I love the chalky ant trail. Great photo - quite unusual.

awesome picture, not sure if hanging rope adds to it or detracts !

Why the question mark? It IS!

SUPERB photo! Riglos is an amazing place to climb! You're photo gives a great sense of scale of the routes there and I like the hanging rope as it lets you see how steep the route is!
Did my first ever free hanging abseil off one of the towers there, was terrifying :oD

Brilliant - although, a bit concerned as to what has happened to the seconder's rope - look again!

Can't quite work out the line... ;)

the repeating pattern on the hanging rope makes it smell of Photoshop, but still a good one...

Brilliant! I can't wait to climb this route. This shot has just made it even worse - all your fault!! ;-)
Jack Geldard - 17/Oct/10Report
Superb shot, great sense of height!
Duncan_Andison - 17/Oct/10Report
Blimey. That's pretty high and steep. Is that the route that Lee Houlding trained on in the film about Mount Asgard?

Great pic...and a clear indication of the environmental damage we climbers cause with the use of chalk
Darron - 18/Oct/10Report
thanks for all the great comments. absolutely no photoshop involved. the rope was just really kinked so it twisted up like that...a nightmare for belaying!
ali k - 18/Oct/10Report
looks loose

Great shot, i missed the other parties lower down on the climb as i was looking at the rope trail. Excellent capture, well done

ah... but was he really wearing a blue top...
bubblewrap - 21/Oct/10Report
this makes me want to go there!!

Great picture. Not really sure a thin layer of chalk counts as "environmant damage", especially if you compare it to the flight and car use to get there.

Good fading light as you look further down.

I love the way that at first glance, this looks like some people ascending a path up some chossy mountainside and you wonder why it's being climbed. Then you realise it's chalk and then you wonder why the rope's at an impossible angle and then you finally realise just how steep it is.
