Route Overlays
(some examples)


I find it's often instructive to see a climbing route on an actual photo or map, rather than a written description or hand-drawn topo. This page has some images of photo overlays I've made of some of my favorite climbing routes. These are only examples of several more route overlays that can be found in the trip reports on my website. (As my Photoshop skills have developed, the hand drawn red lines of my early route overlays have evolved into the more professional annotated diagrams of my more recent trip reports.)

If you are interested in a higher-resolution image for printing, email me.

Enjoy!
