Rick Phillips just coming thru the roof crux section on 3D Disco (20) of the ledge at Simples Goldmine, New Nowra, NSW. All climbs at this sector start off the "Perma-Ledge" which has been installed 20m off the jungle floor. See Also: Pic 2

A good photo, especially given the contrasty light conditions.

With a traverse into the climb, a possible leader fall during it would put a side-loading onto the belayer.

... The belayer in pic 2 seems comfortable not being tightly tethered(?) due to the convenience of the permaledge.
~> It wouldn't want to be a big leader fall to upset that scenario..?

Is he wearing earphones or is that a bolt in his head?

I like picture number two better, but I can't imagine sport climbers ever enjoying the joys of camping out on that ledge!

Love the ledge! Great example of where some damage is heaps better than no intervention.

Not a bad pic, I like the exposure... but it's been up here too long!

What a pic - it's scared every other budding photographer away for months.
Maybe it should become the new "face of chockstone" and replace all the
other icons on the website..
