This is what the flake at the start of P2 did to a party in front of us when the leader fell. The BD @POUND@3 behind the flake did hold, but the rope got a core shot. They bailed.

@mei any idea if the piece was extended or if you think that would make a difference or not? I could see that part still being a bit cruxy for smaller folks or if folks get tunnel vision and just try to crack-master through that bit. Scary! Glad no one got hurt. Oct 9, 2017

@Alexey : this is when the leader did the Option #2 of Pitch 2 as shown in the Route Description.

@John Hovell : I think there is no reason to go up Option #2, regardless whether you extend your protection piece or not. I didn't think he did, but couldn't be sure now.

@whoever rated the photo 3 stars: I posted it as a warning. What does it take to earn your 5 stars? A beautiful core shot? Oct 10, 2017
