4 out of 5 stars I met ellen at ceuse - and then her husband at maple - random - anyway, does this wall get direct light? maybe you could get above a climber and get them coming out of the depression...good pic anyway though -

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars wow

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars looks cold.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars very kool -

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars I'm confused

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars good shot, I've seen a more interesting tree before though -

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars funny

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars rad area - tough to get good light?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars it's been a while - sweet routes on that wall

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars rad

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars when's a good season there? looks rad

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars i don't usually vote on anything ice or mountaineering but this shot is pretty kool - kinda creepy...there's a better word for it though

View this Photo
yeah, great contrast

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars color!

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars can't see enough of the climber - although some beholders might see the beauty in the grafitti, i think it's ugly

View this Photo
too much light in the background

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars looks kool

View this Photo
sci-fi adventure

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars that's kool - i like how it works without too much happening

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I like the composition - the focus and the look of the subject is great,

but I personally can't stand that banana bag -

View this Photo
I'm so confused

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I like it - I'm wondering what it looks like with more of him in the frame -

View this Photo
sweet -

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars I'm waiting to see his face and get an expression - angle?

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars washed out back there

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars real climbing is the best

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars i like it

View this Photo
if this is real, awesome - if not, humorous

View this Photo
yeah, i'm still wanting to see what else is going on with your movement -

View this Photo
late season - still looks cold

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars i like the idea - i'd like to see the sun highlighting his face, and/or his foot unobstructed by the draw/rope since that is where his focus leads to

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars i'm trying not to believe the orientation, it's working -

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars point kalcario for recognizing the relationship between the amount of gear on a harness and how rad the climber in that harness is...

View this Photo
what scale does that comparison come from?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars ...sigh...

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars you got me with this one - great shot

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars that looks like fun

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars he's core

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars kool shot - can you lighten his face at all?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars wild

View this Photo
can i get a picture of this guy throwing a heel hook please

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars rad

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars ahh! what's wrong with his hip?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars hope he doesn't pull down the wall

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars great expression, good composition

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars dumbest ever???...how'd you lose that leg again?

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars a little bright on the hand and dark on the leg

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars to me, the position of the climber resembles the structure of the rock - good shot - but does he have socks on??? ha -

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars good stuff

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars looks big

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars definitely a photogenic problem- Jorg took a good shot of this route from across the canyon a while back -this one is really good too -

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars why'd you choose to crop it this way?

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars there's a lot of distraccting crap underneath him -

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars point BVB, but it's still a distraction to the otherwise good picture

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars no dude, they're called bottles and cans and plastic bags

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Raaaaaaddd

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars i like the look - I think people tend to automatically discard anything like this but I think it can look rad when it's not a ridiculous contrast of BW to the colors - like here - I've done something similar with one

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars it's that car from that commercial! the stories are true -

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars harsh flash

View this Photo
what's this throw all about?
he looks like he's gunn'n for it pretty far -

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars there's potential for this picture/scene - didn't quite get there though IMO -

View this Photo
maybe a 73 degree turn would be best. to the side.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars dude, you know how they are - and you're right, this definetly deserves a 5 ...joking, much better than that - interesting moment of focus, kind of spans across the picture - and good looking colors in terms of rock and climber -

View this Photo
looks blue

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Venga!

View this Photo
nuts

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars good perspective

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Rad

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars yup, great scene- wish you'd get rid of the ad at the bottom - leave it in the description

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars wow, does that climb get it's name from that lightning bolt on the rock???

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars kool position

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars spectacular

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars cut your hair Kenny - you hippie.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars looks rad -

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Yeah - Bishop is awesome huh -

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars too bad the climber didn't come out as nice as the colors on that rock (right)

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars interesting

View this Photo

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars hot water kills

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars seriously? what comes next?

View this Photo
without the heel hook it might be harder to find those feet below...

View this Photo
yeah, the first thing I do on a climb I can walk off after I solo is wear a pack.

