Super sharp sht nick - how much of that is down to post-processing or is the 18-125 really that good?

I think the 18-125 is a brilliant lens. In fact I'm selling my 17-70 (which gets better reviews), because I like the 18-125 so much.

isn't the crux the move before, to the jug? (i thought it was anyway). great picture

Well I've only seconded the route, but I found getting to the jug MUCH easier than the move up to the sloper where Paul has his left hand.

Sloper? Feet on the rock? What is this duff sequence?!
Crank straight up to the good bit of the shelf directly above his right hand, and cut loose at the same time - anything else just isn't on.
P.S. The crux, by far, is fiddling in the gear.

great photo. Nailed this route third go last week and found the crux putting the gear in which left me only enough energy to crank for the sloper rather than the good bit, which inevitable led to me falling off.
