Take a look at this photo, I placed a yellow alien after I exited the traverse so my second would be forced to follow, it that the block that fell off?

i never placed gear behind that flake... i always protected high in the crack to the left then pulled the traverse...
as for forcing your second to follow it, i cant stand the chimney grovel and much prefer the high traverse... if that is the flake that ripped off i might not be doing this route as much due to the fact that thats my favorite move on the route...
i hope what was left behind is doable, some new hard moves up there might be fun... Jul 16, 2007

Come on Lee, that grovel is a right of passage that we should all celebrate (or pretty much hate every time, which is kind of the same thing). ;-) Dec 2, 2018
