|Falling onto any gear before the flare/squeeze would not be good, the large flake/crack you climb flexes significantly. As for the rest of the route, it's excellent rock up a very challenging offwidth. Recommended to save a #3 or #4 for the top portion of this climb.|

|Agree. Use caution mantling into the base of the flare...you'll be pulling on a death block.|

What a masterpiece. This thing is LOOONG. Bring 2 ropes and a will to succeed.
The deathblock is still there and spices up the route. Make sure your belayer is aware of it as you climb to it so they can move over.
My (new) favorite OW in IC.
