The Rectory

The Rectory

Shirley in the Rectory-Castleton saddle during our approach hike to The Priest (barely visible as a separate tower at the far left side of The Rectory). The southern prow of The Rectory (with Fine Jade, III 5.11-) is in the foreground. What a spectacular setting the saddle is (Feb. 5, 2005)!!

Terrific photo!

Radek, this is a great shot. The color, composition, and subject are wonderful. I like the fact that Shirley is in the picture too.

Great shot, stunning country. Of course, it always helps out your pic when you have Shirley in it. : )

it's an honor..

to vote this shot a 4 star, number 20 for you. Your work on The Priest is text book stuff. i just love that name, "The Priest" Are you going back for The Rectory?

Re: it's an honor..


thank you very much for your super-kind remarks!

The Rectory thing will have to wait for us - we'd like to do it via the classic "Fine Jade" line but right now that's way beyond what we're capable of free climbing unfortunately (it's rated .11-)......though there is an easier route to the top (called Empirical Route 5.9 R). Do you have any plans for that tower - I'd love to see more of those things submitted to SP?

Take care and good climbing to you!

Re: Top Notch Photo!!!

thank you very much! I've also been looking thru. you photos & you got some amazing shots. Love the one from E. Butt of Middle CAthedral, think it's this one:

..the zebra-stripped rock is nicely captured. I also noticed you guys bivied up on the solar slab terrace. that must have been pretty cool (esp. sunset/sunrise views).

Re: Top Notch Photo!!!

Thanks. Yes, the bivy on Solar Slab was a good idea. Great way to beat the crowds and you're right... an amazing sunrise!
