Example of some of the available gear on the tunnel pitch.  One might argue that it is merely psychological, as it is all a bit small, but it makes the pitch feel a bit more secure.

I remember placing a tricam in a pod on the back wall. The pod wasn't the best rock quality though. further up I placed a shit #2 C4 buried off to the right for a grand total of 2 pieces. Feb 25, 2013
Ya. In this picture the pro is way farther to the right than I was. If you follow that line you have to slab climb sketchy slick rock. If you go further back in the cave till you hit a vertical rail which was caked with chalk, after about 10 feet it's possible to get your back on the wall and chimney for almost the entire thing. The cam in the pod about half way up on the back wall is the only piece I had and it was in a super solid pod about 4 inches wide, 1.25 inches tall, and 2 inches deep (black #5 metolius PC fit). The pod flares a little in the back but that cam wasn't coming out. Sling it long though as you are traversing straight left from it. It's not too important since it's your only piece. Feb 13, 2012

fwiw- no pro placed in those pockets could be considered bomber, as the rock quality is not that good on the back wall. May 5, 2011
