Judging by the 'rack', or lack of...I'd say a SPORT-lead fall. Try a factor 2 TRAD-lead fall....scary...pffftt.
Who took this picture? boyfriend? Matching yellow rubber too?

3 out of 5 stars I agree, either cut the rope at the damage section and use it as a shorther length rope OR tie a Butterfly knot at the damaged section to minimize the stress on those bare strands.

What's this have to do with climbing?
I wouldn't even hang a cat off that chain...

Check your fig8 knot. Tail looks awkward here.
(Just a tip, not a criticism.)

Looking Good on Lead!

Is that a cheat? :)

Another tip; buy a locking-biner for your personal safety line. Looks like a regular gate clipped on the back of your harness.

Great shot!
Haven't climbed there yet, but I'd love to some day.

Excellent Attitude! That's how you get better. You look great trying anyway :)

You look good, but that Sport Route looks crumby. I can't see an anchor below you with the extremely extended draw(!). Why would someone develop a sport route with such poor protection placement? I'm not familiar with the climb or the area but I'm not impressed by what I see in this photo (except for the climber).

4 out of 5 stars Nice looking dual-axis Cam! Makes me want to try this model. I'm a big BD-Camalot fan but this design looks enticing! Curious to try the metal alloy against the rock I climb. As much as I like the mechanics of the BD-Camalots, I prefer the bite of the metal from my Metolious TCU's on the rock I climb in NW Ontario.

Not locked AND you're trying to manage all that through one dismally worn biner AND ONE anchor point. I'm glad I wasn't the 2nd. =:o

You're worried about the anchors? What about your belay set-up? If you're worried about the anchors then why wouldn't you equalize it over both anchors, properly?
This is another great 'how-NOT-to" pic. Thanks.

Is it just me? Where in the world are you? You're looking for a climbing partner, but you give no location...? (p.s. I don't think you're going to have trouble finding a partner who's willing to be patient. I would be!)
