It is Sandstone - most of our rock is red like that.
Great use of flash! Almost looks like a movie set ;-)
The route is sandbag 5.10d, and very pumpy! The second bolt is a bitch to clip to most people fall off there. I have no idea about those shoes as I took the photo...
i love landcapes...
Its all ringbolts. The last bit looked really tough. To see a quicktime movie of this area check out http://www.mrppp.com.au/nhb/movies/point_perp.mov
looks like crap
nice photo. i love the mucle tension...
what do these furry critters eat up there?
Amazing and beauiful. a def 10
This reminds me of the Grampains sandstone in Australia.
Sick photo mr marty!
Is the photo taken on a funny angle? It appear the skyline is all tilted, thus the route is actaully not as steep as it appears...
One of the best. I love seeing the belayer in shot, gives a great sense of perspective.
Great shot. I love the yellow texture on the rock. Pity those fixed quickdraws are so damn ugly!
I offered to replace the bolts with rings but Nick told it was ok how it was - until it clibmed it and found the stupid detachable hangers very desperate!
Its shot on a Sony DSC-P1 Digital Stills Camera
Absolute 10/10. A great shot with that lovely afternoon glow. My fav time of day!
My fingers hurt just looking at this!
Perfect sport climbing photograph! Nice colour
I like the climbing but the bolting and rock arn't the best. It is jug fest 23 like Weaveworld at the Gallery. Prob closer to 22 though
It looks like a tough boulder problem through the upper roof!
The background looks sureal - like its been painted in. Thsi place is on my top 5 list of places to visit.
Gareth used to have dreads - but they are no longer.
Love the action!
Airwalks - the aussie climbers choice.
This is not a rank 10 photo!
The bottom is thin fingers, then it turns into thin hands for the rest of the route. The 'wide' section in the photo above the climber is actually an akward corner with thin hands. Very pumpy!
man - thats steep!
single 10mm roca. nothing sepcial - in fact the cheapest rope we can get in oz.
wow this place is big. i wish we had limestone like that in oz.
The name comes from the fact that I almost stepped on a Eastern Brown Snake (one of the top five deadliest) on the walk in.
Only in the USA woudl you find such big piles of red gorgeus choss! Nice pic - love the blue & red color.
you gotta fix those wierd streaks on the right side.
The preplaced gear annoyed me when i took this photo.
Wow, times have changed since i was there in 1997. I had the whole place to myself...
Really nice comp. I gotta try and make one like this..
Its a pity about the grafitti on the rock.
Crop the finger out of the upper right hand frame. And get a better scanner!
Use better compression to make these pictures clearer!
It looks like a beacon of light calling you into its jaws.
nice. it seems the most popular photos are overhanging silohettes at the moment!
Nice afternoon light. Is this sandstone?
amazing scary rock.
Suck that gut in!
I'd give it a 10 if the scan was clearer.
that is one amazing tower
amazing contrast betwen desert and snow
Whats with the belayer!! That dosn't look very safe.
no she isn't married - but she does have a muscley BF
My VISA card debt and sore limbs say all my pics are legit!
vien busting power!
What you didn't say is that it is 40'C in summer!
Great photo - really sums up the place
Nice photo - but $#!&house scan. It loosk like you have saved it as a GIF - with minimal index colors.
The exposure down the south face - to Jonos right - was gobsmaking . Thats the reason he is climbing the way he is!
Who needs ice axes?!
Shot at dusk on 35mm Velvia. The sky wasn't quite that purple - but when i 'crushed the blacks' in photoshop to get a perfect black silohette it enhanced the purple.
Submit your photos larger! They are awesome.
All it needs is the horizon to be straight!
This is so blurry I can't see anything!
It overhangs about 8m in 20m height.
August is the deepest drakest winter in NZ. I guess it would be in 'shape' but would certainly be a challenge.
What a crag!
nice in joke Phil ;-)
Crazy euro limestone - nice pic also!
Easy for the grade really. Quite slabby with a few good no hands rests.
Nice looking wall. Good framing on the pic - nice shirt color!
Where does this route start?
my god that looks scary!
It is a slab route. The angle is correct. The draws and ropes are just lying against the body/rock.
i don't log into rc.com to see pictures of war. Whats the point?
Contrast betwen light and dark ruins this photo
Looks a lot like Coles Bay in Australia - apart form the lack of trees on the top. Beautiful rock.
The rock is quite frictional sandstone.
Sweet photo. Brings back memories!
