That's awesome.. i love it.. and i agree 100%!!-JakeDatc
As my photo. professor says.. it doesn't matter what kind of camera takes the picture it's what the photographer see's and captures.. great pic JakeDatc
WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! lol hope that harness is tight --jakeDatc
nice.. the beer is for extra stabilization on that side right? hehe- JakeDatc
Great pic.. Vram.. i think bigger you would lose the texture and detail of the stone buildings and rock faces.. JakeDatc
I love reflection pictures.. water glass etc and this is a great pic.. the mineral deposits place the picture.. it's not just a run of the mill lake reflection taken anywhere.. good job --JakeDatc
you mean you don't warm up on roof sections like that?? i love how the tan skin and blue tank top stand out from the background
Yea we have great fun rapping..we use Nick's Rescue 8 and leather gloves and our hands still burn =c)
What's wrong with rapping this way? And please don't trash any of the armed forces or i'll find a way to have your comments removed.Also, the term is Jarhead..get it right :) we are always very safe and under control, i am in no way telling beginners to rap this way
Sweet shot.. i love the black and white and the boardwalk path leading your eye right into the water fall.. good composition
Nice rack... all that gear i mean ;) nice close up pic tho
That does look fun i agree :)
Well of COURSE! ya can't just bring it along to sit on your rack.. what fun is that :)cool pic through the crack
Nice shot again..i agree some fill flash might lighten up behind her but the shadow keeps your eye more focused on the detail in her arms and the crimps (the jug i think is where her right hand is on.. compared to all the other holds..it looks nice and possibly sunk into the rock further then we can see)
That's a great shot through airplane glass
NICE! great tib/fib fracture there
I love how the quickdraws hanging down show you the overhang.
That's a great pic.. i love silouettes and thats a new one for me so, nice!
AHH i've wanted a wide lens for the longest time and this bring it back again :) i kinda like the lines of the vignetting.. makes the roundness really come out
Are you kidding? that's how you should show up to EVERY crag. I'll PM ya.. you just drop it off at my house k? HOOAHH great job guys/gals
now.. is tape stickier then Stealth?? that's a little dedication and a little nuts to .13b with only one shoe
that's a kick@ss shot.. great timing, light, background, composition etc nice job
HAHA Arret.. that's true and very weird.. :::MUTANT SEEN CLIMBING TODAY:::
You need to photo shop in a thought bubble of "HUH??" lol
Hehe cute clip-action shot.. how's that rope taste kiddo! mmm nylon/chalk mix. and yea that doesn't seem bad for shade tim.
that's damn impressive.. excellent shot
that's a sweet pic.. some of the best ones are unplanned shots with a whole lotta luck..that one's worth framing
Honey... go mow the roof please...lol
Can trolls have pictures too? Don't worry the harness will absorb all the impact of a fall.. here's your sign.
I know you wanted all the mountains but too bad all the other junk wasn't in the way. but the view makes up for it.
Yay rachel! woohoo.. glad you didn't let that guy kick you off
If they had pamphlets to take with you.. that would be uh classic but scary too
Now.. if you had lost concious landing on the ledge.. forgot the upper moves....onsight? nice hip belay by the faceless cowboy :)
I love the rope going straight into the black..bottomless cliff AHH. nice
I should hope it's worse then a normal roof jug.. Maybe with a rat trap inside and he's going to chew his fingers off to finish the proglem with just a thumb!!
Nice face! "aw damn how much more of this?"
Nice job.. i love the sun in the corner and not dead center like most people do.. good balance between the sky and land also.
not to be picky but don't campus problems involve no feet?
nice shot.. cool highlights on the clouds
Nope, close but you got the heel hooked.. Figure 4 you support that leg with your arm.. nice move anyway and works better in that situation anyway
she's doing that unsupported by the rope? if so kickkkass
Rob you gotta see the problem, it's crazy thats the first half.. another roof is past that lol...
i suppose i should label.. From Left to right TOP: James, Dom, Mike BOTTOM: Vanessa, Josh, Autumn, Jules, Rachel, and Grant
Lol... Jer steps up as the photographer/ OK i'm spotting now!
