I usually wear rock shoes, but the feet were big and I didn't feel like changing shoes as it was the end of the trip. This is just past the crux on Squeeze the Cheese.  That's me doing the undercling a few years ago.  Hanging out by one of the caves.  Fun undercling section towards the highway saide of box canyon.
