Climbing Photography

Hilleberg Atlas

Climbing and photography go together like coffee and cream. Whether it's of the highest Himalayan peaks or the lowest Hueco lowballs, we love the imagery that transports us back to the scene of the climb. It's a discipline steeped in history, too, peopled by pilots and inventors and former custom auto-shop owners with more than a few FAs to their names. IAIpenglow from German Alpengl hen is usually misunderstood. Although we often use the term to describe rosy sunrise or sunset light on alpine...

Allucinogen Wall

Tague Your Time

These two photos are of Ryan Nelson working the first free ascent of the Hallucinogen Wall, a VI 5.11 A5 put up in 1980 that went all-free at 5.13 plus some dry-tooling. Working the upper sections headpoint-style in 2004, Jared Ogden and Nelson freed multiple pitches of 5.13 face climbing, with massive runouts above aid mank, often on dubious thin edges. On the 13 th pitch, a 50-foot bolt ladder, they were getting totally shut down. Over the winter, however, the Durango pair had climbed some...