Ya.. whats with all that blur.. I know it goes static ;) lol jk good job
**ATTENTION** Coming to a Wal-Mart near YOU!
Would make a cleaner solo picture but if you are used to sport climbing then trailing a rope is no big deal. for me the balance issue of having the extra weight on my back wouldn't make me feel comfortable soloing
Nice job meg! (enigma you'd be wrong she's like 15)
It is.. taller people can skip the hold her right hand is on and just go for the 2nd then grab for the roof.. It is this called Dislocator roof V2
Nice kiddo.. they came out good.. glad you like 'em
That's one hell of a mantle move.... =c)
Ok, then i'll rephrase.. that's real sketchy... laying down flat and being careful.. ok.. non lockers.. i would change that
from the pic it looks bolted since he has like 16 draws and only 2 cams? the doubles throw you all off though.. wandering route? or really long and wanted to rap the whole thing in one.. i dunno
oooo.. :adds to must do list: gotta do a bit of training to get up to .11 level though
i love the face.. Hey! who u pointin that at!
HAHA i love the comment Nelson! Goooo Julia.. u put that cam in it's place!
Ya jOUles hehe RTL owns! hehe
Dangling Derek ;) nice shot..
Alderak it is prana .. i just got one tonight.. i was wondering where the pic was taken tho.. so SWEEEET
Quote: Anyone up for some slab dynos??" mmmm *SPLAT* goes up there next to belly flop contests from the high dive
Don't worry... touching rob is NOT on my list of things to do this year. Rob's pics need audio but an R rating for language and violence
I hope you're not talking about Rob..... :shudder:
"get up that rock marine!" OOOORAHHH
ya ya.. such a fun problem.. sharp crimpy (and i can do it..a big plus)
Nice job meg.. slopers and little feet..ew
Did she send that one? i can't throw high enough yet.
She's 5'3 and made that dyno? DAHHH i can get to right where she is and well u saw the rest
mmm hamstring tearing goodness... holy highstep batman
I was hoping for at least a patch.. maybe a hook too.. :P
10-Pinch 11? 12 not labeled!!! (8 and 12 are we talking 1-4 fingers wide or deep?) 8 i'd say would be more of a mono
Go grant!! wohooo
Those would be F-16's :) lol mmm jets are fun though.. nice pic..
It's called a Toe hook.. good to practice tho.. comes in handy
Jeeze get her all fired up why dontcha! nice job julia :)
LoL Did kelly bring his "crashpad" haha
Headline: Many ice climbers wounded from hissy fit from hell. hahaha (yea edge u dont have to lead all the time now)
hehehe ummmm you're almost outta gas dude!
that must have been messy.... looks like Tib exploded out of the skin. .owwwww
i agree with Think.. find a more crisp pic of you climbing and put that one on there instead.. then it would be really sweet
much better... good job the b/w its cool too
see.. someone probly said "i can do that scene outta Vertical limit.. watch!" AHHHH
See Rob, Ambler uses the backward hat to reduce wind resistance too...
Kman, read his thread.. it would be an easy add-on to a biner you already have..
'tis but a minor flesh wound! ;)
hey, quit ur smiling ur not to the top yet ;) hehe welcome to the crew molly
careful.. REI's gunna get a hold of those Trashbag Gaiters and you'll never get a cent!
Ah man now someone's gunna go diving for it and next thing we know "was wet for 5 years.. rope,cams,nuts,blah blah still good??" thread
nah you can see the rope kinda in the other one.. looks like a pretty badly equalized anchor tho..
Good job.. where's our cut? lol
I'm not a beer fan but i'll take one of them waffles .. and the climbing :o)
Guy 1: hey i'm done! guy2: hey move ur hand thats my heel hook! guy3: man, your shoes stank.. guy4: Hey, uhh guys.. can ya move it along i'm pumpin' out guy5: wow, i know this is a classic but jeesh!
uhhh typo there josh... i think the first part is class 4 scramble
Btw this is NOT whitehorse.. but i needed to link it and well i have no clue what part of the range i was looking at :)
Duck tagging along for moral support? heh cute
matt, they're katanas
Nice... it's such a kickass route..
