Nice shot. Curious if it was orginally in BW did you used a color filter?

Isn't the technical crux the first move(s)?

Original shot was in color. I used Photoshop's black & white adjustment to convert to greyscale, thus reducing the purple lycra's impact (thanks Adobe). My friend Gene took the picture with my camera.

And yea, I guess the crux is a few moves prior, but same general vicinity. It's been twenty years so details are fuzzy...

Nice catch Tim. That is indeed Mt. Grossvogel in the background. Will repost the photo to its proper location.

Edge of Doom. I remember doing that in the early 90s, and I haven't been back since. Hard start as I recall. A route the deserves more traffic, and probably some bolt replacement as well.....

Wow, that's funny. I've done both routes, but I hardly recall Edge of Doom. I guess they're similar in ways. My memory is fuzzier than I thought...
