Pre-placed quickdraws, though? And what's he ever done on Grit?

Made me smile, as did PeteH's comment.
A well deserved five.

Brill photo Ian, the look of concentration on his face, excellent.

You should be ashamed. -Thought i'd get in there first. Bon effort getting him to lead rather than top rope and repect to the weee geezer. How long till you send him off up Edge Lane?

Is it just me or does the belayer look like they are 90 degrees to the rock?
If you rotate the photo through 90 degrees, it does give the impression that the young lad is crawling on the floor...?
Not saying that he is, but certainly gives that impression when turned through 90 degrees.
Makes for an interesting dicussion...

The angle of the trees is also suspect, is it on the flat or not?

The belayer is standing with their foot resting on the wall and i it looks as if the ground falls away (as it often does at the base of a crag). I think this just makes a slabby route look more slabby!

favourite climbing photo ever

It's an established F3+. Hardly flat for a young lad, or anyone for that matter.
Great shot *thumbs up*

Gives me hope for the future. Perhaps the crags won't be deserted in 10 years. (OK I know its in France but I can dream)
