Rock Climbing Photos : Bouldering : Head Pointing "Hanging 30"

Head Pointing "Hanging 30"

Head Pointing

The story behind this one... There is an easy highball up the left side of this arete to get to the point at the top. There is also a roof line straight up the middle which was calling my name. About 20 feet up you hit the roof section with good holds but then you have to do a huge chuck over a lip to a hidden jug. Not wanting to back slap from 20 feet I decided to "Head Point" the rig. 2 small wires in the roof with dubious placements and a 20 minute plea to my belayer to let me do it (he didn't want to be involved if the wires snapped or pulled) and I scored the FA! Looking forward to the solo next...
