When kalcario dies, he'll go before Satan who will tell him, "Puny mortal, you may leave My domain, but to do ssso, you mussst climb out on thisss ssslab." And there before kalcario will materialize... Stone Mountain, NC.

Fantastic line. The best on that section o' wall.

4 out of 5 stars Man, y'all have some of the kickinest rock down there.

View this Photo
I've said it before and I'll say it again: y'all have the coolest rock down there. And, orangeoverhang, you do a great job of showing it to us. Thanks!

View this Photo
It's super low, rope_burn, but also super featureless. Storm in a Teacup's a good route, kilgymrats, but the one on the arete to the left, Yankey Go Home, is one of the best in the state. Do that, if you haven't already!

It doesn't look like you're enjoying the view. It looks like you're checking out your feet. :)

One of the better butt shots I've seen. Like the perspective on the rope.

I'll echo jhump's Q. How did you manage a sixty footer at sport crag?

View this Photo
Fun route! Pumpy. This section of wall has several classics and this is definitely one of 'em.

Screw the helmet, get your leg out from that rope!

Go spraylord. Seriously, nice pic. I would have loved to see it mid flight.

Wow, sweet shot. I love the colors on the wall. Even the shrub looks cool. May have to get on this one when I drop by this Spring.

View this Photo
OOooo... That looks fun.

PS - Everything is relative, however, take any 5.8 climber from most of the crags in the world and place him or her on this route and watch him or her crap his or her pants. Fun for the whole family!

View this Photo
Everything at Stone is scary; this route is no exception. Of course, therein lies the secret to Stone Mountain slabbing: stay calm and you send. Panic and you lose skin by the square foot. Good work Aaron! Yankee Go Home is next!

View this Photo
It is, but it's also virtually holdless, and this climb has an 80 foot 5.8 runout. You keep your cool, you send. It's that simple.

Jugs... big...

Rock Wars, eh? Hmmm... (BTW, what's the route behind it?)

View this Photo
Wow, those holds really ARE the size of buicks. ;)

Sweet backstep/twistlock. Boulder's technique is far better than Bisquit's.

Judging by the amount of gear on his rack, I'd say that his last piece of pro is exactly where he planned it to be. He's on his fly. (Or he's done it a few times prior.)

View this Photo
BTW, Neil, you've single-handedly changed my dream area to the Grampians. Keep 'em coming!

View this Photo
Hmm... I've never been to an area where the ethic is to clean your chalk off the holds after you climb. Is that something the second should do? ;)

Sweet shot, though brighter clothes (maybe red?) would have really made it money.

Ah yes, one of the few good routes on Table Rock. Glad you liked it!

0 out of 5 stars Yet another perv-sponsored front page pic. Sorry, climber_chic, but I rated your profile pic a 1, in an effort to get your mug off the front page. I'm sure you're a very nice person.

Headed there this Saturday -- Woot! Nice shot Aaron!

Nice pirate. I love this route. This pitch is a little cruxy if I remember correctly.

View this Photo
I agree. This seems disorienting to me. Good route, though. This is the last pitch before the dark band, right?

You should crop your crotch out.

1 out of 5 stars Is that a... slab dyno?

View this Photo
This is one of my favorite routes of all time! The indirect version (with the 5.9R traverse) was one of my first ever serious leads. I remember when it was protected by a mankest-of-mank 1/4-er. Even with the shiny new bolt, it's still a bold, exciting line!

View this Photo
What are you talkin' about? That sh1t's truck. I'd hang my mom from it. ;)

View this Photo
alp, mission accomplished! This is a great shot of a truly great line. Hillary, I'm glad I don't have your monitor. ;)

View this Photo
A rail like that on a slab like that just screams high step and mantle. Beautiful! And what's wrong with the fall on this? It's practically vertical.

View this Photo
Nice ass. :P

View this Photo
What a fake. That is soooo NOT Linville Gorge.

View this Photo
That's a very well-organized kitchen, but I gave the shot a 1 in hopes of getting it off the front page. Sorry man.

View this Photo
Kinda neat. I like it, though I'd rather see a lot less pant and a lot more fingers on holds.

View this Photo
This is better than your other drawing. You should draw the final position darker than the rest. Going forward in time, each figure should be darker than the last. The way you have it here, it's just too confusing.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Is ALL your gear so new? :P

View this Photo
Good skill with photoshop, but it would be a better shot if the rock and climber weren't so dark.

2 out of 5 stars I see London! I see France!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars yanqui, check here: http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=33951 for an up-close-and-personal view of the crux. It's one of the worst sandbags ever; the feet are at shoulder level, the hands are either tiny or slopey (depending on which one you're pimping) and the gear is garbage! But if you pull through, or even French-free through, you're rewarded with one of the best dihedrals of all time (see above). Must be Carolina!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Thanks Joe! The rope's hidden, that's all. I assure you, Phil didn't solo the Book!

Would you believe that in 18 years of active rock climbing, I've never climbed limestone? I need to do something about this... seriously.

View this Photo
"This was a fun crack we found while hiking through Indian Creek." :P hahahahahaha!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Oh, man I love this route... and the shot captures it's nature very well -- delicate, balancy. It looks harder here than it actually is, but it does keep you thinking all the way. This is bar-none the best pure eyebrow route on the Glass, which also makes it the best pure eyebrow route on the planet!

4 out of 5 stars Nice shot! It really captures the flow of a long easy freesolo. Sticky granite, big holds and no rope -- it doesn't get any better!

