Looks like he is climbing on mud.
Cool, glad you're inspired. Phil and Steve deserve all the credit. This place is a blast to shoot.
yeah, you're right. I lied. My grandmother did it yesterday with only one hang.
Nice overview shot.
Nope, he strung 'em together. He's 43 and charges huge waves and is still doing 5.13. I belayed him on Pyromania just after this and he sent it without a fall. Of course he'd never spray about it, way to humble. We did Whitney the next day...
Oh yeah, he did laps because he forgot a draw so he just did the climb again. Ha ha, he's something...
This is simply one of the most outstanding photos I've seen on this website. Put it in a calendar. Well done!
A+!! A 10! Oh, I mean, .12a
I don't dress 'em, I just take the pictures. But you're right, next time I'll ask him to drag out his red spandex from the 80's!
What campground?... there are many.
I can't stop laughing!
Cool lighting. Nice shot.
Did you crash into the river?
I'm cussing at the f---ing rope. I should have used longer slings. The rope drag on this 5.6, if done in one 130' pitch, makes it more like 5.10.
See, now this is the kind of shot we want to see in the BEST OF RC.COM PHOTO BOOK!!!! Sweeeeeeeet!
it is good! A sweet 5.10b with nobody around but wild sheep!
oh my god I'm glad I live in California...
I thought they edited out this crap?
dude, that's the one that got away! We made it unguided up to the bottom of the summit pyramid on the right... this brings me back! What a glorious Mt. and a RAD shot!!!
A cute girl who climbs can smile all she wants to in my book.
Actually, if you've got the head for it, then this route would be a fine solo. Much easier than Cathedral Peak.
ps- this is the same shot as the Surfer Magazine cover, but from a different angle.
Cute! This wall is actually really good! Super solid rock, but the waves out front are even better!
Sweet, Central Cal just keeps getting better! Nice find and cool picture!
try it in b&w since it has mainly grey tones! Killer route!
Location, location, location. 100 feet from the Hwy.
yeah, he's going surfing right after he makes the dyno. I like the hands (spotter)... shows how high he is. Great use of light. That's real photograpy.
" This is one of my first-ever climbing vacation in Acadia National Park." doubledare, your six pack is better than mine but that is one classic quote...
Man, this brings back memories. I did this climb solo and when I got to the summit it was a whiteout. Lucky you!
Take a chill pill Hosh, I'm tied in on my end. Look closely and you'll see the other end run seperately through the biner and under my leg down to Ed.
Pop in a cam! This picture makes me want to climb it. Cool!
This is one great climb! Looks like you got it on a nice day too! We got lightning just minutes after our summit party! Cool pic!
Adventure climbing at its best (worst?). On sight on lead, the first bolt went in the white patch 7' above my head. And yes, all those cobbles are loose.
Don't know, I wasn't there...
How high up is that roof? Might have been better to shoot this vertically to show the route more. Looks fun.
turn this sucker 1/4 turn counter clockwise and it'll be a rad pic! Try it! Cool colors.
Yeah, Old Town looks like my kind of climb! Sweet!
OK, I had to come back. This is the BEST picture on this whole site! It should be permanently on the front page! I just noticed the SOS in beer cans. AWEsome!
If I had a nickle for every photo somene took of their cool bloody hands I'd have $2.55. Please let this be the last. Is it a pride thing? I don't get it.
I appreciate that you didn't monkey with the colors, Nice desert pastels! Pretty picture.
cool rock, cool positioning, studly lead, great photo!
I can fly! Yeah, superb effort! Nice overview shot of the rock! 10!
Rad! Crop this into a panorama and put it on your wall!
This used to be the best crag in the area but it sheered off during an earthquake and fell into the lake. The climbs are still good, but a little slippery. Bring a snorkle...
next time use flash fill...
Duuuude, where is this!? Luminy? WOW, this place is rad!
This one is rad!~ the draws swingin, her right hand just barely on it, the grimmace, the belayer totally dialed it on her... very nice shot! Good timing!
I want biceps like that!
what a trippy rock!
This looks like one f-cked up boat trip!
F-ck, I told you we shoulda brought a boat!
There's the boat! Vamonos!
I think the boat went this way...
This is where the lightning knocked us out of the boat.
Chelo e Abel... Donde esta el barco?
Up a creek without a ... boat.
Sweet FA Louie! Killer route man, great job!
dude, who is your rad belayer? He is a stud!
Go Brandon! Wahoo! Louie, this is the best picture from that day! Sweet timing! Awesome!
I'd have to disagree with you. I'm tied in to a 3 point cordelette and a fixed piece, backed up by tieing myself in with the rope. You're just not seeing the rope clearly. Go back to zzzzzzzz .
What size cam would that take?
Theye were swept away during the immense flood...
So now I just use cow patties. Cheaper than a crash pad.
mdude/gunkiemike... it is a BD Bod harness... No belay loop. Doh! Now maybe you can just enjoy the view (probably not)?
