I wish I was this climber on this crack in Oz!
I love this one (the rock's shape and colors, the sky, the climber's move). Perfect!
Impressive, frightening, whatever you want!!!
Yes, it is MAGNIFIQUE!
Typically the kind of pic which gives you the desire to climb.
This shot definitely deserves a higher quality.
I didn't really worked on the depth of field, I focused on Patrick, and just placed the pine tree in the bqckground, but it could have been clear too!
Pretty overcrowded! Like Claret (F) or Some crags in Finale (I)...
Yeah a face witha big black eye looking at us! We say in France that Ceuse is the best cliff in the country. I really should go there...
A real ocean of rocks...
welcome on rc.com! Few guys from your area (none?).
another nice pic... Give me your photo abilities, please!
only 5.5? It seems little bit more difficult!
Do such cams really exist or is it just a fake one?
you must really need to climb to boulder in such an area!
this one is amazing, awesome , perfect. I love it!!! Email it to me as a screensaver!
Santa Claus? :)
watch your knee ligaments!
so that's a beanie for sure!
what a light!
another great wall. this orange and blue lines are awesome. Is your nickname coming from this kinda walls?
b-g, you're a hot rabbit! Cool down...
I didn't know there was some ice in Australia. I learn everyday.
It's not a crashpad! It might be a left part of this former stronghold. I had a hard painful day climbing there, maybe the worst of my life!
nice one again.
the waves on the rock are beautiful.
that's climbing is all about : fun and landscape! I'm jealous...
congrats for opening this route with one of the european masters of snow and ice!
nice winter colors, and the snow is wiating for the climber up there!
so fall is really that beautiful in your country...
that's what I love in winter : every palces look just so new and different!
what %@#$ing softwear do U use to add the colors!? :)
same first feeling, tim!
Did I dream that I already told you it was definitely Blaitière or did I already told you??? I'm losing memory...
great move! Hey, Jörg, put the french grade please! ;) :)
I definitely like this monk hairstyle!
ringin' the bells!
does he climb with the Little Red Book? ;)
you should have used a flash so the hands and holds would have been seen. :)
what kind of rock is it?
simple but nice
great boulder shot!
nice "lolotte" Jörg... watch your ligaments!
nice fall colors... and Sarah's hair are of the same color...
self-timer is a great photographer!
what a field-depth (again!). And fine foot placement technique.
I appreciate the <b>foot position</b>, with the heel lower than the toes. great for an ice beginner, I can't even imagine doing this when I started...
is it really an ancient volcano?!
beautiful picture anyway!
this makes me remember that I had my most difficult treks in these %@#$ing Pyrénées... so steep, so warm in summer time...
I love this one! Warm rock color creates a great contrast with the snowy ground and trees. Where are the holds?
sea lion for me!
ice climbing or dry tooling...?
nice pic, a little bit colorless anyway.
strange shadow, as if the light was coming from under the climber!
you climb too!? ;)
... and I still use these tights... :)
what a beautiful rock color! It looks like cream.
are you a chameleon?
nice to see some lichens! Sometimes, rock climbing just looks like having fun in the nature.
pretty close! :)
Don't drop! You might have hated your first experience, but be sure mountaineering is great, even at a low level like I do practice. Mountaineering is a great hobby! Nice camp.
what are all the white "things" on the ground? Trash?
Nice one again, Jörg. You should add the specific crag in your comment for us Europeans (or at least for me!). I really need to go back to Fränkische...
blue+yellow+red... vertical and horizontal...light and shade... everything is in it.
you must leave the rock (Magic Rules) ;)
wow, 2 pairs of ski! :)
did U use a filter? Red or yellow? Or no filter? Beautifil pic, impressive sky!
Kronthal is THE place to go climb hardcore when you live northeast of France.
is he hanging on the draw? :)
where is the snake???
with such an arm I would grab anything! :)
what a light!!!
and now I know why it's better to be on your side than against you!
No comment left
it's a quarry
he's got a huge spider on his head...
I wouldn't have disposed a camera taking so nice pictures! :) :) :)
now, that's a nice sunset shot! It changes from the usual ones.
yeah, Poles take too much steroidsand other stimulants! :)
but Italy is better! Well, I don't know Spain!!! This place seems perfect to go climbing.
great pic joe!
I guess the staircase is not plain?!
nice butts... and nice rock ;)
balls itching eh? :)
I broke my neck by looking at this picture!
I wouldn't like to fall while leading this route...
porcupines eat tire gum??? Anyway, in Frankenjura, Germany, you have to watch your car's engine after climbing 'cause weasels chew wires... (weasels chew wires???).
Orange t-shirts should be definitively forbidden! Are you a <b>dutch soccer fan</b>??? ;) And I know why you didn't show the right hand : Urs is holding a quickdraw... :) Great pic, the shadow (setting or rising sun?) is nice too. Blurry? Maybe the lower body of the climber? I'm a fan.And a 79K picture of this quality, we want more!
they still print this kinda T-shirt!!!
^I think so
but he's gonna burn his balls...
and the climber looks like he's escaping the shadow! great!
stop posting good photos or I hijack your e-mail!
it would have been even better with 2 or 3 "half naked women" on the boulder. No? No.
this rock looks really strange!
"Blanches Fesses (et les 7 mains)" is a french joke for "Blanche Neige (et les 7 nains)" but means "White Butt and the 7 hands" not "Snow White and the 7 dwarfs". THis was for a short cultural moment on rc.com! I suppose there are some similar jokes in english... anyone?
where is the 100-pointer?
in French, we call them "steaks". And in English?
what is the story?
nice limestone, ain't it? How was the anchor up there?
Isn't it "provocative" to climb with short pants and shirts in Iraq?
incredible rock! I would climb there everyday if I could afford it...
yes, great pockets eberywhere, you just have to take the largest one. Then I wonder why I didn't find any for my left foot... I always have problems with my feet!
what a back!
climbing family? good!
and why not an octopus foot???
yes, I wanted the sky to appear as blue as it was the day I took the shot, not the way it looked after I scanned the pic...so I over"photoshoped" this pic.
more bone than muscles, hehe!
no, he's climbing with a wide sock on his head...
how is it possible to do such special effect?
Volx was so trendy in the 80s... notb anymore!
it's a wall for the people to climb it...;)
you stole me this pic, matthias! hehe ;) I'm waiting for pics of me taken on l'Aguglia di Goloritze by some german friends. We climbed a mix of Sole incantatore and Dolce Stil Novo, mainly because our leader Günther didn't climb the exact route... it was a little bit difficult for me as it was my first multipitch route... great experience anyway.
yep... whale hunting shouldn't be restricted...
poor ankle! aïe!
I can see the acarians running on it...
eheheh! And that's a hot chick who says it!
We were really fortunate to have an excellent weather during the whole trip but one single day of rain in Isili. The sea is much better when the sun is out ;)
I see the hearse was already parked in the garden... ;)
you mean it's PTPP? No rasor on the ledge???
"one grossly overequipped team"... really? :)
so wil was spanking geo?
if I was a girl, I would jump on you... but I'm a guy.
