Bouldery start in 'cave' followed by fun 5.9 climbing. Finishes with steep pumpy climbing on final headwall off the ledge. 5.9 route to the right (BLM-2) crosses this route and shares a few bolts. May 31, 2017
The sidepull flake at the end of the route is now loose. The whole things has cracked and is free.

Be really careful because it's a pretty big chunk that will almost certainly kill anyone unlucky enough to be below when it blows.

It adds a couple of grades to try and avoid using it because it's a fairly critical handhold and then an equally important foot to get you up and onto the final stretch.

You may want to belay off to the side as far as you can. Jul 17, 2017

Agreed with Bruce, there is a very large loose block at the top of this route that is not worth testing... You can veer left once on the top ledge and finish on the end of BLM-2 without any difficulty. Jun 28, 2018