Highball? that would be a route at most crags!
Not the greatest of photo quality - but what a moment! Amazing....
You are one lucky bugger Mr Lama
For once black clothing actualy looks good in a climbing photo
This route has no worthwhile natural gear.
Great shot Martin! - wicked light. I can't believe I missed climbinn att his place. Looks like i have to go bac kto the USA again...
Thats not chalk - its bird poo!
The longest route is about 300m (900ft) high.
I don't like the foot of the belayer down low but apart form that it is a good shot. You should credit who actually takes these photos of you doughboy!
A great shot. More power!!
Jesus that looks cold
About five routes betwen 13 and 24. Nice marble rock.
well done - nice pic!
My god - this is too much. I want to cry....
WAAAY too much sharpening applied to these images.
Looks nice and green in the mountains behind...
Awesoem route and photo!
He is wearing aussie icons King Gee work pants.
Looks like manky South Central at Nowra
He got scared by the runut, climbed up to the first bolt on Question then downclimbed and climbed the original line with the high bolt clipped.
Yep - looks just like the Bluies. I love landscape photos. It looks like a nice wilderness location.
The softness comes from the JPEG compression. It is tough keepignthe pics below 90k. The rock is sandstone similar to to Red Rocks Nevada but better quality.
you gotta be desperate to boulder in those conditions!
I am sitting in the branches of a tree to take this photo! You can see the shadow of it across the belayer. I also used a wide angle lens.
Great moment captured!
Nice photo - i gave it a 9. Those South American glaciers look insane!
great moment in time captured.
Excellent back light
Nice work Joe! The Canon digi stills gets a work out...
Sets the scene for this area
post it as a bigger size.
That Nikon digi stills takes nice shots. Much better than my crappy Sony.
Widescreen action. I like it!
What a line! Photo ruined by stupid date.
Climbing fame would suck. I would hate to have so many people watching me....
Multiday big wall aid routes for the HUber Bros to free?
And the two James now both boulder at the same gym!
The trees in the back arn't straight which makes it steeper than the pic shows!. Nice shot.
This pic captures the area well.
The chain is ugly in the background!
The has only had two ascents!
After falling form the lip dyno a few times he decided it was too sketchy.
He dosn't believe stick clipping is a legitmate ascent!
Cool plant in foreground
Right hand to chalk blob intermiadate above left hand then all out throw with right hand again to a sloper hold on lip. Thats the way i do it anyway. Very little for your feet.
no other pics - sorry
waaay too many bolts. It looks like you could clip three from the same stance!
nice perspective. i like the keen attention Jono is giving!
winter at arapiles... oh what fun.
I wonder what sort of bolts they are?
The next hold is at least a metre away and is a crappy little crimper. The sloper is desperate but you have good feet to launch off.
it would be good to see the feet.
The dihedral is sub 5.10 from memory. It is amazing pockted volcanic rock very similar in feel/look to Wild Iris in Wyoming
How is that flake staying there?? freaky
No retouching or photoshop work for this photo.
eeeek - crappy quality photo. get a better camera/scanner!
New Zealand is three hours by plane from Australia!
this place looks rad. how cold is the water?
wow - this crag looks AMAZING! look at those draws...
yep - this is a great shot
This is in the middle of winter. A patch of snow sits on the summit during high summer but it is not skiable!
Perfect - 10! I love the spotters hands and how the climbers face is just visable.
those power lines are crazy
Great shot - awesome concentration...
This pic is very soft. Maybe post it smaller next time.
Could be a little wider - but still excellent.
the horizon isn't straight! (the route is slabbier than this pic)
The lack of DOF is what you get with consumer digital cameras!
It is moving for a big throw!
5.12a is the american grade
great shot. looking very relaxed.
Opps - my mistake. It is mostly trad apart from three bolts at the start.
sweet! stunning soft color.
out of focus pic of someone toproping is not a 10.
photo needs to be bigger!
yep - jaq has a wardrobe of coloured shirts for photo shoots!
Fantastic photo. Great texture, moment and everything. 10.
How tall is this?
submit this at higher quality! The JPEG damage is very ugly.
wow - amazing position.
The white patch is the overexposed sun creeping into the lower part of the photo.
Perfect orange slick sandstone rock.
An awesome route indeed. One of my favs of all time.
How the f&*&K is this rated a 10??
This route is grade 26 (5.12b) - not 27.
Golum emerges from his cave?
Cool looking area!
AMAZING. This is one of the best pics i have ever seen. I would love to see a full blown print of this image. Incredible detail.