Jim Carey belaying in urban shoes?
is JP JP Banville?
isn't this set of pics a little underexposed? Is it my computer's screen? They all appear very dark, more than your usual pictures...
very strange atmosphere!
almost scarry! No life, everything seems to rest for ever...
it looks strange again...
you have way too much muscles ;)
Jörg, did you decide to trust the first page again? ;)
the more I see this pic, the more I like it. It's nice and simple.
impressive muscles for a teenager!
cotton did that?!
Tübingen? Do U know Jörg?
Le cul du chien...is not the bItch's butt ;)
I like it too! And the quality is excellent!
get rid of the German Connection!!! Excellent picture! Hey mopps, what camera and scan do you use to get so bright pics on this site?
who is the moron who rated this pic a 1??? You may not like the subject, but the image is bright and sharp, the colours are soft and realistic, the pose is absolutely natural, and what more common than someone removing its stincky and sticky shoes after a climb... so why a 1???
much better than the other one.
sometimes I know why i like sigle pitch sport routes : SIMPLICITY!
cold and rainy inside? :)
it looks like Bleau!
the silhouette of the opening is fascinating.
on the left, kareem abdul jabar hooking the ball into the basket on the right.. or a guy sending a piece of meat to a poodle...
holy beaf! - crap. No! thomas...
this pic might not be very good, but to rate it a 2 isn't very nice...
he looks like a bat...
what season for you was it taken? Winter? Or is there some snow at this altitude all day long?
where's your "I" cap? ;)
dynos were killed by meteorites, no?
is her sleeping bag already on a portaledge?
firn, how was the normal route? Do you really need nuts and cams? I often look at that face when I go skiing to Leysin or Villars... I should do it once before I pass.
it looks like a troll, a big bad one like in the Lords of the Rings
is the tent on a platform??
good attempt, boys.
wow!!! glad to climb in France...
I don't think the shadow is disturbing, it's even perfect to make the climber "emerging", otherwise a tan skin on a brown rock wouldn't appear very well. I was ready to say that the tree is giving some "humanity" to this shot, but i think it's not the most appropriate word! 10. And I hadn't rated a 10 on one on your pics for a long time, Jörg.
difficult shooting conditions, with lot of light and shades, but good result IMO.
don't laugh at your friends! Well, do it!
and so little chalk on the rock, it has to be noticed.
both beautiful and frightening
a pity that the climber is not still in the sun! Otherwise nice atmosphere.
I would ask : is nicki and bene from the same family?
ahah! My first outdoor climbing this year was in February too, but in the French Jura, not the Frankenjura!!! Best end of winter and best spring ever in western Europe, I suppose.
maybe you should plan a rc.com gathering in Turkey for 2005 or 2006...Climbing, hiking, mountaineering...
S. Tyler from Aerosmith???
a little bit too much sky, maybe? Good shoot after all.
That's another world for me...
How funny! In fact, this pine tree is just 3 m high and is in the immediate foreground. :)
the original pic seems pretty good, but the online version is blurry (or pixelated???)
we should do that in some of our crags too. Sometimes the belayer is less comfortable than the climber...
it's liek a ballett. I like this one.
<b>doing the gaston</b>, what does it mean?
I don't find it blue ;)
I need the English names of course! :)
In fact, for the first 3 ones, the most important part for the climber (not for the driller!) is what you call the <b>hanger</b>, right?
hot and skilled...is that possible? We're gonna find a crack in your personality ;)
what! climbnow1 heading to Australia? It means more nice shots of this country!!!
hey, edge, you wor the real knickerbrockers!!! Alpinism of an ancient era?
resize it!!! so big and blurry!
panorama contest on rc.com???
with your own shadow at the top? :)
did you steal these pants to the Dead???
are you really smoking while climbing??? no joke???
cleaners deserve awards!
is Eiffel Tal limestone?
rad rock. Is it a limestone block?
hey, I saw some of your pics on climbing.de, nice ones too!
try to get the mess out of the frame when you shoot! Nice pic otherwise...
That's very long! Is that dangerous or not?
Clean that face! No, kidding...
wow! So aesthetic!!!
amazing rock!!! Basalt, ain't it?
yep, pretty good!
too bad the climber looks like a chameleo ;) Warm colors and nice rock.
This rock is marvelous! Looks like some routes in Fontvieille, near Aix-en-Provence, France.
I think the balance is nice to see ; the rope cutting the climber in 2 is more annoying I would say! Nice environment though.
some are more serious than others...
she holds microgrips!
natural relaxing state of the abdominal musculature...
and nice pic!
I would let the same height and width, but increase the dpi of the scan, so we don'thave to scroll down to view the whole pic. Or I will have to buy a new computer!!!
blue circuit #32, if you tell me the area I could maybe find the name.
all this gear on the harness and nothing on the rock!
I hate happy climbers...
Hopefully, the driver didn't leave with the camera...
could you once post a $#!&ty picture?
I was despearatly looking for a naked nymph bathing in the fall, but nope! nothing!
original picture! I like it.
especially this year, because the heat opened the crevasses so much!
It's telepherique, not telegraphique! I don't know what telegraphique could mean, but it's a nice word anyway...maybe it would be the capacity to write something from afar.
There's the route called <b>Digital Crack</b>, 8a/ABO, 35 m high, just under the Cosmic Hut. It was opened from top in 1989.
The face is completely covered by fresh snow! When was it???
her stretchiness is very impressive!
how can you have such a light in the background and not have an underxposed route and climber??? That's my main problem while taking climbing pictures!
who is Everest?
and hairy legs!!!
at least a good slacklining picture!
it's like the sea and big waves are just missing, no?
"here" means "the institute" or "the wall"?
:) :) :)!
maybe a too big black part in the bottom of the pic, but the upper part shows both nice symmetry and colours.
nice one too
Annot and Verdon are really NOT in the same area... I should fix that for you if you don't want to do it...
it would hyper hype to take a flight from Paris to NYC just to boulder in Central Park! I should consider it the day I'm rich and have free time!!!
one or two years ago, there was an article in a french mag on finnish boulders. But I didn't know there was some cliffs there. I believed it was a prett flat country... ah! clichés!!!
now I see why it's called Mickey Mouse!
wow, your doughter really holds small grips!
! I like the composition (and the action too).
hey, redpiton, you have as much body fat as I have!
nice TR picture : simple move, but concentrated climber, nice colours, peaceful scene.
that's a a small one...;)
simple shot and beautiful result!
I like the mix of despair and vacuum in the eyes, plus the relaxed but apparently exhausted body. And the rock seems so huge, just anihilating the climber! Nice atmosphere.
in what season?
this kind of comments sound familiar... :)
so go get it back! ;)
^right! I didn't notice that! :)
the tree is going high on the problem too!
i like the stripes on both the pullover and the rock
sometimes my butt seems so useless to me too!
my body is much more impressive... in another way...
I liked the former one better.
the rock formation down is nice looking!
but are you proud?
awesome shot, peaceful atmosphere.
ah! great shoes!!!
it's not typically the kind of pic I like, but this one is special, you're like a lizard on this rock, but there's still a long way to go...
a bit blurry, but nice colorful action pic
pixel problem, otherwise nice shot.
nice move, but the pic is unfortunately a bit blurry..
a pity we don't see the right foot. Otherwise good butt pic.
