Hanging out under the giant roof. Desert Reality 5.11c

Looking lost after my glasses fall 500 feet to the ground.
Finished up the climb, but my partner led the rest. Unimpeachable Groping 5.10b, 8 pitches.

Leading a 5.11b sport route at the Stratocaster wall.

Toproping some 11a

This was a nice 10a at the brass wall

A climber on Eagle Dance. This was taken while Josh and I were climbing Levitation 29. The Eagle wall is perched way up high in the back of Oak Creek Canyon. It has beautiful rock, amazing views, hosts a slew of classic routes, and is a pain in the ass to hike to.

Josh workin hard to fight the pump just after the 11c crux on Levitation 29. Look at the intensity in his face. 5.11c is near my limit, but the numerous bolts on the route make it seem much easier, at least psychologically

Josh reaches the top of the over-hyped Chrimson Chrysalis, 5.8, still beautiful, though I wouldn't climb it again.


You can really get a sense of the scale of the place with these two photos

The finishing moves on Triassic Sands, 5.10b, one of my favorite climbs in Red Rocks.

The beautiful corner of Dark Shadows, 5.8.
