Good shot. Do you have any pics from lower down?

I do and they all look similar haha :D I'll upload
some more when I get home. I've got a few of me
on TR when I broke my harness also (i think). I was
pretty sketched on lead so Chris (belayer) wasn't
concerned with two many photos until I got to the
6 section at the top :D

Amazing natural feature - looks like a great climb. Shame that there's a line of bolts
up a crack - is it protectable with bongs and large cams?
Also a shame you can't see what the climbers doing...

Shortman - you should go and throw your carcass
at it!

Martym - I'm sure you'll find that after you've
climbed it, you'll be glad that the bolts are there.
The only place you fit a cam in there is a 6 at the
top and it's almost tipped out. Unless you've got
Valley Giants! :D :D

Martym I agree about shameing line of crack bolts.
Even if it needed bolting, it looks like one or two too many, specially given out of
Africa BA mans precedence setting as per other thread posts on Chocky.

Foreshortening or are the bolts getting closer together towards the top where you’re
less likely to hit the slab if you fall?

If the bolts are legitimately required, then how does that fit with the looks like bold
unbolted slab approach?

You'll have to go and climb it and find out for
yourself.

Or you can just play keyboard warrior. But hey, who
am I to judge what you think? ;)

No worries internet guy or woman! I'll do that just
for you. Oh hang on....no I won't :D :D :D

And stop half starring handsome Chris's photo. He
tried really hard. He's my special friend!
