A generous starting point I feel. 3&1/2 stars. I know, jealousy is a curse.

Not bad, although he looks like he's not having to apply himself that fully. Framing is
good, could have gone for a larger aperture to reduce the depth if field and make the
details on the ground disappear.

I don't mind the ground detail, but reckon the photo would be worth another star if rotated 90 degrees to the right... ie vertical format.
I like the expression of concentration and captured hand movement in the photo.

gfdonc, you've titled the pic "rolling the dice".
What's the story behind that(?), as there appears to be a runner not far below his feet (half a krab on far right of frame), so the issues I see are possible rope-drag and possible rope running over edges? ... and if that's the only piece of pro, then another issue would be only having one bit of pro between climber and the deck.

It's a committing move, hence 'rolling the dice' and hoping that next hold is good.
As the viewer can see, it is, but H didn't necessarily know that when he
launched.
Also he'd only placed a single 3RP since leaving the crack. That's the gear over
to the viewer's right. Yep, just one small wire between him and a long fall.
