Michael Reardon soloing Romantic Warrior at the Needles, CA

This is Michael Reardon soloing the second crux pitch of Romantic Warrior (V 5.12) at the Needles, CA. I'm not sure there is much more to say. Tremendous exposure with stout ratings and for the first time in my life, I told Michael that I needed to get in my own eight-foot eggshell, and that was while on the rope!

Strange yellow black striped rocks in the back.

Really Beautiful!

What a beautiful picture...Just him and the rock..Love his blonde hair shining in the sun and the contrast with his red shirt. It is a stunning picture. Thank you for sharing it here!

Did you take this photo?

It's a great one. Reminds me of one I saw in Climbing. Seemed like a great guy & climber. RIP, Michael Reardon.

What a loss...

Awesome shot, but it makes me sad to know he is gone. Such a talented man, and a loss to the climbing community. RIP
