DANGER:<br>
<br>
near the start of the route there is a large loose rock that makes part of the mini-roof (look for chalk-marked X).<br>
<br>
DO NOT USE THIS even though it's tempting for hands and feet.  with just a little bit of force the rock flexes and will eventually separate. <br>

it's easy to get past this section without relying on it.

Thanks Steven, for the warning.

I wonder though if some people might mistake that "X" for an arrow, like a tic mark, and grab there.

Perhaps it will just require a crowbar to remove. May 24, 2016

Climbed this route about a month ago, didn't see this feature it must have pulled off. My buddy pulled a flake off close to the ground.. be careful out there! Sep 1, 2017
