Description [Suggest Change]
This section of the wall looked good for a few visits. I got on it, it was way loose, and I squeezed up a small crack to safety. On the way down, I was cleaning some gear, pulled my weird rope line to move back to the left to get off a small ledge, and rocks broke. I leapt, pulling a nut, and due to my having jockeyed some gear, my next cam that held me from tumbling down the hill still allowed me to fall almost 30 feet into a boulder field of quartz, rhodonite, and wild rose bushes. It resulted in major traumatic brain injury on impact. I am only here now due to my helmet.

This is on the left side of Equinox (the west side is very loose in places).
Protection [Suggest Change]
Nuts and cams. You may as well toprope project the area first. There is lots of loose stuff.
