Talk about perspective! I get the willies just looking at this picture.
It sure looks damned steep to me!
I agree, it looks like 90 degree angle from here! I hope it was
a fun climb.
Perfect perspective - often hard to get in climbing shots.
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.
