that rock looks amazingly out of scale
how do you protect that thing?, thats an awesome looking climb!
im confused, you have 2 biners and a sling- so why is the rope threough the sling?
lockers all the way up, huh?
looks more like a picture of all your stuff than the climb
it looks like there might be some good face climbs to your right, but i dont know what the bolting ethic is there.
i could be wrong (i usually am) but isnt a "top rope onsight" an oxymoron?
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.
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.
whats with the rack on tr?
what is that cam? it looks pretty sweet, I like how thin the lobes are!
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!
cuz u have boobies! most guys don't... actually i take that back, most guys do; and they shouldn't climb shirtless either.
Ive gotta say I dont like that particular climb, but I love smith!
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.
just a question, but whats with the spotlight on the sea cliff?
that rack seems to be worth more than I make in a year!
that looks like a fun roof. I love "easy" roof problems :)
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.
thats a cute... uh... rock!
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.
I climbed the replica in the columbia gorge once, course those aren't quite stone, and only have chimney climbs. nice photo btw
so why not use lighter springs. The holding power is not dependant on springs.
that is the coolest thing ever btw.
Ive always wanted to do this!
sure, astronauts wear them (diapers and onsies), so why not climbers!
so... whats with the rope ladder?
I feel like the photo is a little cut off, i don't know if 12' of crack counts as sustained 10d.
from that photo, that looks like a pretty hairy second, with a nasty swing potential
I like the shadow/clouds, very nice. A little underexposed (or over photoshopped), I think.
hard core!!! nice job!!! and a great photo!!! looks like that cam is a bit tipped out, thank goodness for cam stops I guess.
no, two different people.
I'd recomend looking at other outlets for "adventure" than bouldering. Still its a little funny I guess.
it always seemed to me the hardest part of this climb would be the approach
thats called tri-axial loading!
that looks like a tricam lovers heaven!!!
I see crimps and side pulls, but I suppose those would be variations on the slopers and pinches.
From the photo I'd say its more of a ramp than a slab. It looks kind of fun though.
how can the fact that its chipped be substantiated if its 2k yrs old? wouldn't erosion wear away any signs of chipping?
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.
whats with the haul bag on Steins? Did you spend the night up there?
cool shot, wheres this at? I love closely spaced bolts!
great lighting, the water fall in the back looks cool too. I bet the spray made those pinches even worse!
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.
I was actually thinking it was more like a photo from one of those ghost hunters tv specials. cool self portrait.
nice! looking real strong, its always cool to see bad ass photos of bad ass chicks!
sweet looking route, but that looks like slab... not an overhang.
Killer shot, crazy climb!
sweet looking climb
thats like a full on snow splitter!!!!!! sketchy!
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!
awesome top roping shot
looks fun! more important is where is that?
looks like a crumbly pile of gravel i used to climb on/fall off of.
thats kinda trippy looking
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?
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.
I'm amazed there haven't been any comments on this photo already!?!
was it real? ;)
looks like a lot of fun!
I love this pic, so desolate looking!
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)
not the best photo, but that looks like fun
hmmm, usually that goes the other way
looks like some nasty fall potential with the rope between the legs & last piece of pro behind you... a recipe for rope burned nuts!
forgot you coat or what?? you probably wont need it when your climber falls on you and kills you both!!!
photo quality isn't great, its a top rope pic of crappy rock... but that shadow is awesome!!!
I really want to climb this some day soon!
so whats w/ the top rope on a boulder problem?
that seems kinda juggy for an 11b and kinda top ropey for a sport climb
looks like the opening set from tremors (2?)
cool shot though, beautiful landscape
thats a crazy high first bolt
agreed, 1 star
oh, and its cheating to have someone hold it for you
we used to do this problem on 4 legged chairs w/ no armrests, a table seems like it should be way easier.
I'd clip it!
it looks like this route/wall sees a little bit of traffic, just judging from the chalk all over the place
running it out a little?
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
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.
Wheres the worst photos of RC.com thread when we need it! ;)
cut it and climb shorter routes!
thinking of those hands climbing up a hunk of basalt slab is like fingers on a chalk board in my mind!
cool, looks like your walking a power line!
thats some scary far bolt spacing! any pro in that crack?
I don't usually like silhouette shots, but i like the colors, form and contrast on this one.
Why doesn't this go free? forgive my ignorance, never climbed @ zion before
alpine? isn't bouldering still considered bouldering no matter how far you have to hike to get there?
is that a shovel handle at the right of the photo?
looks like a sharks tooth
she looks way too relaxed to be that steep on those holds.
a little over board with the photoshoppery (or not far enough).
