5 out of 5 stars 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.

5 out of 5 stars 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.

5 out of 5 stars Those have got to be some hardcore chalked routes, there's even some run off . . . slippery!

5 out of 5 stars 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!

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 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.

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.
