This is the flake above the pitch 1 belay station. The vertical crack is new, and shows how a large chunk of granite has essentially broken from the mountain and is currently maintaining position due to friction. If you put a large camming unit behind this flake and fall on it, the force could easily send this slab crashing onto the belayer below, tree ledge, then the base of several other climbs.
