Body belay, nice :-)

Is that how it really was?! Great historical shot. I wonder how this will look in 50 years from now...

Is this really a body belay if the belayer is clipped in?

The belayer should be anchored to the rock. It is a body belay when the rope is wrapped his back and left arm but in picture he doesn't have the rope wrapped once round his left arm so would struggle to hold a fall properly.
