A tight shot of the cam while he was hanging on it.  I've seen shakier placements, but never a shakier placement that actually held a fall.  After lowering and traversing back to the belay, Jeff gave the rope a flick and the cam popped out and slid down the rope into his hand.  No cleaning necessary.  Very efficient of him.

How did you guys get the photo? If he fell on it and then flicked it back down...??

From the other (awesome) pictures in the series, it seems like Denis was hanging on rappel from a rope to the side. Dec 30, 2014
