Photo of the week

I'm not usually one to photoshop much, but I was feeling creative and had this recent picture that I wanted to spice up. The picture of is of my friend Artec on his first 5.11 trad lead. The climb is the prow at Paradise Forks, AZ. The prow is probably one of my favorite 5.11- crack climbs. It starts with an offwidth, then goes to fingers, to ringlocks, to thin hands. For this photo I rigged a fixed line off a tree at the lip and rapped slightly over the lip. He went much quicker than I expected and was just pulling the crux bulge in time for me to take this shot!
