Torre Venezia

Shirley getting used to the idea of rapping off of single ring bolts on the north face of Torre Venezia....a fashion trend we'd see quite a bit on European routes (August 2008).

~smiling again?

Hey, somebody has to ask the tough questions:

Is Shirley ALWAYS smiling? (She has to make up for the perpetual "frown" that Blondie is
always wearing, right???)

This photo makes me thirsty for some Tai
Ice Tea! Please make mine "on the rocks!"

Outstanding photo! -Larry :)

Re: ~smiling again?

Thank you very much Larry. Yeah, out of the 3 of us, Blondie is certainly the most cerebral!

Re: ~smiling again?

That is a "10" smile. The highest achievement in the smile competition category. Hey, great trip, great pics and of course, a great smile.

The fun of climbing :)

You both really enjoy yer climbing, good for ye!
Yeah abseiling off a single bolt's quite normal here... Off a single peg I abseiled last summer backing off from a solo self-belaying attempt of a new route in Albania, lack of time and partner stopped me... but that's another story, will post a TR soon.
One hell of a great climbing couple you are, all the best to both of you!
