Thanks, this photo was taken on the diamond of longs peak... a traverse pitch so with only two climbers the best pics are on this pitch. this picture is of me leading,,, my next lead was on pitch 5 where half way up i got caught in a nasty lightning/hail storm.

oh man its a great climb only 7 pitches but you gain 800' just climbing up to broadway ledge, this photo is over 1000' vertical and very near 14,000' over 800' to go and very serious exposure.

....but masterfully photographed, can even see nimble thronyeens and spare carabiners in a bantered array near the dimly lit foreground. Well done!
