|I'm used to sqeezing DOWN tight slot canyons, but not so much up them. The chimney on P2 was unique and awesome but it did require a lot of effort; it wasn't difficult, just strenuous. It protects well the whole way up if you stay close to the crack. A fall is unlikely anyway as the chimney is so narrow you can just cam yourself in to chill out. It felt like upwards canyoneering!|

|So there we were - sitting on the main drag in Moab hitting that ice cream like there's no tomorrow. A clean-looking grandma taps me on the shoulder with a "Are you loooost?" to my surprised "Huh?". She repeats: "Are you lost?"...to my "why?"...to her "because you are in this town!". More surprise on my part. Grandma continues without pause and with a sour smile: "This town is a hellhole!" I expect some religious spiel to follow but instead grandma walks off down the street bothering no one else in sight.|
WTF was that? Shirley's smiling. We continue to lose ourselves in the vanilla cones for the next 10 minutes when I feel a tap and see grandma's face 2 inches from mine. I nearly fall off the bench as she says: "are you one of them rockers" (grandma points up to rim above town)...."ohhh - yeah?????" I respond. Grandma now really gets in my face. I smell no liquor. "YOU are sooooooo DUMB!!" and "we don't lose too many of them rockers here - more bikers and offroaders; not rockers". I was shocked before, now I'm just fu.king stunned. Grandma turns away with a "You be careful out there!"....
After that we climbed Off-Balanced Rock. For the next two nights I'd wake up in a pool of sweat thinking to myself "WTF?!"
