Yep, that's the exact spot, and I've always felt that it was a similar pain to what is described as compartment syndrome, though it would seem that chronic compartment syndrome would probably be a problem more often than this seems to come up, i.e. I don't get it in conjunction with things that are utilizing the calf as much as things that dynamically stretch the calf (with the possibility of the impact of the hamstring also being an issue, which isn't as prevalent in regular squats for me)

I'm going to take a couple of weeks off of the Olympic lifts and focus on PNF, rolling, heat and self-massage in the interim and report back when I introduce the lifts back in.
