That is the most classic rope behind the leg shot ever... But, at least it's a Mammut rope!

Amazing looking climbing.

Awesome pitch! I'd wholeheartedly agree that the crux is between the cam placement and the flake he is standing on.

This beautiful hand crack leads to a wild finish, the roof visible in the upper right portion of the photo. This shot is a bit repetitive of an earlier post but look at that beautiful blue Camalot placement. A convenient shelf provides a rest and a chance to slot some bomber nuts for the action ahead. The upper crack is described as "thin" in one guide, but I was glad to find it hand-sized. I thought the hardest part of this pitch was between the cam and the shelf, contrary to the topo. This is a must-do, memorable pitch. Photo by Patrick Clarke.