View this Photo
but you wish he was nekked

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars a great shot

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars sweet moment

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars the light on the main rock seems intense - ?

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars woah - pad pad hat. or, hat pad pad.

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars looks hard - and with tennis shoes! this guy is incredible.

View this Photo

Nice!

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars unique - good shot

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars boring.

View this Photo
did you just get lucky with the blur running into the rock streaks so well or did you see it first (it even changes direction as the rock does!)? -

sweet shot dude

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars movement of the hair makes the shot

View this Photo
anyone know of areas that are sometimes colored like this out west?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars cool

View this Photo
way to keep at it!
but is that metal? how does it treat the crack?

View this Photo
cool framing with the focus

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Becky - hurry up and knit me some underwear.

View this Photo
good intense shot

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars that's pretty cool

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars this picture stood out immediately to me - I think it's an awesome shot

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars *sigh*

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars I get more out of the ad from this one

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars kudos

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Made this one look pretty sweet

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars nice

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I agree - good sense of scene in this shot - anything in the area a little higher off the ground?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars rad

View this Photo
yanking on the rope for good measure I suppose -

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars sweet

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars super sharp

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars *sigh*

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars i like it

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars good shot

View this Photo
needs a bright outfit

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars black shirt black hair - where'd his head go?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars good setting

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars it almost looks like he's laying down -

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars ambience

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars looks cool

View this Photo
when in doubt - just throw.

View this Photo
yeah - re-submit with more color

View this Photo
colors - skin, rock & stripe - caught my attention

View this Photo
you found the best angle for this shot

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars nice

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars blue eyes shining through - offset angle is cool

p.s. I like the style you've picked up with the web-ad -
how'd it look below the crack?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I like it as it is better than rotated (unnatural) - nice shot - what the heck is he tossing to???

View this Photo
looks fun

View this Photo
the photoshop idea works well - cool shot

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars better without the anchor anyway.

View this Photo
they're there

View this Photo
apparently it wasn't originally named "the cube"

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars sweet shot - bright on the skin?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars reflector?

View this Photo
it's all limestone at the Hood - as is, it goes at 14a - so I wouldn't say it's easy.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I would like to see a little more of Los, but it's a cool shot nonetheless

View this Photo
Thanks - I was behind the lense. But yeah, it's a good warm-up if you can keep your heel on.

View this Photo
cool shot -
what's causing the distortion?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars wow

View this Photo
i edited it to note where not to start a campfire.

View this Photo
nice!

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars I like it, great colors, but a little too cropped?

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars laughing

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars yeah, really good.

View this Photo
thanks. yeah that's her name. Out of Arizona. I expect she's in the new kids of climbing calendar.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars cool shot

View this Photo
a little dark - I lost a bit in the compression too.

View this Photo
thanks -

she's facing generally west (where the sun is setting) - the sun's light is hitting other formations behind her which is then reflecting onto the rock outside of the cave - inside the cave isn't getting as much fill light, and, below her, the forest has blocked most of the same light from hitting the base of the wall.
re: carabiner - I'm assuming you're referring to the white spot - actually, that's a large cobble with a lot of chalk on it - looks slightly distorted because of the compression - but (as I just checked) it is clear in the original photo.

View this Photo
it's what he told me.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars really cool

View this Photo
great shot

View this Photo
solo?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Wilder is rad.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I like how the brightness below is actually working for this shot

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars really cool light

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars that looks rad - good (choice of?) colors

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars nice

View this Photo
if by "real" you mean glass, then no -

thanks for the input though, looking at it now I agree -

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars wow, all kinds of shit going on here. really cool

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars great climb- better as one pitch

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars yeah, really cool looking

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars cool looking shot -

View this Photo
how sharp is he w/o the compression?

I like it - but it might be better cropped (the background in the bottom half is much nicer than the top)

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars feels cluttered

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars cool rock coloring

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars rad.

