That's going to be harder to replicate for someone with a wingspan shorter than yours!

Congratulations, btw!

Thanks!
The top? Remo (5'10") did it just fine but it may be a touch harder. Plus, with his added flexibility he was able to get his right foot up higher and do the final move static as well. Vinny might have trouble however ;)

I mean the gear will be harder to replicate for a short climber. My impression is that the moves are going to be hard for just about anybody.

I really like this photo. I think the light filtering through the Fall leaves really brings out some unusual color in the rock.

Way to go Nick. Hard climbing for the lead. I saw Jon J.'s shots of you on this taken from above you on your earlier attempts. Great shots... very exciting shots. I saw the fall you ended up taking. I am very happy to see you using solid "side runners" to protect your body on this (and as well for the benifit and peace of mind of your close ones...)..

Burt, you should have seen the far I took after Jon left off the last move. I wound up inverted and blew off my hat. My mistake was that I placed a piece under my right leg in the last horizontal, it was sure to flip me. Problem solved by moving that piece to the left side.

With out the side runners this would be a X plus a questionable C3 protects the mantle and if it blew only the side runners might have a chance of saving your ass.

5'8'' last time I was measured.
Great lead by the Trad Ninja. I took the photo with his camera.
