/ Cornice man
If you want to use it, you should probably do better than those people on facebook, and credit the guy who took it, Henning Wackerhage. He's registered on here.
erm..... fair use?
Not sure what you mean by that. Maybe I should just reply:

Can I show it to my mate?
Not my place to say. Ask Henning :-)
Maybe there's a rope going along the floor you can't see, up (the far side of his body) to his harness. Surely anyone who's gone to the effort of doing something that requires a helmet, wouldn't stand so far over on a cornice?
No, there was no rope. Henning thinks the man in question had probably just soloed something desperate. So the guy probably felt relatively safe peering over the edge of Observatory Gully.
Well that's a bit stomach churning! :-P
Realistically, he was quite safe. It was a pretty cold day.
Not that I'd do it myself, or let my kids do it :-)
He deserves a red bull hat for that
