Meilee enjoying the exposure of the classic Valkyrie (VS 4c) at the Roaches
Nick Smith, May 2004
Climbers: Meilee Rafe, Paul Evans
Camera used: Canon EOS 300D
It was a shame that the light was so poor for this shot, but I still think it was well worth the effort to photograph such a classic route from a different angle. The abseil proved a bit worrying though because I wasn't very happy with my anchors at the top!

I think it's a brilliant shot- I quite like the dark, coolness of it.

Looks like the belayer's thinking "ooh....nice arse.."

one of my favourite climbing images, you get real empathy with the move, its the angle that makes it and be nice to see more like this maybe try and get even closer.
