The amazing 5.9 hand crack on the seventh pitch of The Black Orpheus. The hairy arm jammed into the crack is mine. Taking one-handed photos while free-soloing is a blast! Lens cap removal/replacement is an art.

Unbelievable,

I can't even allow the thought to enter the mind.

Just awesome...

looking crack. How come you decided to free-solo instead of rope up? There are other pics for the route page where you guys use ropes right? Regardeless, awesome pic, awesome climb, and congrats.

Flaring or shallow crack?

Looks truly splitter, but how come it's a .9? Looks sustained but like either solid lie-backing or jams. Lens cap removal/replacement? That's what point-&-shoots are for! Do you still climb? Some of us miss your free-solo registers/TRs.
