Climbers on Cookies on Sunday (5.10+?)
This is, according to Patrick Paul, a route of relatively recent vintage and high caliber, on the Magician Needle. It goes at around 5.11 with some ass clenching runouts. Anyways, if you look closely, there's a red speck (the leader) with a cast shadow onto the light colored ridge, a thin dark line (the rope), and a white speck (the belayer) beneath the great expanse of slabby horror between them. Pretty 'rad'. Took this shot from the second pitch of Yellow Brick Road. Yes, the Magician really is that big.