!!! climbing light, eh!?
it looks like a fortress, doesn't it?
it would be perfect if the face was visible
this is some limestone in a karstic formation isn't it
i love this composition!
is that the belay or is it a strange quickdraw?
what a slab!
this crack is beautiful
bad rope position... but great move!
better go to the gym ;)
maybe too much sky?
nice but dry scenery, no?
nice shot, very unusual to see boulder problems from a so long distance!
i like those simple but nice pics
too bad we don't see the face!
excellent foot positioning for a good friction
i don't want to imagine the fall....
i think the colours are to saturated and the image a bit sharpened... it gives an artificial look to it...
i can hear the mosquitoes coming from the ponds...
:) is it from a new trip after your exams this year, or from a previous year? And congrats to your brother!
so next year : sardinia? frankenjura? finale? villanova? usa? I can't choose, i can't choose! :(
i will soon like slacklining if you go on posting such nice pics
congrats for the wedding erica!
you've got leaves stuck on your ass... what did you do with'em?
the horizon is falling down!
these trad climbers are complicated... climb sport!
colourful scenery! one day I'll make it to Rumney.
it is! in fact the climber is grasmping a soldier's butt
original butt shot without butt!
make me want to be at the parking-lot!
the pic is a bit overexposed but I like it.
or buy more light now that your wall is full of holds!
very simple and natural picture, I like it a lot!
i just imagine a candid child pulling down the rope "hey, mom, look what I got while pulling this rope..." A dead soloist... :) :(
sexual shape, no?
hey, spotter, put this cap off!, says the photographer ;)
pretty pic, arret'
not that bad!
it seems so remote
in fact, I'm not sure he's belaying anyone! Just pulling a rope for an unknown reason... look, the rope doesn't seem to go the harness... maybe he's pulling the rope to make a <b>slackline</b>!
he's still breathing! pull harder!
so we can find you in Sugar Loaf Mountain? ;)
funny perspective! and I like the flowers on the cliff.
it's not fair that you submit pics the same day that I do... :( Great great one again. AND ONLY 72kb! But you should clean your scanner or watch the slide because there's some "parasites" on this pic.
hep! click! :)
the wailing wall
we can't really imagine the scale. Is it just the summital pyramid or is it the whole face?
did you sAnd it?
very nice ice picture! motion+emotion+perspective, all nice!
excellent right foot friction. I already hear people here saying "what! a crack line bolted!!!". And this clipping seems exposed if you fall!
^that's what makes its trueness even more enjoyable!
i've already seen that somewhere...
Back in 1989 I went to Zion during a post college trip with my parents, and we were stuck in the most violent storm I ever experienced. The sounds were echoing everywhere in the canyon, we just could see lightnings but nothing else because of the night and the clouds and the rain, the power was shot down in the hostel... Excellent souvenir!
what <b> kind of rock </b> is it??? Really awesome cliff!
nice shot though the sky is washed out. But the composition is good and the boulder problem interesting.
yep! the arms really look long!!!
walkig up? courageous!
tell it now, it's not true!?
why did you put your belt around your head?
I think it's due to the perspective, partially. great butt shot!
TR butt shot! But definitely excellent!
why can't I rate it 11?
it's a bit overexposed, I should work on that.
I love the colours of this picture!
Those cracks are so far from our European habits, but the more I see them the more I want to climb them... Maybe one day...
this rock is photoshoped! ;)
why is he so red???
This ovaries has some balls...
looks like a warm summer day...
what a nurse! I don't want to be sick...
so you're 2.5m tall!
kalcario, you're purely evil! Do you really want us to cry?
what is this car license plate?? WOnderful cliff BTW! Are there easier routes to warm up for guys like me, in the 6a-6b range?
always listen to your mom!
ice bouldering!? That's brand new or am i a tard?
I would put some light down, it's overexposed compared with the other photograph you submited. Nice anyway.
breathtaking! Just great!
Didn't your mom tell you to lace your shoes correctly? ;)
a 4 pitch traverse... I would die rather than climb that! But the view is gorgeous.
This is the best sunset seen in a while. I really LOVE it! Luck and light are the photographer best friends!
And could someone tell me why I have this white spot on many of my pictures??? I used different lenses, at different times, and I clean them often! Could it be something in the camera, on the mirror?
^yep, that's the problem with this cliff!
I believd you were kissing Dark Vador.
the pic should be smaller in inches and higher in resolution it deserves a better quality. Great perspective and colours and great move.
wonderful one! Everything is in the red slab at the bottom! Great!
levitation, i tell you!
Warning from the Surgeon General : smoking leads to baldness.
would be perfect with feet on the pic. Good anyway.
a beanie in summer? well, why not!
the composition of this photo is very interesting.
can we comment on the pants?
but his fleece is full of crap... ;)
nb : <i>beyond the azur of dreams</i> is the translated name of the route <i>Par delà l'azur des rêves</i>...
wow, great limestone! Seems sharp!!!
poor elephant, you're pulling where its tusk was extracted...
we don't really see anything on this picture (for a non aider like me), but the result is nice both in the structure and in the grey tones. Well, I like it.
+ the moon...
this one should be larger.
it looks like a continuous pumpy 5.9! Sandbagged?
^my joints already hurt!
Picture of the week!
you've got balls, phil! I can see the sharks cruising beneath you! ;)
so here is the great photographer. Nice to meet you.
quiet picture with warm colours. I like it.
hello Jörg! Nice to see you ;)
great move, fantastic overhang, bright colours, attentive spotter! Just a pixel problem, but excellent picture anyway!
it's a pity that we don't see the route and the climber better, they are underexposed and the climber is in the same colours than the rock... but we can still appreciate the incredible structure of the rock and the steepness of the route.
not that bad for 7k!
I love your comments guys! All this variety in the language! And thanks, I always jnew I should have been a graphic designer... ;)
OK, this sunset is nice, because the black silhouette is not black, because there are different parts well organised on this photo. Nice one. I too miss the sunsets over the Puget Sound towards the Olympics and the ocean ... :(
it took me some seconds to find the climber!
really nice one. Not one of those sunsets...
great pocketed limestone!
You make me remember the rasta biker in <i>Thelma and Louise</i>...
the cliffs are not higher than 55/60 meters but the longest routes are 45/50 m and the usual ones between 25 and 35m.
go see my wonderful description of the whole site! ;) Sport climbing on a cracked limestone, many layouts, some crimpers and pinches, few good holds (eh! I learned the words some taught me!!!).
too much tilted on the right...
I like the shadow on your face and the focus in your eyes.
the orange clothes add a lot to this pic.
this one is overexposes, and it would have better with the climber not centered. I would have put more trees and less cliff.
spotters required here!
couple of friends or couple of clones? ;) :)
wonderful shot. And the environment is gorgeous!
seems more than 35yrs old!
