Orson Welles Wall, Cape Verde - Mars, Victoria Crater. 5.23 (mds) add three decimal points for space suit. Bring plenty of water. Access: <a href='http://www.nasa.gov' target='_blank' rel='nofollow' >www.nasa.gov</a> <br />Descent: Rap the route
When I try to explain rock climbing to non climbers I always get the same questions and comments; ďYouíre insane, that what Tom Cruise did, you must have a death wishĒ etc. <br /> <br />Nothing could be farther from the truth of course. <br />I could drone on for hours about what I personally get from rock climbing but this image sums it up much better; about 250 feet above the car and with the cell phone turned off, Iím sitting out in the warm sunshine of a late November afternoon enjoying a snack without a care in the world. <br /> <br />This is why I rock climb. Itís not about cheating death or any other macho bullshit, itís about getting out of the house and enjoying some fresh air, and thatís it. <br /> <br />Your experience may differ. <br /> <br />Welcome to your public lands, now go outside! <br /> <br />10 frame HDR from the Powershot running chdk

Curtis S. at the base of Fly From Soup to Nuts 5.9+, Moderate Mecca, Red Rocks. <br />After getting cocky on his first trad lead on Chicken Gumbo 5.6 I put him on something a bit more substantial.  <br />Neither of us could pull the hard 5.9 this day however. Wah. <br /> <br />A heavily tweaked 9 frame HDR from the Canon powershot G9 running the CHDK crack.
