Chief, I did come mighty close to shitting my britches. Right after I made it to the chimney and had a rest stance on top of a flat-topped chockstone, I dropped 'em and let loose, not a moment too soon. My guts were entirely woozy and ready to go at that point. It was nice to feel lighter afterward.
Other chimney details I left out: A couple hundred feet down I found an ancient rusty sardine can... maybe someone had ascended that way once, or maybe it had fallen off the top. I also found a dead squirrel. "Wow," i thought, "even naturally sure-footed creatures die here" and I gave it an honorable burial with a small cairn.
