You take good care of this little guy, you hear?

This is a great photo--looks like you had a perfect day. The only thing that would make it better would be to include your happy climbing partner on the summit of this 12 pitch route.

This route is not La Ola but a new one called Surfin' the Wave which is not yet in the guidebook. Info is on the bulletin board at Homero's. You can lower to the ground on this one with a 70 meter rope.

View this Photo
It should be mentioned that only the top 7 pitches of the route are visible in this photo.

The name of this route is Estrellita, not La Estrellita--there is a subtle but distinct difference. Ask your Spanish teacher.

View this Photo
Nice shot--I'm glad I get to see this every single day. Makes you want to get on those walls!

View this Photo
It does, indeed, look like the anchors of Sleepwalking!!

p.s. this two pitch routew is now in the 11th edition of the local guidebook

Esta ruta se llama Quickdraw (Tiroloco) McGraw.
Son dos largos de 30 metros. En el Potrero Chcio cuerdas de 60 metros son de rigor y de 70 metros mejor!!!

View this Photo
Gettin Wood is my favorite route on the spires.

Just for info sake there is a new 14 pitch route bolted to the summit you see in the background--needs cleaning and probably won't be open until late summer.

View this Photo
It should be pointed out that this "summit" is actually a spire 1/3rd of the way to the true summit!

View this Photo
Excellent photo, too bad the climber isn't a little better defined. EPC looks awesome when the clouds are drifting low. This is pitch 2 of Estrellita.

View this Photo
That tree might be lonely today, but being on the summit of Estrellita it receives visitors just about every day!!! By the way, this is in Las Estrellas not the Mota Wall.

View this Photo
The climber is about 75 feet off the ground (25m!!)

View this Photo
Space Boyz has 11 pitches, the climbers are on pitch 3. The summit of this route is only 1/3rd of the way up the mountain!!!

View this Photo
this is just one tiny part of the area!!!

View this Photo
this is just a small fraccion of the great amount of rock to be found here!!!

View this Photo
All you macho men are welcome to climb these great cracks in the dihedrals with your trad gear and you get the extra thrill of skipping the bolts!!

View this Photo
This is the Mini Super Wall, the route is called Hey, Buddy, You Gonna Eat That? The crux is still 15 feet higher. Climber above is at the anchors of Left-over Man.

View this Photo
I assume you are referring to Fish and Clips???

View this Photo
Too bad you missed the last pitch of Will the Wolf Survive--you'll just have to go back and do it!!!

View this Photo
Awesome photo, dude!! Great view of the summit of Will the Wolf Survive, also.

View this Photo
The horizon line cuts the picture in half--definitely crop out some of the dark area at the bottom.

View this Photo
Yowza!!!

View this Photo
If I could vote I'd give it a 10. Viva Mexico!!!

View this Photo
The way to climb Space Boyz in the Summer is to start at 4 pm after the wall is back in the shade and bring headlamps, should you need them, for the descent.

View this Photo
I saw this scene in a dream a few years ago.

View this Photo
Potrero survival skill: simul-rapping whenever possible will save lots of time on these long descents!!!

View this Photo
Rope Draaag???

View this Photo
go, johnnie, go!

View this Photo
In climbing the word nailing has a different meaning.

View this Photo
What, you might ask, is an old trad route doing with bolts?? About 10 years ago someone went up there and bolted it without knowing that it was an old trad route.

View this Photo
This route is 11 pitches (ends at a mini summit about a third of the way up the wall) and has been climbed in two and one-half hours, car to car!! The climbers in the photo are at the top of pitch 5.

View this Photo
This does not look like Pangea--looks more like Aguja Celo Rey.

View this Photo
This is not the Spires--it's the Virgin Canyon

Aguja Celo Rey-pitch 2

View this Photo
Ya gotta love it!!

View this Photo
I once led this route in full blizzard conditions!

A friend of mine who had never been to DL soloed it onsight and liked it so much he soloed it again while his wife videotaped it!!

View this Photo
...and then there's Rodman who led this route on trad gear which means that he soloed the crux!

View this Photo
Those vehicles are about 700 feet below the climber.

View this Photo
El Potrero Chico is northwest of Monterrey, actually.

