Looks like a clenched 1st fingering a #1. Hope the index doesn't break with anyone on it.

Dude, it's hardcore! The pic speaks for itself. No comments are needed. That's universally bad ass!

Yeah, 80ft....I'm getting nervous looking at this on my little laptop screen. Did he make it all the way across?

By dog sized boulder problems I assume you mean terds? :)

I used 1/2" webbing from 3 independant anchors (1 10" tree, 1 stopper, 1 cam) to extend just beyond the lip of the rock. The ends of the webbing were tied off with a backed up overhand loop. I attached 2 opp and opp locking enduros to each of the 3 web strands. A 7mm cordellete (visible) is run through the 2 lockers on each of strands. The cordellete was equalized with a fig 8 loop and 2 opp & opp Omegas in the 8 loop as the tie in. Might be a tad on the excessive side if anything. Is there something wrong with this set up? I use it all the time so I really hope it's ok!! Never had a problem with it or heard anyone say it's not safe. Overkill jokes if anything. I'm pretty paranoid about my anchors in general and try to be on the excessive side whenever possible so PLEASE let me know if there's something unsafe about this. Other than the time consuming nature of course I love this set up for top ropes.

That's awesome. Great pic!

And you should really be doubling up on your biners. Especially the tie in!

Maybe stepping back over the rope would have made her more likely to fall. Sometimes it's a better idea to bend rules a bit depending on the situation. You can't go exactly by the book all the time. Looks to me like she's doing just fine.

I didn't see any routes that would take gear and the rock is pretty chossy.

She oughta. Isn't she on the cover of How to Climb 5.12 doing that drop knee?

Yeah a buddy and I were down there during the x-mas holidays. Rained for few days before this, but dried out quick. I thought the climbing (and view) was incredible! Def one of the best 5.8 pitches around. Hadn't climbed much slab before this, but didn't think it was too bad. Of course if it didn't eat gear quite as well I might be singing a very different tune! Those NC boys like to run it out on slab!!

3 out of 5 stars How many pitches?

Nice, fun route.

5 out of 5 stars Yeah gotta say, Organic, I wouldn't start talking smack when you have a silhouette shot on your profile and you have fallen and are grabbing the rope. No offense intended by bringing this up, just find it ironic. I realize you said "Silhouette CAVE shots", but close enough. Watch out for those glass houses...

Yup, good shot. Little blurry, but the fall colors make up for it. Shows the exposure well. There are quite a fw other rocking sixes though so not sure about the all time label. Great pic though. Wish it was me.

Very nice

I like the pic the way it is. Why does the climber have to be in focus for it to be an artistic or good shot? I like the climber out of focus, as if she's an after thought in the beauty of the natural surroundings. That's what makes it so appealing.

I also like the gear strewn about. Climbing isn't some sterile clinic with a place for everything and everything in it's place. Sometimes we have gear strewn about. It's a real climbing scene.
