I bet you can 'static' that Mark (you're as tall as me!).
Have a 5 for 'Showboating' :)

Have wanted a go on this for aaaages. Nice to see another great photo of what promises to be a great route.

Not an easy route for the vertically challenged! Dynamic composition though.

What a moment in time shot that is, well worth a 5 in my book. Well done to photographer and climber.

It's a friend at your feet and about foot to jump for the top. A confident approach is a must!

The photo of AndiT doing exactly this that I took 5 minutes later is, imho, a lot better than this and has better composition. Howevere, being a more modest chap he doesn't have the cocky, strutting expression of MarkS here. Perhaps I should put that up for comparison?

Is that the face of Jesus looking up at him from the shadows? I'd be worried if he started turning up like that on my photos...

Shouldnt this be in the catagory "Jumping" as apposed to "climbing"?

Shouldn't this be in the catagory "Jumping, slacklining etc" as apposed to "climbing"?

Regardless of its cliambability - smear, pad or whatever - it's a damn fine photo!
