4 out of 5 stars Mate, that's a great moment! See, there ARE other reasons for climbing, not just to get to the top...... we'd climb up there too if our wallet was up there!

Not often you get to pluck bananas from the tree rather than from your lunchbox when your out climbing.

They would need to be long to clip that draw from there. Good photo.

4 out of 5 stars so.... can we ask about the pee hole..? please explain. Great shot by the way, I'd certainly like to be there.

4 out of 5 stars love silhouettes!

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Only one of my favorite climbs in the World! The piton was fine when I clipped it in 96 and fell off at the lip. It's positioned perfectly so you swing past the arete. These days I'd also back it up though (where he has is the best spot). The ball I'd say helps chopper and planes 'see' the lines. The horizontal break is a great spot for gear, but it increases rope drag severely when negotiating the upper headwall. Great action shot billy!

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars He he he. Pitty about the graffiti in the background. Looks like a great climb though....mmm...jamming. Keep it up!

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Fair enough.... is that really the name of the climb? I love that movie!!! You've framed the shot nice...looks like it's ready for the wall. 8)

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Yep, gotta agree! 10 for location, 10 for colour, 10 for composition and depth of field..... Great shot! Now you've made me consider booking a flight!

Always love your work Neil! Great stuff. Yep... consistently the best photographer IMO on this site.

4 out of 5 stars you're really tweaking that little finger of yours.

5 out of 5 stars Doesn't look like your hanging onto anything.... and your left hand just knows where to go, hey? Cool shot.

4 out of 5 stars Not only am I amazed how red a pair of shoes can be, but I am humbled to the courage displayed by the clip skip AND how those jugs could keep their firm shape under such gravitational forces applied during intense competition.....

5 out of 5 stars You betcha I did! That place really is a fantastic climbing area. I was fortunate to have my draws preplaced on this one. Makes things quite a bit easier.

4 out of 5 stars Thanks phreakdigital. I was hoping I had placed this photo correctly, since it was 7 years ago I was there. Yep, sure is some fine stuff around there. Heinous cling is still my hardest red point (1st pitch). This guy was really smooth on Darkness at Noon and got it second go.

4 out of 5 stars Neil, you never cease to amaze me. Perfect lighting. You picked a great time of day.

4 out of 5 stars Pretty sure you're right crackjammer. That's what I remember it to be.

5 out of 5 stars Surely is! Carrots are fine, just makes it a little longer to clip in. Three movements- bracket, draw then rope.

....now only a 'n00b' like yourself, who relies on pictures like that, would make a stupid comment about something he hasn't even tried.... if you knew what you were talking about, unlike all of your arrogant anchor and safety comments, you would know a reverso used like this creates more friction....

View this Photo
....you know what, lightandfast? Give us more insight into your extensive knowledge about climbing, ESPECIALLY safety tips, like posting your own pictures, and I may think about backing down from the belief that you're an arrogant, bumblie tool with only negative things to say.... oh and by the way, those cams are BOMBER.... we rapped off them!! I would have repeatedly, ALL DAY LONG....

nicely done.... could do with the left half of the photo cropping out.... just for composition....

3 out of 5 stars ....ouch.... those socks! Almost looks like a pic from the 70's! Looks bold too....

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars ...I would suggest cropping more of the top part out.... if you scroll down and view it with the rock taking up about a third of the photo it looks much better.... sacrifice rock and emphasise the mountains. The lighting on the climber is good.... I give it a 9....

4 out of 5 stars ....how adorable.... awesome idea....

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars ....the photo could be cropped better, to get the climber out of the middle and the belayer out of the shot (he's not looking anyway, which is unnerving).... but the climbing itself will add to the rating I give....

View this Photo
No worries, yeah, the bolts are pretty close.... but the holds get small after this spot, which makes that the best place to clip from.... (the right hand is relatively good).... I'd normally move my waist to the clip before clipping. (The climb is about 10c/d)

5 out of 5 stars If anyone needs to know, the blue rope is to clip once around the lip of the overhang, since rope drag is horrendous once past the lip. That's why there's heaps of slack in it.

It's not complicated at all. Phil can set this whole thing up and pull it all down in around half an hour. It just looks a little 'busy' with all the gear he has on him. He has a grigri to descend with. Ascenders to climb the abseil rope and a prussik from his harness to the pulley rope. That's all.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Looks like great gear and an awesome climb. I like the shot, because it captures the clip, which can sometimes be a struggle. There isn't enough pics of climbers clipping gear. It's something every leader does and should be photographed more. I think some people would have a problem with these type of photos because they can make the climbing look awkward.

It's just the Kiwi version of Via Ferrata.... and look at that perfectly good tree.... they need some iron rungs and a caving ladder up that too.... they could probably add a sit start to the boulder in the foreground....

5 out of 5 stars Always a pleasure to see this pic! I have had the book for a couple of years now and enjoy flipping through it every so often. B.t.w. if you look at the version in the book you can see the bolt is about a foot above his right hand.

4 out of 5 stars I don't see what the problem is. It's a good shot... well composed.... a little flat with lighting but you get that in the canyon. Just because the climber's on top-rope doesn't mean the shot sucks. Heck, climbers spend half their time with the rope above them anyway. For a top-rope pic, this is actually a really good one!

4 out of 5 stars I like it. This type of shot isn't seen much here and it's nice to see something different, as sidepull stated. It could do with some adjustment; less of the foreground (perhaps 40% of the frame), so that the climber and spotter can be seen and have more emphasis, but keep the background blurred. Also maybe some more lighting on the foreground, even with a reflective surface to kick some sunlight back onto the rock texture.

Looks like he's placed a cam, but has clipped a runner to the piton with the piece in the horizontal crack under the roof. Great pic, btw! Still one of my favorite climbs.

I didn't find this climb too hard for 5.9 and it's certainly not sustained or anything. Maybe a couple of 5.9 moves up high. The first bolt, from memory, is a little high but you can get a good wire in before that if you need to.
