Well, I guess it’s old. Tori Allen hasn’t been seen much in the climbing community lately.

There are climbs at Idyllwild that need retrobolting?

Graduates of the Vertical Limit school of climbing ...

Awfully nice of her to put in all of that pro for him while free soloing, but wouldn’t it be a better example for the kids if she was actually tied into the rope?

She’s doing it wrong.  Obviously school children climb like this:

holy shit, they actually got both the fig 8 and the clove hitch right in this picture. Bravo to the artist for actually getting it correct.

Where is the rope going at the top? Is there another climber in front of her?

Clearly they aren't top roping because there is only one side of the rope but that must mean she is in the middle of the rope or maybe she isn't part of the team climbing and is just free soloing between 2 others.

She's not even tied in to the rope... And she's wearing sneakers?

The one all the way on the right is the best

You've never free-solo-top-rope-aid-climbed? Before all this newfangled gear came out, that no one even knows how to use, that's the only way people aided routes; and we didn't have any of this harness stuff that all the "sport climbers" are wearing these days, you don't need a harness to climb rocks.

Wouldn't an easier question be:  What is not wrong with this picture?

No lockers on that ice axe signage. #YGD

Neither “climber” is wearing a helmet.

Might want to look into baselayers.
