4 out of 5 stars as massive as it is, do you carry it or does it carry you? ;)

cute! do pugs make good crag dogs? have considered getting one, but am always worried about whether it will get overworked on the approaches 'n such.

3 out of 5 stars nice! i think the route of the leftmost visible portion of rock in the bottom third of the photo to the anchors below her feet is Les Lézards. anyone know for sure? (the only route i got on in europe)

4 out of 5 stars nice photo! is she just high-stepping the right foot or is that a knee-bar?

sweet photo and nice arm/shoulder/lat definition! is it just me or does her elbow look bent backwards?

4 out of 5 stars i love how you can see someone, via headlamp, send Bum Boy

4 out of 5 stars in retrospect, i'm glad that i didn't have big gear this past september. having only a cam in the horizontal and the chockstone made it a spicier first offwidth on the sharp end. i love the feeling of clipping the anchors after a climb like that!

4 out of 5 stars i love her facial expression combined with the obvious strain/body tension! wish that lighter colored pad in the foreground wasn't there.

4 out of 5 stars the crack close to us is Birch Tree Crack (5.8) and the face in-between is Hourglass (5.11c) which starts by traversing out of Birch Tree. there's also Hourglass Direct (5.12a) variation.

nice view. you could almost just photoshop in some text for an iSunset (a-la-Apple)

...Fat Cat?

when was that photo taken? i was the next person to lead the route after the "burrito hold" broke off last spring. it wasn't fun sitting underneath the route and seeing silhouettes of the previous leader fly off as well as chunks of rock.

if it's as slick as you're implying, would the lobes of cams catch on that concrete if you fell?

4 out of 5 stars I agree with b_l_b. I love that you were able to give us a wider shot for perspective while also giving us a close-up of the wall to see what she's working with.

i believe that is clausti dynoing with j_ung spotting

the big breadloaf rock is in the bottom of the frame behind the bush with stuff piled on top of it. i need to get back on that thing, preferably with spotter and pad.

wait, a Castle Hill photo where the grass isn't a lush green? i think my universe is falling apart! btw, great photo!

wow! i love how the red leaves seem to work/flow right with the rock features and "frame" the route and climber. the climber's skin tone is what draws my eye to notice her. i don't notice the belayer so much, except for the blue of the pants. that tree gives it such depth.... awesome job! though, you probably already knew that ;-)

"Stunted Growth?"

where is that? i'd love to get out there with my camera... all those white trunks and lush green...

That's "Gung Ho" (also 12b). Tissue Tiger is on the chalked pockets barely seen at the right edge of the photo.

5 out of 5 stars Great colors and so much texture!

4 out of 5 stars Great capture! I love that it's sharp/in focus, the exposure seems spot on, she's leading and you can see her face, and it's an aesthetic shot...but I just couldn't give it that 5th star because having her centered in the frame is bugging me way too much (more than it should?).
