PAROFESI don't know about other SP'ers


Voted 10/10

But i like the idea very much!
I think it is great to separate the albuns by years because otherwise one album can get too big, and pictures can get lost in time...
I did myself another album 15 minutes ago thinking probably the same thing you while doing he album.
Great job buddy!
I'd vote 11% but it only goes up to 10% ahahahhahaha

Thanks Paulo! There were some real awesome shots I was tempted to include from earlier years but you're right, it needs to be limited in some way.

yatsekGood idea

But watching from where I live, half of your US scrambling seems like crumbling actually. :-) I wonder if you could have a look at the last six posts here on page 26 and give your opinion, especially on the YDS Class 4 against 5.x problem.

I wondered if such a discussion would be brought up. It's certainly an interesting question. Often Class 4 seems indistinguishable from low fifth class.

Here's my opinion on the matter. The YDS and UIAA rating scales may give a good definition of what is what but when it comes to the actual hands-on experience it seems that ratings are largely a matter of personal opinion. When I get a rating for a climb I'm planning, I take into consideration who gave the rating and what is their experience level.

There are other factors to be considered like the presence of loose rock or a dusting of snow. Overall, I've pretty much withdrawn from the scrambling argument. I've also learned to take numerical ratings from climbers like Fred Beckey and add one.

MarkDidierNice Concept Album


Voted 10/10

I stumbled across this when I went looking to update my profile pic...and saw that it was in this album. Made me feel pretty good finding a few of my pics included, considering some of the incredible scrambling photos in here!

Nice job and thanks for posting.

I think sometimes un-roped scramble photos are some of the most exciting shots here on Summit Post. You have certainly contributed some good ones yourself. So thank you too.