Ahh.. ropegun in training.. i agree.. cool cool
haha that ain't right... :P
holy crimps D.. jeeesh
come on kel jump! hehe so close
meg making all the problems look like a joke i'm sure hehe nice send kiddo
Nice pic jules.
not a bad pic.. too bad the top got all overexposed with the sun.. fun lead too :)
nice pic gabe! cool lookin line too
crack lover? crack addict lol crazy route
face down.. with rope in front.. no chest harness.. looks painful
mmm i'll take the shiny ones on the right for 1000 alex
jeesh.. it's called APERTURE (ie f stop settings) changed the depth of field WITHOUT photo shop.. folks don't get there was photography before computers. nice pic.. cool crack
Nice pic Kate!
^^ i agree.. OR cut down the DoF so the background has more blur to focus more on the guy.. is still alright though.. more?
ready... set... GO! hehe gotta love Vic and her signature crash pad
Ohhhh dont worry about the cracks.. they are slab and really easy.. you dont even have to use crack technique with them... do it up!.. do Obi Won to the right of it also.. sweet routes
Nice shot.. maybe sillouette the climber a bit more?
Dab.. climber is clearly hypermobile in their joints.. leads to unnatural moves hehe sweet DOF
haha well written... i need a bit more training before hopping on this but it'll be fun to try
looks sweet.. gotta try that one..
beautiful shot... technical notes.. crop off the branch on the right.. and the bottom up to right above the path.. then it's a postcard worthy shot.. maybe a bit off the top to eliminate those darker clouds but not as bad.. it's all about balance. sky to ground and all that :)
hehe so much fun :)
yaaa julia.. flyin on High E
Isaacct.. it's perfectly positive for the regulars.. but pretty sharp for first timers :)
haha i forsee you getting short roped and yanked off the wall your next lead hahaha that route is pumpy enough as it is without getting pulled by your belayer too
it's not straight up and down at that point.. look at the other pics to figure out the steepness... it's 5.14c its gunna be impressive lol
haha nice pic sue.. got good luck with a sweet composition
of course ;)
yea.. ive watched it so many times hehe and ok you get one small right foot and a left foot flag but you're throwing right for the sidepull haha
that does look sweeeet
hehe probably the only 2 slopers at rumney!.. nice send
nice send K :)
jug haul ;)
cool route... it shoulda gone down without that hang Grrrr
yea.. white is an aweful color to wear when getting photographed.. my fault ;P
^^ it's not the crux.. nope
haha nice description jen.. :)
yea right.. heinous landing. plus half the stuff is bolted to be clipped from the ground
why didnt you go All the way! it's a cheapskate way of ticking .11 ;)
mm off width with no shirt.. bet you don't try that again
is burning a hole through the rock considered chipping? great eyes/focus
whatcha doin' there eh? climbin' on the rock by?
photo by kate aka BigEvilGrape
bit out of focus since the autofocus grabbed the rock instead of your face.. not bad for starting out
burundanga... thats definitely Yoda at Lower vadar... masterpiece is way more overhung and different looking
Nice shot.. looks like a crazy balance move
that looks fun! what's it near?
nice pic jo!
holy crap haha
ouch.... V2 my ass is right :P
haha that was so sweet.. great face
DAB!!! haha it works better in ur climbin shoes there joel
too bad it is so blurry... Great shot tho.. it's awesome they are still out there
yea.. that's about the easiest thing on there.. at a nice V5/6 :P and one hell of a toss at that.. with such a uh comfy landing
Yep.. looks like one of those Impressionist(right?) paintings?
Careful D, she bites
ive been told there is another way to do with without the toehooks but i'm not sure if it's any easier
:drools: i wish i coulda gone man :P
yea.. you can tell that he didnt go off the sloper.. his left hand is still down where it let go of the lower hold.. and problems dont get graded for the hell of it.. no matter how easy it looks on film it is V__ for a reason
that's an awesome shot Core.... NICE!
