this gets a 5 just for the timing and the comment imho

Must have been hard getting "all that ice" off the route. Good effort and good point well made. Not a bad shot either!

Topping out looks a bit of a challenge!
Dave Musgrove - 09/Dec/10
Ok, for honest reporting's sake I climbed a couple more metres then down-climbed the whole thing. That's not to say you couldn't top out though but it would be a bit dicey on the solo.
But one thing was clear: there was not a patch of ice on any of the holds.

you'd have a mission getting a car in there at the moment...it's just a couple of flashes.

Cracking photo Alex!
Backing off a VS John, more training needed!

Surely this route must be due for a downgrading with all the chipping and scratching on it?

You must have been singing when you saw the result Alex. Getting the correct balance of natural/flash light is not easy and the climber in just the right pose. Perfect timing. Utterly brilliant photo and an inspiration to us all.

Nice flash work.Speedlite? good work.Passed me by at first glance but pic has grown on me, worthy POW.

Could get a downgrade for that big, white, bouldering mat you've got under it... How deep was the snow?

ice axe chumps if you put as much effort into your actions as this photo you'd had a better day doing something of value!!
Chevin Coyote - 12/Dec/10
Just look at all of that chalk damaging the rock! Terrible!

Congrats - one of the most apt photos of the week EVER :o)

Surely this pic is the greatest silent argument against dry-tooling on the climbing world's touchstone rock.

If I could, I'd give you six stars. Cracking shot!
