The very large refrigerator-sized block between the two wide cracks at the start of this climb is teetering. It seems to be pretty well established on the ledge, so I don't think there's any danger of it coming down. But it does rock back and forth if you're standing on top of it, so placing protection behind it is inadvisable.