View this Photo
Mileski is, actually, a person. This section of the Sense of Religion Wall was named for the late, great, Jack Mileski.

View this Photo
This looks like the anchor at the top of Pancho Villa Rides again, not Snott girlz.

View this Photo
Que lastima que no hay mas luz en su cara.

View this Photo
Nice shot. I once led this route in the middle of a blizzard!!

View this Photo
You need to come to El Potrero Chico where you can climb big walls and leave all this junk behind!! All you'll need is that rope, harness, chalk bag and quickdraws--and a helmet!

View this Photo
Esta vista no se podria tomar desde La Mota--es mas probable del Mini Super o Las Estrellas.

View this Photo
Almost makes me want to go back to trad climbing!!

View this Photo
Es una ruta interesante en roca no muy buena y por eso se llama Espantasuegra. Quisas le hubiera gustado mas si la hubiera escalado en punta.

View this Photo
There are actually 3 possible first pitches to this route--Craig's original and two variations by Dane Bass. What you came for is the awesome second pitch dihedral!!

View this Photo
This is a very cool shot!

View this Photo
WOW!!! NICE!!!

View this Photo
You're looking pretty hot there, girl. When are you coming back to El Potrero Chico?

View this Photo
How deep a bolt can this place, say on limestone??

View this Photo
Reaching the Ocotillo cactus that you see below the climber was the motivation for putting up those first seven pitches

View this Photo
Yeah, that's me, and I'll probably be running into you this summer since I'll be spending it in Wisconsin.

View this Photo
Devil's Lake might be small but it's a true gem in the climbing firmament.

View this Photo
If I remember correctly there is only one bolt on the whole pitch.

View this Photo
13 hours? I thought I was slow!!

View this Photo
Go, Johnny, go!

View this Photo
Yikes, looks like she needs to learn better technique!!

View this Photo
Smooth as evening dusk!

View this Photo
This turned out pretty cool--too bad you can't see the climber better.

View this Photo
This summit has been climbed--albeit by a round-about way!

View this Photo
That's the hard way to get to the top of the first pitch of Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

View this Photo
Se ve muy interesante esto pero me sorprende que permiten escalar en zona arqueologica. Como es el tiempo ahi? Me imagino que hay un calor muy humedo. Las aguas termales son calientes?

View this Photo
What kind of rock is it? Looks like maybe quartzite??

View this Photo
If I could vote you'd get a 10.

View this Photo
Yankee Clipper, pitch 1 of 15.

View this Photo
Looks like Aculco Canyon in central Mexico.

View this Photo
VIVA MEXICO!!

View this Photo
Esto se ve muy bueno. La roca es arenisca??

View this Photo
That is a great route, and all the grades at Devil's Lake are stiff.

View this Photo
Nice angle on this shot. I once led this route in a pouring rain wearing a pair of cheap K-mart tennis shoes!

View this Photo
Nice view of the climbers on Black Cat Bone!

View this Photo
Si vas a armar rutas en punta debes modificar tu taladro para que no pese tanto.

View this Photo
That was a perfectly good bolt until a large rock hit it while we were cleaning the route--we left it that way to scare the weenies.

2 out of 5 stars Too many distracting elements for this to be considered good.

5 out of 5 stars Nice colors, nice action

View this Photo
He's joking folks-unless he got a late start. In August Estrellita is in the shade all morning. If you time it right you can then do the rap off the other side of the fin in the afternoon when that side goes into the shade!!

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars That's making good use of a vegetable hold.

View this Photo
I've used that head trick more than once to grab a quick rest--not ridiculous at all.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars In case anyone is wondering, this is the Outrage Wall at Potrero Chico. Too bad the climber isn't a bit more visible.

View this Photo
Climbing is climbing.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Maryland--who would have thought? Good shot except that the climber is too centered--would be better to one side and up or down a bit.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars VIVA MEXICO!!!

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Cool. The upper right side of the photo is too washed out and distracting.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Nice. The climber is a little too centered in the image, otherwise this would get 5 stars.

4 out of 5 stars Echale, Spock!!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Nice, very nice. Is this route bolted?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Most of this route was originally climbed on trad gear and then retro-bolted. Nobody brings trad gear to EPC.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars very nice

View this Photo
Nice photo! Great perspective and nice color saturation. However, as an old-time climber who used to hip belay I agree with stardust.

