Pitch 7. The narrowing 5.9 squeeze. The crux was exiting the squeeze. Both Ryan and I managed to get out helmet stuck while reaching in for gear at the top (we both had the more bulky foam type) and experienced a couple slightly panicked seconds trying to free our head from the slot (I don't even want to think of the consequences of slipping while your head is wedged in there!). So if you have a foam helmet, it might be a good idea to take it off for this pitch.
