Nice Photo!

This would be a good picture if it wasn't tilted.

View this Photo
Rotate?

View this Photo
Oh it's off in the Arizona Outback... Their is at least a mile long band of Quartzite here.You have to rap in and climb out......

View this Photo
That stuff is solid. You just have to clean off all the stuff that fractured off in the last 100+ million years.The rock is way harder than the granite around here.

View this Photo
I'm not going to waist my time.

View this Photo
he's right above the fixed tri-cam.

View this Photo
I'm guessing it's a silent moment....

View this Photo
Hell yeah!! I got to go climb that thing.

View this Photo
Nice!!

View this Photo
Thats some funnie shit.

View this Photo
He's taking the picture. Theirs no gear so no need for a belay untill I get like 30 feet up. It's 5.8R Dude.

View this Photo
hell yeah!!!!!Looks like shes just warming up.

View this Photo
You must be wrong. He's gonna headpoint it because its so run out.jk

That thing worked just fine for rapping off. I think their was a old leaper next to it.

View this Photo
Its a Euro trad route.

View this Photo
I'm sorry you struggle on 10a....

View this Photo
That thing is fun!!!

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Damn I missed the old army surplus pin but found the knifeblade.

View this Photo
Woohaaa nice steep Granite. Looks like a blast to climb on...

View this Photo
just as long as you guys arn't gay .....

View this Photo
It's not that big.Maybe a small basketball.

View this Photo
That 1/4 incher is like 30 yards from that, over bolted belay station..... Lost Nutz could go free by the use of a winch..

View this Photo
It would suck to have somone rapping the route while your climbing up. They might knock loose some of those blocks on the 2nd pitch.

View this Photo
Looks like a long approach.

View this Photo
ah man the truck is way out their.

View this Photo
looks like a nice climb. I'm gonna have to give it a try next time im in the area.

View this Photo
Check out that UFO. I think their going to rap bolt some routes.

View this Photo
who needs a belayer?

View this Photo
its an awsome view.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Classic!!

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars It looks like your roped up on a hill of scree.And it looks like your having a fun old time.

View this Photo
No way I don't trick out photos. Thats like aid climbing.

View this Photo
Yeah it was great. I liked the chossy foot hold thats gonna break off up higher.

View this Photo
I think I got like the fifth accent. The fa was in 65 The second accent was in 70. the third was made by AMC members in 72. And then Jim Waugh had made the forth in 87.

View this Photo
I took this photo my self louisiana... It's only like 150'

View this Photo
looks like your up high.

View this Photo
Nice!

View this Photo
Whanna go do the Southwest face sometime?

The west ridge you see here is 1500 feet, its 5.6. F.A. 1957 Dick long & friends. Sourhwest face is 1200 ft its 10c. F.A. 1959 Warren Harding, Glen Denny And Herb Swedlund

View this Photo
Thats Awsome that reminds me of this kid with his dad this summer in the ten pins of the Needles of S.Dak. The kid was like 5 yrs old and he was sporting a full body harness and was racking up to lead a easy crack.

View this Photo
I think I've seen that drill stashed under a bush before at some obscure crag in AZ. Looks like a Hilti

View this Photo
Nice butt shot!

View this Photo
Yeah thats SuperSexy what ur #.

View this Photo
Nice photo! Thats a really fun 11a.

View this Photo
That route kicks ass!

View this Photo
nope It's Rumplestiltskin see the heal toe cam/ arm bar rest.

View this Photo
Damn that blade is solid....Next time you do it go straight up from that bomber pro.

View this Photo
fuckinA ouch. I got a nice rope burn years ago on my first whipper. I fell like 20 feet. I seen the rope layed flat in the air and than in a panic grabed the rope. I think that was my most memerable wipper.

View this Photo
Hell yeah!

View this Photo
Yeah I think I NEED a house on top of that rock.

View this Photo
Isn't that almost to small of a boulder for your likes.

View this Photo
sorry bro thats the climb to the left of dead pool.But its still a nice pic.

View this Photo
Damn you guys must have been smoked.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I climb with that guy every so often.

View this Photo
This isn't trad enough to submit as medium.

