It was some damn good lighting, too. This was just after some rain and hail, and the sun was getting low. And yes, precisely on the frame vs computer.
It helps to have an extensive art background with these guys. Watch out on the digital camera, though - printing sucks for the most part. I really recommend my camera - Kodak DC280 - I dropped it down an embankment on a back packing trip and it whacked into a bunch of trees and keeps on ticking. Yeeeehaw.
Those have got to be some hardcore chalked routes, there's even some run off . . . slippery!
See, I think this is the EPITOME of good climbing photography. That needs to be on the cover of Climbing or something. Approved!
That is cool!
Yah, this is an AWESOME bouldering shot. LOVE the expression.
Wait, is that boulder called 010101? I wasn't sure about that. Just being a smart ass.
That's awesome. You go!
Tuolumne rocks! Get it? Get it. Is this thing on?
How does she climb with her hair loose like that? Wow.
Climber guys with glasses rock!
Actually, that photo Ansel took is enhanced. The moon was added in later.
I love that he seems to be smiling.
I love the contrast of the colors.
That is the funniest picture EVER. Yeah Lars!
I am a pussy, just ask rrradan.
Chad only got Obi because my dog was so cool. :)Sure, he listens to me bitch on P-Crack, but I got him where it really counts.
There's 5.13 slab?
I'm impressed you're leading on your first time out. Maculated says, "Noooooooo way am I leading my first time."
Am I crazy or is he climbing on thread?
Did I know you were going to Yosemite? VERY nice photo.
Back to my roots! Darn straight. Wish I could climb by the ocean. Damn chossy California stuff.
I'm with Biner. I was a local and that problem always has people standing around and watching. Yes, Bishop is busy, but Trench is full of it. In the nine or so months I lived out there, I found plenty of untouched bouldering, and I didn't work too hard since I dislike it.
I miss the Eastside. :(
I had to vote that down because I cannot handle looking at that for much longer.
Awesome. Love the fading.
What a cute name for a crag. Gotta love all those 'other English language-speaking' places.
I'll bite. What's the giant protuberance? Is that shoulder? Huge chest muscle? Or breast?
I like the apparent black and white background and the contrast of the woman in color. Very cool.
Holy shirt Batman!
Uhh, this is not Bishop's Peak, but rather, Bishop.
Actually, the photo says akward. I don't know what akward is. The climb does look AWKWARD, though. :)
Rarely will you see something so perfectlyvert. Awesome.
Yeah, you have me. My dog just climbs fences. New goal!!!!!
No, I love the contrast. This is great.
Rope's kinda far from the wall, though.
Don't be fooled. He only climbs 5.4.
How is that even legal? Dorms would have kicked me out. Awesome.
Goregeous. Reminds me of the Adirondacks.
I like the chalk on the lips.
I like how you are leaning into her and she's like, "Stay away" with her body language. You are so the man.
Psyche. Psyche yourself up.
Pink ropes kick much bootay.
I heart this shot.
HAHAHAA!! Toque!!! It's a beanie, man! A BEANIE!!
I didn't know Adam Sandler was a climber.
I love how someone thinks they contradict my word choice and basically just explains what I meant. Love it.
How big do you want it?
Kelly rocks. Yup.
Nah, she likes getting carried around like that. Stops the ankle biting, too. This photo makes up for me posting the sick picture.
July, most likely.
That wasn't New Year's Eve, it was New YEar's day. I was there.
You know Adam, every time I see you, you are wearing that shirt. Do you have, like 100, or is that my special shirt?
It's hard to resist making out with my computer screen right now.
Oh that's right, I was doing yoga crap when you took that!
Okay, lets see who's right about whether this photo is any good or not. :)
He had like three pieces in by his feet.
He also wasted no time in taking off his pants at the end of this one for me. The boys, I tell you, they just come running.
I cant stop looking at Geo. What's Martha doing?
That's not a muzzle, BTW, that's her head halter.
TOLD YOU IT SUCKED!! :)
Can, will do it next time I'm in the valley. Oh yes.
