Without Ropes


Photo Information
This fellow has just climbed a sheer rock face with no ropes or any other safety device; rather him than me! I was interested in the negative space in this image as well the man and what he was doing.

Hit a home run here, especially the space foot to belly. To get your POV I'd be wearing safety harness, or two -- V V nice Tony ps - you say no ropes, etc.- why would someone want to do that?

Love the photo, can't understand anyone wanting to endanger themselves like the climber.

Yes George in jeans! I was amazed too! The shot doesn't tell the whole story, he was doing some amazing things on the way up and that rock face was a long way off the ground. It made me shudder watching him.

I was right on the edge of a rocky ledge, sitting down of course! I like to get as close as possible to get the best angles and this often involves me doing some things that my wife thinks are a bit silly, but I'm usually quite careful!
