I can't understand why anybody would vote less than 5 as it is a powerful/impactful image unless it was on some anoraky/technical grounds.

Powerful image. Deserves 5 on that basis alone.

Great picture but he's not solo is he?

I'm not too sure, I know you can see another climber in the photo but I think hes part of a different team with his second hidden below him, I think the guy lower down went on to solo the left branch wheras the other climbers are on the right branch.

I see, still, I love the starkness of the photo.

Is the obvious climber not still below the point where you decide to go left or right? I love this photo because it was the first big ice route I did. There was so much more ice & snow then, but that was before climate change & Honister Pass looking greener, as it does today. I can't see the other climbers. Where are they?

Is the obvious climber still below the point where you decide to go right or left? I love this photo because it is the 1st serious ice route I did, but that was years ago & there was so much more snow & ice, much of the route was vertical or slightly overhanging. That was before climate change, before Honister Pass turned green instead of black. Where are the other climbers?I can't see them.
