The King Swing - Barely made it!

Average Rating = 3.12/5 The King Swing - Barely made it!

Aaron Reite successfully pulls off the King Swing pendulum on The Nose. He took six or seven swings total, lowering out a little more between each one. When he finally did get it, he just barely got his arms around the arete, then clawed his way around to the second crack. (Note that this is the "Emperor Swing" variation. The old piton in the first crack was gone, and we thought this would be more "fun" than relying on a few tiny brass offsets.) The photos were taken with a 35mm SLR attached to a spotting scope, and were stitched together by me, with minimal photoshoppage. You can see more at will.is-a-geek.org

The King Swing - First Attempts

Average Rating = 3.33/5 The King Swing - First Attempts

Aaron Reite attempts the King Swing pendulum on The Nose. After several swings, he finds that he must lower out even further before he can get around the arete to the second crack. (Note that this is the "Emperor Swing" variation. The old piton in the first crack was gone, and we thought this would be more "fun" than relying on a few tiny brass offsets.)

My favorite butt shot

Average Rating = 2.50/5 My favorite butt shot

Okay, so I know it's a butt-shot, and it's not even in perfect focus, but it's my favorite butt-shot. For one thing, it's a shot of my favorite butt: my own (maybe someday the back side of some deserving young lady will earn that title, but for now, my own toosh will have to do.) But more importantly, this is the only photo to ever exist of my first trad lead. The route is Room to Shroom (5.9) in Joshua Tree. It's an excellent route, though the hike in is a major pain.

Silhouette of the Aiguille

Average Rating = 3.75/5 Silhouette of the Aiguille

A scrawny figure perches on the Aiguille de Joshua Tree just as the sun sets. A tiny crescent moon is revealed in the awaiting night.
