Rock shots - great work.

View this Photo
And up above looms p2 of OTH - such a good 5.9 combo.

View this Photo
There's a lot going on in this picture, I like it.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Definitely one of the better ice climbing shots in awhile, nicely done.

View this Photo
That's a very cool shot.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Nicely done!

View this Photo
Very nice shot - would be nice if the climber was a bit more visible, but still interesting.

View this Photo
Now there's something you don't see every day - super cool picture.

View this Photo
Oh man, not even in my dreams, awesome job.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Man, this shot should be rated higher than it is, very nice! Beauty of a route too.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Nice to see a shot of someone fiddling with some old school gear on a hard lead, very cool.

View this Photo
I lead Emerald City (I'm belaying her just out sight). I thought about giving the first pitch of OTH a shot that day, but found that I was lacking the requisite testicular fortitude. 5.9's at Eldo are still quite a challenge for me, hoping to get stronger this season...

4 out of 5 stars My favorite bouldering shot at the moment, really cool.

4 out of 5 stars Cool photo, stellar scenery. Kinda reminds me of the crowds on the first flatiron a few weekends ago though, what a zoo.

The front page needs more cutting edge climbing photography like this, well done ;-)

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars good stuff, really makes me want to save some $$ for a euro-climbing trip

View this Photo
LOL - that's a great route. I found it was easier to be facing the other direction for that section, then switch sides after 15-20'.
