As long as we don't start submitting photos of signature holds, or gear placements. Imagine playing "Guess the tat" .

Oh, wait some have already been doing that.

There are some classic gear placements that most people probably know here. I think that would be super fun. I would post some pics, but alas after all this time I still don't know how to do it frown

I'm pretty sure most people could identify that sneaky little green alien at the crux foothold on High E. What about that #1 Camalot on Retribution that everyone says....really? As mentioned recently in another post, the #7 stopper slotted sideways in the keyhold slot on Wegetables is another classic placement. The yellow alien in the brick hold on Balrog. God the list goes on and on. And of course I will never foget the gear at the crux of graveyard Shift!

You must mean the #4 hex opposed with the original size #6 stopper nubbin placement? grin

To add to RR's list of iconic gear placements, the nut in the corner of V3 above the overhang and the offset nut on 1st pitch of Snookey's are memorable.
