Jordi starting up Chronic

Description 

Crux is near bolts 3 and 4. I'm adding this route, which is in the guidebook, partly to alert climbers to a potentially dangerous loose flake near bolt 4

Location 

A leaning crack between Biohazard and Bubonic

Protection 

Bolts

Warning -- loose flake.
The flake near the 4th bolt is loose, and it could come off if a climber pulls on it unknowingly and hit the belayer.

Wow, when did posting pages directly out of the guidebook become OK?
