look closely and you can tell she is mumbling "5.9 my ass, I'm going to kill terry" and "you can take your raincheck and shove it".
i love this photo!
whoaa look! Its a huge crab!
Sweet! He is on "Whole Hog" right? I've never seen the water fall spraying like that....had it just rained?
kinda depends on how good the gear is...
I swear that looks like Julie and me (okieterry) on snakehead and russell and nancy on S wall! Was this taken during the spring fling?
She's free soloing. Its a pretty easy climb for her.
It just happened...its called a spontaneous pneumothorax and it tends to randomly happen to mostly tall skinny women and men in their 20s. She had a kinda blister on the top of one lung (called a bleb) and it just let the air out. To fix it, they had to go in by cutting out part of a rib and then suture her lung together. She's totally fine now.
Nice pic. He's just unclipped from the bolt and has to trust a couple of nasty footholds......(I led this route last week)
I love the sky and the way you framed the shot with the upper part of the climb. Awesome!!!
I love this photo!!!
At the time I was convinced that it was hard and scary. Its awesome that you did it in those old stiff vibram cleated shoes ambler!
Amber stop! You will get your pants back next month!
Dave, He had done Supercrack at the gunks the previous year and was heading out to california after spending a few weeks climbing with me in eldo. He had climbed many hard routes back home but was relatively "new" on the scene here.
follow the chalk!
yep, its the first of several chimney pitches on epinephrine. We stayed in the chimney the whole way instead of following the chalk trail out onto the right face several times. Call me old fashioned but knee pads rock!!!!! We started early (about an hour before sunrise) and tagged the top about 3:00 PM. We both loved the route and none of it seemed run-out.
Awesome picture and fantastic climb Bob. Thanks for putting it up!!! I remember when a pic of this was published in Climbing (I think on the cover) back in 1990 or so and it prompted my buds and I to drive up from Oklahoma and sample those sweet pockets!
awesome pic bob!! I recognized it immediately. I remember working that route a long time ago with Skip Guerin and Mark Rolofson. I don't think it had been climbed yet. What a beautiful corner!!!
Man that looks good!
uhhh...can I get a poster of this?
nope...taken by force.
Very cool!!! Amazing! I gave it a 10!!!
actually its on the upper parts of "Pizza Face" which is a 200 foot 5.8 that you do to get to Snake's Head (5.6).
I guess it does look kinda plain...especially in the winter!
its called Green Eggs and Spam and its really a fist crack unless you are Mark.
That sure looks familiar. Where is this?
Awesome photo..I gave it a ten!
Ratings smatings...who cares? Whats cool about this photo is that the big tree falling down last summer made it possible.
Awesome photo...this is now my new screensaver photo. Very inspiring!!!!
Awesome photo! Beautiful location!
We must have been suffering with heat exhaustion to climb that wearing shorts.
Nice photo Peter. Trying to decide if I like the special effect or not...part of me does.....Hmmm.... I think at this point I place some gear in the opposite wall that you start on.
Fantastic photo!! 10!
ok, I can understand your skeptism. However, I am a geologist and thoroughly understand erosion and glaciology. The nearest glaciers to this area occured in Kansas in an area approximately 400 miles to the northeast. These "polishes" are very unique and only occur on boulders and cliffs that are surrounded by flat lying land. They usually occur from 5 to 15 feet above present day ground surface. The glaciers did play an important part to this though....they created a lot of run-off and precipitation in Oklahoma that caused thick growth of grasses and cool temps...perfect for wooly mammoths and wooly rhinocerous.
this photo is in the wrong section...route is not in cedar valley!
love this pic...way to go adam and andrew!!!
I took this pic on the day after we did the West Face of El Cap. It was cool looking at a new perspective of el cap. No wonder it seemed like such a long way from where we topped out to the first rap on the east ledges! We went up there on a rest day to look for the California Kingsnake. Terry Andrews
