Ah yes, Thank God Ledge. Been there, done that.
Well, not quite that....I seem to recall having a series of cams at 3 foot intervals in the crack at the back of the ledge.....
Brilliant shot.

You didn't copy one thing about the Alex Honnold photo; you didn't tilt the camera to make it look steeper, and that you were therefore close to levitating :-)

I crawled along it with jam stuffed down the crack at the back of the ledge. VERY hard to ignore the huge drop as you are looking straight down it!
Chris Craggs - 24/Aug/10Report
Chris why jam? Never heard of Jam being used in this situation before.Also any particular type of jam.
The picture is just ace.

another awesome snap mate. Not sure I could pull that off ten feet from the deck never mind that high.
Take it easy kiddo!
