To quote the words of the first ascentist, ”Apon exploring the overhang I noticed a tight entrance to a dirty chimney (how inviting!). I immediately needed to stuff myself into the hole to check it out a bit” Natural gear (tri-cams and small/ med cams) could be used to protect the pockets. DBC belay.
