Winners of Caption Contest draw on ‘Crack’ jokes, Parachute references

Last month, we challenged readers to submit a caption to the photo below. Spiderman came up a lot. So did “crack” references, and “Did I leave the stove on?”-type jokes. In the end, these five captions (out of hundreds submitted) stood out as the best.

Congrats to the readers who sent in these winning lines! Your prize is some sweet ultralight gear, including a pack, shell jacket, and two apparel pieces from The North Face’s Verto Climb Collection.
