The Old Master

At last, a decent run of weather, this is from our climbing club's meet last night, at around sunset. The bloke at the bottom is the club president passing on some pearls of wisdom to Sam, who is on only her 2nd outdoor climb.

Re: The Old Master

Such as - "don't let go" or "you got up there - now lets see you get down".

Nice shot (though I'd crop a bit from the lhs to make a diagonal).

Re: The Old Master

Hi John,

A great shot that tells the story; I think we could have guessed the scenario!

The expression in Sam's eyes says it all, a mixture of fear, concentration and determination. It's about that point that "sewing machine leg" syndrome sets in, isn't it?

Re: The Old Master

Cheers gents

Nick - cropped version:

I should have asked him to move a bit to the left to make a better diagonal


John -sounds like you've been there Also known as Elvis Leg.

And in a bit, Oh and you should have asked the sun to shine

Still a nice shot - I do hope you give Sam a copy

Re: The Old Master

Being awkward I prefer uncropped as the space gives the climber that bit more of the exposed feeling she looks like she was experiencing....

Looks like carboniferous gritstone to me ... nasty stuff to slip on !

Lovely picture

Regards
Andy

I agree really, I posted the crop to see what people thought. The diagonal thing is right though, I reckon it'd have been better with the aad gadgie further to the left.

Pretty much spot on Andy, Carboniferous Sandstone of the very best quality, course enough to be called grit. Just not high enough, but high enough for "grit rash"
