With great photos like this, people are gonna find out what we've got down here. Muy lindo foto.
Come on, this thing's not that heroic: the bomber hand slots don't even rate in at V0 by today's standards. I remember doing this in my slippery green PAs back in about 1981 and in the week or so we spent at Mt. Woodsen we never say another climber. I sure did love that place.
you need to get a pair of glasses for the dog
To get to the highest point, don't you have to climb the tree or something?
Has Sharma transformed into elastic man? Looks like his hand has stretched out beyond normal human proportions. I'll bet that helps with reach problems.
Try heel hooking the rail, should be easier.
A little redundant, I guess. First I post a photo that says: look at me, I'm a climber. Then I got this Prana shirt on, which says: look at me, I'm climber. Twice in the same picture.
Even though it's been about 15 years, I remember distinctly this downclimb as well as the scary 5.11 highball to the left. Thanks for the memories.
Actually the route is sandbag 5.11a.
Did he grab for the chains at the top?
En La Sombra de Gooroo: only in La Vigilancia would an overhanging face get called a slab.
Standard procedure in La Vigilancia: stick clip.
There are dihedrals in the east? This looks like a really cool climb: is it in a wilderness area? Bet the weather's always bad though. And why's the crux a nightmare?
Nice shot. I think I might of climbed this. Isn't there a route (about 5.11a) that continues up the arete? Or I am thinking about a different place on the boulder?
Was this rock ever closed? Used to OK to climb here in the old days.
loose skin makes good love handles
Thanks. I must of lucked out: this was a quick shot with a standard digital camera taken while trying to corral two small children.
You should be proud indeed. But get your hubby a pair of Tevas for belaying. Just looking at this makes my feet hurt.
Reminds me of my weekend outings. If that's you with the baseball cap, who took the picture?
Peter Croft must be pretty absent minded: once again he forgot to bring the rope.
I hate flexible people. I'm stiff as a board.
Soooo quarzite, dude.
Notice how the photo 'Sarah, in color', which is quite similar in quality to this one, already rates an 8, when nobody's voted on this one? Could it be: the BABE factor? I'll vote 7, just to get you off the bottom, even though I'm looking at a slabby sport route.
I like the half shadow/half light result.
I love the concentration in her expression. Has a very natural, unposed feel to it. But it looks like those hexes are slung with shoestring.
I think he should have to clip all those quick draws before the climb is officially over.
This is a really nice shot. Too bad it's in Texas.
Talk about a choss pile. But where's the snow? Maybe there is something to this global warming stuff.
I love this climb. Did you do any other nice Storm Mountain 5.9s or 5.10s?
Some day you gotta go back and try Psychostematics and Psychobabble. Psychostematics will have you stemming and Psychobabble will definitely leave you babbling.
nice angle for the shot
No pose here. This is slab climbing in its pure, raw form. Not pretty, I know. But why hide the truth?
You have some nice bouldering shots
Are those guys down below spotting or chanting "we are not worthy"?
I'm SO lazy about taking photos I could kick myself. It would be possible to sit on top of Fisura de Jim and shoot the entire last pitch from a great angle. Maybe someday ...
ĄDios mio! żEs la cabeza de Juancho?
Thanks. I like your shots of Blodgett Canyon. Would you believe I climbed there 25 years ago?
This is a friend of mine from Argentina named Diego. Me, I'm probably older than your Ma and Pa.
PS: There's a photo of Rolando Gariboti soloing the crack in a recent Climbing Magazine (in an article by Greg Crouch about lovelorn free soloers).
I hope that's not a can of Budweiser
Holy moly, I'm impressed. Is that tatty looking thing higher up some kinda gear? Onsight or take the flight.
Photos like this could ruin your stature as rockclimbing.com's number 1 dudebabe.
Nice photo and I love this climb. But I have news for you. The hand jams you're experiencing there, in climbing parlance, are better known as: totally bomber dude.
