Rock Climbing Photos : Trad : The Head Arete

The Head Arete

The Head Arete

This was an awesome route, but presents a belaying nightmare. For the belayer at the bottom, picture yourself catching a leader fall and being pulled towards the tide that's coming in. For the the leader belaying the second...with the combination of the crashing waves and wind and the start of the climb being overhung, you will NOT hear anything your climber is saying. It is also the hardest part of the climb, so you have to keep a real tight belay and hope you don't pull them off.
