Funny, I always pictured Gollum as a free-soloist. Nice photoshop job.

The dude who plays Gollum (don't remember his name) is reportedly a climber. It was a good idea to have his colleagues make up this photo!

Change the cam to a hex and you'll have it right.
I was there that day, he didn't have any cams.

Gollum is so great that he doesn't even have to look to find the perfect placement for a #2 camalot. I'm surprised, though, that he'd part with his gold preciousss #2 so willingly. Ah, so that's the look on his face. He's runout by a good thirty feet and that's his last preciousss. Bummer dude, better make sure that thing's not overcammed so that Frodo can get it out later.
