this is a great shot Dow, and probably an even greater climb! Really great stuff you're posting. Gettimg me pretty amped to get out and crank hard!
Thanks Dan, I did the Gmoser route on her back in 2003 and had not been on the mountain since....Homage-Spider is truly the route to take if you get a shot....cheers
looks a lot like Dolomite limestone...looks like many fun climbs on there!
mighty fine peice of rock there!
Any easier routes to the top?
Thanks Rick. Counting one just added last year, there are 5 established routes, the Kain Route, which is the original line, would be the less difficult grade, but I have not actually done it...cheers
Damn fine rock. Well suited as POTD for SummitPost. Congrat's, Dow! --mark d.
I don't think it's a perfect pic but I won't vote not to decry it. Probably it's a little bit overexposed and I don't like those branches to the right. They kept the eyes look. Couldn't you avoid them?
It seems far from a perfect pic to me...I believe "climbers" vote on it because they like the objective...in fact I think the many climbing photos I posted of this route are actually much more interesting...I am sure you voted on those eh? I am out there to climb Diego, not take photos....taking pics as we are climbing is quite secondary....we hand a small pocket sized camera off to each other at the belay...I carry enough gear as it is for a climb like that....suppose that is why I have never gained weight the past 25 years....do you have any questions about the climb? or are those branches bugging the hell out of you? cheers
I bet that you weren't climbing in that wood with so many gear at the time the pic was taken. If so you could have leave it on the ground before. I'm not under an obligation to vote on those route photos. Am I? And I won't comment on more photos from you if you don't like them. Neither I'm losing sleep over those branches. I was only suggesting you how to take a better pic but it seems you haven't caught on my critique.
Our approaches are quite extensive here, we carry only the bare essentials...no tripod, no fancy camera, and no time or interest to "photoshop"...what we both know, is that you have zero interest in any of my photos or route pages..so to make a detailed statement about why you are not voting on one to begin with is kind of silly, don't you think? Glad you slept well.
the mountain speaks for itself in this shot!
