Grace and poise?

Adam effortlessly moves upwards. Gritstone has lots of rounded bits, so a good surface area of, well, skin, helps keep you on the rock. Or not.....


By the way, this is Kirkus's Corner, Stanage, England, E1 5b

    great shot.
  • geo3pea 8y

    Nice, very effective
  • slack---line 8y

    What routes is this? Its obviously at Stanage, and from the position looks like it might be The Tippler?

    btw feel free to add it to the Grit pool.

    Edit - Have just looked at the others in the sequence and its Kirkus's Corner.

    Excellent photo.

    Happy to double the numbers in the grit group, Neil!

    Thanks for the comments, guys. The climber of Bright Orange Muppet. No, seriously..........

    Yay I'm famous! Thanks Anne, you've made me look like I'm competent :-)

    The route is Kirkus Corner, just right of Flying Buttress Direct. Don't be fooled by the dangling ropes, there's a good nut just by my foot.
  • StripeyAnne 8y

    Adam - you ARE competent!
  • Eleventh Earl 8y

    This made me say 'wow' aloud when I saw it. SO I had to press the star button.
  • StripeyAnne 8y

    Well thanks very much, Sticky. Adam said 'wow', I said 'aghhh this is toooo hard!!!!'

    And for any non-climbers reading Adam's comment, a nut is a piece of climbing equipment. Just in case you're wondering.........

    I think this is a really excellent "action" shot :-)
  • StripeyAnne 8y

    Thanks, David
  • John 8y

    This is a really dramatic image Anne, nice one!
    Being able to compose/take photos whilst climbing must take some steady nerves, what's the secret? ;-)
  • StripeyAnne 8y

    Thanks, John. You give me too much credit. I clambered up the next (easy) route so it wasn't really that gnarly!
  • Phil Winterbourne 7y

    A perfect and classic climbing shot. Good stuff.
