Thin ice

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Thin ice

I really didn't believe you can climb ice 3 mm thick, until I got on this stuff. If you don't move your feet at ALL, scrape your picks in and pre-weight them, you can do pretty well! nuts.

This photo is from Feb, 2001, taken by Rob of Massachusetts. I had this black outfit I used to wear while winter climbing in AZ. Usually it was too thin for the shade and boiling in the sun. Days is a classic 3 pitch climb on End Pinnacle in the East Stronghold

The salathe roof

Average Rating = 3.50/5 The salathe roof

Here I'm leading the roof just as light fades. As fate would have it, we didn't get to Long ledge until 3am. I spent 6 hours at the hanging belay in the middle of the headwall. The roof looks so small from sous le toit!

I'm aiding off el cap tower early in the morning on the salathe' wall. Any delusions of freeing this 1.5 inch pitch faded long ago through hauling and carrying a huge rack.

this photo reminds me of the climbing ad campaign a while back that went something like "through adversity...." salty peanuts weren't all that appealing, tho, with too little water in the bags

on el cap tower

Average Rating = 2.50/5 on el cap tower

one of the coolest things about climbing el cap is the changing perspective of cathedral rock below. This rock is so huge, yet looks small a couple of days up el cap.

sous le toit ledge

One of the most incredible views off the Salathe' is off of the tiny Sous le Toit ledge. God, I wouldn't want to sleep on this ledge. Maybe alone after 12 hours of climbing or something.
