here is an example from photobucket, which also you can guess the route.

Climber is Rich Romano who always seems to amaze me by how long he can hang out on small overhanging holds.

small overhanging sloping holds by the look of it.

That route Rich is on doesn't look like anything I would have personal experience with. Yikes!

it is not the sting. Not in the trapps.

thanks for the comment. it could have been a lot better with some proper planning.

Okay, a real picture. Who can identify this one?

You should really do Son of Easy O in one pitch.


Goddammit, how do you guys get them so easily!? I've probably done the climb a half dozen times, and *I* wouldn't have been able to recognize it from the pic!

Okay, I'll put up another one tomorrow. It's not quite as popular a route, so *maybe* it'll last a day.

GO

You need to start off with taking a shot from an angle that you don't normally get when climbing the route. (a.k.a. Talus's shot)

That shot on Son of Easy O is a gimme.

That shot of Rich is hard to guess, but how about Forbidden Zone? I'm not sure that is right, but you could get that angle from across the chasm.

incorrect coppertone.

the setup i had was anchor on top for a rapp line. took one end of the rope about 10 meters from the cliff and tied it off on a tree. while i rapped off the other end i had a quick draw attached to the rope that was tied off on the tree so that it would shoot me away from the cliff.

i kind of wish i had the rope running out and to the climbers left it would have been a nice landscape photo then. oh well
