Re: Peaks to the right?

I don't know their names, but those are the mountains up in the Tuolumne region of Yosemite.

The prominent one to the right is Starr King, if that's the one you were asking about.

Yea, didn't know if that view was to the East or South.

Are you roped?

Can't always tell the true angle from a photo, but looks like no rope. If so, no chance to stop yourself if you lose contact.

Re: Are you roped?

Thanks for all the good comments. Yeah, we are roped. The angle hides the rope perfectly, but it traverses back to a bolt about 40 feet back, then goes down to the other climbers at the anchor.

Re: Are you roped?

I was gonna say, it's pretty funny to see you soloing so far off the ground - with helmets!

Impressive shot. I too was surprised not to see a rope. Very nice.
