Hard to tell, but this looks like the very top of the first pitch, and the climber is reaching out to the rail one must mantle. On lead, this area has a bad fall potential, because the gear is below, and one will take a smack into the dihedral you can see just below...How'z your mantle doin' these dayz!??

Great photo, though the hard part isn't reaching the holds. The hard part is pushing out that mantle.

She must be shorter, giving her a disadvantage. Awesome anger on the rock!
