By "climbing" the Reg NW Face, you mean coming within two falls of the onsight. Good effort man!

One of the best diving board photos I've seen. Truly "fwd" worthy.

Can someone please explain to me what the term "exposure" means in rock climbing?

Sure, take a look at this picture.

Last week watched Dean Potter (we think) base jump from the diving board as we were waking up on big sandy and starting the first pitch of the zig zags. One of the most terrifying and awesome things I have ever seen as he flew by us 30 feet from the ledge.

Jan 3, 2017 make a very valid point. Not many photos out there demonstrate the concept of exposure better than this. Makes you want to jump.
