The tragedy of Chris's ace gallery is that the only images prompting loads of (admittedly justified) jaw-dropped comments are about bloody landscapes. Are there any climberrs out there?
So here's Tim heading up Soulslinger again, fingers blown but still pulling down hard as the imminent storm brings our time at the Buttermilk to an end. One last try eh Tim?

Always one more try, always.

Excellent photo.. possibly the best shot of Soulslinger I've seen..
interesting angle too.. the space to the right gives the boulder more prominence.. the climber looks tiny too, espcially with that amazing sky..
oh yeah, three star problem aswell..

I wish - I'm blaming the heat, and the fact it was my 20th day on or something like that, but most of all I'll blame my weakness....

A great climbing shot, a great landscape shot - combined to the detriment of neither. Have a 5*!

You know when a picture is good when it makes you want to get straight back in to bed so that you can dream that you're on the pictured problem!
