Update: I ripped the "problem" boulder down at the end of last season. It is not an issue anymore and the climb is unaffected. It made quite the noise when it hit the ground. Jun 23, 2008

I think this is totally appropriate. It would be tragic if it actually came down on someone. Jul 25, 2007

Thats what I was thinking. No crowbar needed though. Just one good pull and its gonna come right off. Next time I hit up this area, I will rip it down. Jul 25, 2007

I'd say to launch it. Make sure there's nobody below and give it the old crowbar. Jul 24, 2007

I'd like to hear what people think about that problem boulder. It's pretty big and could kill you if it landed on you. If you tried to pull up on it, it would fall on your chest and push you to the ground, crushing your chest. If you somehow missed it, it would pummel your belayer and continue it's way down about 50 ft until if hopefully hits something and stops. It's very dangerous and I'd hate to hear that someone got injured or killed by it. If they dont come on hear and read that it's loose and to avoid it, there's a good chance of the badness happening to them. What do you think about pulling it down safely to avoid an injury or death?
