What I love about running is you can meditate while running. It's a peaceful place.

Al doesn't look anything like Manson. He was a bit rough looking after 3 days of trad and 3 Seneca approaches but Manson? nah. There's two more things wrong.

its a fake, the background was photoshopped in, the rock is actually an expanding foam shaped to look like real rocks.

looks like someone ran out of gear and had to rig something up with what he had left!

Single placement used for an anchor instead of 2 or 3.....