I've never climbed in the east, but this place appears to have the same kind of rock as Balcarce. Even the same orange lichens. It's like the coolest climbing rock I've ever known.
The warm up route for Hell cave. Ouch. I was dumb enough to do this route twice.
This brings back the memories. What a beautiful piece of stone.
Sorry to see a couple of dimwits bombed your photo. Obviously they're idiots who've never climbed this incredible rock.
I'm glad you're enthusiastic about my bouldering shots. You should vote on some of those more recent ones that got bombed.
I was hoping to get a still shot.
Not bad for an old dude, huh?
There are no shat routes on Fitz Roy and labarrosa knows it.
Watch out on those highballs, Curt. Heh heh.
What do you suggest, Curt, Grecian Formula?
This is on the back side of Robbin's crack, right? I don't remember how much I cheated at the start (cause I did), but I actually got up this thing in PAs in 1981.
Clip bolts!? Larry don't need no stinking bolts.
So what's Larry up to these days?
about as remote as climbing gets in the lower 48
Are you sure you didn't mix this up with a shot of John Denver before he dyed and straightened his hair?
Looks like it would be easier to climb up the crack.
Where's that james_climber? There was a kid from Monterrey who stopped by my place to boulder a couple of months back.
Hey, that's me! Considering the photo's title, I hope I didn't fall.
Careful, baigot. With cool photos like this, people are gonna think we know how to climb.
You gotta teach that dog to pay more attention when it's giving you a spot.
Looks like Jim had a bit too much and is trying to hurl.
miavzero, I so groove on your purity, dude. If only we could be like
you. I can tell that you are living the adventure and have relinquished your wanking since tommy touched your hand. Who could befoul the hand that touched tommy's? Come to Argentina and show us the way.
Wow, a bouldering shot from j_ung. Proof there is life after trad. Pinch that pebble hard!
That's a pretty stout beard for a veganboy
Now that's what I call goodwill.
The way those shorts are riding is in direct violation of the TOS.
merock, you really do put some of the best pictures on this site. You make Texas look so good, I almost want to visit there. ALMOST.
Your description cries out for a comma between 'Zozopalooza' and
'Nicerack'. By the way, and I hope this doesn't sound sleazy, but
now I can see that 'Nicerack' has to be one of the better choices for a
username on this site.
That is wrong on so many levels. First off the hair clashes with the drill. Then there's that tan. Can you say 'melanoma'? And then this idiot's wasting time, energy and perfectly good bolts to equip a moderate hand crack. If Bozo wants to drill bolts, I got a buttload of more sensible projects around here that need work.
Those are some pretty cool white pants. Where's the rugby shirt?
There seems to be an ominous blackness behind Ashely, which is consuming the socal universe
get busy and write your thesis, camhead
Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore ....
Quoth the raven 'Nevermore'
My wife captures the happy clipper. Did you see any snakes?
One rad looking 5.6. Must be old school. But what's with the hat?
Thought it might be Little Cottonwood Canyon (Utah).
Holy moly, is that a gigantic vulva in the upper left hand corner, or what? Shows you where my mind is at.
Ha. Now that's what I call a stick clip.
Straighten those arms a bit and you won't get so pumped.
Where you gonna place all that gear?
If you're drinking Pabst, then you must need a sponsor real bad
cool shorts .... for a dork
The rock looks rad.
Makes me wanna be there.
Let's go back to the eighties?
I wanna be there now and send. Just seeing this boulder problem makes me feel tingly.
There are four one pitch routes on this side of M2. All finish at the hump to right of the summit point. From left to right: 1) Del Diedro (5+) which has the climber on it; 2) Socotroco (originally rated 6a+) 3) Aqua Lung (6c) and 4) Necisito un Tampon (6b+).
Looks like the moon came out early that day
This route will always mean a lot to me and this particular pitch is a kick.
I guess you put on yout game face
The ultimate answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything is 42
Is this one of those lego Bible story thingies?
Is that one-a-them-there Pennsylvania trad climber getups?
I don't understand what is happening in this photo
