happened to a better photo or a better climber. I'm talking about "Photo of The Week" Radek. Love all your incredible photos of Moonlight.
Congrats,
Marc
p.s. I just read the account of the crazy free solo of the route in 83 minutes. I wonder what this guy is made of!!! And he calls the whole route "Made of lockers."
Amazing.

The image appears to be upside down, as posted. Am I going crazy?

I dunno - maybe you're right. As I figured, something looking straight down would not have a preferred orientation (I could be wrong tho). Thanks for visiting.

AJonesGreat photo!

Nice pic and good job on the climb. If it makes you feel any better, it snowed a foot here on the weekend, and it's still too cold to rock climb. Just something to think about if you feel like complaining about the heat. By the way, I love the angle of the photo - it better conveys the steepness of the climb.

Hi Aaron - thank you very much for the kind word. I'm not complaining about warmth...the 3+ days of rain in Yosemite was a pain in the ass though :) ...oh well, the PNW weather likes to come with us on many trips. Cheers!
