AOR, you're right.

Thanks very much crackers and dalgard. I got lucky with this, as I was on Grim-ace when this climber was on Shockley's, so I moved over a bit and built an anchor for photos. I will post a few more, as they are some of my favorites.

Her name is Crystal. It was her first time climbing in Gunks. She and her partner, Derek, are from Gloversville. I gave them my email but I never heard from them. If anyone knows them, please ask them to send me a message, as I have about 30 shots of them and I don't think they've seen them yet.

She really struggled to get over that roof, but she never stopped laughing about it. I wish I had that kind of attitude.

It helps not to be leading of course...

Once again, people climbing while wearing rings.
I'd guess they've never seen a ring avulsion (aka degloving) injury...or had to actually deal with one.
(Google if you need to. Beware, the images can be gross.)

WOW, that's the same EXACT thought I had! Nasty, nasty injury potential.

There's a doctor at my gym who climbs with his wedding ring on. Doesn't seem to bother him.

That picture of her laughing up into the camera (post 31699) is fantastic also. You should send that and the first one of Shockley's to a mag somewhere. Those are what climbing pictures should be - not ripped, shirtless people on routes I'll never climb.
