It was quite precarious shooting from this position - every time I solo down a route & lean out just to take a pic it reminds me how much more sensible it would be to lug an ab rope up there and go to the trouble of setting up a belay! :&

Good shot Nick. It must have been shot by many, but you've found a great viewpoint to capture the essence of the route.

Finally did this route this week - it was this very photograph that inspired me many moons ago when I first saw. Absolute classic.