Looks really fun
Whats with the draw sneaking into the frame up high? I thought this was a trad route!
This guys looks like he was born to climb. Freak!
I wish i had this place near my home. Nice work!
This is not a free solo. At any time he could clip into a bolt and rest if he was pumped.
10 10 10! Absoulty sick!
Thats me on the rope!!! Great pic Marty.
Looks good to me. It is dark but good dark.
Natural depth of field. No photoshoping - original colors as well.
1.8 - fixed 50mm lens
Really nice work Joe. I'd love to see a full guidebook like this!
Grade 24 (5.11d) actually
His right hand is on one of the BIGGEST holds in the cave!
This guy climbs 5.14c - it wasn't a tight rope!
Not 10. Poor composition, poor quality, poor subject, poor photo. Poor rc.com viewers for having to view this as a 10.
I apoligize for my comments. Having a bad day!
Thats not broken!
nice crossed arms!
I was scared $#!&less clipping that first bolt. You had to lean out and grab a roof flake and clip from it looking straight down at a sharp pointy death block below.
It follows an amazing orange dkye - and well spotted Copperhead - it is indeed the continuation on the dyke on the boulder in the ocean
Nice pic! a little soft though
Nothing like climbing in a downjacket in summer! Nice pic.
There is a bolt about 30cm below my feet.
This guys looks like an injury waiting to happen (or has it already happened?) Excellent pic.
Wicked shot Martin.
Long exposure whilst zooming in with the lens.
Photo was taken on a ledge. The climb is on a detached pillar.
Nice moment - very poor photo quality.
Look like quality rock. Nice pic - shame i can't see the face.
Good perspective of the area
Great action snap.
Looks an amazing wall
Too dark. Crazy friction hold!
Crazy looking rock!
Is this limestone?
What a killer line! Nice pic.
Really can't wait to go here...
Looks like dried mud
Wild. Hell is coming....!
Wow - i wanna climb here!
Shame about the foot being cut off
I am not a fan of bolted cracks...
Stellar pic! Really nice and sharp.
Another top ten rc.com silohette shot!
10 - stunning!
He is about 8m from the ground - and it would be a clean fall into space with no chance of smacking his head.
This is an un-retouched camera original. No photo-shopping was done to the framing, color or levels.
Yep - Falcon bird poop.
Looks like perfect friction conditions!
ummm - 10
Perfect - the sort of photo that convinces your non-climbing GF to go to Thailand for a 'holiday'
The horizon is correct - it is the edge of a mountain.
Yep - it certainly is that steep. Check the angle of the quickdraws down low on the route.
The lens was covered in water! Gotta love rain in the arctic...
I like the strange framing. Cool shot!
sick stuff indeed. Perfect day as well it seems.
I had no idea there was nice green grass in Israel! Looks like nice limestone.
crazy - no way would i want to climb that.
Awesome looking rock.
Cool angle - shame about the TR
Pic is a little soft and contrasty - still wicked though!
Pic is a little soft and contrasty - still wicked though!
Hard as jelly!
Looks like a fun route - my style for sure
Gotta love the vibe. Nice pic!
Looks like climbing mud....
The whole Grampians is my username inspiration!
Good angle - pity about the blurriness
Rad looking rock!
Cool - looks like a long way go. I bet the feet were hurting at the end!
Esther is getting strong!
and 5.14 - trad!!!
ok - fixed the horizon guys. It makes it even steeper!
Yep - a route i did with Nick McKinnon in 2001
Great pic Jacqui!
sun came out fo the upper pitches!
This pic is a bit too bright and contrasty.
Nice one - gives a good feel for the area.
very cool - awesome expression.
nice looking line
Yep - the angle is easy but there is NO decent holds on the entire pitch. Just little smeary blobs and crystals. The background is dead trees from a recent bushfire.
go malcolm go!
yep - any feedback is good feedback. Criticism is good...
nice pic! - is the the background de-focused in p-shop?
Nice one - pity about the muscle flexing on the summit!
nice to see someone smiling!
don't touch the framing - it is un-conventional and that makes it great!
Amazing. One of the best on this site!
Camera is good!
10 10 10.... super inspirational
why can't i vote zero.....
what a great photo. stunning colour, moment, texture.. a real work of art.
kent's 22 ish i think! - and single.
This was Kents second go after the gear was placed on lead on the first attempt. The route is half gear half bolts.
I don't think anyone repeated the route prior to the removal of the hold.
