CONDITION REPORT 

The trail where you move left from the gully to the wall to eventually access the fixed rope has gave way revealing what looks like the drainage tubes. While it is still possible to get by this section, the dirt will probably continue to collapse.

CONDITION REPORT 

The tree the bottom of the fixed line was tied to has fallen as well. The rope has been cut in the middle and is core-shot near the top. The wooden stairs where the bottom of the rope used to be are getting eroded underneath. This approach really needs some love.