are you gunna be leading on those? just curious what you're gunna do when you have to clip. the CM's are have the arched shaft so they can be slung over your shoulder.. just a thought to keep in mind.. cool project tho gear is fun :)
Cotics it's Shist . Edit: Dave has been on it but didnt send. The bolting has also been redone much better
what u expect at parking lot wall hehe
thats a sweet shot of waimea alan... good job!.. lots of choices.. of 12a and higher :) (with like 3 11's and a 10d tossed in)
yes.. edge is old and his memory is like an etch a sketch.. one shake and it's gone ;)
I agree.. i havent seen a bad one either.. the thing is so sweet looking
Looks like the Gunks if you disregard the background
hehe nice Hil, you got one big piece of gear.. YOU! hehe just dont slip eh?
these are all sweet pics. they deserve to be bigger!
nice move.. i agree with pomattic.. crop off the photographers shadow at the bottom and it's sweet.. and doesnt take anything away
can i have a side of body tension with that move please? looks sweet
big wall? English? hmm
Nice job kiddo!
rope is the dark line below her chalk bag..
kickass pic.. the video rocks too.. whats it go at?
not sure exactly.. at least a year.. V3 boulderer mostly(at the time)
Cool J i was only lookin for estimate.... aww look at elvis all jealous and shit
Allez nOOOb!!! rAd YO!
the mountains are photoshopped! the real bonez would really never be outside actually climbing ;) hehe glad you got out man
Drilled by hand on lead ... i bet it's not very sport like.. nice pic
Nice pic lee!
HAHAHA good catch... DAB!!
that's a cool shot.. nice colors
wow... awesome capture of the size of the place..
that is awesome.. he's inspiring.. kicks the crap out of anyone's "i'm too old blah blah " excuse lol
maybe? it's just to the left of the trail you come up from the Overlook parking
what... no leopard crashpad? i thought that had it's own orbit around vic haha nice job :) (MR biased.. nahhhh)
did she do it in her slippers too? damn kids.. hiking everything with ease ;)
yea... not at all... if it was real then it would be a hand traverse and your feet would be below.. better luck next time eh?
hehe "ways to freak out ur 2nd # 184" :)
cool framing Hil
NICE SHOT!... great send meg.. (nice footwork.. couldnt have done better myself :) )
fun route :)
user name from R.A Salvatore? u rock hehe
i bet she'll be a strong climber when she grows up ;) lol nice send Vic as usual
nice.. i've touched it but havent got up enough to think about sticking it
...and pray you dont get short roped .. nice shot and great facial expression.. hehe
haha thats such a "lets do that again!" face
haha not a v4... it's like v1-2 the traverse finishing with that is v5.
wish you had used flash to fill in the dark spots.. rumney is hard to photo in most places cuz of that.. allez zeb
dern kids making the old hard stuff look like warmups
nice.. sharp focus... problem is like V4 to just look at lol (V6 if the blackflies are eating you alive)
Uhh.. that's High E.. not shockley's
does he have both hands off the belay while the guy is climbing? lol
from L-R J.. G on route..H sitting.. R.. J.. F...and my left hand :)
haha.. hanging voluntarily or involuntarily?
Nice, finally got on this last week.. such a fun route
HA! What exactly do you see? Take a trip up here and give it a go sans bolts.. don't mind the rock spikes for the landing if you blow it. (by the way the bolt at his feet is like the 5th one.. unprotected steep boulder start anyone?)
bonus points for being covered in chalk hehe allez eh?
awww Jess.. you should tell people when ur gunna come to Rumney :P Ive done that problem.. it's fun times but not in Wards book
haha Nice J.. you got the gear you might as well use it.. where's the #7 tri cam for good measure.. ya i know it wont fit in the crack.. just lay it on the ground it's bomber anyway
hehe was so much fun to watch.. good times :)
HA .. rapid fire rappelling :) (everyones shoes still on.. ouch)
They really don't think you need to stick clip that route...
ahh.. good to know that stick clip wont work as a fence..
hehe i remember that day.. was good times.. gabe froze his ass off .. fingerless gloves pshh aid climber ;)
cool shot hil
nice... is it spring yet? miss rumney already
hahaha he looks like when josh lowell was drinking beer at Priest Draw in Rampage
pshh totally bomber ;)
NICE! I need to get back and lead this.. crimps are smalllll nice job if you sent this.. even on TR it's solid.
