I like #5 as well, just a shame its a bit soft. Out of interest, never head of 'bouldering'. When does 'bouldering' become 'rock climbing', become 'mountaineering'?

Thanks for the feedback.

Yea I liked 5 aswell, but it seams to have gotten softer when I uploaded to Facebook.

Basically Rock climbing is the generic term for climbing up rocks, trad climbing uses ropes and a harness and you clip yourself to the rock as you climb. Bouldering is usually done on smaller rock, closer to the ground. And you aren't tied in, you (usually) have pads to fall in instead. Mountaineering is more a mix of hiking with rock climbing, to get up a mountain.

@torcidas- yea, I know this is bouldering... Just people who don't climb usually don't know what bouldering is.

Good start for a first time. #1 and #5 could have been really good if the timing was a bit different. In #1 if he were looking upward to the camera with a facial expression, I think the image would be much stronger. In #5 if the climber wasn't just starting the problem it could have been really cool with him near the top of the rock. Maybe you have those images anyway but didn't put them up?

sport and trad climbing use ropes


1. would have been better with face
2. not peak action
3. not a bad shot, pretty "stock"
4. ^^^^
5. missed focus, would have been better a bit higher/tighter on thr face to get full facial expression
6. seems kind of in between a nice wide shot (to show context) and a nice tighter shot
