Used a #11 hex to back up the chock stone at the top of CCK. Could not get it out. Quit after 1/2 hour. It might be part of the cliff for now on...
Let me know if you get it out.

Off topic - I once found three pink tricams on that route, each buried on top of the other.

For future reference, sometimes what is needed is a fresh pair of eyes. I remember working on a nut for half an hour and getting nowhere. I climbed up, my partner went down, and he got it out in about a minute.

One trick for big nuts that seems to require a bit of lateral thinking:

You can run the nut tool *through* the hollow nut, creating a lever.

Anyone want to claim responsibility for getting it out?