Well done... in a few years she'll be warming up on your and everyone else's projects haha. nice send lil cassidy
Love that route.. nice lead. i agree the framing is cool
that's a box of Munchkins from Dunkins :)
hehe glad someone said it.. i'll add.. chalk for dry tooling.. hmmm interesting
well done. classic for sure
unrooted... it's not really but pretty fun
hey that's Jay.. i bet he got it.. he's one strong climber
Dennis you may not climb lots of hard stuff but DAMN you relax like .13b man. you should be sponsored by Crazy Creek or something ;) venture up north again. it stops raining sometimes. i swear
High E on your first day.. Nice. Interesting seldom seen view of the route too.
HAHAHAHA Nice .. i guess it's better than some poses eh?
what the hell... what do they eat? haha and why?!
That's The Gift.. and i need to figure out how to do the start of that problem :P
Nice.. my favorite 10d so far.. and i agree.. the pin is a waste of time.
yep.. gotta start somewhere.. good job katie
mark you would be correct.. It also looks alot shorter too. route is quite a toss. nice pic K
Nice josh. pulling that lip is tricky.. the slab is pretty cake at least.. tiff maybe it was your send energy following him ;)
yea.. i watched steve warm up on it one day.. it's really cool he still gets on it and walks it.
that looks like a sweet route.. nice job. even on TR
stick it? nice toss anyway.. 3 points off.. good times
haha tyler.. it's amazing he actually had his feet on the rock.. i didn't know he could climb like that..
left drop knee and right heel? owwww.. that cant feel good
haha something happened during the compression.. looks like an oil painting. interesting though
that's a cool shot!
Niceee... best climber car ever.. fold the seats down.. instant hotel. small mattress or thermarests and a blanket.. you're loving life
hell yea.. did the same move on Bonnies roof and Classic. gotta love kicking your feet off on trad jugs
nice.. i tried that route.. it's harrrd.
hehe whats the point if you're not going to do the last pitch?
that's a kickass shot D..
i agree.. that looks like the flakes of Limelight.. arrow is much whiter rock too
Nice shot.. good timing eh?
that's a nice shot phil.. sweet colors.
mehh.. left foot up.. right foot flagged out. heel hook just looks strenuous and a disaster if you fell :shudder:
Thats a great shot of Jolt.. nice send.. those chains are a welcome sight :)
hehe weird camera angle makes that look overhanging rather than the slab/vertical route it is
There is a route at the Gunks called Alley Oop. "original boulder start was over come by a 3 man shoulder stand" -swain guidebook. Well done guys.. old school for sure.
well done.. cool long exposure.. especially catching the star trails.
thats effing impressive..... damnn
hehe Easy Terms.. that flake is soooo good.
awesome lee.. well worth a headache ;)
if i've said it once i'll say it again.. James you are really really creepy.. you show up in EVERY picture of a girl.. honestly. Anyway, K interesting shot.. almost B/W. Cya down at the Woods this fall eh?
hehe looks like a shot i took last summer [url]/images/photos/assets//8/10598-medium_77882.jpg[/url]
Umm, You're not on Bolt Line, that looks like you are on the 5.5 trad route. bolt line is further left up the slab
:shudder: that just ain't right... someone should post that at Metro 0:)
nice!.. awesome route. i gotta get back on that.
I followed that on the hottest day ive been at the gunks.. in BOREALS eff me.. had to double up on the crimping and forget that my feet were a)sliding in my shoes b) sliding off the smears. NICE HELMET! i have that one too :)
The view driving in always gets me psyched to climb. Welcome to the Gunks.
yay dookie! congrats chica :)
awesome pic k.. hope things are going well for ya.
haha you're a goober i wanna ski this year :(
ha.. thats right in the alcove at Venus wall.. :sigh: miss rumney.. damn Job
Obi Won Ryobi 5.9+ great route.. super classic
thats the arete as you walk into the warm up area right? if so it's Scared for Life v0(TK jr grade) fun problem. committing top out eh ;)
Nice shot.. kind of a different angle than most get
Well done! i followed my friend on that and it earns it's +.
holy cluster fuck batman
Nice send Van.. becoming quite the traddy eh?