Mont Blanc yet gleams on high: - the power is there, / The Still and solemn power of many sights, / And many sounds, and much of life and death. - Shelley
I wish I wasn't as soft and squishy as I am. Then I could be like kick-ass Ukranians!
Check my photos. The big one isup there now.
HAHAHA, now you find it? What's up with that?
That's a fun route to free. That whole area is great.
Those are some virginal cams.
Pointy stuff on a kid. Scary!
Oh wow, he's friends with NOFX. Spraaaaaaaaay
Man, you kick ass. :)
I like it. Send it to Misty mountain.
I knew this would take off. Yay Jeff.
Looks like you are having fun! Stupid hat!
Chelsea always has good taste in shirts. yay Chelsea!
SO Spankable!! Look at the look she's giving him!
That's good boling ethics for ya.
What a sexy climber!!
Overlord, I officially love you for watching and enjoying that movie.
What friggin' beer belly! You are such a freak.
The best thing about this is that if you've ever spent much time there, you know that those kinds of sunsets are not few and far between. Beautiful job. I like how the road appears to be heading straight for Mt. Tom.
You know, everytime I see this photo I think Prince William has taken up climbing.
It makes me want to go: "Eeeeeeeee!!" ::pinches cheeks::
I personally would have chosen a smaller nut to fit perfectly in that bottleneck. As it is now, it could pop out with enough outward force. Or, you could have put something up higher in the crack.
I had a partner like that in Tuolumne. We named him John Long.
That's almost as sexy as multiple whippers way off the deck!
Awesome job, Lars!
Yeah, he still has the funky shades.
Oh, this is the best creature climbing photo ever. EVER. I mean, look at the harness!! And the locker!
Great shot. I love the composition and colors.
Heh. This can't be aid, he looks happy to be there. : )
BTW, I noticed that locker isn't locked. It's just there holding another flaked rope. I'm not gonna die or anything. Trust me, there cannot be a trio of more paranoid climbers than the three of us.
It's a profile photo now.
Whoever adjusted the color on this rocks.
Cloud's Rest is my all-time favorite summit in Yos.
Nope, they don't. They weight the bottom which makes them unable to use it to jump out or chew.
HAHAHAHAH! Best description ever.
Dude, it's not shallow DOF, he just blurred it like petsfed said.
There have to be a million photos of this. The light was weird that evening for about an hour.
Fixed and fixed.
UB, that was TASTELESS!
Are you using that Walmart Rope?
::slaps hands to ears:: Eeeeeekk! I was NOT supposed to know about that, Ed!!
Potrero is DEFINITELY on the ticklist now.
Okay, for the naysayers (of which I have heard from two . . .):
We were far from abusing the animals. There's a reason the photo is on the front page. The squirrels in Yosemite are overly tamed and destroy food and gear. These particular squirrels were literally sitting on our feet and we'd have to toss rocks at them to get them to back off for five minutes.
"Bagging" them made them stay away for a few hours, but did no damage to them. In the animal business, it is called "Negative reinforcement." An animal performs a behavior that is undesirable (such as entering a grocery bag) and has been rewarded by food in the past. Now it is "rewarded" with being trapped for a small amount of time. It learns that hanging out in paper bags is not such a good idea and thus makes both squirrel and person happy.
The theory is it would train them to stay out of our stuff, and it worked for a day or so. Abuse, torture, etc, is malignant treatment of animals for gratification. We had a point. Yes, fargoan looks pretty happy, but we were pretty incredulous that they would even go in there. ~~~~~ In fact, talk to me about the milk you drink and the steak you eat which comes from animals that are under our official charge and the treatment of said bovines before you have a problem with a little fun with annoying squirrels.
Wow, I wish my hair would magically braid itself after a swig of pale ale at 8 am. :)
That's Lee. : )
Cute new short hair!
That is so cool. I haven't been called annoying in ten years. Thanks!
Better than most. I am thinking about using this for my profile. :)
fixed, hahahahahahahahhaha . . .
Yes Art, yes, I am. Thank God for that solar shower you're bringing to AZ.
Damn, we're really hitting on something, aren't we??
