Re-Gram: 9 Night Climbing Photos
Corey Fitzgerald runs night laps at the Flume Gorge, New Hampshire.
Climbing Black Crack (5.9+) at Annapolis Rock, Maryland.
To beat the heat last August in Squamish meant a lot of nighttime headlamp sessions. Here’s Tasha Chang running laps at the Grand Wall Boulders.
Keith Nadeau climbing the perfectly named Midnight in a Perfect World (V9) on a great night of climbing.
We like to get out after work with headlamps—or without when we forget them—to Boulder Natural in Pawtuckaway State Park, New Hampshire.
Some routes in Indonesia don’t have top anchors, so downclimbing is the way to clean. Here, Garibaldi Owen downclimbs Poster Kanan (5.10c) to retrieve his draws.
When the Las Vegas sun gets too hot, Ethan Pringle turns to the night and his headlamp to climb. Here he is on the infamous The Nest (V15) in Red Rock.
Here’s Grand Canyon (5.12c), one of the best routes in Devil’s Gorge, North Wales, all lit up.
My friend Daniel created a light trail while rappelling pitches 5 and 6 on the West Face of Leaning Tower, which he fixed ahead as the sun went down.
Low light or no light should never stop a good session. These climbers ignored the setting sun to flick on their headlamps for good temps, more climbing, and a bit more adventure.
