Squeeze Problems

Your second ate too many pies and canít fit through the squeeze chimney you just enjoyed. There is gear in there he canít reach to unclip. How can chubby get out onto the face slab where he belongs and wait for the haul of shame? What can you do other than tie him off, descend the rope, giggle a bit, then unclip it yourself? Can anybody think of any simple tricks? This can be generalised to other situations where the second canít unclip gear and canít (perhaps physically or safely) re-tie in above the gear, blocking upward progress.

Would this theoretical second have a name? We can all share the giggle if you share the name:)

It's not me but I've been stuck before, more than 30 minutes to make 7 metres :)

I think you need to go through the full cycle of denial, anger, depression and acceptance. Once you've accepted that you're stuck and no one is going to rescue you - you'll find a way to eventually get out.

Whoever it was, did he poop while trying to get unstuck, while being filmed?

One potential option would be to lower the other end of the rope to them.

Pour some water down, it works with stuck cams sometimes.
Come back in the morning when its cooler and try to get them out again - this also works with gear sometimes.
Drop something heavy to help dislodge them.

With Winnie the Pooh they just had to wait until he lost enough weight to push him through the hole.

Drop your pants and threaten to start dropping bombs. One way or another they'll move.

i dont think anyone knows the theoretical persons second name but he does climb with a 13kg rack of alloy exotica.
I know of others who had the same bad dream.
I think that same dream involved others doing vertical multipitch bushwalks and at least one fictitious figure bailed out on a dinner plated death traverse for the 2nd time.

Now as i remember it, you got suck on anger for more than 30 mins.
I'm sure that there is some part of you left in that squeeze and not the bit that got you stuck either! What a trip!!!

I remember that we renamed the climb "outrageous incompetence" after your route finding ability :)
