5 out of 5 stars tim: -- you're dead on -- its a 25 red + a polarizer filter -- taken around 12:30 pm .. so its dead on the middle of the day -- lost alot of detail -- but gained alot of contrast ... the high contrast allowed me to use the few clouds in the sky ..

5 out of 5 stars braaaaaadley: -- this frame was shot on Kodak TCN-400 .. (thats their off-the shelf C-41 black and white film) .. i now use teir other C-41 often (Supra BW) .. great grain (as sharp as TMAX-100 in my opinion) --


-- i was in yosemite last weekend -- AWESOME weather -- no crowds -- walked right up to after six at 10 am .. and got right on it -- no waiting ..

Owens is a sport crag -- the ethics there are that anything is boltable .. you'll find lots of cracks that have bolts right next to them. --

awesome shot -- the beauty of this pitch is that all the placements underneath the roof are C1.. fun to lead and fun to follow ..

i think the flake section goes free at a failry moderate rate .. until you hit the roof..

there is a continous crack .. but its tiny .. and the gear sucks .. (in some places the crack goes down to RURP and head size) .. this was definately the technichal crux for me..

4 out of 5 stars i still can't believe that some people have freed that pitch .. there are no footholds!

very nice work -- i find that the lens flare is placed too much in the center and takes away from the effect .. (it makes itself the center of attention) -- where the more interesting stuff is to the sides) --
