Call for climbing photos / TCI

theCrag supports The Climbing Initiative, TCI in its efforts. Amongst it is the creation of a best practices document for route naming.

For the illustration of the best practices document TCI is looking for climbing photos of routes with unique and memorable names.

If you have suggestions, please post the link to the photo on theCrag below in this discussion.

Thanks you and happy climbing, the team of theCrag!

Does the name have to linked to the physical features of the climb - i.e. name + photo illustrating why it is named so? Or just a photo of a random climb with an interesting name?

If going towards the former, here is a nice photo of young Alec on the aptly named Butterfly Wall

Definitely "El Delfin" (The Dolphin) in Rodellar needs a mention:

Fahrradlkant'n or in english: "bicycle edge"

"Oberreintal" has other funny route names as well. One example is "Milka", not the chocolate but an abbreviation for "Militärkante", because the german mountain infantry trained here.

An excellent description (and its name) of a sport climbing route. 7a in Schlossberg, Unteres Inntal - unfortunately currently closed for safety reasons.
