Thanks, Terry, Barry, and Brian.

Brian, this shot was taken with a Canon XSi, 1/640 exposure at f/2.8, ISO 100, 28mm focal length.

The North Massive shots from last Tuesday used a Canon SX110, a medium-sized point-n-shoot with manual control.

Not to brag on my partner but he usually leads with much more than that crecent wrench. He usually has most of his trad rack such as cams and nuts on there too but the photographer used them to make himself safe! I'm sure always lugging that rack has assisted him with strength on those types of routes.

Jim - where the heck were you? You had to be in some comparable position, right? :D


There's a route to the right of it. I TR'd it to the anchors, which was below where I wanted to position for the shoot, so I led trad-style up to the spot I wanted. Had to do a little cleaning- that was the scariest part, since that section had not been climbed and had some loose stuff on it. Other than that, there were three separate crack systems to sew up an anchor so I could focus on the shoot. I then came down a little ways on rap, used a Petzl Shunt to hold the position, tied off, and had to lean back away from the rock.

From the title, I thought this was going to be a thread about Steve Gladbach. Wonder how they're doing today?

On Sunday, I went as far as Summit Lake and then met them at their motel to give them a little beta. They were definitely prepared and pumped to make the climb.
I take the mountain climber's approach to housekeeping - don't look down
