This isn't going to win the attentive belayer of the year award. Sometimes the subject has to suffer for the photographer's art.

I get ya. You guys are just linking to the pictures. OK, here's a route that's both obscure and convenient.

Here's my contribution. I might have been offroute though, once I got to that point I couldn't see where I was supposed to go.

ooo, sundance, good call! Is that right, QTM? The "dance" climbs are all really enjoyable and worthwhile, IMHO.

That's about how I like to be belayed. For real. I hate rope and hate it being tight. A fall there is nothing but air and the more rope, the softer the catch anyway.

Plus, the leader could always speak some french and grab the piece if trouble was a brewin.

except that on a traverse, a hell of a lot of force can be generated in a fall, and could torque out a cam, no?

Okay, one more today. Also easy, and unlike Dawn's, NOT convenient:

I'm not sure what the name of that boulder is actually. If Pebbles is the one near Jackie/Classic, that's not it.
