Great shot, but I can't help but notice the belayer's bent-over position. I'd be hitting the Ibuprofen pretty hard in the evening if I had to belay like that. (Yea, OK, so maybe that's why I don't climb 12+)

When I first looked at the photo, I thought the climber was ascending an arete with a ramp and corner to his right. It's a nice illusion.

Think I was leaning over to offer encouragement, I would be broken if I had to belay like that. The pitch is hard enough....
