These are shots from last year when my son and I went to Father/Son camp. We had done the rock wall before, but this was my first time on a real rock face. Pretty scary, to me anyways.

These were all done with a 20D and 24-85mm lens

My Son took this one of me in the last part of the climb. To get to the final stretch of the top, there are no toe holds so you just have to muscle it out with arm strength, when you are already wiped out from the climb.

This is right on 28 about 3 miles north of North River... so its North River, not North Creek. Its just past you see a sign for Indian Lake, and just past the entrance to Northern Frontier Camp (which is where we were). We were actually standing right next to the road (Rt. 28) to start up the rock face. Not a big deal for real climbers, but pretty scarey stuff for a novice like me.
