Doesn't exist in the ACA or thecrag anywhere. I seem to remember Kieran saying he'd put all the route names into the ACA so I don't know if you've got the route name correct?

I can think of three things you might be talking about:

The squeeze problem - the boulder squeeze problem at the base of the bard buttress and tiger wall along the road. Not that hard to find.

Scorpion crack - also not that hard to find, look at bluff major from the squeeze problem. It's the fist crack splitting bluff major in two.

Mr Chicken - the squeeze problem that goes behind the watchtower. I can't remember what's on the watchtower crack side but there is a big roadsign on the watchtower chimney side. Climb watchtower chimney and head right at the sign - you'll eventually come out at watchtower crack...or maybe you wont

Where did you hear about it and what have you heard?
Another possibility apart from the others already mentioned is that it's the squeeze section of The Keyhole, used to access the Scorion ledge.

The scorpion squeeze goes under a big boulder somewhere in central gully. I just looked in the guidebook and I'm not 100% sure but it may go under the pinch arete boulder towards the oops boulder.

You mean the Wombat Problem? It's under the boulder in front of Bum Drag. I've been known to send enthusiastic school kids through there and one lot came out bearing something that looked suspiciously like a voodoo doll. Naked, marked in red, pinned, half head shaved, other half dreaded ... all a bit gruesome.

Hmm, not a schoolboy fetish about an outdoor climbing guide/instructor?

they loved it steve! and it fills in some time when they have romped at eskimo nell far too quickl.y

and my head is fully dreaded, thanks rod. I actually suspect it had something to do with the poor messed up guy living at Kitten Wall - he did tell me he was trying to fix some voodoo spell which had been put on him.

You are lucky they didn't find the chicken foot that was used to scrape the other half of the doll's dreads off with!

When you find it, go through night naked feet first while drinking a beer. Thats the fun way to do it!

Wendy, I'm sure we're talking about the same thing. I'm not sure about the origins of the different names (the people who showed me just called it the scorpion squeeze) but perhaps someone more knowledgable could enlighten us.

Must be a vodaphone customer trying desperately to get a signal.
