Great shot of "the jump." It was very unnerving standing on that little ledge and looking down and out at that sloped "landing" spot. However, the rock there is real nice and sticky and my landing was much softer on my feet than I anticipated. I focused on trying to jump straight ahead from a squat (with both feet at the same time) and grab the right edge of the landing rock with my right hand. Just be careful to not catch any of your gear on the ledge behind you as you jump!

It's only about 5.4 to downclimb instead of "jump", but I guess that wouldn't be as fun.
