Looking up at pitch 13/14.  Most of this is pretty casual to free, and awfully awkward to aid.

I remember getting up into that squeeze and wanting nothing to do with it! The 5.11 finger crack to the left was much easier to aid than this squeeze was to free! :)

Tavis,
I believe you are referring to the pitch below this one. On the 12th pitch, leaving the bivy ledge, you climb a brief easy squeeze, then choose either the .11+ finger crack left, or the 5.9 squeeze to the right. Either one of these pitches take you to the exact spot where this pic was taken. I took the finger crack too. It is usually wet.
