What's wrong with this picture?

Placing a cam? Slotting a nut? Slinging a tree?

Yeah, a helmet would be a good idea...

Actually, the biggest thing wrong with this picture is that Jesse isn't smoking a cigarette in it. :)

Little feller ,JB, and Overcammed are all correct. Theres still one other detail I noticed. We did wear our helmits. I took mine off when it got hot. After that first pitch we started carring 20 or so slings too. The pitches were nice and long.
I knew I could count on the rest of you for some fun answers.

Are there even two points on that anchor? Looks like you're tied in to one piece. I'm having trouble reading what the rope's doing...

There's two bolts and I brought Al up off them,but yes I was only hooked in with a chain of cams. It's the top of the first pitch of Totem and theres enough ledge there to stand comfortably. the big thing is the helmit. the top of skyline traverse is above and its a 150 foot or more ramp that funnels loose rock onto the Candy corner area. we did it the next day and I understood perfectly about wearing a skull hat at Seneca. Nobody noticed that my backup knot had come undone.
I can't wait to go back to Seneca or somewhere with some great multipitch.Devils Tower would be the shiznickity.

Where's the beer? You need a frosty one at belays. Duh that's a nobrainer.

A bowline on a bight would have been the ticket. Clip a loop to each bolt and equalize. You can do the same thing with a two loop figure eight.

Ahhh come on now piggie Seneca has more than 5.4 mank. Its just that everybody goes there to climb the 5.4 mank! People will line up to do 5.easy to a summit.
I see they are still lopping off mountains in Eastern Kentucky. Electricity isn't cheap.
