I thought to my self: I know this picture already! And yes it is nearly the "Bivy far from the Shire". The here used "extended" panorama format with more "info" on the right side makes it perfect in views of framing and the blinking sun is also a great addendum :-).

H.S.

P.S. I use Panorama Studio for stitching (it is not for free).

I just upgraded to a 27" monitor with an HD cartridge and this was the first picture I looked at.....All I can say is WOW ! I know I've said thank you before, but I'll say it again. Keep them coming my friend. Upload more than you normally would to make up for the ones that I'm not due to lack geographical proximity. Thanks, Joel

A wonderful capture of height, depth and distance, giving me the impression that I'm on the climb myself!

Best wishes from beamish boy

beamish boy,

I am pleased that you like it.

Going through your photos I see that you climb also!

Hi Randy. Thanks very much for visiting my gallery. I'll repay your visit by voting for this fine photo. Yes. In my younger years I climbed many a mountain in Europe, often combined with trekking through them. Best wishes from beamish boy - IRELAND

Randy, this is a great shot - did you bivy up there?

Randy T (Randylikest… on May 13, 2010

Jim Dockery,

Yes, we made a bivy on the rock to the right. Nice place for photos! I was ready to climb out with flashlight, however as climbs go, what happens and what is planed sometimes differ!

On a side note, I do admire your photos from Klawatti. I commented before, and it is worth mentioning again!

wow, we dont have any rocks to climb in hawaii, just mud... but this looks like something i want to do when i move to seattle, is there a climbing club that goes on climbs like this?

Randy T (Randylikest… on May 15, 2010

PhotoBombOahu,

There are 2 ways to do get into climbing. Either join a climbing club, or climber with an experienced climber that you know well. I would recommend the later. There are climbing rocks and gyms where there is no shortage of talented climbers. I have a very strong bias this way; however I also know others that are into clubbing. It really depends on you. I hope that helps.

Hell of a place to sleep. Ya done good.

PhotoBombOahu, the Seattle Mountaineers is one of the largest hiking/climbing clubs in the US. They have all the classes & organized climbs you could want. The drawback is that size forces a huge bureaucracy. Great publishing company, though. I'd recommend them as fallback if you can't find a smaller, local club. Check the forums (fora?) at colleges and sites like SummitPost or CascadeClimbers.

Wow! I was right about the views Randy. I've already commented on this great photo, one of my favourites of yours. Cheers - Jim

Beamish boy,

  • Jim, This was a very senic place. I also had a lot of time to stare at Overcoat peak; Climbing Junkie Story #8 and to consider the West Face.
  • I am having a lot of fun in the Addictive Climbing Stories Group. I have only read half of the accounts and it is my favorite group. Most groups don't get to have as much fun as we are having.

Buts_YV,

  • Thank you for your comments and return visit. We stayed the night on a small ledge waiting for the sun to warm us again. It did.
