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.

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.
