Doug on Red Zinger (II)

Doug makeing the traverse from the 5.10b section to the start of the 5.11d section. What the photo doesn't describe is how steep it really is.

Steep

I agree, it looks like 90 degree angle from here! I hope it was
a fun climb.

Great one

Perfect perspective - often hard to get in climbing shots.

Thanks Sisyphus

This one was pretty easy since the belay on Meat Grinder put you in a pretty good position for the photo.

as for the climb... when I went and did it it felt really steep.... like it was at 100deg (just my perception) but in reality its about 90-93 degree (slightly past vertical), but the fingers section until you get edges for the feet is hard. Before I tried it Werner Brauner and some woman (I think it was Bird Lew) were on it and she had led it placing maybe 4 pieces, and se looked so graceful, as compared to my thuggish ways.
