lol, no. Tom was seconding at that point, but you can't see the rope. It is very exposed though...you step left off a huge ledge and there is nothing underneath you to the valley floor. It looks pretty freaky on lead too as you don't get any gear until you are committed to the traverse, and if you come off you will swing into the side of the ledge. Fantastic pitche to second...I have never lead it and I'm not sure I would want to either!

Wow! I'm giving you a 5 vote, not so much for the photo, but for doing it with a rucksack. That's a serious pitch.

You can get gear in whilst standing on the huge belay ledge!!

Took me 3 different trips before I got the balls to step out there; microwired22 must be made of rubber- the slam into the wall consequences are pretty obvious.
Not the only serious route; there's a Severe down near Soap Gut with a ludicrous launch across space from what I remember.
