Henry refusing to yodel during the finishing moves.  The end of our second pitch, here the arch has ended.  The climber is crossing the arch, although it doesn't appear to be an arch in the photo.  Looking down the first pitch.  The crack in the foreground eventually delineates the arch. <br /> <br />From this belay stance you can squeeze down through the crack and reach the underside of the arch and hiking territory.  How do I know that?  Because I did it in the opposite direction before the climb, we hiked up under the arch, and I squeezed through the crack and out onto the face, the exact spot I ended up belaying.  Looking up at the arch which you climb over.  You have to hike up left of the climb to get this perspective.
