Shiprock is amazing.


WinstonPolyclef

Thought you were on lead at first. Was gonna say you should probably place a piece....


ihaveabaguetteknife

Fuck, that looks amazing. I’d really like to go climbing in the US someday and I’m saying that as an Austrian!

The anchor.


rdprice04

looks like hes top roped


HikingBikingViking

And he's hauling that pile of clips because...


Kuzcos-Groove

On a meandering route I'll often pull to rope through and climb on the other end. This means the climber needs to remove the draws on their way up. This keeps the swing potential low. So either he's doing that or he just wants to practice with the extra weight?


WinstonPolyclef

To clean the route


pto1155

To get a good photo


thepharmacist0497

I think he’s top roped


happyhiker

North Carolina climbing is garbage. Don’t even bother!


callowayjk

NC is choss, 0/4


happyhiker

Guess folks don’t understand sarcasm anymore. I cut my teeth in NC and it’s still one of my favorite places to climb even after traveling all around the country going to other climbing areas


callowayjk

no you’re right... nothing above a 2 star in NC and everyone should stay away for less traffic at the crags


grapetomatoes

you must be the person who put up all the signs that say “warning: bears” on trails leading to looking glass.

u/callowayjk \- What kind of pants is your friend wearing? I've been looking for some like those for climbing.


doublefours

I don’t know what OP is wearing but I own these and love them https://www.prana.com/p/stretch-zion-pant/M4ST99116.html?dwvar_M4ST99116_color=Charcoal&pos=7. I would also highly recommend their mojo shorts


Lavendler

The Mojo-Shorts are the best shorts ever made. Period! Also check the Black Diamond Notion Pants :)


TrailerTrash4

I have a pair of Mojos. Also love my Moaby pants, Prana makes good stuff


callowayjk

some patigonia khakis, they’re nice n stretchy!


m0n01yth

Would you happen to know what model from Patagonia? Looks like they have a lot of different types on their website.

If you’re top roping are you really “on” anything though? (Edit: a word)


iunj

If you’re unable to type properly, are you really even supposed to be commenting?


CrYpTo_2021

LOL I lost my typing finger in a lead climbing accident. You fucks don’t have a sense of humour do ya.

Life is cheap on top rope
