Carefull with this area because it is still being cleaned up. Large rock fell from Flesh and Blood a few weeks ago and destroyed the bench in front of it. Belayer happend to be sitting on the bench a few minutes before the boulder came crashing down and luckily missed the boulder bashing his brains out.