Nice... 8 hours is a proud time man.. me and grape tried to do it as a 3 day and didnt plan very well and got shut down after madison(burly hike with a pack)
HA.. i knew i recognized that picture.. that's the shot right before(?) the one in the bouldering guide ;). Cool effects Tim..
Nice shot Alan...
Hell yea.. I love this perspective.. shows how thin that fin is haha
that last step's a long one ;)
it's a Big ass hotel.. makes the approach mostly paved though haha
Not surprising for someone with such small biceps....
Make the butterfly a Figure 8 on a bight.. connect that other strand to something solid and it looks ok to me..
Yea man.. http://www.norope.com/images/BISHOP/Atari_Arete_V6@@Mike_Hartley@@Bob_Otto.jpg
this is Atari
why's that look more like Andrew traverse to me?
looks better.. sized too small though
ooo gun show.... ;)
That's Obi Won btw.. yoda is one route to the left
As good as Obi Won it is not.
Nuthatch at Jimmy?
Nice chester.. hope you and abby had a good time
So China beach to end of Livin astro? interesting.
Cool! i didn't notice that either when i was up there last year.. i thought of bouldering on it but it looked pretty chossy and rocky landing.. no thanks
Too bad the weather wasn't nicer.. that would be a sweeter back drop of half dome.
Was this Thursday 8/2 ? I think i met him swimming in the river.. hot day to be on waimea
Nice Mark! is that a knee bar in shorts too? ouch
hell yea.. such a sweet route.. i need to lead this one
Hey.. thats how you get stronger.. Apollo is a cool looking route
I thought Andrew's problem went at V4..
I like the detail you got in the rock.. but the PS'd grey "sky" area looks like shit .. why not leave it be?
clearly Letolives prefers to be the cradle robber as seen in his other comments today.
haha no one ever posts pics of them falling off that.. good for you to own up.. better luck next time.
Hell yea.. Cereal killer rocks. Such a good route!
did you really need to upload the whole process? :shrug:
Hell yea Cumpy! nice send man
:poke poke: does that hurt? :)
shouldn't smoke in bed.. thats how house fires start ;)
nice.. is that derek spotting?
Draws were placed on lead.
across yea.. 1/4 pad deep though.. with a might as well not be there starting foot hold
rock... CLIMBING... .com ?
dumbass nOOb. go dry tool on some choss pile not on a real route. see that green shit wall behind you.. go climb that
Deck on Obi you will not. Filled with jugs it is. :)
I need to get back on this.. i one hung it on TR a while back and haven't tried since. Crimmmpayyy
yes you will. My thoughts: all 5? draws on the left. rest more at the middle jug. sendage
Nice flaggin' tiff :)
Nice.. do Sky Pilot next to it.. that is a fun route. I need to get on PUTV one of these days
Uhh.. it's Shist not Gneiss and it generally doesn't take pro very well.. pretty soft shit. The people who bolt things at rumney tend to also climb very hard trad. I'm sure they know what should be bolted and not. I'll point this pic out to Mark and see what he thinks about it ;)
I agree with myxomatosis.... he's tied in and getting ready to go.. he's wearing testarossas.. not exactly the shoe to be sitting there belaying in. cool looking route
Ben.. let the girl in the picture man! ;)
well done.. it's a fun one.
Dammit bring that here to the US.. looks freaking sweet
Maybe you shoulda worn something more slinky.. like a sports bra :) gotta dress for success
..taken shortly prior to some crusty trad guy bashing him over the head with a #11 hex ;)
K did you send yet??
and a massive amount of slack out lol. high first bolt =intended stick clip
Yaaaaa go Allison :)
Discrete TR tension ftw!
douches like you will get that policy canceled.. not to mention everything gets saved in the computer and they will see a pattern
that is some solid spotting by jon and I.. you got it meg. no worries ;)
I wouldn't think a "guide" would be scared of an .8 dubbed "good route to break into the grade". And if you're afraid of decking why did you extend all 3 pieces you placed?
I imagine Simple Minds in the background with the bandana and fingerless gloves.
Not a send if you don't make it to the top o.O
"my third of fourth send"
you're hanging from a mid way bolt.. how exactly are you sending?
B/W does not make it better when the contrast sucks.
again.. it's a pile of grey.. you probably had a kickass blue sky but you killed it.
