Climbing in the Herbert area is vastly underexplored. In the photo there are two fairly extensive granite areas, to the right and left of where the glacier comes down in a V. I have been to the Herbert Glacier several times and it appears these areas could be a great place to climb. There is more granite further up the mountain on both sides of the glacier. Most of these areas are on the opposite side of the Herbert River which is a torrent of ice water, especially on hot days. Does anyone know of a safe place to cross the river?

That spire is a sacred spot and people should no more climb it than drill bolts in the cathedral of Notre Dame. I saw the Hunchback cartoon, there are some reasonable climbs in that church. Seriously, what are the rules on Navajo lands outside of Canyon de Chelly?

Glacial caves are difficult to photograph. I have taken hundreds of shots and most turn out too dark or too light. Great shot.

Yes, he doesn't look like he is dressed to climb rocks and he doesn't have any gear but that is one of the beauties of the photo. We have all been there. You start scrambling up something you thought was fairly minor and realized half way up that it is a long way down and a lot tougher than you thought. Great photo.

4 out of 5 stars The fact that the photo catches the rope mid air is part of what makes it a
great photo. The background might be worth mentioning twice. Is there
anything wrong being redundant every now and again?

4 out of 5 stars I don't know how this photo came to be listed in the area description "Atlantic" the Devil's Paw is located on the border between Alaska and British Columbia about 25 miles east of Juneau. It is 8,507 feet (2593 m) high. I have only seen the Paw from a distance and it is definitely impressive. I would like info on how difficult it is to climb.

4 out of 5 stars It's a great pic because in addition to it being a ballsy move the photo shows motion better than most I have seen on this site. The arm doesn't detract at all.

3 out of 5 stars I would say you are lucky if you live near real rocks and resourceful if you do something cool like climb a bridge. Resourceful is a compliment by the way. Makes me look at bridges in a whole new light. Great pic

4 out of 5 stars It's not hypocritical. Putting photos online and discussing the photos is what this web page is about. great pic too.

It is a little petty to snivel over size. you don't go to the Granite Basin to climb that rock anyway. you go because the basin is a spectacular place to hike in the shadow of Mt Olds. thanks hosh for reminding me to bring my climbing shoes when next time i go.

4 out of 5 stars Good shot. Getting a picture of mountain goats is no easy task. They are skiddish.

It looks like a lot of fun. Is it really a 5.10b? It doesn't look that hard in the photo.

You should remind your spotter to put his paws up to catch you.

4 out of 5 stars Is this little climber scouting his/her first ascent?

Just outside of Muncho Lake, British Columbia is my guess.

5 out of 5 stars I voted five stars too because of the anticipation of pain. That and the clarity of the climber.

5 out of 5 stars The dog does look a little large. I like the pic. I also suspect the climber was not sucked under the cliff by the tranquil waters below.

5 out of 5 stars Is this in the Juneau Icefield? It's a great pic.

5 out of 5 stars I agree it's a great pic partly because it is an angle you don't often see. Also, because the move is a very balancy move and the photo picks up the concentration needed to make it happen. The mental aspects of climbing are hard to portray and this pic does it.

5 out of 5 stars I like it. It captures an event that includes climbing. Capturing the emotion of a moment is actually pretty hard to do. And barefoot too.

Great pic. I was just there on a private trip two weeks ago. Being above Lava has a way of creating mental focus like few other things. It's great. Do you know if anybody ever climbs the Anvil? I thought about it for a second and then my thoughts returned to the rapid ahead. We did not flip.

5 out of 5 stars Nebraska is the place to be!! I would have been too scared to climb that without a chalk bag. 5 out of 5 stars
