My friend Chad and I were at Echo last month, and noticed that the tree in the crack had fallen, and was pinned by it's own roots. We left a notice on NEClimbs, and last I was there, it had been removed.
The only problem is that the root and a couple feet of trunk are still protruding from the crack; the result is a giant spike of death ready to impale anybody who falls from above it.
Would it be appropriate to go with a saw and remove it?

I doubt the forest service would mind as long as you informed them of your intentions. A lot of forest rangers climb so I'm sure they might facilitate the removal or grant you some special permit.
