It's disgusting that a picture of a lighthouse and a canoe are beating this to pic of the week.

Glad you finally got this one done - worth the wait!

hey pete, took about an hour to set up, 2 raps in and some redirecting off a tree to pull myself away from the rock. But definitely worth the effort

Just utterly brilliant!

Once again, thanks guys for all your comments, very humbling.
Just to add to my previous photo stat, i didn't use any filters or any photo enhancement for the shot, it's basically as it was taken.

I saw this route when I went to Cheedale. Thought it looked amazing. Definitely going to give at crack at some point this summer. Other than the amazing position what is the climbing actually like?
JimmyKay - 21/Jun/10
The climbing is really good, though there is a real stopper move for me on the lip of the 2nd roof on some very slopey holds.
The upper section is brilliant (and easier) allowing for many heel hooks which gave me some rather achy legs the next day ;)
I definatly recommend doing it, though make your belayer wear a helmet...

when I did this route I always thought a shot from above would make a good pic.
