Fantastic shot! I wonder why she put in so much gear in that one section?

This climb looks amazing, and as she proved well protected. Great shot!

There are many reasons to put in a lot of gear close together. The gear might not be so good there, quality of the rock could be questionable, she is strong enough to do so.

Amazing looking climb! I want to get on this now. See you all in Australia.

It is a very cool shot, but is that preplaced gear? It doesn't look like she is carrying a rack.

^^^ I think you're right. Nothing on her harness and you can see a purple sling just above the lip.
