Anyone ever try this technique?
it involves jamming your tight fist deep into a crack and holding yourself there til you find another handhold, hopefully another large crack or cavernous handhold. I saw a guy almost lose his hand doing this....

Is it too late to 'pull out' of the SR house?

So thats what happens 'deep' in the woods of Maine.

What's worse is when you get your whole leg in there and it gets stuck. All you can do is shimmy, shake and twist. Off-widths are an entirely different animal...
How many climbers do we have around here?

Ohhh! your "out there". I've tried it.. most find it very painfull/uncomfortable but with the right skillz it's alot of fun. Also the more you do it the easier it gets every time after.
