"This definitely beats lying in a pile of saw...
MY friend and I both noticed a potential hazard on the last pitch of the edge. At the end of the ramp as you are turning the corner into the hand crack, the downward pointing pinch that is in your face felt and sounded loose. I have not climbed this route with regularity and don't know if this has been this way for long. There is a lot of activity in the drop zone, I'll admit I did not take note if it could make the trail at the base of the wall. Maybe someone who is more familiar with and frequents the route could check it out and if need be take action.

Cheers

On a similar token, is it just me, or has the flake underneath the piton at the p4 belay station gotten noticeably more hollow sounding in the last year? The Blueprint Part Dank

Not the block, the flake that you stand up and grab to set up pulling the corner. It def moved on me this weekend, partner said it made a funny noise when he grabbed it too. Didn't take notice of where it would end up if it came off. As for the pin on the P4 belay, that whole area sounds hollow as hell, tap on anything around there. Clip the tat (2 different stations) and call it good. Ryan Kempf

Was back in the canyon this weekend and it looks like if it broke off it would drop somewhere near the anchor atop the 2nd pitch of Touch and Go. In short, if it did fall it could potentially be bad. Ben Walburn