I love this pic. And the bottle is funny.
the shadowed rock must have been cold! The pic is a little bit overexposed on my screen.
a pity there's the photographer's (bumblie's?) shadow on the pic. But the view down to the valleys is impressive!
is that a member from Village People climbing this route? :)
the climber is so bright, like a star!
yes, the image is quite strange. It's very grainy, but the violent contrast is not a photoshop trick. The pic just gets like that. maybe it's the T-Max400 in the heavy light. BTW, I just bought a red filter this month, I'm gonna try it soon.
[quote]if the climber pops off doing the heel-hook/reach for the top edge of the book, it's a nasty "ground"-fall[/quote]no, i see a ring between 2 books, he's gonna clip it.
Hale Bopp is a boulder located in <i>Franchard Cuisinière</i>. This dyno was opened by F. Nicole in 1997. It's usually rated 7c, but this dyno depends so much on the size of the climber that the rating goes from F7a to F8a. The sit start opened made by Klem Loskot in 1998 is F8a+.
the pic is great... but I should buy a much larger screen to see it without scrolling! ;) Excellent submission, makes me want to go mountaineering as soon as possible!
now you all understand why the bivouacs are all closed but one... Respect the places, the forest is fragile...
editing, editing... I'm sure you edited the color ofyour shirt... ;) So, how high were you?
My technique to solve this problem (#9 White of the 95.2) easily : right hand grabs the diagonal hold just 3 inches over his right hand ; lock your arm strongly ; with left hand, grab the sloper above the large flake, 10-15 inches above Florents' left hand and don't waste your energy taking the flake he's on! Move your right foot approx where his right hand is and your left foot approx where his left hand is. Then last sloper for the right hand is in the most overexposed part of the pic at the top of the problem. Yell "yes!" and go down. Look for another problem on the circuit or on another one!
climbing in the jungle... Isn't it too wet? NB : is the climber trailing an additional rope?
with the snowshoes? That's circus!
a little bit too contrasted and saturated, no?
whynot "lovely peak"... :)
no idea of the scale. How high is it?
nice pic of the Cervin/Cervinio/Matterhorn
is the pad at its right place?
have you lost your head?
I'm that way too, making things more complicated!
and BTW, 5b in Bleau is only V0.
this photo shows the pure essence of sport climbing.
and 1st butt-shot of the season :)
it's forbidden because the basis is cracked, making it fragile. So if the future generations want to see it standing, we shouldn't climb on it. But it's not advertised, so a lot of people still climb it (including me, before I knew it).
edge, you made your biggest mistake ever by wearing those pants in France! Now, I understand...
do you remember what number and circuit it was?
you stand on nothing!
wasn'it a bit wet at Bas Cuvier?
just a question apart : who made the upper part of the wall??? not an Italian bricklayer!!! I've never seen so many concrete between bricks!
... but it's gonna make good underclings for the lizard.
^at least the protections don't impair the rock at each climb. A definitive bolt, and here it is...
this is purely disgusting... have you no thought for the people under the snow?
^yes, the climber is lost in an ocean of rock, and I don't think that the transgression of the rule of third is a problem here.
mountain should also be taken on the easy way some days. Cool pic.
Butt shot! But nice one.
bouldering, or treying to boulder! :)
this is a nice pic, but maybe if the climber had been just (i say just) a little bit more in focus and more to the right, it would have been perfect. But once again, nice picture.
too bad the pic is that small.
what happens if you fall?
hopefuly you have duct tape! ;)
yes, too bad the colors fade away!
so you just have to put sand on her, and the grave is ready!
marvelous! the wind creates great structures.
should be higher quality.
was it THAT red?
I first belived it was a stone!
ah ah! :)
extraordinary light on this picture
and did you manage to catch some jays?
nice new year's day climb!
^it took me 3 times, but I'm French! Original text for sure! :)
i can't see no red ;)
maybe it's because i drank just ONE beer, or maybe it's a side-effect of your diagram, but I'm laughing and laughing!
I don't agree. The tree is at its right place, hiding an overlit and not so inetresting background.
how big is that pad???
a pity her face is blurry... mr, you lazy writer!!!
crashpad made out of panther fur? I guess it's forbidden...
too many disturbing things in that pic : the date and time, the trashcans, the missing sea, the fact that we don't see your feet. It could have been a very nice one, as the colours and the landscape are attractive.
it's a pity that just the climber's head is in the shade. Otherwise, still a good shot (we expect that from you!) with a very interesting range of tobacco and chocolate and ochre.
if it wasn't Graham, i would say "useless move, stop showing up!". here I can just say "what a stretch!".
you mean there was no climber and no crag and you add them to a blank image?! Nice result anyway.
strange looking turquoise wall!
20 ft or 10 ft?...
nice geometry in this pic, revealed by the use of B&W.
good use of the depth of field. And interesting light.
The facial expression seems fake to me, and the abdominal contraction seems useless in that move as the body is so far from the overhang and the right high appears relaxed. The members extremities are indeed lacking on this shot.
A wider frame would have been better, with more rock. It's slightly overexposed but not that important.
well, I like it better. More natural. Nice brown colours.
ahah, I imagined you with long hairs and lot of hairs (if what I say makes sense to you!)...
[quote]Squint really hard and you can see them.[/quote] I'm now suspicious when I read this... I'm always expecting some devil suddenly appearing on the my screen and cry very hard... That must be the "community syndrome"... Nice picture.
what a pity the resolution is not better. Good composition.
the initial picture must be very nice too.
It looks so steep on this pic (very nice anyway!).
it almost looks like a painting!
the breaking wave gives a nice touch and fills the right part of the pic, too. it's a plus.
the rock is wonderful.
it would be very good with if the climber was not centered, IMO.
great light and colours
you have a real eye, the_alpine! (I don't know your name).
this pic has something of a "stolen moment". I like it.
no grip = slab, sensu stricto ; small grips = slab, sensu largo.
too much mess on the ground and a bit overexposed, but nice perspective and nice composition.
There's something I like in this pic : the parallelism of the fall, the body, and the rope, + the overall brown color. And the shady ground balances the whole.
the crosses don't serve this pic!
^ yep, it's a 62 mm diameter, and the Jo was on the ledge we see, ie 1 meter or so above!
I love your urban pics, popol.
Many tbings are nice here : the composition of the pic, with the hand and arm giving some energy to the pic, the 2 arms amusingly responding to the loop of the rope, the light tone of the climber surrounded by darker elements, the stripes of the draws echoing with the trees in the background... You made of a non so interesting top rope subject a nice picture. After yrs of experience, I can say it's not that easy! Keep on taking pics!
maybe you should crop the borders and reduce the overall light. Nice composition.
The Gorges du LoUp are around Nice on the Côte d'Azur, very far from the Gorges du Tarn!? Or is there an area called Gorges du Loup in the Gorges du Tarn???
Could you check that?
happiness is communicative.
nice pic, but really nothing to do with rc.
that's a strange pic. The overpushed colours, the sculptured rock, your theatral position on the boulders, your beanie... It makes you look like a kind of divinity of an antique belief. Well, I like it.