View this Photo
Is top rope Trad? Dude something is wrong with your camera.

View this Photo
You girls are CRAZY!!!!

View this Photo
That thing is fun!!!

View this Photo
I told my self I would jump in 10 seconds and then cut the count down to 5 seconds. It's a rush man.I want to do it again but I bet its never as good as the first time...

View this Photo
You got Mail!

View this Photo
Crazy looking rock.Looks like mud/Conglomerate?

View this Photo
Woha I think I was checking out that line before it had bolts. Right on Looks like fun!!!!!!

View this Photo
Freeking Awsome...I love the fall. Great pic man. Next time pour some cold water on them and yell time to climb Beotch...

View this Photo
Crazy theirs new 1/4 inchers in the McDowells. Ed eventually it will have to be rebolted.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Thats a nice V0- boulder problem.

View this Photo
9+/10-

View this Photo
Thats Totem Pole In the Eiger Sanction. It don't even look close to the same

View this Photo
Actually it was a nice day in March.

View this Photo
H is strong man. I think shes freeking hardcore pulling down on 11+.

View this Photo
Sweet! I wounder where are the Pockets of Resistance are?

View this Photo
Nice fall Aaron!!!

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Nice! But we want higher resolution.

View this Photo
yep

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Redpoint? This climb needs a death block removed. And a good crowbaring. Also the third or forth bolt is in a crap flake. I think the climb to the left is way higher quality.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Thats a fun 3 star crack!

View this Photo
5.11c/d? I thought it felt 10+ on the first pitch and 11- on the last pitch. I guess I will have to go back and see if it feels harder.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars I didn't have a crowbar. Plus it's your route.

View this Photo
The problem actually faces the other way.

View this Photo
Dude I think I see Sharma. Lower me!!

View this Photo
You should have bootyed his chalk bag.

View this Photo
Yes it is water.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Anybody who lowers off the old manky bolt before the offwidth is a wanker.

View this Photo
Yep Dale redpointed Shalayly Direct......

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Nice spot Aaron. Actually hes like a third crash pad.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Not that night. I fell off and almost hurt myself.

View this Photo
Wow benpullin you are observent. He is clipping original equipment. Their is a retro bolt next to his knee.

View this Photo
I think my belayer was doing a fine job! It was 100+ degrees on the wall, and he was baking in direct sunlight.

View this Photo
When I did third times a charm we did it in one pitch. I guess you needed a smoke before that 5.10 move.

View this Photo
Epic Ed, Are you gonna have her leading A5 pitches soon? Nice RC.com shirt!

View this Photo
Looks like fun blasted rock!

View this Photo
Nice Picture! I think pitons have more of a impact on the rock.

View this Photo
Solo climbing is climbing in it's purest form. Are you avoiding reality? Hey if your ever out here jump on Hard Driving. Its first pitch is great for 5.9 leaders. And besure to down climb the 5.6 squeeze chimney.

View this Photo
I thought the route to the right with the fixed pin was harder then this climb. This thing felt 5.10. Also my buddy broke off the flake/block your right foot is on. It flew right over my head by about 6 inches ....

View this Photo
looks lovely

View this Photo
You guys should run up the tower. It's classic. I need to get my hands on Superstition Select so I can get back on more Choss routes.

View this Photo
looks rather chossy

View this Photo
Nice picture. Ready for some Hard Drivin'?

View this Photo
Hahahaha, That's not Bobbies Rock.

View this Photo
I think that is Unsanitary GQ.

View this Photo
Also the button heads have since been replaced with glue ins.

View this Photo
Nice, But you better get to walking because in another 15 mins the park is closed.

View this Photo
It's probably only rated 5.11.

View this Photo
Nice gray alien Kelly. How can you forget your helmet on a 30 foot 5.4. This girl should be leading 5.9s with a helmet on.

View this Photo
Did you lose a #1 camalot up their sed? Most people I know skip those glue ins.

View this Photo
Nice Lead!!!! I've always wanted to do that thing. I agree with Jon. It looks way steeper than that from the road.

View this Photo
you guys fucking rock!!!!!!

