It doesn't matter which way I tilt my laptop, I can't recognize this last one. If the hang of her pony tail is any indication, that is some steep ground she's on.

You have to put your laptop on the ceiling, then crane your neck until it hurts. You can actually see some of the unclipped draws hanging down from gear in the crack where she is headed. She's still about 15 feet from the crux in the pic.

The rock certainly looks strange even when corrected for the weird angle. I'll suggest it's at Millbrook?

Wait, unclipped draws? Waz wid dat? A sport climb?

I went up first and pitched off the crux into space, so we pulled the rope. Yes Millbrook is correct. Any guesses on the route?

Shouldn't that photo be rotated right 90 degrees?

I don't know, is there an accepted point of view in a situation where you are looking straight up? Frames of Reference

All I can say is that the cliff face is at 90 degrees relative to the picture frame so that if the picture frame had hinges on the bottom and the top was rotated up it the frame would be flush with the cliff (except that the top of the frame would bump into the overhangs). At the moment the shot was taken she was traversing left but will soon be moving out the overhang almost directly before gaining the face above.

I'm not sure, but you have the additional info having been there that the rest of us do not, so you're assessing the photo a bit differently. It's just that it's kind of odd for her hair not to be pointing down in the photo. I wouldn't say that's an absolute rule, but in general....