It would have been great if the climber's face was visible and the pic less pixelised. Nice shot anyway.
too bad we can't see the left foot
what theboss said
a sect adoring a new icon?
would deserve to be more contrasted IMO.
with less deph of field and a higher contrast between the pants and the rock, it would have been very nice.
does the word "overchalked" exist?
what kinda comment? ABout the adidas pants? ;)
should he have written "seeing the route for the first time" so you don't play with words? Let's call it a following onsight and über alles let's say BRAVO!
there are plenty of pics of ths problem on the site. Check out for them.
yes, it would be very nice without the date.
hopefully uncle kalcario is watching! ;) hey, joe, you know everything about Spain, true?
it such a pity (and not a pita!) that the climber is in the shade. Otherwise, that's another place to go climbing and swimming and enjoy a millenar culture. next time maybe?
would be better with less light and maybe a better digital/scan definition. Nice anyway.
the N face (or it looks like a N face) seems terrible : crusty snow plaques, old avalanches... The last guy seems exhausted as climbingpride mentionned it... or is it a dog?!
please don't touch the trees if you resubmit the pic : they are incredible!
I would like it more contrasted, I think.
so old looking, but nice anyway.
disco hairs and glasses ?!
eheh! :) I like when people have fun!
you look frightening!!! :)
I would say overexposed and not enough contrasted too. Nice move.
I don't see any holds ;)
beautiful shot (composition, colours, climber position)
the shady part is maybe too important.
ahah! I love those discussions! The sit start makes it tougher, but the crux seems way upper than the sitstart! So, is it a V3 because of the photographed crux or because of the sit start? ;)
nice right foot.
wow nice crag!
sunburn on the foot?
I first believed it was the head of a dead body stuck in the mud!
too bad it's so small!
and solo picture too? :)
the hand grip is great!
I never tried to put a cactus in my chalk bag. ;)
what trees are these?
category big wall?
yes, great move! An "alpine classic"
Portugal can be that high!!! I never imagined, and didn't know! Shame on me...
great you had your dad climb!
no better place to rest than the road!?
not much to get on?
too bad you guys are in the dark, otherwise it would be a good picture.
there's a wonderful symmetry in this picture, and a nice dialog between the colors on one side and the greys on the other side.
and then it breaks away...
w/o the shadow, it would be difficult to guess the move.
is that wood, concrete, or something else?
fantastic sky! Would deserve to be bigger and in higher resolution, though.
it would have been better if the person's face was more lit ; anyway, good pic in difficult conditions.
^ good comment!
what the hell are you doing???
the composition of this pic is great. I like the curved road too. Just overexposed on my screen.
eh! my arm must not be really bigger than 62 mm!
too bad??? This wall is full of bushes, so the photos should have some of them on!
a bit too much water? Very nice anyway, indeed.
I like it. May I say that Rainier is a bit overexposed, though?
I find this one a bit too sharp, Jörg. Good anyhow, of course.
Is that this famous where the Huber (or were they the Bindhammer?) opened the routes you mentionned?
nice boulder, nice move, nice comp. Mathieu, are U related to Jean-mi Asselin, from Vertical?
I hate the frame. But the face is amazing.
The Pope's hand is always shaking. ;)
Vey peaceful shot. But what kinda motocross helmet do you wear???
you should see a dentist ;)
I tend to consider that the contrast is a bit exagerated while the climber himself is underexposed. But the overall result is good.
the sky is really too washed out, otherwise it would be excellent.
the red dot must be very tiny... or someone stole your car!
looks fine to me,too.
it's wonderful : the place, the colours, the sky, the dynamic composition of the pic, the parallelism of the road and the mesa. Great!
and what is the Death doing with its scythe??? Is that a Dürer drawing???
so u're bouldering too!
Zion... the worst storm I ever experienced. With the noise echoing from everywhere...
looks a little bit like Haley Bopp in Fontainebleau.
do you find the Beal crashpads in Australia, or were some of the climbers European?
I see a defect on the biner ;)
the face is a bit blurry and the back skin a bit overexposed, but the photo is good overall.
so small a pic, too bad.
the black corners are very disturbing. Remaining is very good.
argh, violet and red! Do you want to get me blind! :)
he looks like a carpenter looking at a piece of wood!
the climber seems a bit out of focus, or maybe it's the compression, but this pic is great. This is exactly what I like in climbing : the nature which gives us the best f itself.
there's something I don't like in the overall colour of this shot. Too blueish, maybe? otehrwise very good.
how is this beer, mac'?
this shot has something scarry : the still "black" water, the snow, the clouds...
if only the climber had more colourful clothes!
I'm not really convinced by the BW for this landscape shot, it gives it an overall low contrast, especially on the forested hills. The clouds are impressive and the foreground on the right are nice though.
it could be an orthodox icon!
it's <b>La Fosse aux Ours</b>, 7a Font. There's a nice 5a right of it.
the exact name seems to be <b>Jeux de Toit</b> (7a, variante 7b). Great move!
This problem is called <b>La Cave Nicolas / Ultimatum</b>. It was opened by Philippe Le Denmat and Eric Letot and is a 7a (6c+ for some). It's 15 meters left of the red 15. This is what I found on http://bleau.info/bizons...
<b>Egoïste</b> sit-start, is F7a+ (classical start is 6c+.
I would like to add that the boulders are wonderful.
No, it's way to difficult for me. I couldn't even do this 5c, because I'm an ass at placing feet, and the crimps were a little bit small to hang on them! If I'm right, the crack on the left is hard and exposed, it's a 7a+ (V6).
hell! a raod biker in a crack!
it's not a butt shot! I've voted for hundreds of butt-shots here, and this one is definitely not one, even if the photographer is not over the climber. the rock is great, the move interesting, the climber very pretty. But there's just one annoying thing : the red rope in the upper right corner. Otherwise, good shot!
more contrast and less light
great shot! Goes very well with the new site tones by the way.
what if he falls now? Shouldn't the belayer spot him until the first clipping?
you are almost a bit lost among all this colourful boulders. But the dynamic move, the tree, and the quality pictures are good.
Do you know the French gov has jailed ppl for less! ;)
very simple but very good.
I think it lacks an interesting rocky feature tahat would be a bit highlighted, though : all the landscape is very dark, and there's not really something to look at on this pic. WHich is good, I have to say it!
the flowers just look a bit tired...
what long legs!!!
phil, was the chalk useful?
unusual comp! I like it!
of course, the architecture of the rock ads a lot to this pic. Otherwise, the colours are a bit washed out.
the stripes of the rock, the stripes of the shirt, the gear... I like all these diferretn features echoing.
some light reducing would be welcome. great shot and nice route though.
good but a bit blury too.
I don't like it very much...
climber in the mist. makes me want to scream and fight! ;) Nice shot!
the photographer's position is interesting too : it shows how we photo-addicts can fight to find a "resting" position to take pics of our friends while usually noone takes pictures of us... sigh...
hmmm, climbing a chocolate cake!
the quality of the image is excellent, but I think you were a bit too close from the subject.
simple shot with excellent light. Love it.
impressive! Could I ever try this kind of climbs?
from top, you look like Patrick Berhaut (the famous French climber/alpinist recently died). Maybe the haircut and the jeans.
you should have edited the title on the pic, which, pronounced in French, means "dirty fat girl"...
it's not my favorite, maybe because the climber could either dble dyno... or fall.
ah, ladies... shirt and shoes of the same color... ;)
the shade of the hammer is excellent! Bu it's a butt shot... ;)
I usually bomb dogs pictures, but this one is excellent. Just don't know why it's medium and not low... maybe because it's an excellent pic.
the crashpad looks like a big lizard...