Actually, it's a tradition out here to climb in socks. It dates way back to the place's very beginnings. (See Brent on the column picture...) I mean, you don't have to, but if you want to be accepted, you should wear 'em.
Really sharp (what dpi is this?). I'm pretty sure this is a "her" though...
They don't let you choose supersize when you choose the landscape/scenic category. I'll have to wait for them to do it.
I am amazed that nobody has commented yet at how cool the belayer looks...
really grainy, and flash fill would have really helped it out.
This baby now sits on top of Slate's Spire (5-20-06). There have been 10 recorded ascents to date (about one a year). The spire is now in the California Coastal National Monument.
yeah, it is hard to spot. It is 9 miles north of Ragged Point. There is a large dirt pullout on the outside curve and a pointy Rock. There will be a gravel road down to it almost.
A California classic, and the rock is really awesome!
pretty cool rock formation. Looks fun.
They're actually leg warmers.
His favorite movie is Flashdance.
What a feeling!
No Kidding! Or at least a garden shovel.
I'll be honest, I like the fact that there is a beautiful woman in the picture. Symmetry, blue, green, that's all good too. But if she was fat and had hairy armpits and no hair I probablly wouldn't care about the symmetry so much...
I can hear them chanting... "we're not worthy".
Staying true with the lucky socks! Love it!
That homeless dude is stealing your crash pad!
Yep, pretty cool!
Ah yes, the "look".
This picture made me smile. Way to think outside the box!
Wow, that's pretty cool! What a world we live in!
Way to go Peace! Cool car down on the road too. High!
Hard to see the rope. But cool wide angle.
Beautiful picture (tough lighting but you pulled it off), but I'm glad I'm not him!
That's pretty rad (the climb, the climber, and the pic!). Nice!
Yeah, you go! How stoked are you two!
Yeah! Another cool place I'd like to get to. Nice work!
Yeah! Good on ya for makin' it there!
The wide angle distorts/bends a the edges. It is slightly overhung. Go climb it and you'll see.
Yeeaahhh! That's nice!
So that's what the place looks like! Very cool.
This is a sweet picture! Front page material.
Odd thing with the shoes...must be an OW climber's trick?
yeah, composition and lighting are there. Cool shot.
retarded comments like the ones by dorky_alpine and saber_up_my_butt are the reason why I don't bother to post pics anymore. If the climber wasn't there, there would be two people staring up at a rock, or if there were no people, you'd have no idea how big the rock was. Don't listen to these kooks. Nice shot.
This is a great route! Gotta love the Needles!
nice timing Louie!
No doubt! Nice shot.
Great perspective! Cool shot!
Yep, this one is heading to the front page. Nice colors and contrast. Great silhouette!
Surreal and cool!
Louie, this is such a bad ass picture! I want a poster!
Way to go! Inspiring! I hear the surf is good too!
Sweet shot! Are you bragging about your sweet camera to make us jealous or are you getting $$ from Canon :)
good eye for an opportunity.
bigger! Totally sweet!
dramatic, nice job.
Yes, you're right, inspiring. Doug is the epitome of positive energy.
yeah, bigger. How's the climbing? And is there surf?
If the weather holds, I'm going up second weekend in November. I hear this route is pretty damn rad.
What dome is that in the background?
Bring back the shoe! There hasn't been as good a one since!
give your climbing buddies red and yellow shirts for Christmas.
That is how you do a butt shot.
Great use of the wide angle. Wouldn't be the same without it. 17mm?
Great lines in this picture. Very nice! I wish I took it!
That coil of rope looks problematic. And does it cross the trail? Nice layback though. The yellow helmet helps draw the eye.
Nope, it's Tom from Nipomo. But I've had Olympia beer (not really actually).
Nice angle, makes it look steep.
dude, next time I'm also bringing my shoes and rope!
I'd say it is 5.7+. It is smooth and balancy at the bottom, but has bomber incuts on the upper half, cool granite plates. A lot of variety for such a short climb, 40'.
Man, I want THAT in my backyard! Beautiful!
Yikes! Is that a bird nest behind it?
Too bad he isn't climbing, instead of just sitting there. Nice, but could have been epic!
I don't know, the cliffs up beyond them look pretty inviting... get up there!
Use a flash next time.
use a flash! Please, for the love of god, use a flash!!!
Look harder, it's the thing with arms and legs and red shirt climbing that hard to see crack on the right side of the picture.
That Velcro is awesome stuff! Way to stick it!
I've only done it a couple times, but man, that looks like a text book frozen waterfall.
Louie, I think you're ready for a calendar. Sweet.
So now I know. Great to see overview shots like this.
That's a huge roof ;)
If you consider it heady, you need to get out more.
Ahhhh, that brings back good memories. Glad I got to lead it.
I wonder if a photo-stitch technique would have worked. I can't even comprehend that solo. Gnarly.
Beautiful, almost looks like a painting.The lines are amazing.
