Wow that breast comment is bold

Isn't there pro under your feet in that pic? Thats surely not 50 feet up yet. It's a good lookin pic though...

View this Photo
Why is the picture sideways?

View this Photo
I thought she was my wife?

View this Photo
I thought the pro was good... fun lead, but I couldn't find the rap station?

View this Photo
Definately not the largest rock outcropping in PA, but the picture looks good.

View this Photo
Great facial expression. Could be zoomed out more to see her hand. I always shoot a little more zoomed out than I think I should, because then you can always come back in later and crop out the extra.

View this Photo
Yeah I noticed the same thing about the quickdraws.... at first I thought he had both ends clipped to his harness. A shot this good should get the extra time required to go around the draws and not just blur them out.

View this Photo
Why is the belayer standing so far away? Are you trying to pull test the bolt?

View this Photo
Yeah, too bad there's no "anchor bolts" to toprope a V7 boulder problem. You just can't trust trees and slung boulders these days for anchors.

FA haha

Does the route go to the top? Is there a reasonable descent? That would be real cool!

View this Photo
Cool pic and awesome route name!

View this Photo
nice rack

View this Photo
I would like to see the color shot!

View this Photo
Wow 3rd ascent, thats cool! What's it go at?

View this Photo
WTF is a spotter gonna do besides get hurt? Better just to stand by with cell phone in hand....

View this Photo
1 out of 5 stars Oooo Oooo Look at me!

View this Photo
Yeah, I was thinking A0, but seeing those two draws about to crossload has to make it at least A1+

View this Photo
do you place any pro or even belay here, or do you just jump off the opposite side your partner falls!?

View this Photo
The only thing worth making fun of is that random hand holding your foot.

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars Yeah easily a 4 star without the excessive blur. I'd re-post it with less PSing.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Definately front page material!

View this Photo
What are you talking about j_ung, thats an FA man!

View this Photo
Looks alot like the delaware water gap.

View this Photo
Is that orange lichen or spraypaint?!

View this Photo
This is in the classifieds listed as a painting of Red Rocks, NV. Where is it actually?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars When I saw it I said the same, and then again when I topped out!

View this Photo
I really hope you don't think you have the FA's to these lines. HAHA

View this Photo
Yeah, Majid, I have a new respect for you, especially since you drive a WVO Yota. How did you get a diesel cruiser in the states?

View this Photo
Watch out... it's the RC.com fashion police! You're not cool unless you wear prana capris and downturned toe-crushers.

View this Photo
Yeah it seems like that collar would cause more leverage, due to the longer moment arm. I can see how it would help distribute the epoxy more evenly though... is that the point?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Yeah, too much photoshop on the rope, could be a great shot otherwise...

View this Photo
I like the absence of chalk. It keeps the photo very natural looking, and keeps the rock from looking like a gym! Good form!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars The girl I took up that thing wasn't going to go up top, because she was too scared. 2 mins later she went up there and stood one footed for the camera!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Yeah, more like 300 feet, with over 500 feet of exposure over the meandering canyons. What an amazing place to be. Magnus, did you notice the top block is completely detached from the rest of the formation? If you stand with your feet on both sides, you can rock it back and forth!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Hey bill, what upset you about the block comment? Are you thinking twice about climbing it?

View this Photo
That boulder is actually called pulpit rock. It says it down on the kiosk in the parking lot.

View this Photo
I'm confused...Is there a piece at your waist?

View this Photo
A classic shot on a classic line!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Looks like fun!

View this Photo
I believe that climb is called Marge's curves. If you stand back a little farther, the two cracks resemble the outline of a woman.

View this Photo
Pretty cool, but I'm not sure what the angles are showing... can you give a little explanation?

View this Photo
Ok cool, and the leading edge cam angle gets much larger, thus reducing the holding power?

View this Photo
1 out of 5 stars This is rediculous.

Like J_ung said, it's no harder to triple than a standard trad-draw. I can do it one handed fairly easily. Why do you want the "little extra loop" J_ung? For fear that the cam's cable could cut the sling?

These are nice because you can place and clip them when you are super pumped, and then extend them whenever you feel comfortable. No unclipping and reclipping to extend them. Even when they are tripled, they walk less than with the stiff standard 4" sling.

View this Photo
What rack? It's all quickdraws...

View this Photo
Who makes those crazy slings?

