Rock climbing is a popular activity among some outdoor enthusiasts (not this one, though).
This massive rock in Yosemite is popular with rock climbers, and the meadow below is a popular place to watch the climbers.
If you wonder why my shots are a bit fuzzy, the climbers were hard to reach with my 300mm lens. Also, I was lazy and depended on the image stabilization feature of the lens rather that setting up the tripod. The yellow circle indicates where the climbers in the next shot were.
The guy in the upper right is preparing to pull up the gear that is down by his buddy.
It takes most climbers at least two days so they must find a ledge or use a suspended hammock to sleep.
This climber and his partner were on the other face, a bit to the left of where a rockfall occurred a week later. Geotripper posted some information about that.
This group was below and to the left of the first and are hidden from view by a tree in the first shot.
This seems an appropriate entry for Outdoor Wednesday, hosted for us by Susan at a southern Dreamer. Click the link to see more views of the world outside.
