Two hour slog?? Its more like a 30 minute jaunt.
Must have missed that one. Would have climbed it on general principal. First leah huh, Props.....
That picture looks nasty, but it gives no perspective of how brutal that problem really is. One must remember he's overhainging at about 80 degreese...with a progressively narrowing crack down to a fist jam.
I know a few places those Valley Giants would come in handy. I need to get off my a$$ and order some of those sometime.
OOh, those rocks look comfortable. Nothing like a talus mattress when you have a case of AMS.
How'd you like those anchors? I pulled one of the old ones out by hand. Their bomber now:)
Damn, way to much crap on your harness for Beaver st.
I did stuck!
In fact, this cam is bigger than my head. Its range goes from 5.7 in to 9.0 in (145mm to 299mm). The trigger to spacer bar distance is only 3.75in (95mm) and the trigger travel is only 2.5 in (64mm). So, one handed operation of the cam is not a problem. Oh, and the total weight is 31 oz. Not something you take along just incase, but manageable enough for certain tasks.
Yes I know, my photo is borderline plagerism....
But my cam is still bigger than yours ;)
Thats not a rock wall, It's a plastic wall. Big difference. However, I hope you had fun and keep at it.
Do what ever it takes to leave that sh!thole they call Florida...And don't post pics here that remind me that such a horrible place exists.
Oh great! Good one guys... Now all that cliff is good for is GRAVEL. Sheer Wankery I say.
Big gear? I bet you could sew that thing up with a set of chocks.
^^^ Yes, a #2 C4 is placed up high about 10ft to my right.....still a no fall zone.
Haha, The body already stunk before he fell, so we figrued he couldn't get any worse if we left him there for a while.
Hey Dave, a set of nuts is all you need. Cams are for gear whores. Besides, its only Tombstone.
That aint "burly" 5.9. Maybe with all that B.S. hangin off your harness. Gotta break you of that habbit.
Ehh, I've taken worse....much worse.
Looks like fun... anybody do the chimney to the slab top out with a knifeblade landing?
I like it...
Your chalk bag's touching the ground and you're one short bump to the top out. That's making the most of a bad situation I'd say...
Sit starts are lame... and contrived.
There's the 70's video thing again...
Early 70's even.
Whats with the colours? I feel like I'm in a video from the 70's
Black and white's cool... but it would have been a better affect to be able to see his bashed up elbo's and bloody fingers.
Crop the hairy doe boy out... Please!
Looks like a good enduro fest.
Munus points for the ugly drill hole in the rock....yuck.
Spotter's touching you, that disqualifies the accent...
I'm sorry, but you'll have to do it again.
Looks like just another squeeze chimney in the Valley. Would probably be rated 5.10 or something though.
Placing cams over your head where your hands might need to go is poor technique.
Nice shot though!!
I wouldn't exactly call 110' a "long" pitch. Feels like a long haul sometimes though.
Sure glad you didn't fall right when this photo was shot. You'd have a rope burn up your leg and would have busted your head open when it flipped you upside down.
Traversing? Moving over into the arete? Run it out? Rope drag???
Are you sure you were on Tombstone. It's a strait shot to the top. You'd have to totally go out of your way to create rope drag.
Glad to see he's got your full attention there.
It looks like shit.
Three ropes??? WTF?
Didn't know Montana had big stuff.
Wait a minute, what's the quality of rock like?
All taped up for the Groove huh...
Let me guess, Corrigation's next?
The Boxcar traverse has nothing to do with climbing up over the lip. You have to stay low. Otherwise it's only V2..
Those are the saddle boulders.
I'd more than likely go strait for that offwidth, but that patina to the arete looks good too. Does it go?
I thought I was looking at a shot of three clones. Then it hit me, that guy is trying to get away from brain eating zombie/clones.
The mad pad was the give away.
I used to live in Trona, thank god my parents moved.
There are a few routes out there. They're all crap, the rock is crap and I'm pretty sure its illegal (to bolt that is), but bouldering....... why not?
The water's about 15ft deep there. When the water's a no flow, the bolts are more than justified. When the water level is high, it's a swift moving river with steep slab on both sides. Theirs also some narley rapids a couple hundred feet down river, and a dunk in it might be the last swim you ever take. It's also a high quality polished sustained slab traverse IMO. Just cuz you got your ass spanked and took the dunk is no reason to be bitter toward the route.
Looks like the climber is "lichen" it. Hard looking start.
I can attest to the "bomberness" (I like that word) of these cams. I trust them as much if not more than my C4's.
How long before this winds up in the worst photos thread???
I see ya hauled the spare tire up there with ya...
I dig the hair, that's bigwall hair there.
That's an awesome shot. Good looking granite, looks like Sierra granite. What's the slab go at off to the right? Looks clean.
You backed up two pins with three pieces???
Excess is the mother of all slow fuks!!!
I like that route in the center of the major formation. Looks like some junk, maybe a wide section or two down low, but the second pitch looks spectacular. Nice arching dihedral to an undercling out the roof. Third pitch looks good too. Nice steep patina face climbing back into the left leaning dihedral to an easy finish. Classic!
I'd climb that chimney to the far right too, just for sh!ts and giggles.
Somebody pull the string!
That route always looks better than it is. Though it looks good from every angle, the climbing is actually kinda bunk. Great shot of it though.
Its kind of a cool looking feature, but the climbing looks more like a bushwack. Do you sling branches as pro?
Is that the top of the Swan Slabs?
What's with the haul bag and all that gear?
looks like a pile of shit.
You ever try handjamming an iceburg???
Props for style sierraclimber1. Fixed draws have there place for sure, but it's good to know people are looking out for when they don't. Keep shuteye pristine, even if it means setting up your own fixed draws on projects. Nice shot, 5 stars.
Huh, what's the one on the left go at? Love them strait in splitters. Looks like the hulk, but with more choss.
The toprope kills it though.
Looks inhospitable, road warrior like.
Looks like Sierra choss. I like.
How's that spring tention system workin for ya. Doesn't look near strong enough to produce good results. I'd imagint thats the biggest obstacle to overcome when designing and building a cam.
Turn that photo back around the way it was shot, looks generic (for lack of a better word). It's a great shot, I'd just like to see it turned around. Cochamo.... becomeing quite the hot spot ain't it.
Great photo, I really like the lighting. Daniel Woods is certainly an amazing climber. Too bad he's an ego driven asshole.
Major camera tilt going on there. I don't know, that's all I see in this photo.
You've done enough practicing, now get on some real shiz!!!
That's Yosemite falls not Bridal Veil dumbass. ;)
Wow! How extraordinarily.............. GAY!
Wow! That looks Rad. Piss poor feet, holds faceing the wrong way... cool.
Turn the pic back around. Looks St00pid that way. Decent shot though. I like the route name... fitting.
You should get a professional, or professional amateur to take some photos and make a calendar. I'll belay!
I love that rounded wall, not an easy task. Nice carpentry skills there my friend.
Pffft, your last piece is right there... You should have jumped for it. It's a GREEN alien for cryin out loud.
What is this, a fukkin dating site all of a sudden???
Ha ha, what a douche.
