Ah good, I was hoping for more critique on the climbing itself.
No harness - that's one.
But you can do better than that, surely?
Well, that ain't exactly the most elegant mantle I've ever seen.
Knee on the rock? Style points deduction!
And by the way, what exactly are you tied in to? It's hard to tell, but it doesn't look like you've got a bowline on a coil either. Belt loop?

No harness or bowline on a coil tie-in
Some bizarre rope work or summit lasso thingy going on
Belayer taking photos, rather than belaying or spotting
Stepping on the rope
I bet that carabiner gate isn’t lock closed
No quad bolted rap anchor with Mussy hooks for a safe descent
No chalk bag (a must for all Class 1 summits)
Shoe-laces way too long
Attempting a heel-hook in Merrills
No baseball cap on backwards
No rock gym-membership card on your belt
No 60 Minute film crew to capture the awesomeness
BTW, very cool Sierra history, thanks!
