Nice photo. I'm sure there are situations where being 6' 5" is advantageous, but why make a 5.4 pitch more difficult than you have to?

Thanks Benjamin. It didn't make it more difficult, just more fun and interesting.

Excellent shot. The draws hanging from your harness are a little bit of a giveaway, though.

Still don't get it. I'm following a pitch and stemming wide for the photo--that's all there is to it.

Awesome! And I'm with you, I don't know what the other haters are hating about... Thanks for posting the cool pic. Hoping to jump on this route sooner than later.

Klimbien...what's with the knee jerk haters comment? Jason's showing off while on top rope and folks are calling BS on the merits of stemming the dikes.

"Showing off"? Don't know why people are making those comments about the photo. He posted a photo, with no egotistical comments, and the wankers are weighing in.

Looks like fun, Jason.
