CONDITION REPORT 
Huge flake toward the top of the climb is very loose. It has a chalked 'x' on it. Not sure if the climb will become more difficult when it comes off...

Good route, more technical/balancy than strenuous.

Between the first and second bolt, the rope always runs behind a flake/arete. It's easy for the belayer to unclip the first bot to solve the problem, but if your leader takes a big fall, the belayer will get pulled off the belay ledge towards Laid Back and end up hanging in space. Recommend tethering the belayer to the tombstone block on the left.

While climbing this route today, I pulled off a rather large (the size of a half loaf of bread) chunk of stone from the second to last undercling near the top. While I think this makes the move a little different, I don't feel it changes the grade in the least. Great route!

As of May 30th, the large flake on the left side of route, 2/3rds up has fallen off. What's left of the flake sounds hollow and there is loose rock and mud. Climb is still an 11.
