this is in the German Alps, on a 5.9 route about 5 pitches up, look what someone back in 1921 bolted to the wall, a dang bike. Those whacky Bavarians. My first climbing shoes, In the old Galibier Super Guides

I remember climbing with a pair of Super Guides long ago and those boots could stand on dimes for ever. Almost made it feel like aid.
Cool pics

Well TradHog,
Thanks all kindly like for the compliments.
As my name is "Roy", that goes a ways to fit the bill too...

When out your way, I'm definitely a "Hope-er"
In Cyberspace I'm a "Poseur".

In Colorado, on the Western side of the Rockies(as in the "Western Slope"), folks are often called "Slopers".

On the Eastern side, or the "Front Range" (Boulder in particular), we would be called "Dopers".

'Nuff Said.

Havin' a Sit On Molas Pass,
Just South of Silverton and North of Durango.
Springboard for the San Juans:

The San Juans are loaded with a huge array of rubble strewn peaks and lots of remote wilderness; some good rock can be found, but it is typically shattered...
