Less Words, More Pictures

Corey Nauman working on his space walk. Muir Wall (El Cap)
        I figure that most people just like to see photography anyway, so I decided to make a post of all pictures. Obtaining quality climbing photos is hard work, as the best ones are usually shot from the top down. Logistically this proves difficult. Usually your proudest or most significant climbing moments are left to memories. Your glory is honest, shared with few people.. When moving fast and light, like on our one day ascent of halfdome, there is rarely room or time for personal photography. Here are a few that we  have managed to collect this summer. Thanks to Shane, Corey, Jerome, Alfredo and anyone else who held the camera.  (Please click each one for a full size image)
