Tom Evan's Composite..

Average Rating = 3.50/5 Tom Evan's Composite..

Joined 2 of Tom Evan's Slide to put together this photograph.

Thats me leading one of the bolt ladders on Tangerine Trip.

(Probably pitch 16)

You can see me twice on the shot because its two pictures stitched together.. the first shot taken is the top shot, of me on lead, the second shot is the bottom part, after i rapped down and i'm back at the starting belay.

Stitching the two pictures together made the rope disapper, so dont be alarmed.

Big Solo Anchor

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Big Solo Anchor

This is part of my solo anchor at pitch 16 (or 15). I'm uploading it to post on the "Rate This Anchor" thread. There is alot going on so i will explain 3 bolts 1 cordalette (brown) each bolt has 1 light D biner. There are other biners clipper to those biners, but none of them bear any significant weight. The orange petzl with red cord is a keeper cord from my chest harness (which happens to now just be hanging on that bolt (plus another off camera)) The purple big locker is the main PP biner. Attached to that is. 1 - my backup (blue sling) on locker 2 - lead line (locker - purple line) two other lockers that i can't make out what they are holding up and one of my aiders (probably what i'm standing on) the haul bag is docked on another anchor to the right (off camera). The lead line is backed up to the bolt on the left

I nabbed this shot of the first party that summitted the newly cleaned zodiac while they were still low on the route. Shot was taken from Tangerine Trip, probably about 1/2 way up the route. Looks like they are at about the 4th belay?

Average Rating = 4.00/5 TT summit celebration.

Scott, Nick, and me standing at the top of Tangerine Trip. Scott and Nick topped out on the same day on Sea Of Dreams. It was a great moment, since we had all blasted from the ground on the same day. And had been shouting at each other throughout the week.

Ricardo Soloing Zodiac -- final day, pitch 15

Average Rating = 4.05/5 Ricardo Soloing Zodiac -- final day, pitch 15

Tom Evans was taking slides of all the climbers on el cap this september. He had a massive lens and snapped this shot of me on my last day on the route.

This is pitch 15, it starts as left traverse past a bolt to the seam that i am currently climbing. The seam is rather thin (black alien size), and you'll need to backclean quite a bit.

I was so happy to be on my final day of this climb.

Yosemite Falls from the meadow

Average Rating = 3.95/5 Yosemite Falls from the meadow

This frame was shot in may of 2002.

My first visit to the valley since i was 8 yrs old.

I was not a climber at the time, but i was impressed by all the granite, and all the possibilities. Yosemite is such a beautiful and special place.

Shot on TCN-400 with a red-filter around noon. (hence the LARGE contrast)
