As an interesting footnote to this image...
On the day of the climb, standing at the base, I had a debate with myself. Should I bring the SLR and the heavy glass? Or should I stash that 5 pounds of gear and settle for the point-and-shoot (which at that time, was just 5 MP).

I had never climbed the route, and although I was not planning to lead the first pitch squeeze, I new that I would be leading much of the route above. After several minutes of internal back-and-forth, I stashed the SLR and took the point-and-shoot. Big, BIG mistake. There is no other single image that I would rather have taken with better equipment.

Now, I NEVER leave the SLR. When I returned to climb the Central Pillar I even led the first pitch squeeze with the big camera on my body.

It looks really steep when you flip it upside down like this.
