Lowering off hard day.
Vince in a 5.13 that has seen no red-points since EFR got the first ascent. But we know, the place isn't really all that great, chossy rock, no views, etc... <br />In the shade: hangdogging my way up Hard day at the Orifice. <br />Photo by Maite Guardiola.
It's a looong way down.

Nice to have an attentive belayer.

Hey, I was getting a kink out of the rope, he hates to be short roped, but he is pretty close to the ledge, I should have been more on top of it. Ha Ha I don't even think it was me, but it could have been. I know it is my crazy creek. Maybe I took the picture?

No way that's you. Notice the full head of dark brown hair. Orafice went up a while ago but not that long ago!!!

Even if it were EFR, he'd still be giving a great belay. That guy could belay you safely while being attacked by rhinos in a lava storm!

The photo was taken by EFR and I'm pretty sure the belayer was Sandor Jozsa. I also think I mixed up some photos when I originally posted this picture and I believe the climber is actually on Eureka.
