222Days #144 Climbing to the Top

A Climber on the very top of a needle shaped rock. Garden of the Gods, Colorado, USA

Check out the very top of this rock. A climber is there.

It was scary to watch all the climbers scaling nearly straight sided rocks. In this photo you can see his climbing rope where he has pulled it up behind him. His only safety net. The weather was perfect until the clouds quickly blew in with a bit of rain. Not enough to dampen spirits, but the wind must have added an element of danger to the already dangerous climb. Photo taken at Garden of the Gods, just west of Colorado Spring, Colorado, Oregon, USA.

      Not just one; they were dangling on every rock; and not just guys, girls everywhere and one poor grey haired mom. Pure insanity. But it appears they love it. Rock climbing is a very popular sport.
