He isn't posing for the picture. He climbs and I just take pictures. I am more of a journalistic type of photographer.

The spotter will catch/direct the fall. The climber will barn door out to the right, not fall straight down during this move.

Yes the boulder is called 010101.

Hi cragman - I used a Nikon FM2 with a 24mm lens. Fuji 100F Provia film. Used Polaroid 35mm Sprint Scan film scanner. I need to do a better job correcting color in Photoshop.

Great Job !!! This route is on my tick list when the weather cools down. What pitch are you at/on.

It was early morning and the sun was just hitting the wall. We had just finished climbing Prodigal Sun the day before and bivied were I took the picture. Used Nikon FM2 with 24mm 2.8 lens and Fuji Provia F100 film. Hand held shot at f4 / 125 sec.

Maybe because I used a 24mm lens the purple #4 camalot looks bigger than it really is. But I did use it twice on pitch #10.

I had a top rope set up on the route to the right of this one. The route is very overhanging, so I was about 6' from the wall when I took this shot. I jugged up a static line to get into position, used a Nikon F3 with an 85mm lens.

4 out of 5 stars jono13 --- its not all about climbing --- Especially in Big Wall climbing. Its about logistics. Planning, organization, timing, getting the stuff to the base, fixing, CLIMBING and getting down. Its the total experience. Sorting your gear, making important decisions here, can make a big difference later on.

4 out of 5 stars When you clean a pitch done by PassThePitonPete be prepared to CLEAN A LOT OF PINS. My right arm was killing me after I cleaned all the pins off the 3rd pitch of Lunar Eclipse.

4 out of 5 stars Yes, memories ----- I remember rapping off after doing the Kor Roof to bivy on Dinner Ledge.
The wind was blowing hard, causing me to spin during the rappel, plus the exposure was GREAT.

High bigwalling: This modified hook works great in worn out bat hook holes on sand stone like P7 the "Amoeba Pitch" on Lunar Ecstasy.
