I heard that rumor too, I was there in February and it was still there as far as I could tell.

The flake mid way up the rout has fallen for sure. Might still be climbable though.

It still goes! Still spooky fun reefing on the remainder of the flake. Another large chunk of the flake fell sometime this winter causing a concerning fracture under the third bolt. It's still worth a top rope at least.
