The 2010 Heart of Steel Poster has claimed it’s place on the wall at the Boston Rock Gym and Mr. Glassberg has been bumped…Move over Jon!

Last year I ripped out this image of 2009’s Heart of Steel competition at the Boston Rock Gym.

Well again this year the 2010 Heart of Steel comp yielded another image that I knew was going to work great for the wall.

Measuring about 4’x6’ this multi-layered 3D cut out is of Sasha DiGiulian who just edged out Francesca Metcalf for 1st place in the comp last February.

Here a couple of images I took of them from the 2010 comp. I should get them autographed!!
Here too is a link to some cool panoramic images that Willie Van Tassell took...

Unbenounced to me until after I put this together, I found out that Sasha had won the Lead Climbing National title at Pan American Championship down in Ecuador!

Not to be outdone, Francesca Metcalf took the National Bouldering Climbing title at the same event!

Way to show them how we do it here in the States Ladies!

It is truly a privilege to photograph some of these climbers. I have had the honor now of capturing several of the countries BEST.
