I'm glad you guys had fun up there, but you really need to learn some better anchor practices. In this picture, there is a follower who was incorrectly being belayed in "guide mode" off of a single piece of protection. The brake side of the device is not tied off, nor is there a hand on the brake. If he leaned back, he would fall 200ft, and that's only if you were still tied into the rope. At this point, the entire fall would be on ONE bolt.

Also looks like you are clipped through 2 loops of a daisy chain(?).

I was just thinking "how many things can you find wrong with this picture."