View this Photo
That landing is also emotion eliciting. Sweet shot!

4 out of 5 stars The shallow DOF is part of what I like about it. Soloing is similar; the background fades away and you're in your own world.

3 out of 5 stars Yeah, that kickin' chalkbag cancels out the tube socks. ;)

It's a pretty cool pic, but what really makes it look good is the black border. Nice touch.

The only beaches within weekend striking distance of Charlotte have no boulders, so to me, this seems exotic. I love it!

Is that a guy falling in the background?

"...a fall at this point would not be nice!" You mean because he has a bolt at his knees instead of his chest? ;)

Perhaps you should buy an auto-focus camera.

Felt like it there, too. I did the colors on the computer. God, I love digital.

No, there's nothing there. It's typical of Carolina sport routes that the easier sections are a little run out. But, that's one of the things I like about this shot.

coloclimbergog, the rock that I think you're asking about is actually lichen covering the rock. The route follows the clean streak inbetween. Tim, I tweaked the contrast a little on the computer. It was also originally a color photo. Oh, the shame!

4 out of 5 stars Krispywawa, this would be one of my favorite shots on the site were it not for your leg behind the rope. No, you're not supposed to solo (if you don't want to), but if you tie into a rope, you are supposed to know how to use it.

There are anchors on this needle, but some others don't have any. Those require a "Needles-style rappel," which is a variation of a simul-rappel. I won't bore you with the details.

Nice Dave! Looks like a sweet route.

View this Photo
Normally that's good advice, but it happens either way at this bolt. And, it's one of two bolts on this route that have the same problem. This one is the first bolt -- the angle is steep, the holds are 1-2 pad slopers and the landing is 100% talus. At the second of these two bolts (which is far worse, BTW), if you fall and the biner fails you have almost enough rope out to kick talus. In this case, bad bolting IS the problem. Lockers are a better, though still not perfect, solution.

2 out of 5 stars Several reasons, actually. One, what mulcahy said. Two, the flake below me is hollow like a bass drum (you can see behind my left foot where a piece broke off). Three, the bolt below me is the first protection on the route. Four, the landing is deadly. Five, just out of sight below me, there's a semi-loose coffin-sized block. In the end, I decided to leave it, since I don't THINK it will fail. I'm not sure how it would affect the flake, though, if it did fall off. It about broke my heart to add those bolts, but after several days of consideration, I just felt it was the smart thing to do. If it helps, the crag has a majority sport lines, and I did keep the top two thirds of this all natural. Thank you for bringing it up, though. Seriously, I'm not afraid to answer for my actions and I encourage you to call me on them whenever you need to. :)

5 out of 5 stars "BS," is when a few people who live nowhere near a crag and have never climbed there want to control its bolting.

5 out of 5 stars WTF, dude. :) I have time to surf this site, get my work done AND average 3-4 climbing days a week. How many do you get? (Guiding doesn't count!) I will defend the NC, ground-up trad ethic as vehemently as I do ORG's bolted crack ethic. I suppose you're entitled to your "opinion," but locals and land managers determine acceptable ethics, not anonymous wankers from across the country. And just so everybody knows... Tradlodyte and I are best friends, often climbing partners and former roomates. Any shit we give each other will be backed up by beers and belays later.

5 out of 5 stars Great shot, but damn, I hate that route. TotallyTammyTrivia: It was originally bolted to be a harder line that runs left of where it goes today. That's why climbers sometimes have to step left to clip, then step back right to climb.

5 out of 5 stars The climber is Phil Hoffman, AKA, Tradlodyte. And FYI, he tried to get into position for the bat hang for several minutes before finally plunging into the icy depths below. Once in the water, the sharks circled close, but Phil fought them off by swatting them with his shoes... just like a girl. He didn't fare as well against the pirates, though, who captured him, raped him, made him walk the plank... and then fished him out, took his wallet (which they had forgotten previously) and did it all over again. When we finally pulled his battered, bleeding, freely-farting carcass from the brine, all he could say was, "I'll get it next time." Go Phil!

5 out of 5 stars Watching this was one of the most exciting climbing-spectator experiences I've ever had. I literally thought she would fall at almost every move through the crux, which is like ten moves long. She grabbed the wrong hold... I thought she'd pop off. She stuck it. She blew the key sequence... I thought it was over. She stuck a desparate lunge. She wobbled, teetered, dynoed, pimped and otherwise fought this route to the bitter end and, finally, she was the last one standing. I think I aged a year in ten minutes. "Shuler," BTW. ;)

Yes. Get them down to size before posting and the compressor won't give you the shaft. This one is 94k, but you could have had it as high as 128k and it would have left everything alone. I shrink the size of my shots so they just barely don't fit on a single screen, then tweek the resolution to get it just within the 128k limit. Another trick is to hit the sharpen filter once before posting. Despite getting whored by the compressor, the shots are still amazing. I like this one best, for sure.

3 out of 5 stars However... heh... I do think the shot looks better rotated 90 clockwise. That really makes it explode off the screen.

3 out of 5 stars This route sits firmly atop my Vegas tick list. I will NOT go to Red Rock again without climbing it.

3 out of 5 stars A well-composed shot. Too bad the routes are so squeezed; I think I would like it more without the other rope in there.

3 out of 5 stars This is a neat shot, but your focus is on a swatch of rock somewhere between the action and the camera. If her face were the focus, I'd love this one instead of just liking it.
