4 out of 5 stars Great shot! I just did Lucky Strikes a couple of weeks ago (toproping) and it was my first time pulling a roof, it's a fun route. Maybe someday I'll lead it . . .

So? I guess you prefer butt shots from 30 ft. up . . .

Okay, this is a really murky photo and I'm barely visible, but I don't have the heart to delete it since it was my first time outside . . .

4 out of 5 stars This is the spot that did me in on this route. I want to get back there and try it again, this time I'll pull that crux!

3 out of 5 stars You think that's bad, I couldn't even make it through the start on this route. A definite sandbag, very humiliating. I'll be back.

4 out of 5 stars Nice shot, great colors! Where's your rope?

4 out of 5 stars Nice photo! That route is on my ticklist just from the pictures I've seen.

Congratulations! It'll be nice to have a picture of your first climb to look back on as you progress.

Jay, if you need a partner for a Tallulah trip, let me know. I'm ready to go back!

4 out of 5 stars Glendalough, what a magical place! This brings back memories. On a month-long cycling trip through Ireland back in the 80s, I humped my heavily-loaded bike up into the Wicklow Mountains to Glendalough. Views like this made it worth the climb.

4 out of 5 stars Fantastic! I hope to be there someday soon.

2 out of 5 stars Block Route is a 5.8, and I never saw anyone lead it as anything but a single pitch when I was there. None of the routes to the tree ledge is a "nature hike."

5 out of 5 stars I really like black and white photography, especially when it's done as well as this. Great contrast!

4 out of 5 stars Nice shot, not the usual angle I see on Frosted Flake. That's a burly route. I can't wait to get back to Rumbling Bald!

1 out of 5 stars Not to mention that you posted the picture in the wrong climbing area! Better luck next time.

4 out of 5 stars This is a very cool series on this ascent; all in all, I like #2 the best of the four, but this is a great shot too!

4 out of 5 stars Very nice shot, beautiful rock!

4 out of 5 stars "some idiot rated this a five. moron." How do you know what individual ratings it got?? (Great shot, Gabe!)

4 out of 5 stars Excellent shot! I love Sunset climbing.

3 out of 5 stars Haha, you should audition for the Village People, Gabe! Just kidding, great intensity on what must have been a hard climb.

4 out of 5 stars Spectacular!

4 out of 5 stars Very nice shot! Glad to know a climb that's not 5.11+ can make it to the front page. :-)

4 out of 5 stars Beautiful, and great climbing!

Best photo ever posted on rc.com!

4 out of 5 stars Fantastic! I'm looking forward to Groover, but not while it's a blast furnace, I'll wait til fall.

Hats off to Shannon, hardest of the hardcore!

3 out of 5 stars Looks like a sidewalk in somewhat the same way you (climbsomething) look like Curt, which is to say, not at all. :-) Nice photo!

Fun route, first lead I ever did at T-Wall.

3 out of 5 stars Nice shot, but one point off for keeping the crag a secret! :-(

5 out of 5 stars This should be on the cover of a magazine! First photo I've given a 10.

4 out of 5 stars Wow . . . that really gives you an idea of the scale of the place. Next time I'll get to that pitch without getting rained out. Great shot!

2 out of 5 stars Groovy! :-)

3 out of 5 stars "It reminds me of the runouts at Stone Mountain in NC." Yeah, except Stone Mountain runout doesn't have holds and features! :-) Nice photo.

Climbing photos just don't get any better than this!

3 out of 5 stars One of my favorites too, though I'm not sure I'd call it a "warmup" . . .

4 out of 5 stars This is an outstanding shot! Though I can't help wondering why there's no gear hanging from her harness after cleaning the route. :-)

3 out of 5 stars Prerequisite is still one of my favorite leads at T-Wall.

4 out of 5 stars Very cool angle on this photo. I really enjoyed leading Passages, what a great route!

>>Quickdraws shouldn't be pointing straight left in a photo unless you're on the moon.
Haha, busted! Still a nice photo.

So many people have died trying to make this move . . . the horror . . . the horror.

Only if you want to get down afterwards! Doubles aren't technically necessary; you could climb on a single, but then you'd have to trail a second rope, and who needs that on a 7-pitch climb?

Pitch 3 . . . of what route?

You ain't never gonna get to Aintry . . . you done taken a wrong turn!

Nope, definitely not Medusa Tree. This is High Infidelity, way on down the trail. Great route, by the way.

Very cool! The colors of the rope and leaves just seem to pop out of the background.

Clausti -- the climber reminds me of you, though not as intense. :)

5 out of 5 stars Phenomenal photo (especially at full size); so vivid I can almost taste it!

4 out of 5 stars I wouldn't have thought it was possible to come up with a new view of this much-photographed line, but you've done it. The clouds really make the shot.