View this Photo
catching color

View this Photo
I second sungam

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars wow - there was a pad there??? nice on that too -

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars so confused...

so awed

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars yeah

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars niiicceee

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars while you're passing em out...send some my way.

View this Photo
biiiiigggggggggeeeeeerrrrrrrrr

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars rad shot

View this Photo
weird - cool

View this Photo
aren't there better uses for that?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars looks pretty sweet

View this Photo
he's orange. does he fake-n-bake?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars the stars are for the cool scene and the daydreaming that this shot provoked.

View this Photo
wrong angle?

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars your sisters are hot!

View this Photo
I second Pyrosis

View this Photo
I'd like to see some feet

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars this is rad

View this Photo
the foot bothers me too

View this Photo
I like this angle better - you gain more from the feet - good idea with the flash on this scene

View this Photo
the shape of the rock is cool

View this Photo
I think it'll be good to keep pushing this kind of shot

View this Photo
where in Tahoe?

View this Photo
the tree's just chillin

View this Photo
it's the moon - he fell a couple moves higher, but he was looking really strong

View this Photo
nice shot

View this Photo
that lense seems to be pretty sweet

View this Photo
What are you're going for here?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars this picture...??? seriously?

View this Photo
just my hands and feet, and you have to down-climb. Scariest part was stopping half-way up when the maintenance truck drove past and parked right there. All the sudden I had to stop and think about things other than moving.

View this Photo
crazy how he's holding himself in with one foot

View this Photo
He got on it once, fell - ticked a lock, rapped down and then sent it next go. Maybe you don't like ticking, but sending that crack on a second go is *not* lame.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars nice shot

View this Photo
makes that move look huge - still another hard move to come...it seems to me like most shots at Joe's are better warm

View this Photo
awesome ice

View this Photo
The two pieces of rock are actually a lot different -

View this Photo
cool -

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I'll give you 5 stars just for giving yourself 5 stars.

View this Photo
Forgive my ignorance, but I don't understand your title.

View this Photo
castle rock

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars looks rad

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I like the perspective as it is - but a bit brighter on the climber could be a good idea - nice shot

View this Photo
classic movie - nice shot

View this Photo
(in response to james) - he does get kind of lost in the bushes below, so busy back there - if his hair had been in a patch of snow it might've almost looked like it's own bush...that might've worked better - those two fingers are also blown-out and neither of the feet quite made it -

View this Photo
that's cool

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars caught me quickly

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I like the thought - and camping in the kitchen is pretty hard core too.

View this Photo
looks good - maybe get rid of that extra rope

View this Photo
makes my hands sweat

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars way better than a shot of this climb in a recent ad I saw - this climb is easy though, I grey-point flashed it. Just sayin.

View this Photo
you should tag this with "mustache" too

View this Photo
looks good

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars 2 months

View this Photo
pac man.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars pleasing

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars the composition caught my eye - a bit more light on his face would be nice

View this Photo
how many boulders are in this area?

View this Photo
yeah, what a crappy intro

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I'm into it

View this Photo
another form of meditation battles? I like this interesting shot -

View this Photo
looks good

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Perfect-Pad-Placement.

View this Photo
looks recently familiar
http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos/Sport/At_the_Crux_88401.html

View this Photo
cropped too tight beneath him - otherwise I like it

View this Photo
cool - too many sams though - and not enough top-outs

View this Photo
holy shit, OK has hills and shit?

View this Photo
I'm not one to go freeze myself, but this shot is cool

View this Photo
yeah, striking

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Cool how she comes out so crisp - also, this is a new look for you -

View this Photo
oh man, but even the thought of those desert star scenes...[drool]

View this Photo
yesssss

View this Photo
no way - the hat sucks and she should be smacked for wearing it.

View this Photo
that's cool

View this Photo
bolts are great - weather was way too hot in august though

View this Photo
whatever angle joe's talking about - it looks cool

View this Photo
way ahead of me this time on the mustache tag. awesome.

View this Photo
Definitely Yangshuo - clear day though

View this Photo
yeah, cool bizarre

View this Photo
Teamwork for real.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars fuck the spotter.
