Stylin'? He's hanging on the rope. The rope is at least holding his swing (it is tight like a guitar string) but I would bet he actually fell right after the picture was taken? Just my .02. Am I wrong??
Hang was staged, feet don't really need to come off. It was shot on a rare clear, low-humidity autumn day to capture the climb and the landscape. No falls taken, tight rope is probably a belayer issue. Lot's of people have since had themselves photographed there.
I see. Looks like a beautiful place there.
"...tight rope is probably a belayer issue." That's awesome, belayer doing his job, and it's an "issue" :P.
Looks like a great place to climb.
I know this guy, this is Si, he's a climbing instructor with Insight Adventures. In response to ksolem, I don't know what happened in the pic, but he was a great instructor and knew the Yangshuo climbing areas really well!
