Nice shot but i think there is something up with your lens

Yeah take the camera back to the shop, it's totally fcked that one up.

It could just be a deceptive photo, but the combination of that much slack and some stretch makes me think the leader would be very close to decking if he fell at this point.

I'm guessing he likes editing, and you're right, my belayer deserves slap!

sorry

I like the climbing in the photo, but the route looks much less appealing than every other photo I have seen.
It also looks steeper than I thought with an unpleasant top out.

The top-out feels mildly iffy when soloing; the rock quality deteriorates. But don't let that put you off leading it. An historic route. The photos of Pat Kelly and Siegfried Herford (in bare feet) in the scoop are particularly notable.

Your belayer AND photographer need a slap for that one!

I guess the belayer thinks that for tradition the route should be soloed...but Russ noticed when he tried to nick his rockshoes too.

I like it, its weird, colourful and pretty interesting. Nice one!
