The Fisher Towers near Moab, Utah, are known for their loose rock and difficult aid climbs. A few popular routes, such as the Colorado NE Ridge (5.8 C2 IV) are climbed regularly. A few pitches up, a group of highliners put up a line between the Kingfisher (left) and the smaller neighboring tower. Despite the snowy and dangerous conditions, world-record holder Faith Dickey is seen successfully walking the line.

TOOLS: Nikon D80, 16-85 mm, 1/250sec, f/8, ISO 100
