What's that splotch on your right leg? Looks like a pretty bad bruise.
Don't blame the bad pic on the cell phone camera. *You* were the one who decided to upload this POS photo in the first place.
Was this shot underwater?
Nope, not a camera trick at all! The bottom is a good 200+ feet from the leaper. Out of frame to the left, on either side, are some bolts and studs from an old highline. There's also a memorial plaque for someone on the small outcrop above and behind the jumper.
That's a 5.7 pitch, but it looks like you're carrying an aid rack.
One of the worst photos on rc.com ever.
Easily one of the worst pics on rc ever.
This pic sucks donkey balls.
Why does this piece of crap photo keep surfacing to the front page?
Might be a better photo with a climber on the route.
Wow - those pins are still there? I remember clipping them 25 years ago, and they were old then. It's best to assume that any old looking pin in the Gunks is worthless.
Apparently caduspencer chose not to orient the photo properly for some unknown reason.
I like the gravity defying gear on his harness. And the wildly tilted horizon.
That's not the crux, as it's 5.8. The 5.9 is the bolt ladder before it.
Looks like that "piton" is more likely a bolt hanger viewed edge-wise although the video clearly shows at least one pro that looks like a drilled piton. Maybe it's some kind of funky brown colored glue-in? In any case, it's solidly a sport route with the expected amount of drilled placements - hardly old school at all.

Buttermilks name: back during the days of intensive mining and mineral exploration, there was a dairy in that vicinity that was known among the miners for the quality of the buttermilk it produced. The surrounding area became known as Buttermilk Country.
Too bad about that massively distracting shadow.
And to uggshoes who commented on this photo: eat shit and die, fucking spammer.
That's Devil's Tower in north eastern Wyoming.
"...what the guide book calls the crux move of the route... it's not. The 3 of us agreed it felt like a 5.8+, maybe 5.9 move..."
on a route rated 5.9. Sorta sounds crux like. The moves on P2 only feel harder if you're not used to that kind of climbing.
This photo is tagged as sport climbing. That is definitely *not* a sport climb.
It seems that almost no one is able to correctly hold the camera when photographing CCK - the horizon (the true one in the background, not the closer ridgelet) is almost always tilted to the right, like in this one, making the climb look a lot steeper than it really is.
Actually Jig, the colors are indeed accurate and, because of where the pro is, the rope really does lay that way on the pitch.
As far as the quality of the photo, the big detractors are the tilted horizon and the missing head. A secondary improvement would be proper exposure of the sky and a fill light. When it's not in full sun, it's actually a pretty difficult shot to expose properly and not require darkroom manipulation (either digital or old school wet processing).
The corner is only so-so...not bad, but not nearly as nice as the neighboring face routes.
Photos of babies climbing should be banned from the front page. Is there a way to give photos zero stars? Negative stars would be even better.
Why? This is for open comments. If you can't handle negative comments, then grow a thicker skin or not post photos.
Where are you? I don't see any climbers in the photo
Lamest photo ever.
Why do you have a cardboard photo of your baby stored with your rope?
Why did you post a picture of a plastic doll?
Seen enough times it actually becomes a little creepy. I finally had to block the image.
Are you lying on a sidewalk?
Not a climbing photo. It should never appear in the front page rotation and arguably has no place on this forum. Besides that, it's a terrible quality photo.
Where? Too bad about the focus.