View this Photo
That cactus topout looks nasty!

View this Photo
1 out of 5 stars Nice chalk

View this Photo
Wow, awesome rock. So did he have to downclimb it?

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Be careful and park far away. It is illegal to swim there, and it gets busted every few weeks. A drunk man died jumping off the cliff and ever since then they have cracked down on swimming. I try to stay dry until I leave in case they show up again. Putting it up on this site wasn't the best idea either...

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Watch that rope behind your leg! We just saw a guy flip upside down and smack his head because of that.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars It gets patrolled a lot more in the summer heat, and on popular days (weekends, holidays). The death is what started the heavy patrolling.

View this Photo
If that is another staple to the left, another quicklink could be used to add it to the system. What's with the rediculously expensive and complex anchor system connected to old anchors via mild-steel quicklinks? I'd rather fat new stainless bolts and cheap, replaceable chain. Those crappy top quicklinks should be stainless if you're going to dump all that money into the rest of it.

View this Photo
Wow, that looks a little precarious! What is your anchor made of? Can it be hauled manually or do you use some sort of winch?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Yeah that cam is sketchy. Maybe it got disturbed while you were laying down!

View this Photo
The only bolt I can see looks like the biner is about to unclip itself!

View this Photo
If it is .8m at the widest, you should be able to stem up the whole 120 meters! The top out might be nasty with all that moss though...

View this Photo
Wow, that's a pretty line, but I'm surprised to see so many bolts. No gear? Where is this at?

View this Photo
What is going on in this picture? Sneakers? Locker, sling, random knots?

View this Photo
That waterfall is totally getting mastered!

View this Photo
Wow, what kind of rap setup is that?

View this Photo
Thanks!

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I'm a little confused... you have a rope tied to you from below, but have no gear. Are you soloing to set up a toprope?

View this Photo
The crack on the left is called Crackshot, a classic 3 pitch 5.7 handcrack.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars This climb is actually called Kamakazie crack, but many people call it the Whaleback crack, since it is often the only thing people will climb here. The face to the left is a great climb as well.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars What route is that Jerod? Classic shot!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Looking again, where is your rope?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars He looks like a natural, keep up the encouragement!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Wow, awesome beta! Why didn't I think of that? I can't wait to go send this thing finally!

View this Photo
you have big hands

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Yeah, he's leading... but I still can't see a rope

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Wow, where did you get all this secret beta? I wish there was a picture like this for every climb. I hate not knowing where the grips are!

View this Photo
Hell yeah, if it's still there after all this time, it must be bomber.

1 out of 5 stars Between a man and a woman, there's no battle for my attention!

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Wow what a clusterf*ck

View this Photo
Duh...It's team climbing. The are obviously no good handholds or feet once you get into this position, so your buddy gives you an ass boost.

View this Photo
yeah, you might want to fix that quick before you climb past it...

View this Photo
Why is there a hold glued on? Did it break off?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Wow, I don't know where to start!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars ouch, that must have hurt so much. You think he'll stop carrying ham samiches on the tradz?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Since you admitted it was staged, I'll bump up my vote. It is a great example of a bad belay !

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars 5 Star shot for sure. The crashpad creates good perspective, but I agree the shot would look better without it.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Nice pic, but I think it looks better turned 180 degrees upside down. I think this way would look a little better if it was cropped in a little further, with less background (trees).

View this Photo
Yep, that's definitely a man

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I like the scattered patches of moss. Looks like it sees very little traffic and would be a awesome place to explore! Kinda reminds me of the hallways at lost city in a way...

View this Photo
Leading that thing without a helmet looks like a disaster waiting to happen!

View this Photo
The crux beta is to use the chalked hold. It's kinda hard to see on that orange and black rock, so someone should make a big tick mark on it.

View this Photo
Who does that look like?

View this Photo
I didn't even notice that the crack was bolted. Is there any trad climbing in Thailand?

View this Photo
Yes, it is MJ

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Yeah, there shouldn't be any pain with that much rope out. Nice shot.

View this Photo
1 out of 5 stars Bad move posting this. This is why so many areas are closed, and why I refuse to give beta to sensitive areas online.

You seriously think relocating is few snakes if going to make a difference? The Lehigh Gorge is PACKED with copperheads and rattlesnakes. If you relocate those guys, new ones will move in within a day or two. Don't waste your time or the rescuers (when you get bit).
