Time for a new photo thread. It occurred to me that sometimes, climbing action photos capture much less of what it means to climb than photos of the people we climb with. Post em if you got em. I'll get us started...

Here you go. I've heard that on one end of the social spectrum there are people in black tie, eating fine food while being serenaded by strolling violinist. On the other end are dirtbags chomping MREs while being serenaded by ol' dirt-in-eye. I'm not particularly interested in moving up.

Campfire shots seem popular in this thread and this was one of my favorite nights by the fire.

Actually you're right now that I think about it. There is a Marmot Dome in Courtright but it's also known as Spring Dome I think.

My pic is Tuolumne's though.Every time (twice) I get on the route, a storms rolls over from Lembert. Never got past the second pitch.
