Good shot of the best part of the climb.
The glasses might be practical, but they are probably masking enhanced expression for us as photo viewers, on part of the leader.
Good capture of clipping action.

Interesting dents in the helmet too. It's obviously a well loved item that has seen previous adventure.

Thanks for submitting the photo gfdonc.

Haha. Those BD helmets (Vapour?) are so soft you have to be careful not to dent
them while un-boxing...
Comfy and light though

Good shot, I like the bored climber in the background waiting for their turn, really captures a side of climbing which is usually glossed over. Minus half a star for placing the cam too shallow at the lip of a thin flake. Minus another star for buying a granite coloured rope.

gnaguts - I'm not sure why you continually type like a prepubescent
teenager, but your dumbarse comments coming from an armchair/keyboard
warrior standpoint can have the effect of turning people off of climbing. I
understand that you may be pulling the piss, but grow up dude.

Yeah she's taped up, who cares? She might be on sighting it and not know
if she can jam any of it or not. It's also likely that she's been climbing
something else in the area which requires tape. I for one, consider myself to
be a crack climber, and never take off my gloves until the end of the day.

Yeah the cam is probably too shallow, yeah she could have placed it better
or used a different size, but she's out climbing with her buds looking like
she's having a good time, which is what it all about.

Peace.

For the record, I understand Mandy taped up in the valley that morning, not knowing what she was going to climb when they got up the plateau.

This thread pretty much sums up Chockstone! I gave you a full extra star for going to the hassle of rapping down just to take photos. I can never be bothered, which is why I have only a handful of decent climbing photos...
