Estimated 30 footer, thanks to going off route on this excellent looking E5. The audience is Ian Small onsighting a new E5 to the left of One for Q.

Good photo, but just wondering if it is possible to go off route while onsighting a new route?

Clarky is on/off an established route. The other chap is on a new route.

Did the gear rip or did he get dropped? How did 4ft of slack turn into a 30 footer?

Clarky was a lot higher up (10-15ft?) than this when he left the rock.

Did his left foot get hooked in the rope? looks like it might have.

He says he didn't, and that he was already correcting for it in this photo -- he says. I can't remember!

This is a fantactic photo. It captures compleatly the moments before the rope comes tight.

great photo! I think what I love most about this shot is the flailing nuts starting to fly upwards...you start to picture him slowly accelerating
