My good friend Federico recently sent me a few pics of myself firing "Out of Service Assis" in a cold windy day in Sasso. He says they are shitty due to being made with his shitty phone camera. To me, they are just perfect and sharp: looking at them, I can exactly see every grain of the rock, every small bit of chalk, every minuscule part of rubber pasted to the rock. I can even feel the tension in my body, the effort of crimping that last, horrible hold, the sound of the slap to the arete, the wonderful sensation of my body tightening and staying put on those holds.
But hey, maybe it's just me.
