Broken Holds on Slimen Hymen at the Dump on NC 221

It has been more than a year since I had climbed Slimen Hymen. I stick clipped, made the first moves and looked for the jug just past the first bolt. It has fallen off. In fact, an area nearly 2 feet in diameter has come off. I tried to clean the area and move on up. When I tried the most plausible hold, it broke off. I cleaned some more but the only potential hold left at my level of climbing is a hollow sounding flake with a gritty sloper. I backed off and retrieved my quickdraw. I think this climb may well need a new, higher rating. More proficient climbers, please try it out and give some feedback on what you think it should be.

Is this the far right one on the warmup wall? With the huge move to the flat jug?

Yes, Drew, the right climb out of three climbs, an 11a (Voodoo Child), 10b (Vermin), then Slimen Hymen (10a). The jug above the first bolt fell off. I think that it makes it a much harder climb.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
