Amazing photo....looks like he is gonna pendulumn into the belayer.
Looking up at this pitch from Freeway you realize just how overhanging and brutally hard this corner must be. I would guess that his rope is actually pretty close to vertical.
The route is STEEP and leaning, so you don't come close to your belayer...she had bigger things to worry about, like holding the brake rope while getting slammed into the wall, which is the next photo in the sequence!
Weird action pic, the rope is so bright it looks like it was drawn in with some bogus 1997 software.
