Urban Climber

Urban Climber's weekly dose hit my inbox last night and I was surprised to see... a picture of me!

They're doing a feature on the photography of my good mate Marty Blumen and have a bunch of his choicest (I can say that, he's in NZ) pics featured on their site, eh bro? Marty won the prestigious Grand Prize at the 2008 Banff Mountain Photography Competition for this artistic shot of Rim Lit Climber - taken at Ceuse, France.

Incidentally, the pic above is of me sending Blocage Violent 7b+ (26) at Ceuse. This perfect endurance route is in my all-time top 3.
