Congatulations Jim!

I had to delete all my publisher-quality photography when the cracked down on illegal internet porn.

Glad you have more family-friendly shots.

Congrats Jim. That Dunn-Westbay shot was a classic. Other than the normal photo skills of setting up a shot to have the right elements, you have the climber unaware of your existence and a total innocent shot. I think that is the purest and best kind of climbing photo. Not to mention you captured a monumental event on one of the best walls in the World. Way to go! You deserve that one!

Tiffany, it was great meeting and climbing with you and Steve. Thanks so much for the complements. Mike and I thought it was so cool seeing a husband-wife team having such a great time together on one of the harder peaks. Congrats!

Damn Jim, you climb so fast I figured it was all motion picture!

Congrats on getting published; you definitely deserve it!
