This is wicked. Would love to have this as a poster.
Flash works really well and isn't too overpowering.

Hi Nick,
This is a striking photo, but there's a weird perspective thing going on here. That's a big mat, but it looks tiny compared to Micky. Is he much closer to you than the mat? Has something funny happened to the depth perception? Or am I talking Bollox - I'm no photographer BTW....

Hi Steve,
Not quite sure. The pad will be slightly further away than Micky because the climb is very overhanging. You can see him working it here at about 9 minutes and climbing it at the end: http://vimeo.com/31326082
