Jeff, I wish I had your eye for Main Cliff! I'm having a hard time telling whats what here. I'm also not even 100% sure I am on Underdog as this photo was taken probably over a year ago.

Definitely Underdog. Your right hand is at the top of the crack, about to mantle onto the crystally block to finish. The draw to the left of your head is the last one on Peanutman.

I annotated some parts of the photo for reference points. It's interesting because parts of the photo are WAY skewed due to the angle.

Selfishly, I'm hoping Mark can confirm that the anchor in the top right is Goldbug Finish. :) "BIG moves to good crimps and a technical top out" sounds good to me! I hope I can channel my inner Shim. :)

Sweet! Thanks for doing that man. You're right about the angle...for instance, the Underdog "ledge" below the anchors barely looks like a ledge from this angle.

Also, does Iron Man really traverse that far left?

The photo makes the traverse out left on Iron Man look longer than it feels. "The move" is over and the traverse is on relatively easier ground but with nice exposure. With what you've been climbing lately, go out and get on that thing!

It's definitely on the list for this year. Thanks again, Jeff.

Nice photo of Underdog taken somewhere from the right side of Main Cliff. Matt Levine on route, Jay Morse with the photo cred.
