Community Pillar

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).

Yikes!

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

Re: Yikes!

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.

nice one ;)

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

Re: nice one ;)

Thank you!
Yeah, I don't think I'm claustrophobic yet I can't say I was totally relaxed in that sucker :)

I have

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

Re: I have

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 :)

Yeah, first the fly zipper broke; then the leg zipper broke; then the waist band buckle came off......thankfully the harness saved the day :)
