Chris McNamara on the last move on the Great Roof on The Nose of El Capitan. This move is mandatory 5.7 with HUGE exposure. Chris is trying to unclip his aiders from the last piece before moving to the anchor which is just out of the frame.

Ha Ha, that's a good shot. I remember that move being just a tad puckery for 5.7.

Can't somebody just keep nailing around the corner of the roof? That may be what I did back in 1972. Where there is grass a piton can grow.