Like most routes in Australia the route is semi-bolted. If you can place trad then you do it.
This is not photoshoped!
At last a decent pic of this excellent route.
Nice pic Lee!
great pic - is that a big ugly chain at the end of the route?
The rock quality is bullet hard quartzite sandstone. You can't get better rock than this!
nice to have you back online Jorg! congrats on the Serpentine tick.
V2 ish - the first ascent was only done on the weekend!
Its is a 25m pitch - which finishes just under the roof with the black streak.
Many of these bolts were used as toprope anchors!
I would agree that the USA has more world class rock that is climbable all year round for much of the country. Sandstone, limestone, granite - its all there. More more wildnerness than Europe as well.
I have no idea about V grades. It was a first ascent so it could be all wrong!
We call them key-hole hangers In Australia. They fit over 10mm machine bolts bashed/glued into the rock.
Now that looks five stars!
Let he who does not use chalk speak out. All others can shut the FU. Our crags are not white limestone or white granite thus chalk stands out against the orange rock. It is not as bad as these photos show. Much of this cliff is blank and unclimbable so is un-chalked.
Total hieght of wall is about 200ft
wooo - looks scary. Leg breaker for sure...
and to confuse the issue even more there is a bolted 5.14b just to the left of this climb!
10a is 19 - 11a is 22
85mm fixed lens. f2.0 i think.
Yep - its tough only climbing orange overhangs every week. I wish for mossy granite slabs....
Who needs anatomy classes when you have the real thing. Total freakn freaky!
nice contrast of colors!
Looks like some wicked horizontal handjams!
To see a shot from the reverse angle showing the cave (and rope) below him go here http://www.mrppp.com.au/nhb/reports/12062004/pages/Weaveworld%20Jono2.htm
As a professional photographer i take great offence to
your claim of photoshopping. I DID NOT REMOVE THE
ROPE. It is under his right foot - its a giant cave
below him and he has just emerged onto the finish
slab. I don't photo edit my photos to make them more
'dramatic'. He is wearing a black harness on black
pants. Please look more closely before defaming
someone on a public website. I spend hours trying to
get the perfect shot - to be then burnt by your stupid
The photo setup - there is a further overhung finish to this route - so it was just a plain rap down. I pushed myself out a bit with my feet and took the photo at the moment i was as far from the rock as i coudl be. I cranked the camera up to a fast shutter speed so it wasn't blurry!
thanks guys! apolgies accepted!
This pic was in a Black Diamond catalog a few years back. Amazing picture - really beautiful in hi-rez.
This crag looks amazing. I love pocketed volcanic rock.
It is the softist grade 25 in Oz! A really nice route as well.
That looks awesome!
stunning area. pure paradise.
10 - great photo and great caption. I wish others would spend as much time explaining their photos!
nice color! Is the horizon all worng?
That rock looks amazing! Shame about the foot leaving the frame of this pic.
Shooting high contrast in the middle of the day isn't ideal. I shot a good series from this climb - and I thought this frame had the best action.
Nice texture and good use of B&W
Great light. I really like the warmth of this pic...
10 - the village in the little cloud is totally magic.
Yep it is Doug's dog called Jed! He is sniffing for new dog sized boulder problems...
who is giving these a 10? argg!
shame about all the top-ropes...
Great colors and framing.
mummy! that looks bloody scary....
yes - i was on rappel
straight to 10 marty b!
yay - finally some worthwhile actual climbing shots in the top ten!
Looks like France!
Totally original. Nice one!
Now that is some crazy limestone! It scares me...
no rotation. look at the gear on his harness.
yes - that was a great upside down whipper when the rope caught around my leg. Totally unexpected.
For gods sake.... this is not fake. Jorg is a camera master.. give him some respect.
Great shot. Awesome sky...
one of the best bouldering pics i have seen
photo approved blue!
Great angle. The light (flash) frames the pic perfectly.
Whats with the date stamp?
It is all trad. Mostly medium sized wires and a few small cams.
10!!! The best pic i have ever seen of Frog. Amazing Phil. I love the XXXX shirt - total winner.
Awesome perspective Phil. It is a seven diamond experience!
This photo screams atmosphere. Really wicked shot. I gave it 10!
She's a redhead with flush cheeks! It was also warm morning sunrise.
The scenery might be a clue that its not Scotland!
Smith basalt rocks my world!
Awesome. Very nice technically and artistically. 10.
Some of the routes are up to 60ft high at Stanage.
