Trip on Guppie (5.12a)

Average Rating = 3.40/5 Trip on Guppie (5.12a)

Guppie (5.12a) is the rightmost climb in the Surf Bowls in Potrero Chico.
It's overhanging and sustained but most of the holds are fairly big. I love this climb.

Pete on Crankenstein

Average Rating = 2.67/5 Pete on Crankenstein

This is Pete part way up Crankenstein. One of the best climbers and belayers in the area.
Crankenstein has always been rated at 11d. It's slightly overhanging and sustained.
However, because it's such a great climb, it often gets downrated by all the Austinites who have it wired.

Ropeswing on Pedernales at Reimers

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Ropeswing on Pedernales at Reimers

Trip doing a flip off the ropeswing after climbing. It may not be a climbing photo, but there's no better way to cool down after climbing in the Texas heat.
Beta: Stand on the tree roots to make the rope carry you out left to deep water (it's shallow if you go straight out).

Trip soloing Rope Eater

Average Rating = 3.81/5 Trip soloing Rope Eater

This photo illustrates the hands-free knee bar just before the crux of Rope Eater (5.10x). The climb starts with 10-15ft of horizontal jamming up to this kneebar. The crux involves making the transition to vertical crack above. Despite the potential death fall, the entire second half is easy 5.7 jamming. Yeah, I'm wearing a harness because I took the time to place gear on the previous climb. [ photo from TripL.com ]

Darryl on Liposuction (5.12a)

Average Rating = 3.17/5 Darryl on Liposuction (5.12a)

Darryl has this 5.12a climb so wired that he has been known to solo the climb when he's not running laps on it. This is one of the 'must-do' climbs at Reimer's Ranch. [ photo from TripL.com ]

Paula - Motavision? - Potrero Chico, MX

Average Rating = 2.60/5 Paula - Motavision? - Potrero Chico, MX

Paula is climbing a route on the Mota Wall somewhere near Motavision. I'm guessing it was either Matavation or Fat Boy Slim because I was on the neighboring route and they were probably around the same grade (easy 11/ hard 10). Year 2000 ? [ higher res photo on TripL.com ]

Valeria spins a web on 'Peewees Big Adventure' (5.12a)

Average Rating = 3.33/5 Valeria spins a web on 'Peewees Big Adventure' (5.12a)

Valeria spins a cool web on 5.12a 'Peewees Big Adventure'. After hanging for a superhuman amount of time and trying several variations on the crux, Valeria grabs the "illegal metal hold" to avoid a big swing. She finished the route after popping back out of the rope. [ from TripL.com ]

Hernan - swingin' on Peewees B.A. (5.12a)

Average Rating = 3.57/5 Hernan - swingin' on Peewees B.A. (5.12a)

Hernan on 'Peewees Big Adventure' (5.12a). This is the roof just before the last clip. It may not be the crux, but it's not an easy section because it's at the end of the route. I took this shot while clipped into 'Through the Looking Glass' nearby. [ higher res copy on TripL.com ]

Trip on Spider Grind 5.11b, 2002

Average Rating = 3.36/5 Trip on Spider Grind 5.11b, 2002

One of the first climbs as you enter Reimer's Ranch. This climb has big holds but is very sustained. IF you have experience with overhanging routes it's also very casual. It was very pumpy for me until I started working overhanging routes a grade or two harder. [ higher res photo on TripL.com ]

Marie's first lead, May 2001

Average Rating = 2.83/5 Marie's first lead, May 2001

I'm not positive this was 'Sleepwalking' (5.9+) but the grade and the location fit (it was definitely between 'El Grifo' and 'Two Pumped Chump'). I know this was her first lead in Mexico and I'm pretty sure it was her first lead ever. She's pretty psyched after clipping the anchors. [ Higher res on TripL.com ]

Traversing the Spires

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Traversing the Spires

This Tyrolean links the classic Eastern Spire route "Off the Notch" with the Western Spire route "Aguja Celo Rey" (both 5.10s). Scott and I were drinking tequila with Curtis and Todd at Homero's 'till 5am one day. We knew we were too drunk to climb difficult stuff, so we set up the Tyrolean around 7am and took pictures. Since we used a 400ft static line, we had enough left to set up the two-pitch rappel off the back (South) side of the spires.[Higher res image on TripL.com ]
