The run out above the last bolt on P5.  Notice Adam didn't place anything once at the ledge/roof above until after traversing past it.  The rock is decomposing and hollow, so he didn't stop for a belay but instead mostly linked 5-6 until just about running out of rope. I took a line up and slightly right after this bolt, trending more right towards the top. No gear to protect this from a massive swing though, seemed better then using cams in crap rock especially for an anchor.

Great pic. Might as well not even clip that 1/4"er cause a fall from that length is gonna snap it like a twig. Dec 15, 2008
