There is so much WTF in the picture. I don't even know where to start, but the doubled screamers 5 feet off the ground is an interesting choice.

It's called "Aid Superstars at Indian Cove".

It’s nice to see Tradiban and Harumpfster Boondoggle getting out and enjoying some desert rock together.

Could someone please describe in detail what is going on, for science.

Smart belayer standing back to avoid the mass destruction when that guy peels off.

Yes, I'd be happy to explain the science. The belayer has chosen to reduce the fall factor by standing far away from the wall. He is a savvy guy! E=mc(squared)

Haul bag has the peanut butter in it and the belayer knows his priorities.

Ross knows his history. If he says it's Royal Robbins - it's Royal Robbins.
