that rock looks amazingly out of scale

View this Photo
how do you protect that thing?, thats an awesome looking climb!

View this Photo
im confused, you have 2 biners and a sling- so why is the rope threough the sling?

View this Photo
lockers all the way up, huh?
thats security

View this Photo
looks more like a picture of all your stuff than the climb

View this Photo
it looks like there might be some good face climbs to your right, but i dont know what the bolting ethic is there.

View this Photo
i could be wrong (i usually am) but isnt a "top rope onsight" an oxymoron?

View this Photo
whats with the size of the photo? and Hood isnt that bad, if you consider the number of people that actually climb it every year.

View this Photo
but the cans have the advantage of being crushed down for storage on big walls

he may not catch you, but it looks like he'd do a good job breaking your fall.

View this Photo
whats with the rack on tr?

View this Photo
what is that cam? it looks pretty sweet, I like how thin the lobes are!

View this Photo
I might be dumb for asking, but thats not real is it? you do realize 99.9% of the people in the world have no idea what a tricam is, dont you? so Im going to have to agree w/ mtnjohn- not the best idea for a tat

having your shirt tucked in your boxers might help you send that highball... if you had a beanie to match.

I hope you remembered to bring you ice axes before going into that cave. you never know when you'll run into cave dwelling/man eating zombie creatures!

Shiny!!!!!

View this Photo
cuz u have boobies! most guys don't... actually i take that back, most guys do; and they shouldn't climb shirtless either.

View this Photo
Ive gotta say I dont like that particular climb, but I love smith!

View this Photo
is that gyp board on the walls and ceiling? thats usually not the best for climbing walls, its kind of easy to put a foot through. Other than that, im truly jealous, thats one of the nicer looking home walls/rooms Ive seen.

View this Photo
just a question, but whats with the spotlight on the sea cliff?

View this Photo
that rack seems to be worth more than I make in a year!

View this Photo
that looks like a fun roof. I love "easy" roof problems :)

View this Photo
the only thing limiting her baddassitude of the photo is the toproping 5.8. No doubt by the looks of her she could lead 12's and 13's.

View this Photo
thats a cute... uh... rock!

View this Photo
I want one of those! That would actually make a good climbing shirt too!
Its a great photo too btw, I like the ropes and lid in the back.

View this Photo
I climbed the replica in the columbia gorge once, course those aren't quite stone, and only have chimney climbs. nice photo btw

View this Photo
so why not use lighter springs. The holding power is not dependant on springs.
that is the coolest thing ever btw.

View this Photo
Ive always wanted to do this!

View this Photo
sure, astronauts wear them (diapers and onsies), so why not climbers!

View this Photo
so... whats with the rope ladder?

View this Photo
I feel like the photo is a little cut off, i don't know if 12' of crack counts as sustained 10d.

View this Photo
from that photo, that looks like a pretty hairy second, with a nasty swing potential

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars I like the shadow/clouds, very nice. A little underexposed (or over photoshopped), I think.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars hard core!!! nice job!!! and a great photo!!! looks like that cam is a bit tipped out, thank goodness for cam stops I guess.

View this Photo
no, two different people.
I'd recomend looking at other outlets for "adventure" than bouldering. Still its a little funny I guess.

View this Photo
it always seemed to me the hardest part of this climb would be the approach

View this Photo
thats called tri-axial loading!

View this Photo
that looks like a tricam lovers heaven!!!

View this Photo
I see crimps and side pulls, but I suppose those would be variations on the slopers and pinches.

View this Photo
From the photo I'd say its more of a ramp than a slab. It looks kind of fun though.

View this Photo
how can the fact that its chipped be substantiated if its 2k yrs old? wouldn't erosion wear away any signs of chipping?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars cool! the climber needs to be a little more in focus, and the rock she's sitting on needs to be a little more out of focus though. probably hard to do with a point and shoot. but a cool composition none-the-less.

