- Plakias Wall is a geologic mystery. If you've climbed on Limestone you know it doesn't usually form in perfect flat planes that go on for hundreds of meters, yet this wall looks like it was cut by a knife. The only other places I've seen like it are The Fins (Idaho) and the cliffs behind Sisteron (France). Plakias even has a few splitter cracks, and most of the routes have mandatory jamming. In the photo, @gabrielledarling is climbing Minotaurus (7b+) one of the best routes in Crete. #crete #cretegreece #plakias #plakiaswall #greece #greece๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท #klettern #escalada #climbing #grimper #climbingphotography #picoftheday #womenofclimbing

- Dave Pegg on Goliath (13a) at Enchanted Tower, NM. Dave was the founder of Wolverine Publishing. His early guidebooks (Bishop Bouldering, Red River Gorge) combined ultra-detailed topos, top-level photography and impeccable reproduction and printing. The result were books that transformed the genre - books that informed, but also entertained and inspired. Dave was also a generous soul who shared freely what he had painstakingly learned about guidebook production. #guidinglight #climber #dreamer #enchantedtower #newmexico #goliath #wolverinepublishing

- I like the permanence of rocks; big, solid and rooted in the earth in such a dependable, timeless way. It's disturbing that so many of our favorite local rocks have moved, toppled or burned up in the last few years. The Totem Pile in Donner is now literally a pile. The Orange Buddha Boulder tipped over in giant surf, the inevitable happened on Fear of the Inevitable and (years ago) Mickeys Beach crack cracked off. But the most recent and devastating loss is that The Bear Cliff got scorched in the Tubbs Fire. The St Helena area is closed indefinitely (north side crags) and early reports are that many of the holds and flake features on the Bear Cliff have cracked off, and that the lower bolts are bubbly and charred black.

- Sometimes, when replacing old bolts, you find that the mankiest-looking old bolts are bomber and nearly impossible to remove, and you feel dumb and pray that the new bolt is as good. Other times, an old bolt (like this tiny, rusted buttonhead) might slide right out and you wonder how it could even hold body weight. This one is from the bottom of The Falls Route at Castle Rock. Thanks @justinvitcov for the photo and the help. Donate to ASCA and BACC @bayareaclimberscoalition to keep this work going! Thanks @swifteddieg @kimpfabe @justinvitcov and Elmar for the good times!

- The Totem Pole is a skinny, 150ft tower in Lower Devils Canyon, AZ. The climb is two pitches, 5.9 and 10d. A burly 4wd road and a hike into a secluded canyon combine for a really fun day out. Because of ongoing mining in the area, the Totem Pole might not be there for much longer. I'm glad I got to climb it and glad I have this awesome photo from @tc.bukowski as a memory. If you want to get stoked about climbing in Arizona, click over and follow ace photographer @tc.bukowski for a treasure-trove of stunning climbing photography throughout the state.
