Photo looks faked but is 28 rock-climbers posing in unison on two cliffs [6 pictures]

Nov 7, 2012 By Abraham 2

This picture looks like it may be a manipulated combination of many photographs of one person climbing up and then back down the peak called “Ago del Torrone” in the Italian Alps. But, in fact, this photo isn’t manipulated at all. It is over two dozen climbers all in a row, all dangling in perfect order.

The photo was organized by Swiss photographer Robert Boesch. It involved months of planning, 28 climbers from all over Europe, highly-skilled guides, and over 5 hours of climbing and positioning in freezing temperatures.
