The Truth Behind Frosty's Claustrophobic Bivi - Photo #3 of 5

The Truth Behind Frosty's Claustrophobic Bivi - Photo #3 of 5 (view)

By now you should have solved the riddle:

Frosty's Claustrophobic Bivi is a cave. It is about ten feet square, and little less than a foot high. The floor and ceiling are perfectly flat - it's obvious that the block has dropped from above to form the cave. You can't help but imagine the rock suddenly closing down on top of you while you are sleeping, squishing your guts out the front like a bug beneath a flyswatter.

The claustrophobic need not enter - but to a caver like me, the place felt just like home. The bivi is a flat-out belly crawl, and I slithered deep into the back where the ceiling raised just enough that I could (barely) turn my shoulders sideways and sleep on my side.

Tom bivi'd in the middle, where it was completely impossible to turn over! The only way you can flip is to go outside the cave, or back to the enlargement where I slept!

It's photos like this that make the girls run - in the other direction!