View this Photo
I like the blur too. Give it 3 stars.

View this Photo
Now that looks like big fun--hard work but fun. Great photo.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Very nice--almost looks like a hand-tinted black & white.

View this Photo
Beautiful--great shot!!

View this Photo
I wonder what those two guys are doing together 15 feet up on Mota-rolla?

View this Photo
why is this in big wall? looks like you are top-roping.

View this Photo
red point or top rope??

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars This would be a great shot if we could see the climber's face and if it did not have that distracting rope behind her.

View this Photo

That rope is not behind his foot; he's doing that just right!!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars It wasn't all that long ago that the only way to get here was a two day horseback ride. Today it is a national park and there are some good routes going up on those beautiful big walls.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Niiice!!!!

View this Photo
Looks like pitch 15 or 16.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Ditto!!!

View this Photo
Don Raul Revilla probably climbed these 50 years ago!!!

View this Photo
I like the monochromatic effect and the climber's stance, but the cropping is bad. This would be much more dramatic if the climber were more to the left or right and if you would eliminate the distractions in the bottom left corner.

View this Photo
FA with the draws already up???

View this Photo
You just place all the pro you want and don't let anybody give you any crap!!

View this Photo
no, no, I like it just as it is: zoomed in and blurry!

View this Photo
It's hard to get a sense of scale in this shot--that wall is 700 meters of vertical limestone.

View this Photo
This is a nice photo but it's not High Cliff--looks more like the North Shore of Lake Superior.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Scott123--turn it upside-down and you'll see how it was shot. Love those bolted cracks.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Very nice--too bad the climber gets a little lost in the shadows. Viva Mexico!!

While I approve of the way you are using the figure 8, I would recommend that you upgrade to a better device--they are not that expensive.

Sorry, this is not the Sense of Religion or the Mota Wall. You are looking at Estrellita peak with Los Lobos canyon on the left, Fin de Semana in the center and Las Estrellas to the right.

5 out of 5 stars You're wrong--the first bolt hanger on the route to the left has been missing for many years but you wouldn't know that since you're a newcomer. Frank is doing well.
Before I bolted that first pitch of Double Trouble I had a number of people climb it and tell me if it was worth bolting since you can get to the second pitch via other routes. Everybody said it was a good independent line and to go ahead and bolt it. Double Trouble is completely different from the other routes near it so you should have climbed it before spouting off.

5 out of 5 stars Bud, I've bolted 248 pitches in the Potrero of which only 4 might be considered to be a bit close to other established routes and almost all of them put in ground up. So I don't think I have a problem with ethics.

5 out of 5 stars Yes, the Lithuanians. You can see a bunch more photos on my March 28 blog posting. The fifth pitch is especially good.

5 out of 5 stars Yeah, that's near the top of a 200 foot 4th class approach pitch. It was kinda socked in that day which lends to the atmosphere.

Looks like a top-rope self-belay, not really a solo. Should have had Shelby belay you and got it on lead.

Nice topo but it will only take you to Satori and 3 Stone Place but not to the actual Zapatista route.

5 out of 5 stars Thanks. I'll be posting a whole series of dreamscapes over the next few months.

Don't be so sensitive--everyone is entitled to comment on your photos and that doesn't automatically make them an asshole. Personally I find top rope photos boring.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Techically this is not a great photo but I'm giving it 5 stars because it's obvious that you're having a lot of fun and that's what it's all about.

5 out of 5 stars Harness, check; belay device, check; hand positions, check; pas, check; helmet, check; go pro on helmet, well, ok; extra rope clipped to side of harness, ??

5 out of 5 stars I don't understand people who say "nce pic" but don't bother to vote a rating. I really am curious about that extra rope.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I guess what confused me is that the extra rope seems to be tied somewhere in the middle, not at the end, which would be the logical place for trailing a rope.

5 out of 5 stars For those not familiar with the Potrero, you are looking at the Sense of Religion Wall and the Potrero Diamond from the bivy ledge atop the 12th pitch of Timewave Zero.

4 out of 5 stars Not airbrushed but definitely experimental. The effect I'm going for is that of a black and white photo with a splash of color. Seems to work better with landscapes.
