Trevor McDonald and I are like two kids in a candy store when it comes to climbing. The first moment we saw the Penguin in the Cirque of the Unclimbables, we dropped everything and got right to it. Despite endless warnings of rain plaguing the area, the weather was clear and I was able to capture our little granite mecca and its incredible backdrop.

TOOLS: Canon 7D, 24-105mm, 1/125 second, f/16, ISO 100