Great contrast between man and route. Dramatic pose as well, good timing. (send me the pics :)
This whole place just seems magical.
Wow, 12 pitches of slab? Sounds like the Glacier Pt. Apron of the East.
gasp... pro looks tricky.
Yeah, what's out left? The dark rock makes for great contrast. Maybe try it next time out. Sweet shot though.
very cool! Surf doesn't look so great though :)
was there a closure? get this picture off the web!
This could have been a book cover... shoot vertical and before the clip!
I realize a superwide distorts, but I actually kind of dig it.
cool! Did he send it?
great colors. Try and shoot vertically next time.
That's my cam, my girlfriend couldn't get it out. Mail it to me please... thanks!
Yeah, your shadow is cheating, I think he's standing on a tree limb.
Great to see climbers having fun! Great shot! Many would have posed for the hardcore shot.
I think this is a good shot, but it is the size of a postage stamp... can you resubmit it larger?
great timing! Nice shot man!
Man, that looks a lot like Shadow Rock in San Luis Obispo, CA. Cool shot.
Louie, the contrasts at this place are wild! Very cool line on the rt facing corner!
great contrasts of dark and light.
Pebble Beach as in the golf course? Monterey?
Nice going on the FA!
He almost looks like a bug that got squished by the rock. The scale of it is just silly, what a crack! It also almost looks like two different types of rock.
aka the East Face... Hey, you don't see this place in photos much, or at least I don't. Nice! Post more! Is Cosmic Wall any good? I've heard mixed opinions.
Take this picture off. It misrepresents climbers in general. Most are not illiterate and actually follow rules, or at least aren't dumb enough to break the rules, take pictures, and then post them on the web and spray about it.
Yes, and if you belay from there "the next ledge up", you don't get this view or this picture.
Yep, Hermaphrodite's Flake indeed.
great to know, thanks!
almost 300 views and no comments... jeez...
If you look close, you can see seals on the rocks.
you mean that pile of loose blocks with flowers on it...? No you won't see me there.
You gotta climb it to believe it... very good! And there are others...
Actually, it is solid. That scar came from the first ascent cleaning. This place is surprisingly good now with several new routes.
I gotta get on it!
Looks highly featured, what's it rated?
Did ya use a filter or hue it up?
It'd be good as a black and white also!
There is a face hidden in the stone to the left. Very cool.
Wonderful... but we gotta buy Grahm some new shirts...
I love shots like this, the insignificance of man... beauty!
I could, but then I'd have to kill you ; )
Between SLO and SB.
It's shots like these that make me put routes/areas like this on my hit list. Outstanding and inspiring. Thanks for sharing! Is all the rock in this area like that?!
A study of form...or an excuse to get a girl to take her top off. A little tweak in photoshop would do wonders for the shadows and highlights.
Land sakes, you did the second of Precious! I knew you'd be the one. I doubt anyone else is willing to risk their melon. So... how bad was it? Did any of the bowling balls come off? We cleaned it, but it still had to be bad.
Grahm, are these shots going to disappear once Shuteye reopens? This shot is the best of the bunch. Talk a girl into doing it in a bikini...
Great timing to wait for the climber to hit the warm spot of sunlight. Cool lines and contrast.
Beautiful picture and rock... but as usual, the one in California is better... ;) take a look for yourself-
I've never used them, but have been in plenty of situations where I know I could have... I'd like to be in one of those situations right now. Bring it on!
Nice contrast between what seems to be a black and white cliff and the mono-chromatic blue of the climber. Did you desaturate in PS? Looks like it. Regardless, good effect. Shot with a wide angle (guessing 17mm) either on rap or on scaffold? Looks more like a blunt broken corner system than a crack. Anyway, abstract it is, and looks fab.
Good shadow work.
cool colors but lacks a subject.
There is an amazing 5.9+ going up the middle of the face on the far right side of the picture. It is one of the best in the state (thanks Grahm for the FA!). Go do it!!
makes me wanna climb it.
Ohhh...look at the wicked roof behind him... Hmmmm
Looks sweet to me. Don't get lured in by the negative kooks.
They're everywhere too. Nice colors. I wanna go.
Ah, so there is an alternative to the late show in Oakhurst (late meaning 6:55pm)!
Yes, that's what the title says.
next time ask the climber to step off the rock a bit towards the edge so you can get a full silhouette of the climber. Never be afraid to speak up if you really want the shot.
not called Ocean Front... I took the picture and developed the place. Not sure who wrote Ocean Front on all the pictures. They aren't even on the same rocks! The is the Pearls.
Almost looks like a painting. A little hazy, maybe try to add some contrast in PS to to bring out the climber? Still a cool pic.
Welcome me! ;)
Looks rad. How's the climbing? Where do you get the guidebook?
Tunnel Crag, yes? Which face is this? South?
I think they paint the boulder so it doesn't rust ;)
Looks like they've all been stripped of hangers... someone doesn't like climbers.
What is this route called? Left of Drilla... .11a?
