If anyone would be willing to share some wall shots (from anywhere)? I would love to see them???
Here's one from Half Dome Direct. (This is a great route!!!)

Big Wall Heaven exists in an individual's imagination during their time of imagining.

Photos taken, always have the eye of the moment, even when its just 5.11 as a free climb.

Once there were Dragons, now there is a really good time, free climbing something not so bad !

Wayne, the only thing i can think of that traverses that direction is the seagull? (that's a longshot of a guess)
