Rock Climbing Photos : Sport : Biggest chipping in the world

Biggest chipping in the world

Biggest chipping in the world

Ok this is one of the routes which leaves you with trembling feet and a stupid smile on your face when you clip the anchors. Exhilarating and entirely unexpected moves I took a series of photos of Andreas redpointing it and had lot of trouble to decide which photo to upload. I have chosen the least likely of the series (ignoring several technical/ composition no-noís like the chopped climbers head, the overexposed upper part etc) The reason why I have chosen this shot is to save a friends onsight attempt since he checks these pages and the most exiting move of the route is really unorthodox and huge giveaway ( I donít want to spoil it for him:) The other reason is that the closer shots do not depict the features of the whole wall and what it really is. The biggest and probably the oldest chipping in the world:) A man made half finished crack on an abandoned ancient quarry from 2 century BC!!! Screw chipped holds! Here you got a whole chipped route and one thatís 2000 years old :)
