Which is it -- Digital Delight or Mescaline Daydream?
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 . . .
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!
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.
Nice shot, great colors! Where's your rope?
This is a great picture, excellent color and composition! You should submit this for the rockclimbing.com calendar.
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!
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.
Those trees must have seen a million slings over the years! And yes, it was cold on the Arch last weekend.
Fantastic! I hope to be there someday soon.
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."
I really like black and white photography, especially when it's done as well as this. Great contrast!
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!
Not to mention that you posted the picture in the wrong climbing area! Better luck next time.
Nice capture of an intense moment.
Nice shot, very pretty rock; too bad the picture isn't bigger.
Very cool photo, I like the composition and color saturation.
Amazing! Most unusual climbing photo I've seen in a while.
Hardcore! Great shot.
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!
Very nice shot, beautiful rock!
"some idiot rated this a five. moron." How do you know what individual ratings it got?? (Great shot, Gabe!)
Fantastic! Your timing (taking the picture) is great!
Nice concentration, Jay! Cool shot.
Cool shot, nice framing!
Pretty rock, makes me want to go there.
Very nice! I was just at the Gunks and I want to go back!
I remember it well, it was my second sport lead. Keep it up!
Cool shot, makes me dizzy!
Excellent shot! I love Sunset climbing.
Haha, you should audition for the Village People, Gabe! Just kidding, great intensity on what must have been a hard climb.
Very nice shot! Glad to know a climb that's not 5.11+ can make it to the front page. :-)
Beautiful, and great climbing!
Best photo ever posted on rc.com!
Fantastic! I'm looking forward to Groover, but not while it's a blast furnace, I'll wait til fall.
Nice shot! That looks like a great climb, can't wait to try it.
Nice rock to have in your backyard!
Hats off to Shannon, hardest of the hardcore!
Very cool, dynamic shot! The spectator far below makes a nice point of reference.
Looks like a sidewalk in somewhat the same way you (climbsomething) look like Curt, which is to say, not at all. :-) Nice photo!
Great shot! I love this climb.
I like this -- nice composition and color, great climber intensity.
Where is this? "Chattanooga" isn't a climbing area . . .
Very nice capture of a decisive climbing moment!
Fun route, first lead I ever did at T-Wall.
Nice! Makes me want to go back.
I actually like this the best of the three, more action and nice concentration in her expression. Cool shot!
Cool shot on beautiful rock!
Nice shot, but one point off for keeping the crag a secret! :-(
This should be on the cover of a magazine! First photo I've given a 10.
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!
"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!
One of my favorites too, though I'm not sure I'd call it a "warmup" . . .
This is an outstanding shot! Though I can't help wondering why there's no gear hanging from her harness after cleaning the route. :-)
Prerequisite is still one of my favorite leads at T-Wall.
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. :)
Phenomenal photo (especially at full size); so vivid I can almost taste it!
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.
