I guess my concern is if the guys in this photo are hooked to anything at this point (they are in other portions of the TR), but if not, it would take a lot of acclimation for me to do that.
Just want to make sure you know, this picture isn't actually from the standard Class 3 Keyhole route. In the trip report, it's listed as a Class 5.5/5.6.
Yeah, I definitely had a rope in that picture. In fact, it was my turn to be belayed up, so a fall (in theory) would have been entirely insignificant. Hence the photo taking. Unless you're really off route there shouldn't be anything like that on the standard route. I'll add a note to my TR to make it clearer that this is a different route.
