Nice photo of an awesome route. But why the hand tape, that rock is as smooth as a baby's bottom!

Pretty sure the tape was just still on there from a previous route. Either that or I'm a
massive soft c0ck? Probably the latter?

I actually must confess that I have never climbed the route, when I saw the pic I confused it with a different climb, icebird.. oops.

I'm sure you're not a massive soft c0ck, that's a big call.

Personally I feel there's nothing better than having slightly sore hands as a reminder of the awesome jamming from the previous days of climbing, it helps me get through the work week!

Great shot and looks like a cracker of a route.

Nice! That shot alone has rekindled my desire to visit Point Perp (have not yet made it up there).

And tape gloves leave a reminder of the weekend's awesome jamming for your week at work as well, albeit in the form of little bits of sticky grey gunk stuck in the hairs of your wrists. Beats scabs...

Ahhh the point!

This is an all round awesome photo - with a great in-situ climber to round it off!
Love the waves, the imposing crack to come, the composition - half crazy
shoreline half blank rock face with the crack creating a nice halfway line.
I thought I've climbed WindJammer, but that crack isn't ringing any bells...

What's the weather like down south this weekend.....

A well balanced photo with many engaging components made more so with the juxtaposition of colour/movement of the component pieces.

The perspective certainly draws the viewer in and makes them feel like they are there.

One of the things that would have made it better photographically for me, would have been more involvement visually by the belayer, but that is just an unfortunate timing of when the shutter was pressed I guess.

God, its horrible! I'm scarred by the sight of daave's face enough in my daily life and seeing it here is just too much!!

Seriously though, that is a cool shot. I'm starting to think a camera pole at the point could be really fun......
