Did this climb today after not getting on it for a couple of years.

There is a general loosening of the upper wall on this side, while the left side still seems solid. Flakes were coming off - and more disconcerting - some of the glued holds seem to be loosening and showing cracks in the rock/glue connection. This makes the committing initial sequence to get to the poorly-placed bolt to the right of the block even more intimidating and potentially dangerous.

Just be careful - we hope to get out and check this route more thoroughly in the next month or so.