SUVs, SUVs, SUVs... but nice pic!
nice colors You mean "nice sunburn"? eheh!
fantastic french limestone!
I'm sure I already saw this buildering 2 or 3yrs ago on this site.
rimayes and corniches... brrrrrrrrr!
french limestone... I miss it! No more hurting monzogranite!!! ;)
I simply love it, phil!
is it the cave also known as the Planet of the Apes?
It looks that much like a Jörg's photograph! The road, the sportclimb, the colourful climber... but with a US road (yellow line) and no limestone! Good pic.
the colours are very warm ; they make this pic cosy.
you're becoming a great climbing photographer, Phil.
still a classic!
I loved the overhanging cobblestone of Maple Canyon, appreciated Smith Rock though the high exposure, loved Red Rock and its gentle sandstone, loved the Buttermilks for the surrounding and the friction, scared myself following in JTree, my first crack climbing ever...
It looks like it's photographed through a glass... It remains just good, though it could be excellent.
I love it!
or with less light.
Great colors and composition.
but the climber is too dark and the sky washed out, unfortunately.
Wonderful pic. I love the smooth colors and all these parallel lines.
Too bad that the head is cropped.
It's not worth a 2, but it's a butt shot, we hardly see the climber, and the rope is distracting.
the background (high mountains + sky) is just a bit disappointing compared with the foreground.
A bit too contrasted, but more interestig than the other one(s).
WOuld be better withe the feet in the frame, and less red saturation. Great climbing move, with the climber shaking his arms to "remove" lactic acid.
how funny the sun ring is just circling the avalanche!
isn't it polished after years and years of tries by everyone?
the draw seems so huge! It's a bit disturbing according to me.
I don't like the way the bottom draws looks... Hopefully 2 more were clipped.
great web site!
The pic is good, but a little cropping of the most left part of the rock wouldn't be bad IMO.
it's a pity that we don't see the climber better, otherwise it would be a great shot. Maybe you could crop a bit of sky + morain, then enlarge the picture?
too bad the whole hand is not photographed!
So purists will tell you it's not an OS. And some people will say "who cares?". I will just say that it's a pity you're grabbing the rope.
ahah! Funny comments! Being pumped is a consequence of an excess of lactic acid, a byproduct of lactic anaerobic metabolism ; while a bouldering problem like this only requires the use of ATP (alactic anaerobic met.), unless you didn't rest enough between tries as mentionned lvclimbingbum. OK, I've too much time in my hands, sorry for the lesson... ;) The pic isn't bad though it would have been better with the subject not centered.
Good result despite apparent bad light conditions.
^you're lucky, I accidentally voted it a 10... :)
rule of third applied, the 3 primary colors, nice resting position, cloud of chalk, great shadows... but there's something artificial in it, I couldn't tell what... Only 9!
why not focus the camera on the subject?
ain't the shoe to tight???
better weather than what I had in early June!
relax, dude, everything's gonna be OK. But if you're playing in the Blair Witch project...
a pity that the quality is not better
and I'm the Pope! :)
strange looking rock
did you fall in love with this anchor or what???
what a position to screw something!
is that girl on the rock Princess Leila?
for an ice climbing picture, it's rather good, but it appears very violet on my screen (too much red in that) and the light is not very interesting. Hopefully, the ice formation are outstanding and the composition is good too.
why do french people try to trad climb??? ;)
Great pic, though I don't really like the sun and its ring.
I love this one, Jörg.
^ Excellent, Chris.
how many flowers have you walked on to take this great pic? ;)
may you consider cropping the climber out? I don't like ppl leading cracks on trad, it affects my ego.
j_ung, i would say it's too contrasted and dark, so the back of the climber is not visible : she seems extremely thin and tall! But the composition is good, of course.
the quality is still great despite the "low"!!!
^ a very little bit, but it's not that annoying to me.
it deserves neither a 2... nore a 10!
to overexpose a bit would have been good to highlight the person.
what is the guy in yellow doing?
"une lolotte de folie"!
I LOVE the tents in the background!
the background is overexpsosed and not enough contrasted IMO. To modify that wouldn't impair the climber who is already completely black.
don't start me on idaho ;)
that's such a great move!
a bit too dark (too late?)?
I think there's a finger in the upper left corner that should be cropped
how does the water affect the rubber friction?
really too much contrast!
a pity that the clothes don't contrast more with the rock!
good pic quality (light, colors, sharpness)
get a tan! :)
I didn't touch anything since I've taken this shot but ad a bit of light (+10) with AdobePhotoDeluxe.
climbing on war medals?!
a good indoor shot! Uncommon.
she took the wrong way!
I experienced this exact light in Box canyon back in late May (it was on this long 5.11c/5.12a route one or 2 left of Downloader 5.11a) but I hadn't my camera ready that day, and the other days I was ready, no one climbed it!
I like the overall atmosphere of this photo.
I want to own this house!
very bizarre photo. the balck and white probably ads a lot to the feeling. I don't know whether it's a good pic or not, but interesting!
nice nice place
the light and colours could be better, but the scene is very interesting.
it took me time to find the climber! The composition is good, but the contrast and light are not. Maybe a colorful tshirt would have been good too.
too much blue?
wonderful geological layers to appreciate here. Underexposed though.
larger pic, please.
Two annoying things : the date on the pic + the climber in the shade. Could have been great.
ahah!!! People are mean but funny!
The digital processing apparently made the picture a bit "blurry" and the holds are overexposed due to the excess of chalk. To see more of the problem (it's a boulder, not a route) would have been better according to ME too. But this photo is still good.
Very difficult light to shoot with overcontrasted areas.
Eventually uploading you IC pictures? I had a great time looking at them with you, Paul.
good pic but unfortunately bad resolution. 7.
how do you place shoes in the crack?
how is the landing?
too bad the light is bad. Good composition otherwise.
do wet hands and feet polish the holds faster than dry extremities?
not a reason to give it a 1...
what's on the upper left corner?
oh wel, I can't fix the link...
[url=http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=59396]you can check this one too [/url]
yes... though I didn't get any... :(
is the place clean?
with a wide angel, you don't need any pad ;) Good shot with your wide angle though.
a better than usual butt shot
you should get rid of this color labels, really! This pic isn't bad otherwise.
too bad the climber is in the shade. Good pic nonetheless.
difficult to rate. the bluriness is annoying to me, really.
what do you mean?
what a look, edge! how old is that pic?
it does not suck that much, but many things could be better : the left wall is overexposed, the climber is underexposed, we can't see his face (his expression, what he looks at), we can't see the exposure or length of the route (first bolt apparently, though).
wow, is that a true pic?
