An interesting update/link ajf.

Notwithstanding the fact that it is obviously an impressive ascent and they deserve appropriate credit for it, I found a couple of photos on that site interesting.

Re the first feature photo from that link...
>Short fixing on the Changing corners pitch, near the top of the Nose.

Is that a bong I see on her harness?
This seems unlikely NIAD gear to me in my ignorance of equipment for such an undertaking!

Re the last feature photo from the link...
>Enjoying the early morning sunshine from the top of Smith Rocks, on our way to climb the Monkey Face.

Standing on a balance board in an unlikely location! What gives with that?

Do you want join me for the triple-threat on Doggie? Or anyone else?
Titan, Collossus and Gigantor in a day?

Click to embiggen:


I can't see anything bong like on her harness but I do think that's a really nice photo (I bet 5.10 and Adidas do too).

Thanks for the detail-pic ajf. You are right, it appears to be a strap, or perhaps a short sling.
