Interesting Ryan. Did you climb where my left rope is or the right rope? If you climb up sort of direct past a pin in the corner and a bolt a bit higher it's pretty hard. However just on the left, leading up to the ex flake there's a quite moderate crack - just where my lefthand rope is (as indeed Roger from Ouray suggests in the first comment). Or do you mean right there where I am in the photo? If so, something must have changed. It'd be good to know as I'd like to do FL again sometime. Aug 8, 2014
I thought that this section is now harder than the upper crux 10 or so meters higher, now that the flake is gone. Aug 6, 2014

I thought the 11c section was ten or so metres higher up in a very blank part of the groove. On this lower section, I touched the flake and it moved so when I climbed past it I didn't use it at all and thought it was 11a. If it's 11c now it would suggest that something else has come off with it? Oct 13, 2013
