Joe,

Your pictures are definitely a cut above. What kind of camera were you using? It seems like my desert pictures always look washed out, but I'm just a point and shoot kind of photographer with a canon powershot sd450. Any good photog advice?

Thanks.

That was a FANTASTIC TR!

Nice work getting all that climbing in and not losing the motivation to take such crisp, wonderful pictures. I really enjoyed it.

WOW! I must certainly add my compliments to the report and pictures, both a big part what makes this forum great.

And it did not hurt that I will be landing in Salt Lake City on May 19th to climb there. My rope gun for this trip has climbed several of these routes and wants to get back to them. Likely, I'll lead a couple of pitches but mostly following. Never the less, I was already super charged about the upcoming trip but now even more so.

Thanks.

Loved it. Loved it!

That first photo is great. Took me minutes of sustained thought and frowning at the screen to figure out what was going on there with the shadow.

really liked the pics, and the write up.
I climbed the Kor-Ingalls route back in '96 because it is a "classic". probably wouldn't climb it again

For you photo people - I finally made the switch to all digital this year, although I still shoot the occasional roll of Velvia left over in my fridge. I drug a Canon digital SLR with a couple lenses up a couple of the climbs - I've got a nice 10-20mm for the wide angle shots. Otherwise I've got a great little Nikon point and shoot digital that seems to take pretty good shots. My advice for washed-out or marginal shots from a point-and-shoot? A little post image processing goes a long way.

I can't believe how awesome these pics are. I'm sitting in bed, 7:30am, I've spent every other week in Hamburg, Germany, which is FLAT, btw, and then I get THESE STELLAR pics, of STELLAR climbs ... makes me want to CRY. Can anybody hear me ? I NEED TO CLIMB ... THERE.

Thanks for getting me totally pumped for climbing season (this horrible schedule ends mid May)

Woo Hoo !

And how did you solo Moonlight so fast?

That's a lot of towers for one trip! Most people climb one thing at the Fisher's and head on home feelin' pretty good.
You two crank!
