4 out of 5 stars 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.

To get to the highest point, don't you have to climb the tree or something?

3 out of 5 stars 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.

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.

5 out of 5 stars 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.

4 out of 5 stars Actually the route is sandbag 5.11a.
Did he grab for the chains at the top?

4 out of 5 stars 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?

4 out of 5 stars 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.

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?

3 out of 5 stars 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 think he should have to clip all those quick draws before the climb is officially over.

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.

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 ...

4 out of 5 stars 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.

4 out of 5 stars Sorry to see a couple of dimwits bombed your photo. Obviously they're idiots who've never climbed this incredible rock.

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.

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.

5 out of 5 stars 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+).
