KlenkeNicely arranged


Voted 10/10

The two tall objects (person and rock) in perfect unison make this a good picture. You can also see why there is some difficulty in determining which is higher: the summit where Moni is standing or the top of the balanced rock.

As usual Fred, you post a great pic. I agree with Paul that there is a nice balance between the climber and the balanced rock.

This pic was from '79----many years ago----wonder if the tenuously connected rock is still there. Great pic by the way, congrats. on a safe climb