There's too much rock appearing overexposed and out of focus. But the climber is good, with an excellent film grain (nice skin). Good pic.
what are those black stripes??? Good nonetheless (would be much better without the and with a non-centered subject).
the sand and rock are a little too bit orange for my eyes.
Rine doesn't give up easily!
F6a usually means 6a Fontainebleau. Don't you mean 6a?
Yep! Sometimes we shouldn't climb! :)
I'm annoyed by the overall blue color... Was it after the sun set?
are you sure it's a blue one? ;)
for the ones interested : left is the snowy AIguille Verte + the teton of Le Drus ; middle in the far background is the Jorasses + Rochefort area ; right are the Midi + TAcul + Maudit + Mont-Blanc area. Great shot.
Your pics are nice, herre!
sunburns, exhaustion or saturation?
The climbers are a bit tiny and the second is hard to spot. Maybe less rock, a better resolution and brighter colors would do it. I don't know. I often take this kind of pics myself and I'm often disappointed too. I suppose this type of photo requires some professional lens and roll to turn out real good.
the return of Basti on rccom!
Fall 2005? We are still in summer!
the young gull saves it.
I don't get what it is.
thank you, I'm gonna change that! Thanks!
It was. Elliott tried it a few times before doing it. i can't remember the grade. Something like V2 or V3? Anyone knows this boulder?
good one! and nice glasses.
Alps or Jura?
be careful, a monkey is gonna eat you!
that's beautiful, you said? ;)
I discover this picture 2 years after the submisssion. I like it, but the climbers has dark clothes that don't contrast a lot with the face. But still nice.
I just checked, and the area exists under Central region > Melchsee-Frutt. Let me know when you would have moved the pics, so I can delete my comments.
man! It's south of Luzern!!! Why did you link that pic to the Falkenflue? You might consider link this pic and maybe the others to the right area, and create this area if it doesn't already exist in the route db.
over protected route in Smith Rock!? Good to know, I should have climbed this one!
I love the composition, the yellow helmet, and the beard of course!
I would not trust it anymore.
I like a lot the B&W shot, though there's a bit too much rock for my personal taste! I like a lot the color pic also. I suppose it's you on top of the boulder... And I love the result. 9. I definitely like you as a photographer.
What I don't really like in this pic is the hard contrast between the white washed out sky and the dark rock. I would have appreciated to see the face of the climber which is in the shade. But it's stilla a nice photo.
it's good nonetheless. There's a pic of me "posing" too in the Gunsmoke Traverse! I set the timer, ran to the problem, and started to traverse while doing the best moves i could, as I couldn't go through the crux either! <A href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photo/photo_show.php?list_sort=highest_first&list_keyword=&list_category=0&list_filter_user_id=thomasribiere&list_comment_user_id=&list_per_page=25&list_album_id=1035&list_CountryStateID=&list_AreaID=&list_SectionID=&list_mode=approved&list_period=None&list_start=6&id=56924">here it is...</A>
In the "Owner Controls" wndow, choose edit. Then clear the Cimbing Area. Look for Melchsee-Frutt in the drop-down menu (press m on your keyboard until you reach this area) and set it. Then select the Section or use the "Add new" tool if there's none (which can be a bit long...). Then select a route, add one, or don't link it to a route...
Then "save (without upload)".
I have tio confess that the route db for Switz. is a real mess!!! I try to reorganise it a bit yesterday, as the area manager for your country doesn't do anything more, but still a mess!
excessively contrasted with the main feature in the shade. But the composition is good.
original and nice... and purely home made!
that rocks! :)
thank you, loran.
I used the same tree, but not the same position.
I wish I could climb that hard, as all the nice looking cliffs in the Fränkische are not for average climbers... Worth a visit anyway for any climber and beer drinker going to Germany!
good but not enough light IMO.
great left foot grip.
I don't see any colors, but that might be my screen. Though dynoing, the whole effect seems static and the climber is looking downwards, which is dstracting to me. But not a bad shot!
too classical. Hand in focus, face out of focus, nothing else. It's not bad, but it's a bit too restrictive to me.
I like it a lot, though it almost looks like a "GI crawling in the mud" shot!
I find this one just simple and strong. Love it.
merock, the original is indeed better, but the result here is not that bad. WHat 'm going fed up with, is the tendency, especially in bouldering pics, to distort the climber boides and increase excessively the length of one arm by example. It's like a summer-autumn trend, and I wish climbers will become normaly balanced again this winter!
Too large, too blurry (too compressed probably), and too contrasted to my eyes. The FP image appears better. But good nonetheless (how envious you make me!).
excessively contrasted IMO. Fall is a season of delicateness, I find this one a bit "aggressive". But still good, of course.
I love this one.
I must say that I start to be a bit fed up with this kind of shots : huge hand/forearm in the foreground, with often the hand not even touching the rock. At least this one doesn't seem posed. But it's blurry and there is this plastic lace. Such a 2005 climbing picture. Only 7. I prefer some other shots from you.
Is she <b>bigmamahong</b>??? I spent one wonderful week climbing with her in Maple Canyon. Very nice person.
Another "arm first" picture... With a girl breast. And shiny colors. But no foot, an invisible right arm. Too "perfect", too colorful, to shiny. But no feeling in it according to me. Good picture, but no soul. Only 8. edited to say "Shit! I'm harsh in my comments sometimes! And there's a feeling in this shot."
Sorry, but it's just a technical shot. Is the person even climbing? The rock feature is not interesting, the light is bad, the forearm is almost out of focus.
I hadn't voted a 9 for a pic in a while. And it's for a slacklining picture...
A much nicer hook than on bvb's picture. Great original shot.
Nice colorful pic, Hillary. The resolution is very good too. I don't know why my pics never appear so clear. Must be a problem of the combination average lens + average scanner. Can I say that the climber is maybe a bit too "outcentered" to me?
I love this kind of shots! The light is not perfect, the colors are not bright (no red or yellow flashy tshirt), the rule of 1/3 is not respected, but there's some feeling in this picture. It's not impressive, it just makes me want to climb. Congratulations.
My first 10 in weeks and maybe months! Colorful, bright, well framed. The move on ths sloper is great, the rock is not that nice but its spotted aspect (due to the chalk) is eventually a plus.
warm lava climbing?
Super size for a non climbing person... ;)
haha, funny, I went to Pagan last May to ask if they knew how was the climbing in Maple Canyon!
Amazing red! Did you work on that one or is it just how the pic turned (roll or digital?)?
Almost a painting! I like how you split the picture : homogeneous rock one one side, more diverse colors and shapes on the other side. This one is very interesting.
Good one? I don't mind the top rope, but the rope itself that appears fat and too "horizontal" on the pic. I would have given it a 8 or 7 (a 9 with a different rope or without rope).
Definitely original. I'm just surprised there's no more comment.
The light was terrible to shoot with, but I think the result is worth to have taken the picture. The climber just don't contrast enough with the rock, bur the rock itself appears great.
Maybe that 3 moves up, elvislegs' back would have been in the sun, no?
It's funny, but the poor light kills that picture.
Very poor light and colors.
