One of my favs!! Great pic, Doug. My partner and I re-set the anchors on it last year, that aircraft cable was fraying pretty bad. Hope to nail it again this weekend :-).
Michael, you're a photography genius! What a great shot; the composition, lighting and depth are amazing. Keep on shooting.
That's awesome P-widdy! I was the first in the group to pop over the lip, am going back for the redpoint this weekend. My partner and I actually nailed Cocaine first and decided to just TR it. The rope is clipped to that bolt just over the lip and out of view.
Excellent shot, Bryce! Really pulls you into the photo, makes you feel the concentration and strain with him.
Talk about exposure!! Nice pic. - Mick
Yeah, I flailed in a glorious manner as well :D! But, had to at least give it a shot.
Gee, I can see why.... I didn't think they were supposed to bend like that.
Talk about "'Tween a rock and a hard place" :D
And THAT was the easy part!! The toe hook was bombproof and spinning through it took some time to get used to, but the mantle to top it out was actually the crux of it.
Please add this route to the Database w/ directions to it - that may be Saturday's quest. Thanks.
Probably... If I ever let them cut. Keep putting it off for summer climbing road trips.
Yeah, Bob was relegated to belay slave with me for this attempt.
Simply breathtaking. And the arch isn't bad either :P - Great shot Adam!
Great idea, but the background is too dark giving the impression of not enough composition to it. Just my thoughts.
Was up on it two days ago and that top block is now loose! Scary isn't the word - think Erica put it best, "...stretches the limitations of the slightest fear of heights."
Simpy <b>AMAZING</b>!! The shot, the climb and the move are all baffling - well done!!
Yeah, know what you mean P-widdy ~ my personal best without stepping down is 7. Great shot, Larry, one of the best spots after pulling through the second crux.
yeah, reminds me of that thin highball he skated up at SLC. Nice shot Adam!
Nice shot, Brad. I did this same route a few weeks ago for my first desert tower and the exposure was simply mind-numbing. Did you find that top block to be a bit loose? Felt like it was to us.
I assure you they do, Tom makes them himself. Simply amazing!!
<b>Simply spectacular!! Well-done, Andrew! Great shot too, Dan, truly captures the stark beauty of the Fishers.</b>
Looks like his feet just peeled and he's fighting to keep from popping off. Perfect timing with the shot!
Now THAT is a highball, complete with big nasty rock to land on if spotters don't get you onto the pad. Captures the pucker-factor of it, great shot!
Nice shot and that's an awesome heel hook!!
The greatest photo op in the fishers! I loved this route, but no picture can capture the exposure you face walking the "sidewalk" to get to that final corkscrew summit pitch. For those that haven't been or seen it, this final 40' caps a ~400' sandstone tower - the exposure is simply mind-numbing on this final pitch! Great shot, great route!
it's a 5.11c/d - that's pretty hard in my book - great shot Jorg, as always.
This shot screams old school from the lycra pants and 3/4 top La Sportiva's with socks to the bandana and twin or half ropes. Lovin' in. Classic!
Great pic of a great route! Watched a guy take two 30-footers onto that very placement on Tuesday before backing off it - stiff for a 5.9.
congrats, man! fun, stiff climb - one of the best in the Garden! Man I miss Colorado!!! Run up Cocaine once for me, would you.
talk about "generously spaced" bolts - that's a knee-skinner looking for a person to happen to! bold run-out man - well done!
Is that the same sheep shirt you wore in SLC two years ago - wow, that baby's got some miles on 'er.
Yeah, it's really just a one-move wonder, but it's a great move - you'll probably be able to grab the top while your feet are still on the slab below - my partner could, but I'm too short and had to lie-back it. Good luck with it Larry, you'll like it.
For the rest, it's shot from a weird angle, sort of a side view. Joe Aulwes' <a href=http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=34661>picture</a> shows a good shot from further away - this roof is just above the climber in his picture.
well-put Joe, I second his opinion
I did the exact same thing in the exact same spot on that climb many moons ago. I decided to try and lead it with too little gear, too little experience, and two little cajones - I was in WAY over my head that first time. A few months later I came back better prepared, logistically and mentally, and sent it. I can definitely relate to this poor guy.
