Cool looking piece of rock from a distance, but many of the crimps are disappointingly chossy with awkward rock right at your back. Personally, I think the choss should be ripped off back to solid rock since they are going to break off anyway. I resisted the urge though they flexed like crazy under bare finger pressure since it is you guys' project.

No one has really pulled on this yet Mark. In fact even feeling one of the hold caused a break early on. I agree that the crimps at the beginning will definitely need to break before it actually goes. The rail further out though seems solid.
