Into the squeeze! Pitch 1 of Community Pillar route - a tight squeeze chimney. This is my take #3 or 4. Already the helmet and the large cams are hanging on the last piece. I wouldn't get thru. till I got rid of the whole rack, all the draws, and eventually my wallet. It only took me about 5 attempts and an hour to get thru. Good times (Apr. 2, 2006).

I enjoy enjoy a good offwidth or chimney as much as the next man, but you guys are crazy!

Thanks Martin :)

I thought that if we just got thru. the squeeze part, we'd have good climbing. Instead, the climbing above had some scary sections.

Looks fun, not for the claustrophobic it seems. Almost like a caving picture :)

lingering, painful memories of a cave named Frustration Pit, for all the same reasons your photo and description give. Great shot.

Thank you very much Moni!
Yeah, it was not that fun at the moment but now, that I've been working for last 4 days, I think it was AWSOME FUN :)
Time changes one's point of view I guess :)