"SuperClip." At rockclimbingtools.com
The beach? Huh?? I see a rock and a valley.
HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA. Nice, Darth.
Done and done. Thanks.
Hey now, the rack may be large, but it stays where its supposed to!
WHAT is that yellow thing equalizing your slings?
This photo just makes me want to meet you for whatever reason. : )
Blame? Blame? Look at that! This site would not be complete without this photo.
Uhh, hey kids. . . that's really the hard way. Give that guy a biner and clip it to the jumar. 2:1 and he pulls himself up, not the rope.
It's long. And you can reverse it and go back the other way.
Wallress, snicker snicker. :)
"Our local castle." heh.
Perty, isn't it? It is supposed to be more direct, too.
I love this one. Happy climbers rule.
Hillary, you're stealing my thunder. Kudos on the creative angle.
What a hotty hot hot. You said "tatty."
Somebody needs an ascender or two! :) I like the little pulley you have.
I love days filled with hot asses.
Damn. Daaaaaaaaaaaaamn. This is why I hate bouldering.
Aid climbing = normal shoes, not sticky rubber.
Best belayer in the west, or at least I call myself that. :)
That's Tigger! Her puppet chalk bag!
Hey! I am so upset! Kate's rack turns out to be bigger than mine!! BOOO!! I thought I was the chick here with the biggest rack. :P
Very cute! :)
That's like samoans! Tree climb, baby!!! That's a crazy skill to have!
Looks like it to me. :)
BTW, this is proof positive that women are not the only things that can get highly rated when not climbing related. See! It has nothing to do with men and their uncontrollable desires! Unless .. .
This gets a 10 because all these photos of climbing are lame. Llamas are not.
Karl, I rarely believe in the perfect shot, but you've got it. the clouds, the clarity, and then you have the slab. Crap. Crap. Crap.
I tried but the photo editors said no.
Shiny new C4s. :)
Why does this look so much better on my computer?
Yup, that's a rappeller.
Oh God, the gun comment. I was meant to lift weights and pound idiot men who make comments about my guns into the ground. :D
I know that's what it says. I would like to pound Lico if he weren't so historically impressive.
It is swell for being half strength.
Pretty soon, me thinks. May 2005 is what I was told. Just in time for my birthday.
YOu know, that first hat I had disappeared. I always figured you'd snatched it. Somewhere out there is a climber with a very badass hat.
Dude, I have a blue dorky brain bucket. Yours appears to be matching the chalk bag anyway. . . :)
YOu kinda look like Travis in this photo.
Word. that belay sucks.
I HATE that route. Hate it. It was my first lead.
Stuff that steep usually has set draws. It doesn't look like he's got any on his harness, so case in point. Still, that's pretty neat.
Actually, her name is "Isabel" Rittberg. :) Yeah Izzy!
look like? I am. :)
You know, I saw Christina's photo comments and you were wondering why you didn't have internet stalkers. I can't figure it out, either .. . I mean, look at those pants.
I think I have slept under that problem.
4Runner. And unfortunately, my name was never "Kitty."
What is that??
Great, great colors.
John, this, and those photos on mountainforum are amazing. Very creative. I like the one of your friend's leg coming out at the camera.
You're just bummed you didn't have the little blue shoe. :)
Dave is just so lovable! I"m so proud you found it!
That's pretty cute.
That lizard is back! Yay!
What? Taping your hands is a Smith classic?
So you actually sound the "swimming holes?" When I had to do that route, that was supposed to me bmy reward. I saw no swimmng holes.
Beautiful slide, Shawn. You've come a long way from when I met you oh so long ago.
Geez, Nathan, these are dynamite. And that route is, too.
That's my girl!! Beta Babe! You are sending like a madwoman these days!
I still think for cracks you'd rock if you got something kinda mushy to wedge in there - it'd almost be cheating. :)
Great photo! Yeah, Hill, Ken's kinda got a 7th Grade gym teacher demeanor to boot. :) He is going to killllll me!
That is not fair. It looks all low angle.
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. My two favorite folks.
And it's "dike" like dam, not "dyke" like rides the bike without the seat.
