Actually I recall it was my foot that was killing me, standing in that aider in a tight rock shoe, toe jammed hard against the face... When you're on a dicey hook you can't get too wild swinging the hammer. Just kind of tap away patiently while your foot goes numb.

Something I'd rather watch than do, which is mostly how I feel about climbing these days...
