Alright...these are all just teasers...but i can blow all the pics in one sitting.

This one kinda explains itself. although at the time i took this...i didn't know i would dislocate my shoulder 3 days later on Durrance in the 3rd pitch. Wouldn't you know it...the damn thing relocated by itself about 10 minutes later. I still summited...but damn that was exhausting. didn't drive 3000 miles to not get on top of that bastard again....long story.

Oops...i meant to say i CAN'T just blow through all the pics. Oh and that last one was from this past summer...august sometime.

Next is from J-tree early this January. Everyone had pretty much already posted everything that i climbed. so here is one that i found amusing...Barker Dam. Be careful of the deep end.

Do you still have to wait a couple of hours after a meal before your Mom will let you go in?

Alright...you twisted my arm...one more. This is from the same trip over this past christmas break. Went to Hawaii before J-tree for my big bro's wedding...sweet.

On Oahu, near Kaneohe (the east side of the island) there are these 2000' vegetated cliffs...always rains on that side. Huge landslide...millions of years ago...big geology lesson...not gonna get into it. Anyways...Coast guard ran this relay station over the mountains between Kaneohe MC base and Pearl Harbor. So they built this radar station at the top of the mountains (time before satellites). So they built a 4000+ metal step staircase going up the cliffs to get to them....dubbed...the Stairway to Heaven.

Station has been out of use for decades...and the stairs are falling apart in sections. But its a fun little adventure...especially at the vertical sections. Here's a sample of a not-so scary section.

Yeah, I think the upper pitch is 5.9 and the lower pitch is 5.7. That slippery polish and my aching feet made me weanie out of leading it!

The two 10s to the left are excellent to TR.

You got me jonezing for the valley again!

I got to do some of the more popular routes in the Valley this last fall, including Royal Arches. It was a blast, and of course quite different. Friction, jamming, pendulums, chimneys. Lots of fun. Rated 5.7,A1 or 5.9. I did it with a fever and still loved it. The scariest part is the walk down Washington's gully with darkness moving in fast and some pretty intricate route finding down incredibly loose, dangerous terrain.Thankful to have carried one of those little LED lights on the back of my harness or it would have been a long night on the rim in a t-shirt when it went below freezing. Depending on how little pro you need or your desire to simul-climb, you can do the 1500 feet of climb in a few hours but can otherwise easily take all day.
The Jamcrack, Bishops Terrace, Snake Dike, Commitment, Nutcracker, and a bunch I don't remember are awesome routes.

Since not all of these are climbing pics, here's on from the top of the main pyramid at Chitzen Itza, in Mexico.

My friend Scott on the lower Jamapa Glacier. Look closely over his shoulder (on the left) and you'll see the faint outline of Popo, and the volcanic ash plume extending from it, heading left in the picture as it gets caught in the jet stream. It was an amazing site, and looked much closer in person.
