Today I set out to write a post for my new segment “Awkward Climbing Photos” with the theme 10 Awkward Photos of My Friends Not Climbing On Climbing Trips, inspired by these 2 gems:

But while I was stalking everyone’s Facebook pages for trip pictures, I realized I had the topic all wrong. Special thanks to Jeremy Salkin and Rob Mauler for your amazing photography skills (since most of these pictures came from your albums!). So, today I present to you 12 Awkward Photos of Gerrit Spieker Not Climbing on Climbing Trips. These are in no particular order, and yes, I chose 12 because I honestly couldn’t narrow the list down any further. Feel free to add your own captions in the comments section. Enjoy!
