How do we know it fell out by itself? As opposed to someone tossing it off some rainy off-season evening and not telling anyone? Apr 20, 2014

Well, the block fell out---fortunately not while someone was yarding on it as in this picture. The fact that it just went one day confirms that the warnings about not pulling on it were justified. Thank god no one got hurt.

Meanwhile, this photo is going to go into the Annals of How Not to Climb on Real Rock. Jul 23, 2013

i didn't think that block was too bad (although i DEFINITELY wasn't yarding outward like that, yikes...). i thought the pancake flake above was a bit unsettling as it was hard to not pull out a bit on it. Oct 5, 2009
