I've been up Baskerville Terrace innumerable times over the years and the more I look at that photo, the less it looks like BT.

I guess that's the beauty of a wider angled lens crazy

You made me doubt my memory, but there are a couple pics on MP that make the connection. It's funny, Denis's picture on MP really flattens that pitch out. I always remember it feeling like a shallow corner - maybe my memory is influenced by my photo.

Higher up on the same pitch:

Hey, don't cheapen my victory! I was sure of this one; I was on the route in June. And I have pics showing me in the same locations, shot from the same belay stance.

Well, nicely done. Last year I climbed Baskerville Terrace, Dog-Stick-Ridge, and Yellow Ridge - a various criss-crossing of pitches, and loved each pitch.

Here's a picture of the same partner on a route that has made it's way into this thread a few times already. The only clue I'll give you is this: why on earth would you belay at this "optional belay" with modern-length ropes (I've seen it).

yeah, just throwin' you a bone.

That stance looks much bigger in pictures than it does in person. Camera must add 10 lbs, at least.

If the whole cliff were tilted back so that it matched the apparent casual angle in this photo, then it might be a comfy belay indeed.
