Re: Wow...

Thanks, this photo was taken on the diamond of longs peak... a traverse pitch so with only two climbers the best pics are on this pitch. this picture is of me leading,,, my next lead was on pitch 5 where half way up i got caught in a nasty lightning/hail storm.

Re: Sweet1

oh man its a great climb only 7 pitches but you gain 800' just climbing up to broadway ledge, this photo is over 1000' vertical and very near 14,000' over 800' to go and very serious exposure.

A tense pitch

....but masterfully photographed, can even see nimble thronyeens and spare carabiners in a bantered array near the dimly lit foreground. Well done!

Re: A tense pitch

Thanks Joel,, not sure what you mean by thronyeens?? this was really just a lucky shot just happened to be on a great route with a great setting. my friend dmitriy took the photo while i led this pitch.
