With all of the photo threads going these days, I thought I’d share some of my favorite wall climbing images to try to help keep this place on track (but I guess we can’t help ourselves from the OT fun stuff…). Hope you enjoy the images. (Apologies to the dial-up-ers.)

I skipped all three lead bolts on this pitch for fun.

These aren’t the greatest slide scans and I posted these before I knew about adjusting levels in Photoshop.

Wall climbing takes you places you just aren't going to get to, any other way. Though I suspect there are other ways into the infrared spectrum.
thanks!

Good stuff Bryan!
Thanks for posting those...

Are you gonna identify those for us or keep us guessing?

I get the wall itch just looking at those shots.
