way physical. i haven't climbed a squeeze chimney in a while, and i was pretty rusty on it. i felt pretty whipped for the rest of the day. unfortunately i didn't see the bolt from below, and felt much mental discomfort. you can get decent gear through the start by using the left flake, but you will want to use really long runnders to keep the rope off the knife edge.

great job kw, henceforth if i see your initials on a plaque i will feel much intrepidation.