View this Photo
whats with the haul bag on Steins? Did you spend the night up there?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars cool shot, wheres this at? I love closely spaced bolts!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars great lighting, the water fall in the back looks cool too. I bet the spray made those pinches even worse!

View this Photo
very cool shot, I always wanted to climb here, but never really got into bouldering that much.
looks like a fun climb with a potentially scary landing.

View this Photo
I was actually thinking it was more like a photo from one of those ghost hunters tv specials. cool self portrait.

View this Photo
nice! looking real strong, its always cool to see bad ass photos of bad ass chicks!

View this Photo
sweet looking route, but that looks like slab... not an overhang.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Killer shot, crazy climb!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars sweet looking climb

View this Photo
thats like a full on snow splitter!!!!!! sketchy!

View this Photo
every photo i see of horse pens makes me want to go there less and less, it looks cool for those who can climb that smooth slopey crap though!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars awesome top roping shot

View this Photo
looks fun! more important is where is that?

View this Photo
looks like a crumbly pile of gravel i used to climb on/fall off of.

View this Photo
thats kinda trippy looking

View this Photo
this slab always looks interesting to me, it seems like more of a hike than a climb. is it just every photo shows it at a lower angle than it actually is?

View this Photo
ive taken shoes, webbing, and a cam back to rei, none of which had the tag on it. the webbing and the cam were damaged and it was an exchange though.

View this Photo
I'm amazed there haven't been any comments on this photo already!?!

View this Photo
was it real? ;)

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars looks like a lot of fun!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I love this pic, so desolate looking!

View this Photo
yeah, i was going to say something clever about rope management too, but now that you mention it, my belays are almost always worse! (I hate hanging belays)

View this Photo
not the best photo, but that looks like fun

View this Photo
gymtastic!!!!

View this Photo
hmmm, usually that goes the other way

View this Photo
looks like some nasty fall potential with the rope between the legs & last piece of pro behind you... a recipe for rope burned nuts!

View this Photo
forgot you coat or what?? you probably wont need it when your climber falls on you and kills you both!!!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars photo quality isn't great, its a top rope pic of crappy rock... but that shadow is awesome!!!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I really want to climb this some day soon!

View this Photo
so whats w/ the top rope on a boulder problem?

View this Photo
that seems kinda juggy for an 11b and kinda top ropey for a sport climb

View this Photo
looks like the opening set from tremors (2?)
cool shot though, beautiful landscape

View this Photo
thats a crazy high first bolt

View this Photo
1 out of 5 stars agreed, 1 star

View this Photo
oh, and its cheating to have someone hold it for you

View this Photo
we used to do this problem on 4 legged chairs w/ no armrests, a table seems like it should be way easier.

View this Photo
I'd clip it!

View this Photo
it looks like this route/wall sees a little bit of traffic, just judging from the chalk all over the place

View this Photo
running it out a little?

View this Photo
with pants that cool that must have been the warm up to the warm up to the warm up to the climb you were redpointing that day

View this Photo
theres at least a weeks worth of climbing there. a lot of it is hard slab, which sucks. most of it is easy/moderate slab though.

View this Photo
Wheres the worst photos of RC.com thread when we need it! ;)

View this Photo
cut it and climb shorter routes!

View this Photo
thinking of those hands climbing up a hunk of basalt slab is like fingers on a chalk board in my mind!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars cool, looks like your walking a power line!

View this Photo
thats some scary far bolt spacing! any pro in that crack?

View this Photo
I don't usually like silhouette shots, but i like the colors, form and contrast on this one.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Why doesn't this go free? forgive my ignorance, never climbed @ zion before

View this Photo
alpine? isn't bouldering still considered bouldering no matter how far you have to hike to get there?

View this Photo
is that a shovel handle at the right of the photo?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars sick bro!!!!

View this Photo
looks like a sharks tooth

View this Photo
she looks way too relaxed to be that steep on those holds.

View this Photo
a little over board with the photoshoppery (or not far enough).
