I like this one, I think it captures the moment well, and has cool light.

This place needs no caption. One wouldn't fit, anyway.

I like this pic I took last week.

Jimi's "Crosstown Traffic" comes to mind. Grover and Reagan passing eachother, one going left, one going right, one goin up, one going down. Ha, only on El Cap.

(*Hint* to Metolius catalog editor.)
This shot should definitely be in the next issue !

Edit: I just realized while looking through this thread again, where this is, Duh!
         Due to zero camping availability a few years ago, my son and I hung our Metolius ledge under an overhang
         on the water-side of Malamute where we lived for a little over a week. Throw in a little BC forest fire smoke,
         and the evening sunsets over the ocean, had us convinced that we had the best seats in the house!

not exactly bigwallish, but i did use a hook as a back up on the first bolt placement. weakmo, for sure, but it felt good to get something done. 180' ish. Pretty easy though. FA Munge and Dave W.