View this Photo
sick, you can see the roof Bellavista goes through!!!

View this Photo
Looks awsome !!! To bad the LDS church has cut up all those boulders in LCC.

View this Photo
I think my mom said something like that when she seen this picture.

View this Photo
I think it would be a pack that contains bolting gear.

View this Photo
New route on CPR Nice!!! Also love the 1 inch tubular webbing and the oval biner.

View this Photo
Looks like he found himself some good climbing shoes.

View this Photo
How did the wet soft sandstone drill?

View this Photo
looks like bomber rock!!! It don't look to runout to me.

View this Photo
Maybe it's called Pocket Pulling Pansies On Parade 5.9+?

View this Photo
looks easy

View this Photo
looks nice and green.

View this Photo
It was taken from the top of the cliff.

View this Photo
I think retro bolts are always in bad style. When will some climbers start to respect the acomplishments of other climbers.

View this Photo
This was a good climb. I only wish it had more 5.10 pitches. Do you like rosin climblouisiana?

View this Photo
Aarons new find? I climbed on that chossy rock years ago.

View this Photo
I don't think I need to. I was all over South Mtn before Aaron ever climbed. South Mtn is where I started to climb back in the late 90s.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Looks like the kids are happy.You can see the 10b/c crossover in the background.

View this Photo
Check out my booty hexes from Slammer Jam.

View this Photo
8 feet isn't kinda highball. I think 12 to 15 feet as kinda highball.

View this Photo
Did you get that problem yet? I'd say its V3

View this Photo
What route is this?

View this Photo
Well if its harder then 5.10 and it's classic. It should smell like piss. What do I win?

This picture makes Fear of Flying look easy.

View this Photo
nice looking climb. There is a boulder problem in sedona Az that looks like that route.

View this Photo
CHOSS

View this Photo
You seen me on Sidewinder. And you cleaned it three times for me.Headpointing is easier than trying to Onsite. Don't forget to add Lost Nuts 5.12b** and Scar Wars 5.12a** to the list of Pinnacle Peak Classics. Every 5.11 trad climber in Phoenix should get on Deep Freeze and Fist Grease if out in the McDowells. And all the climbs climblouisiana listed if out at Pinnacle Peak.

View this Photo
Not to much grunting on Remission from what I remember...............

View this Photo
Buckawwwkkk!!!

View this Photo
At least it's not closed for 10 years like Pinnacle Peak was.

View this Photo
I wonder if the ghoul will ever make it to ORG?????

View this Photo
Deliverance 5.11c. It was originally rated 5.12. Later ascents confirmed it was only 5.11c.

View this Photo
It's only 1% of the actual height that I like.

View this Photo
I also at first glance thought it looked like "The Grotto". But I remember a bigger overhang at the top.Devils Tower always seems to look more symmetric.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I thought he climbed it in April. There was no sign of it being climbed when I did it.

View this Photo
Looks like your giving the camera man the finger.

View this Photo
Sweet, I love that boulder!!!!

View this Photo
My brother lives 8 miles from there so I can tell you there is better rock in the area. It's only 99.9985% Choss... Most of the granite in the range is only 5% Choss.

View this Photo
Nice Offwidth!!!!!!Bring enough big gear?

View this Photo
That thing is sick. I walked up on matt when he was working it for the fa. He said it was hard...

View this Photo
Thats a great climb.

View this Photo
Your belayer should be more attentive and not taking pictures.

View this Photo
I told you there was a easy moderate line in that hole.Looks like if you fall your gonna break your ankle on the ledge below. I'm guessing your 120 feet up.

View this Photo
The Roof Route to the right is a easy 5.11-.

View this Photo
Nice...I love it when the sky does that. With all the butt shots that get Super Sized Rights this should be Hi-Res or at least Super Sized.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Your belayer wasn't very attentive when taking this shot.

View this Photo
I love the homemade hangers. They look bomber!!!!

View this Photo
crank!

View this Photo
That looks sweet!! Makes me want to take a trip down south.

View this Photo
Nice work!! I think thats the guy that short roped me on Falling Ross last weekend. What is this boulbering?

