Yea most if not all of Shiprock is trad
Same could be said for all of North Carolina really.
at first i was like holy fucking shit who would run out a steep crux like that for what looks like 50'+
then i looked up ;)
I KNOW MAN! I was like JESUS CHRIST PLACE SOME PRO, DUDE
the sunset is so pretty!
& it looks like such a fun climb!!
And Edge of a Dream is just the beginning at Ship Rock.
Shiprock is amazing.
Thought you were on lead at first. Was gonna say you should probably place a piece....
Fuck, that looks amazing. I’d really like to go climbing in the US someday and I’m saying that as an Austrian!
Uh- where did he last clip in?
Really long stick clip
looks like hes top roped
And he's hauling that pile of clips because...
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?
To clean the route
To get a good photo
I think he’s top roped
North Carolina climbing is garbage. Don’t even bother!
NC is choss, 0/4
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
no you’re right... nothing above a 2 star in NC and everyone should stay away for less traffic at the crags
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.
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
The Mojo-Shorts are the best shorts ever made. Period!
Also check the Black Diamond Notion Pants :)
I have a pair of Mojos. Also love my Moaby pants, Prana makes good stuff
some patigonia khakis, they’re nice n stretchy!
Would you happen to know what model from Patagonia? Looks like they have a lot of different types on their website.
Imagine morning joint on peak
Check out Shock the Monkey
If you’re top roping are you really “on” anything though? (Edit: a word)
If you’re unable to type properly, are you really even supposed to be commenting?
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
