After After Six
This is me at the top of After Six - my very first Valley climb. Notice I'm wearing my running shoes - I wore them for the last five pitches (out of six) because my insanely tight, sportclimbing shoes were hurting my broken toe so badly on the first pitch that I climbed the second half barefoot and switched into my comfy running shoes at the first belay. It would have been a pretty nice photo... especially if my partner had understood composition as well as he understood climbing, oh well. I think I'll see whether I can pull some photoshop magic tricks out of my hat and crop myself out of this photo and onto the backdrop of the photo I took of him. It'll be tricky, but the results could be worth it... I'll see.
