Download US climbing wallpaper pictures

"I refuse to believe in a risk-free society where the thrill of living is traded for the safety of existence."
On this page:
2010/10/10: I'm currently adding some WUXGA versions of those wallpaper images. That's 1920x1200 pixels for all of you big monitor owners, which is most of us nowadays. If you have a much bigger monitor, check this.
Those are pictures selected from our three year stay in Colorado and our 2003 road trip in South-Western United States where we climbed in 8 states.
