This photo is submitted under "Fall Line .10b" on the Morning Glory Spire at City of Rocks. I could be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure this is not Fall Line.

Taylor, you are mistaken... why do you say it's not Fall Line? Have you climbed the route? That's definitely the route Redtail in the background, which is the exact perspective you'd have if you were snapping photos to the climber's right of Fall Line.

Yes, I have climbed it. It just looks different than I remember it. The coloration of the rock appears to be different, although maybe that is just the photo itself. And I had thought Redtail was further around the corner of Morning Glory Spire. I don't remember it being visible from Fall Line (Look at this photo as an example: ).

Like I said, I could be mistaken, and if you're sure, you're sure. I don't claim to be an expert on the area or anything :)

Yep, both photos have Rabbit Rock in the background (location of Redtail and Sudden Pleasure, the obvious black streak in the background of the "disputed" photo). This photo is more cropped and shot w/ a tele lens... perhaps that's throwing you off? Not that this matters at all... just procrastinating before a stats exam. Glad you got to climb the route... super fun.
