When you climb barefoot, do you chalk your feet?
>> I was taught that one should always stand while lead belaying... -- roseraie
The belayer is graciously offering up his body as a crash pad.
My wife is 5 months pregnant with our first child, and although I did catch her fondling a few low holds, bouldering is off the menu for her and the baby right now. Since she's a lot smarter than me, she probably wouldn't have tried to climb that crap anyway... or at least she would have been prepared with better footwear and some sort of floating crash pad.
bonus points for crossing the river to take the shot. Wish I was there.
I didn't mean to start a geology flame war!!!
There's a lot of formations like this in Bathsheba, but this one is the most prominent. Usually the surf is tremendous here since this coast faces the open Atlantic. I've seen video of waves breaking OVER this formation. It's a major surfing spot.
...and to clarify, I bailed 6 feet HIGHER, meaning my hands were at about 12 feet and my bleeding feet were where my hands are in the photo. I left a big hunk of my arm skin up there at the high point to mark the attempt.
My great-grandmother lived in Bathsheba only yards from this beach in the mid-1800's. We were in Barbados to try to find her house - unfortunately no longer standing, but the church that was next door to her home was still there. I found a photo from the 1930's that showed the beach and the ruined foundation of the house she lived in. The coral formation in this photo is there too... looking exactly the same as today.
It's blue because everyone knows you need to keep red heads out of direct sunlight! Must be dawn or dusk ;-) Awesome shot, and (coming from another red head) beautiful hair.
