He said the rope was just a waste of time.

Solo above 20 mats.
Mark S Davies - 29/Sep/15Report
5 pads.

Err, what is the belayer doing? It looks like "his rope" hasn't been photoshopped out very well.
Giles Davis - 29/Sep/15Report
Or is he holding the mats in place, is that it?
Giles Davis - 29/Sep/15Report
He's a tied in spotter. He's tied in using a gri-gri so he can move quickly. You'll see I've posted a picture of the spotter (dom) leading the route afterwards. Can't believe you'd honestly think I'd take the time to photoshop a rope out!! I suppose that's a fair commentary on what climbing has become. What a shame.

Not a place to fall with any pads ! brilliant , well done ....and great shot.

Have a go at adjusting the colour temperature here, as this is undoubtedly the result of compensating exposure for the evening light. I know that you are trying to get detail in what would normally be quite a dark image if correctly exposed. Good capture though.

Pretty much as it was to be honest. Slightly lifted the curve to bring out the shadows but that's it.

Bloomin' 'eck. That looks terrifying! Good shot.

Are the vapour trails coming from his feet or are they a wee bit higher?
