The crux may be the whole thing.

I have yet to decide if this will ever be bolted. There are anchors above it for the TR, but you must rap in. The crux move is fun on steep slab with some actual jugs, BUT said jugs are scary loose. A microwave-size flake probably needs to come off. I'm not sure if I want to clean that aggressively, and I'm also not sure what will be left of the route if it goes.

As it is, treat said jug very cautiously: it will ruin your belayer's day.

If I decide not to bolt it, the anchors will be cleaned and patched. Jun 29, 2014

It's a fun variation.

How about leave it until the flake busts loose? But don't intentionally bust it because it adds some spice to the line. Then if it is still doable (probably safer), decide then?

Regardless, I support your decision.

This is fun, and the loose block is still there. At least on top rope you get to look at the climb on the way down, so I got to look at the block before using it. Going to the left near the top may make it a bit easier. I did this, and there are positive holds although some seem a bit loose. Oct 7, 2015
