why has he got his feet up there? Are you sure he isn't walking with a hunch and you haven't turned the photo round 90 degrees?

Busted! It's true, the hardest thing was getting his rack to point out behind him so it looks like its hanging down after rotating it ;o)

my feet are up there because I was doing it wrong! man I felt lame after trying that. apparently it helps jamming a knee in the crack, anyway it was just a shoddy attempt basically.
photos look great, cheers oli.

Laybacking it is more like solid 5b

Whats the common method then, jam and spread your legs?

Bridge it, then when you get scared (like i did) wedge yourself in it put some more gear in, then bridge again.
