Rock Climbing Photos : Trad : first pitch to hell

first pitch to hell

first pitch to hell

First pitch on Demirkazik north wall finishes on a very large ledge. The problem is that with the early sunlight rock pieces start to fall directly to this ledge. Eventhough we climbed this pitch the day before and fixed the rope just to reach the main chimney (it is on the left side of the image), where we can be secure from the falling rocks, we were late. It was really scary. I am on the belay, and Ayhan is cleaning the pitch. Our third, Korhan, is not visible in the picture. The photo credit goes to Baris Akkiris.

10.14.05 Edit: My old slide scans were not so clean. I decided to clean dust, fix color errors, and resubmit them.
