can i please go to the needles? This looks like a cover photo.
Yikes, who knew one of my pictures would create such a rukus? For the record, i didn't use any 'autocolor', but I did color correct slightly using a parameter in the 'Shadow/Highlight' tool, and i played with the contrast a bit. Whatever...it was his first 10a trad lead so let's give it up for Kyle!
Great Climbing Kyle! Thanks for the Photo Credit too! Climb Safe...
Awesome. Just awesome comments, thanks guys. He was totally bad ass.
No, he had already done a few laps on the route, and figured he could lead it placing trad gear, so he did. That's when I shot it.
8flood8, the Rock type is Gneiss. Why to poor rating on the photo?
8flood8, Thanks for your honesty and criticism. I appreciate your hanging out the integrity flag in this cesspool we call the internet. I agree on all points. There are a couple others of him climbing on my site, where you can see feet, face, better position etc.. But this one showed all the gear. That was my intention. You are totally right on all points, though and I appreciate your honesty.
I thought it was Schist, but on the rock type description on RC.com it says gneiss. Whatever...
Thanks for the comments. I agree that it's not my best photo, but I was trying to show that the route was leadable w/o clipping the bolts. It's blurry because I compressed it and reduced the resolution so that RC.com would accept the file. It is the original photo, albeit slightly modified to adhere to web content. And there's no way you're going to get down on the photo calling it a 'reverse butt shot' Please. It's anything butt. But again, thanks for the comments... Not.
He lowered off the chains at the top, then re-led it later, clipping the hanging draws and pulling out the gear.
agreed, but all I know is that when I led it, I was psyched to have the hanging draws...
Thanks! I worked hard on it. I built 'stilt's so I could hang and push myself out from the rock. Andy climbed up between them. I cropped them out, but the feet of the stilts are just about level with his head.
I stand corrected. 5.9 it is. Edited as such.
Yikes, that was also the first thing I noticed. It'd be hard to stay on one's feet if/when she falls.
Thanks for the tip, bro. I'll tell them... But did you like the photo?
WOW! Thanks everyone for the overwhelming comments. I've been working really hard to get better and better climbing photos. This feels really good. Easily one of my better shots.
Nice. Thanks for the top rating! I can't wait to get back out there to shoot some more.
It is a nest of tattered webbing, that, for some, may qualify as a 'fixed' anchor. But I always back that anchor up with gear and equalize for good measure.
Woah! Thanks so much everyone! This is very encouraging feedback. It makes me want to grab my camera, rig up, and go get the next shot. Woohooo!
What is this? An ad for Vitamin water? a vegas health club ad? a poster child for women who make bad decisions they can live with? What does this have to do with climbing? If it wasn't here on RC.com, would any of us associate her reeeediculously hot body with sending V4? Prolly not.
Stellar Effort! The noise almost adds to the mystique.