View this Photo
It's about 140 feet down to the bottom of the chimney and about 300 feet to the ground.

View this Photo
Nice Photo Erin!

View this Photo
No, It's too short and pretty much sucks. But it might be a exciting outing for the 5.7 leader. Ankle breaking potential exists if you wank and fall at the crux and hit the ledge.

View this Photo
A classic route put up by John (The Gambler) Rosholt.

View this Photo
I love all the gumbys the crew has taken out there and left over the years.

View this Photo
You look like you got the form down for BASE Jumping. How was the landing? I used size 11 1/2 shoes with socks and I had a soft landing.

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars Are you trying to bust a nut?

View this Photo
I think it's the smog that makes us Phoenix climbers crazy not to mention the lack of good rock at local crags. Pinnacle Peak is the one of the few exceptions.

View this Photo
That approach is killer! The first time I done that route, It started to rain just below that point right after the crux. It rained until 1am. It was a fun walk back in the rain.

View this Photo
It's nice up there huh. You almost got Weavers Needle in the picture. I've been up there 4 times and I want to go back up again.

View this Photo
That looks sick!

View this Photo
That pack must have been fun to drag up the chimney on the 5th pitch.

View this Photo
That climb is called Child Of Troubled Times and is 5.9 not 5.11

View this Photo
The 3 1/2 hour hike back to the truck is fun.

The Ghoul is chopping the bolts right next to One For The Road.

View this Photo
Fireworks, Hells yeah.

View this Photo
Good looking crack. It was serene then baaaa. Do you got belay bolts up there too? They do make a thing called a # 4 Big Bro. I use mine a lot. And it's lighter then your power drill. Just one climbers opinion........

View this Photo
Ed has a better crack then Bob?

View this Photo
Beautiful looking dihedral. Does it climb as good as it looks?

View this Photo
Don't you have to lead to get the second ascent? I guess climbing is changing.....

View this Photo
trfa?

View this Photo
And some of us put bolts in next to # 4 big bro placements.

View this Photo
Yeah, how true pyro. Come on down and boulder it. It's a classic problem.

View this Photo
At first it reminded of dano climbing eagle falls. Nice picture!

View this Photo
A sad retrobolted testpiece. Originally lead on gear by Kurt Smith. Nice Picture chosschick. It's as good or better than the Yosemite Climbing cover page.

View this Photo
Does city of Scottsdale mean Marty. I like hiking up and down this in my boots. Who objects to this bolt being removed.

View this Photo
He's right at the retrobolt. Thanks for lowering the standards of climbing.

View this Photo
your on send it 5.10a

View this Photo
runouta?

View this Photo
I don't think your helmet has one scratch on it. You must not climb on much choss.

View this Photo
So you have more fun in Ed's crack.

The largest holds you will ever fall off of.

We went off of it over 10 times. It will rip your pants off!

Your gonna take a 35+ foot whipper in to the side of the chimney.

Looks like a good boulder problem.

Runerout! Looks like a clean fall.

Drilled pockets are for fags.

5 out of 5 stars Ego climbing? I would say it is for true climbing. Because one must know his true ability to pull off a onsite of this climb. To climb it for egotism would be shear stupidity and you would most likely end up like the Soloest climbing for ego. Hurt or dead. Nice job on the climb. Tuolumne is one of my favorite places to climb in the world. It offers true climbing.

Ice will form on this waterfall on the coldest days of the year.

Simply Breathtaking. I have been dreaming of this rock for years. The fingersnatcher.... Don't forget, The Cerro Torre is not a mountain it's a Scream of Stone.

View this Photo
The route is wet on a windy day. It's also not to noisy. I would say it's real relaxing.

View this Photo
It is best done as one pitch. Fun wide crack up on top especially without a wide piece. Peaches and Cream is a fun 5.7 crack too. Nice Lead!

View this Photo
Yeah It's a good shot. People like sed like to rate it one star.

View this Photo
I hope to be there soon! Nice work

View this Photo
Gambler lives! We miss you man. Hope your having fun out there!

View this Photo
At the perch on the last pitch John yelled "yaahooo" like a kid it was awesome. "Best 5.9 pitch in the universe".
