That last photo, and one somewhere before imply that the belay is just below and to the right of the roof. Is that so? Here's a shot from '78 or '79 of Hoodwink. Have I scanned it the wrong way round, or did people used to belay to the left as we did (or appear to have done)?

jaaan, I like belaying below and to the right, as it provides a dramatic backdrop for the photos.

Thanks Cragman, I was just concerned that I'd scanned the slide backwards as I have done on a few occasions.

The climber in the pic is linked two pitches together. The belay down and right does provide a striking view of the roof.
