looks more like leaving earth orbit. But what do I know..I'm dead.

The photo is definitely the top (about 15-20 feet from the top) of the final pitch of Spaceshot, the one that starts from Earth Orbit. Twice I've groveled my way past that section with mixed free and aid. It's tough mentally to get out of the aiders there. Cool pic though.

...and SURPRISE! The bush finally, and suddenly, blows out.

I spared the bush and placed a #3 camalot as a directional. We had brought a #5 or #6 wild country that was still on the EO ledge - I happily tagged it back up and made one more aid move. I'm a whimp.

The free move there is great! Probably no harder than 5.5 as you hand traverse that rail then throw a leg in the wideness.
