Oh man...the Torres (Medium) picture is incredible. It's got to be the picture with the most "WHAM" that I've ever seen in my life.

What can be told about it? Photographer? Is this in Chile? And please tell me that there is a high-res somewhere...

I thought it was going to be some shitty choss pic, and that you were being sarcastic, but DAMN!
what an awesome picture! doesn't follow any of the rules or whatever, but really captures it.

Those are the Towers of Paine in Chilean Patagonia.

The first picture was taken while climbing the west face of the north tower (the one shown on the right in the third pic).

The second picture, which was taken by a Chilean climber who just happened to be rappelling off of the central tower at the right time, shows my partner and I summiting the north torre after 17 hours of climbing from an advanced BC.

The last picture, Torres (medium) came from the internet and was a big part of the inspiration for the two month expedition.

Yes, there is a high res version. I'll see if I can find it...

Ha!

If I close my eyes and picture it, Clausti is the one wearing the pants in that family. I can see it clearly now...she's on the couch watching TV, with four fingers to the third knuckle down the front of her jeans and Cammycakes is in the kitchen, barefoot and wearing his favorite pair of boxers. The cute ones with the yellow daisy print.
