Sure we like climbing pics. In addition to the threads that RG mentioned, consider also the discussions surrounding the resale of Dick Dumais’ Gunks photo book and its recent reissue.

These photos have given me a chance to consider a couple of potential on-sights, in a visually complementary way to reading new route descriptions in the Gray Dick. Those shots of Beatle Brow Bulge and Stannard’s Roof are compelling. Others, like the Trapped like a Rat photo, show me that I can walk past a route countless times, yet I don’t see it like I did that one time I led it and when trying to compare that memory to the immediate features captured in a still.

Bring out some more!

Looks too bright to be Bonnie's Roof, I guess. Hmm... I suspect I haven't done this one.

Regarding this thread - the pics inspired me to check out a bunch of climbs I never would have thought about otherwise - very cool!

OK, was this picture taken this past Saturday? Looks like the same woman wearing that shirt that we shared the High E ledge with. ;-)

I'll guess that's Ursula.
(Do I have the name right? It's the 5.8 in the shallow corner to the right of Bonnie's.)

Ah ha. I had the climb right, but the wrong name.
