Nice shot, Carl.

I like to refer to that type of class 4 as "coney island class 4" because if I was on it, there'd be a good chance my shorts would turn into a chili factory...

OK - not a 14er but still some nice climbing.

Oh, by the way Jim, it seems like a better first rule of climbing would be "Don't forget to look down!"

:lol: That's awesome!

Not to diminish the comedy, but I don't have that problem due mostly to excessive puckering.

Any of those pictures are bad ass. I think I'll stick with the "little ole class 3" stuff though.

Hmmm...so since he is walking across the knife edge wouldn't that make it Class 2 off trail :wink:


I suspect someone has a TR coming out and is looking to build hype. :P
But Class 2 w/exposure is still fun.
Nice hero shot pix everyone. They're the kind of pictures to show your grandkids some day! (If you can remember it was you in the photo.)