The most original picture here in weeks or months. I love it. Congratulations for both the silhouettes and the general framing of this picture. 10 of course. Why did I never see it on the FP???
oops! Sorry for the 5... Didn't mean it.
this high contrasted scene is hard to shoot. But the result is pretty good.
I didn't know the cliff from that angle. The prow is nice.
I can't see almost nothing even if I add a lot of light on my screen. How does it appear on yours? Do my pics appear overexposed on your computer?
it's a pity that your arm masks your face. But good action shot.
from the thumbnails, you look like two obese persons! funny.
I like this pic in brown tones. I'm not fond of the kind of pics where the arm takes half the pic anyway. But the overall result is nice though.
The climber looks very small compared with the spotter!
Great one. Thanks for the submission.
I can see that some people are still nice with their votes... I like this picture.
Great feeling of serenity.
Very nice composition. I tried to hide the girl on the right to figure out if it was better or not without her, but it's just different. I like the water coming out of the rock.
as asked what was the exposure time if you remember?
I like the pants. A lot. Grey or white would have been sad and annoying by example. Red or green ones would have been nice, but maybe not with this tshirt. But here these tobacco pants are just in harmony with the rock, as the shoes are. 9.
I do it because I really like most of your shots! Some hate me for that.
I like the overall red tones. And the small depth of field gives the impression that he is soloing.
I have to say that the clivage AND the light blue shirt catch the eyes a bit too much. but maybe it's just not too much. Great one again.
Crop out the rope bag??? Maybe you could copy and paste some plants and put them in place of the bag... Good like it is. The left elbow blockage makes me suffer.
I voted this one more than the average! I think that it suffers from a low size. I like the whole Bleau surroundings : birches, pines, sand...And these slopers are killers! Do you know the difficulty of this problem?
Is your pad on a wheel???
^ all the draws are the same way but the one he his clipping! And the bag is probably moving (don't forget that climbing is not a static sport...). People are strange...
Nice one. Warm colors. Good composition.
A black and green shot. that's original.
Relaxing colors. But stressing face.
Less inviting than the "doesn't fart" one, but the shirt and hair cut are sweet. The chalk spot is a bit too lit, and maybe there's too much rock photographed. But good for sure...
I like how the roof line, the climber and the horizon are only slightly diverging. The brown colors are relaxing with just a red touch to focus the attention on the climber. The light is good (what did you use for that? Flash or reflector?).
stupid French... comment about the alpinestar comment, but the order is messed...
I like that sky.
excuse me, but the horizon is obviously tilted.
Thank you for the 9. I'm not sure it deserves such a high note, but it's nice anyway.
where is the crashpad?
This pic is uninteresting in many ways. And what if it was a troll...
I hope you don't go to work with such a tie...
this one is amazing. Doesn't make me want to submit my own pics anymore. :(
Why is it only preferred size? it's all blurry! Auto-resized by rc.com? Or submitted this way? A pity.
I saw the article + pics in the last issue of Grimper, a french climbing mag. Interesting, though not for me!
Almost perfect if not perfect.
The whole composition is cool and saves an otherwise average pic.
I like it really more than you "leaves" shots. Maybe the blury part is too large, but maybe not. Original shot.
You look less tired than when I met you in Bishop!
You have a good eye, know how to use your photo gear, and have the opportunity to take shots of famous climbers. Long photo life to you. I would like to create such happy reactions through my own climbing pics.
it looks windy.
9. Because the climber's face is underlit.
The engagement of Les Gros Sablons. Chilling!
too bad the climber is only starting the route. It takes some interest and strength away from this otehrwise good picture.
ANother comment has not been made : the horizon IS tilted. What! No horizon on this pic?
what tradrenn said
The moves look uneasy : heel hook, vertical crack for the left hand, "drapeau" with the right leg... Cool problem. The bluriness doesn't trouble me, but there's too much sky maybe. You can't satisfy everyone, can you? :)
I really love this urban climbing series. So more original than the autumn leaves one. The plane is great, just adds to the urban / modernity aspect of the shot. Good job, though this one looks overexposed compared with others of your shots or with other shots on the site.
look at those arms!!!
there's a light beam between the Matterhorn and you that I find a bit annoying, like I would have some sun on my own computer screen, but the photo is really great.
excellent composition and colours. Could be a Malevitch painting!
I shouldn't always trust my memory!
No, I didn't boulder there last year, but I did a few year ago, and I'm not sure I climbed on that rock.
But colours and light are not that good.
Everything I don't like about bouldering photography is here. Even if it's a good pic.
You don't submit as many pics as you used to do, but they are always good if not fantastic. This is one is original by the use of this wide angle lens. If the ground was not visible it could have been a bouldering shot! Any trip in South France in the next months?
What is the focus on? The pic seems a bit blurry to me. But excellent composition.
^ happy man!
ANy other shot with more crack and a smaller climber? i wonder what it would look like?
where are the spotters?
Funny how you (re)framed the picture.
oversaturation? The rock at the bottom left as a strange bright orange face.
poor quality shot. But nice route.
The shot is not perfect, but it radiates so many nice feelings : strength of the nature, concentration of the climber, craefulness of the spotter. I like it a lot.
Great couple. You look like two nice persons.
kachoong,it looks like newbierockstar's chalkbag is attached to a thong!
Nice pic, but I imagine how great it would be with a more contrasting climber. It looks like climbing on metal.
No need to bash this pic. Great light and composition. It may be posed (I mean that the owner of the hands might not actually climb) but the result is nice for sure. 8 for me.
state of the art bandage! ;)
Great pic! i love the fallen boulders with their parallel lines.
overuse of cement! Who equipped that project!
socalbolter, this picture is good, but I was really wondering what did happen to the colours. Nothing more.
ah! bouldering, traveling light!
You have been shooting excellent pics these last months, Phil. New shooting tools?
^ I know, I struggle with the same compression problems...
- ... then I grab Indian Creek's yeti and shook him strong...
- Oh! Tony, you should have seen his face when he realsied that humans could be more hairy!
This is the essence of climbing. Peace, purity, simplicity, dolce vita.
I like the way you think mshore. It's a very professional approcah of photography.
You should definitely see a psychiatrist. Seriously.
Nice story, and congrats. A first outside lead is an important thing.
I like the feeling of this pic : exhaustion and incredulity.
It was so hot that if Chris could ahve climbed naked, maybe he would have! What's amazing is that I almost didn't touch the colours : the picture and the image scanned from the neg are like the upoaded image. so red! What I would have loved would have been a blue sky... Not for that one.
June of 2005 of course! ahah!
I always see <a href=http://www.rockclimbing.com/photo/photo_show.php?list_sort=highest_first&list_keyword=&list_category=0&list_filter_user_id=&list_comment_user_id=&list_per_page=25&list_album_id=&list_CountryStateID=&list_AreaID=&list_SectionID=&list_mode=my&list_period=None&list_start=35&id=61716> this picture I took</a> when I se yours. They are so similar!
When I saw the shot on the FP, I thought it was a picture from Jörg Z. It's typically his kinds of colours and climbers! Good shot.
why not the url on the tree or on the rim of the hat?
And she has only one arm!
