looks like his belayer is either hauling him, catching him, or enjoying him. Nice camera angle though.

Hozed: (n) When your dumbass belayer locks off the rope just because he thinks you are about to fall, thereby invalidating your ascent and forcing you to lower, pull the rope and repeat without weighting the rope.

Short-dicking at its finest (worst?).

Indeed. If he fell right there he'd be really screwed. (am I allowed to say that?)

No, I think he made it far enough to place the next draw--then his evil belayer decided to yank him down. As you can see, the belayer failed, since the climber was able to grab a hold before falling. Bonus points for the send. Kudos!

uhmmm addiroids.... how could he weight the rope from there, hes above his last piece so if hes weighting the rope then hes already let go.

He is above his last draw, but by the belayer keeping the rope tight, he doesn't allow the climber's body to swing naturally and to control his own momentum. Holding it tight like that can either pull the climber off the route, or assist the climber to stay on by not letting his momentum cause him to swing off. Neither being a good thing if you're going for a redpoint. BTW, great photo!

Who cares what the belayer was doing this pic is INSANE. Horray for shoulder muscles! Peace.
