Nice capture, Dave. After studying the full-size image I think that your green line points to me belaying Pavel on the fifth pitch. Pavel is leading the chimney above the crux, about 100' up.

Re: Neat!

Thanks guys! I was glad I was able to find Misha and Pavel up there. It was beautiful day in the Sierra, as you can see.

Way to go!

That is a great shot of a route I hope to do some day.

Getting people into the picture -- however small they appear -- always lends perspective. Nice job.

Re: Way to go!

Thanks Myles! I knew Misha and Pavel were on that route somewhere but I couldn't see them. So, I put my lens on 12x, took a few shots of the route, and figured I might spot them when I blew up the photo, and sure enough! This photo is shrunk down because of SP photo sizing rules. In the original, they are much more apparent.

Re: Way to go!

Totally agree.

Love the shots with climbers in them to give (among other things) a size reference point.

Cool shot David!!
