    Went down to RMNP for a couple days. We climbed at Lumpy Ridge and did my first technical alpine climb on the Sharkstooth.

    [QUOTE=zartagen;4232323]I'm sure there's a few climbers out there. Trad, sport, alpine, ice, post 'em up!

    Some to start:





    There is something about a well placed number 3 camalot that makes one feel all is right in the universe. Yours look too shiny and new, get out there and climb.

    Hit the Southwest Ridge of Symmetry Spire yesterday. Got a little off-route on the last pitch and learned, after looking at the guidebook, that we ended up doing a 5.9 variation of the Direct South Face for that last stretch. Click image for larger version.

    I have to agree, #3s are kickass. But don't worry, that photo was taken a whole 5 months ago. I've been climbing 1-3 times a week since then; now they look a lot better (worse?). They've even seen some falls.

    Anyway, here's more stoke, Instagram quality:

    I've heard that's a good route, always passed it by to go do the high peaks.

    Edit: Just saw the symmetry spire post ^^^. Great climb with a "small" Teton approach.

    The rock on Disappointment is really good. Very little loose stuff when compared with Symmetry Spire. The approach to the Spire isn't bad, it's the descent that seems to just go on forever.

    Not my pics, but a few from a recent trip to Rock Creek Canyon and then Bear Creek Spire. Bear Creek Spire is a classic Sierra alpine climb. 7-8 pitches up to 5.8 on super nice white granite with tiny summit.

    Went on a trip to Penitente Canyon for Labor Day weekend. It's a very unique place.

    The canyon used to be inhabited by priests in the late 1800s and they painted the virgin mary on the wall.


    This was one of my hardest leads I've done. It was almost purely stemming with the occasional tiny pocket or edge.

    Took a trip to WV last week for some whitewater and climbing





    This one is on a route called Arachnophobia, I used a nice long stick to clear out the spider webs. I still had to shoo away some spiders up higher.

    Favorite from a few weeks back. Camped right next to this crag and the easy route turned out to be a fun pitch, nice free rap off too. CoR, ID

    Ha, ha... I once heard of a guy who stuck his hand in a nest of baby rattlesnakes while climbing... I'll take the spiders!

    How would climbing mags feel about having a general climbing/hiking/camping/backpacking subforum? Know that's a wide swath of activities, but seems like there's enough people looking to post about each of those activities, but less about each of those activities individually. Been thinking it'd be a good idea, and combine Summits & Hook-ups into one subforum so people don't get confused.

    It's been a long time from climbing for me. This is from my last major route, a run up Crestone Needle with a couple of guys who'd never done a technical 14'er. Miss it.

    Here's my postcard photo of bear creek. Certainly one of the best pieces of granite man can find.



    Summit is tiny and beautifully exposed. Gives you that first buzz feeling of air under your ass, first beer / cigarette.
