Nice photo.

Point of climbing technique - it looks like you could have used each double to clip
one wire without a sling. I'd only really use a sling like that for a single rope.

Three stars for featuring this route, which is an absolute ripper. The photo
itself is okay but not great: the blurring of the hand and unusual position
detracts a bit.

Hmm.
I disagree (sorry Doug), and think the blurred hand and unusual position help make the photo! :-)

Three stars for using double rope technique and carrying a mega-rack!

IT is a weird photo - but for a climbing pic, it's really intriguing. Which hold will he
grab? Why did he clip the nuts that way (see M9's thread)? Where the hell is his right
leg?

Would love to see a follow up photo to see what happens next.

Looks like a very fun climb too.

I take your point M9 about double rope technique and the huge rack. When
I climbed it I tried to strip my rack down as best I could but still had quite a
lot of big stuff. And martym, it IS a great route. Yes it would have been very
interesting to see the next photo!

Great route. Interesting photo. For me, the crux was overcoming rope drag up high
caused by a single rope and passing showers.

That way too much crap on your harness....get yourself a bandolier! Such a long sling
is prob redundant with doubles....and hexes....really in this day and age!
