Photoshopping Climbers Out of Images Becomes Funny Rock Worshipping Scene

Photoshopping Climbers Out of Images Becomes Funny Rock Worshipping Scene

In one of the more ridiculous things I've seen on the Internet lately; simply removing the main subject matter from these bouldering images has revealed a completely different photo. The people left appear to praising or worshipping these large rocks, and the variety and groups of people in some of the photos just adds to the level of absurdity.

If you're not familiar with what's going on here, then allow me to briefly explain. When a person climbs a large boulder (also known as bouldering) usually a small group of friends will stand below with their arms extended to help direct the climber in the event of a fall. There are large pads on the ground to soften the impact, and the "spotters" are there to make sure the falling climber lands on these pads.

Without the climber on the rock though, it just looks like a bunch of patagonia wearing rock worshippers. All hail the mighty rock!

These images and more can be found on the Instagram page allmightystone. If you have any yourself, feel free to send over. I talked to the guy who admins this page, and all he tells me is that he and some friends were bouldering one day and simply thought this would look funny. Well done friend, I had a good chuckle at this.

lol love it

I’ve traveled all over the east coast to rock climb and take pictures and I’m kicking myself so hard for not coming up with this idea.

Fun picks! Am forwarding a link to my daughters climbing team, if you don't mind. They take lots of climbing picks but have not really incorporated humor that much.


Bahahahaha this is great XD
