The flake after the crux (mono and two-finger pocket) is potentially unsound, as it makes noise when tapped. Pull down, not out.

Back it up with epoxy....

It does not remove from the route but is essential to the natural flow of the climb.

I will take care of it in October, when I return to GJ, if it is not done by then.
