From bright, multicolored “rocks” strategically placed on the walls to puffs of white chalk lingering in the air to climbers dangling fifty feet in the air, there was no shortage of visually interesting things to photograph at Planet Rock in Ann Arbor. Accompanied by two experienced climbers, I was able to shoot as they tackled bouldering problems and top-roping routes. Eventually, I took a break from shooting to get my belay certification so I could try out the top-rope routes myself. Next time I make it to Planet Rock, I’m planning to experiment with different angles and perspectives–maybe even climbing ahead to take photos as the climbers scale their projects.
