Thin air third pitch belay station, it can get crazy on any weekend with folks climbing in from toe-crack, thinner, turner's flake and thin air.
The Thin Air route with Pine Tree Eliminate at the top.  I've used XX to mark belay spots but only the first and second pitch have fixed anchors (bongs and bolts respectively).  Note that the third belay spot I've marked is actually higher up than the standard spot right above the chimney.  I belayed on the ledge slightly below the overlap on the 4th pitch.  I think this was nice and made communication and visibility there really easy.  Obviously, the belay would work from either ledge just fine.

Some serious camera tilting - like 20 degrees. The climb is now 5.9 and the trees grow sideways out of the cliff. The otherwise flat North Conway area seems drops dramatically towards the Atlantic.
