wow a cool trad pic!!

Post by andrew p » Fri Feb 17, 2012 7:16 am

Wow this is the best trad pic I have seen in ages. The timing just perfect going for the jug and the R foot smear and strain on that slopey R hand make the shot. Who is it by and more details about the climb anyone? Another new 25 I think I read..this is top stuff, would be great to get an interview or something with Richard, its great to hear about new routes of this standard. Respect. Andrew

Thanks for the great comments all!

An afternoon on the Ledge with two of the country's most active new-routers, Richard and Joe, is bound to send one home with at least one decent shot :) More to come.

Anybody taller than 1.63cm is not allowed to grade a climb on Sandstone between rails. If they do, I shall take them to Yosemite and burn them off on cracks
