although the photo nazis will have a field day at the dust and border this is a 5 purely because it's a photo of a man on flying butress direct in flippers!

How did you get up the slab?? Good photo 5*!

Heya Oli! The slab is climbed backwards (facing away from the rock) making it the crux I'm guessing!
