Might I suggest dropping the size and pumping up the quality? Great shot though!

3 out of 5 stars Where is this boulder? Looks like a nice, warm place.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars I like the shot, maybe pump up the quality, make the size smaller?

3 out of 5 stars Is that move really necessary? Can't really tell from the pic, but as a laugh I like to throw lots of unnecessary heel hooks out there, thought it might be the same stylie. Great looking line though. Maybe I'd be able to send it with some more finger/core strength... anyways

If they're old school, the most definately hang on to them. I'm trying to find some ol' school high top climbing shoes... Problem is that my foot's a 47 or 13US.

3 out of 5 stars Good on you for heading back there...

3 out of 5 stars Nice burn

The chalk can also stop the rock from being polished... what's worse to you? polished rock or unsightly white stuff... get eco-balls if you want something other than chalk

4 out of 5 stars great shot, I love the colour of his shirt against the darkness of the background!

I acutally went higher, but Kurt was freaking out, took some pics and ran back to spot me in case I popped.

4 out of 5 stars like the perspective, you can see way down!

View this Photo
Grew up around farms, so knew to step between the plants. Watering the plants never hurt either ;)
However, you're right farmer doe probably wouldn't have appreciated it.

4 out of 5 stars the question I have is, did you manage the traverse without hooking your heel overtop the edge?

The lightning was miles away sandbag, the front missed us completely. No worries though, I keep my head up for stuff like that. Anywho, no I'm not wearing a helmet, that's my hat on backwards. If you don't believe me, check out my other photos of the tower.

Thanks for the encouragement!

1 out of 5 stars can't say I'm a fan of photoshopped images like this

Was on the arete due to crazy ass high wind. First couple of times I went up, it was next to the window slits. Fun, fingery ledge stuff, but when the wind blew, it was damn close to pulling me off there, so we hit up the arete.

View this Photo
nope, no stairs... hence no easy way down...

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars ditto

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars not on that day, am hoping to return on either a calmer day wind-wise or with rope/gear to rap off top. inside is hollow with no holds... drrock, cheers!

5 out of 5 stars Damn man, I love your work, and I gotta admit I agree with you about photoshop: when people accuse me of using it, and I don't make my entire living from photography, it stings!

4 out of 5 stars Damn... Curious as to how high up you are. And that's not a swami belt I'm taking it. Either way, you survived to make the post, and it's a mighty fine pic!

Also showing off the Euromullet! How young is that one? No, but on a serious note, another great shot!

5 out of 5 stars I haven't voted on a shot in a while, but this one deserved a 10! Great use of the fisheye.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars maybe it just me, but it looks like its outside (to all of those who said it was an indoor place) either way though, if there's a dirth of real rock there, then damn that looks like fun

1 out of 5 stars Hate to be a naysayer, but this photo looks weirdly photoshopped to me. My apologies if it's not

View this Photo
thanks for sharing this pic, I love to see some of the older shots. really have to trust the feet eh? And I don't see any pro possibilities in sight

For slab, a good tip is to drop your heels and use as much rubber on it as possible. here, your heels are slightly lifted. good job on the send

4 out of 5 stars Those are really close bolts, but perhaps for a good reason. That's a stiff looking route, a solid effort to say the least. I like the photo as well!

When did you climb this route? When I did it three weeks ago the waterfall was three times the size it said it was in the guidebook. I led three pitches through the waterfall. Miserable.

View this Photo
well, the pins and the gear were in the falls for three pitches when I did it, I was following the fixed gear, I was nice and wet and miserable. nice shot by the by

4 out of 5 stars the perspective makes me dizzy... looks like fun though!

Is he barefoot?

Totally, like a weird desert planet... cool looking though, eh?

View this Photo
since he's back in the fist jams, my guess is he's got a piece in that we can't see because it's blocked by his body.

You post a photo like that: you better expect the comments to roll in... anyways, nice tats.

4 out of 5 stars Photos might not do justice, but this one surely must come close.

what the hell is the poster trying to say? I love it either way.

hype -- Yes we all use it... but damn if my crag looked anything remotely like that I'd be pissed. Thanks for the recommendation to stay away from Hueco --> or maybe I'll just use rock coloured chalk, or clean my chalk marks after I'm done climbing.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars From what I remember - looks like Shockleys. To the photog - have you thought about cropping out your fixed line? Great shot otherwise!

Hi Nate, nice send. We did that line on a -15C day where there was no WAY we were touching the ice. Made it a little interesting with all the 'exploding' holds. By the end of the day, after 3 of us had done it a handful of times, there was barely a hold that had lasted all day.
