"these are taken in northern Mosul at about 3000'.

The valley below is where King Alexander fought a huge battle with the King of Babalon."

Nice pictures, Lance!

Thanks for sharing...

Takes a different breed of "brave souls" to put yourself in that situation. Only the utmost respect and admiration I have for someone like him. Look fwd to tying in a rope with D soon.

Cattalk enjoying his new home wall.

Holds by Metolius, rifle by Colt.

 

It's good to remember that climbers are doing their part for the cause.

He's a great guy, and loved by everyone who knows him.

D was my partner for years, he loves to climb and is from Snohomish.

Shoot him a PM, I'm sure he would appreciate it.

Guard detail with no mag in the weapon? I don't think so.

 

Good on him for doing what he can to stay stoked.
