The hold for the traverse is now broken and makes the move very different.

One of my friends was the last person to touch the hold and he said it came off with ease... Also said it was a crappy day so lucky there was no one under then...

That flake is so going to fall off. Think of the force pulling down on it and the sun, rain and ice working away on it. I just hope nobody will be on it or below when it happens

The low traverse is just fine, and really fun (read: thoughtful), and it's all there, even though you can't see it. Don't put in gear right away once in the chimney (or sling it long) or you will regret it by giving yourself rope drag and bumming out your second on traverse.
