Looks like someone didn't heed the warning about shoulder length draws if you lead this route.

That's really interesting, I have always turned the corner about 10 feet higher than that-first climbing over those little roofs on the left, which are kind of scary. How was it at that spot?

[edit]: let's see, how else can we nit-pick the photo (and the ascent)? :)

Might be about 5.8, committing but once there it is solid. White shirt, white helmet, tan pants, what's with the blue chalk bag and yellow shoes? John, John, John. GQ dude, GQ!

I think it's a damn good photo and I'm not biased at all :-)

Should have used the reduce shadow feature. Would have washed out the pretty blue sky but what was the subject? John or the sky or the route? Also could have bumped up the saturation a bit. Not bad for an amateur beta photo.

Okay Charles.. saturation boost on just the sky. Then lift the high end of the tone curve a bit to even out the mid/low range histogram peak. Little bit of chromatic aberration on rock edge but nothing serious; nothing LR can't fix. Rule of thirds used fairly well so composition is sufficient but a top - down perspective would have been better. Sure - I suppose I could take my closure frustrations out on the nearest dog but there aren't any around. Sorry, lol! :)
