That looks like you're fairly far off route- the correct route in the tunnel is in the 5.3 range and there are no cracks whatsoever nearby. I could be wrong, though, as this photo doesnt give me much to work with on where exactly in the tunnel it was taken.

I have to agree. Given the difficulty of the rest of the route you should be comfortable climbing the tunnel without gear as it is pretty easy.

I usually go a bit left of where that photo was taken. There is gear in the wall behind you too...

I climbed this 2 weeks ago. I put a cam in a pocket which is probably the same as the piece in this picture coming out of the ceiling on the left.

If you walk to the back of the tunnel, you can climb straight up easy ledges to the piece pictured here in the back wall (a bomber #1 C3 in a pocket), thus eliminating the need for the first three pieces placed here. The #1 was the only piece i felt i needed to get through the tunnel to the crack.

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

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.

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.

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.
