thank you :) I let him off after a few min. It's not as bad as it looks. There's a kick ass chicken head foot hold. I'd like to get up there at the right time of day some time just to get this shot again with the sun in the right place!
Thanks so much for pointing that out. I hadn't noticed. It's hard to line the shot up perfectly when you're perched on a ledge and belaying at the same time. Here's the same shot from the year before with a more accurate horizon line for your geometrically sensitive eye: http://www.mountaingirl.net/traverse.jpg
