Nylon Boy

Description 

Fun and athletic.

Good flakes lead upwards, with dynamic moves on steep rock, to a reachy move right for a two-handed flat hold - welcome to the crux (and final) move.

Location 

Just south of the northwest corner.

Protection 

Pads and spotter.

That would probably significantly increase the grade..

Couldn't have said it better, was scoping it out for a long while yesterday trying to not use the flake and it was indeed hard. The flake has two pretty gnarly cracks running through the base that look to be about to join and the hold sounds hollower than my head cavity so- pretty scary. Also there's a new chipped hold on the back of Cap that makes the once very fun and challenging slap move so very pitiful. Really sad to see all the significant, maybe even avoidable, "adjustments" to Stoney this year.

Update: The flake may just be slowly dying, I've seen it get used quite a bit by the locals since seeing it X'd and using it myself for nylon boy; they seem totally cool with it. Big rain coming tomorrow hoping the problems keep their holds and the chipper keeps his chisels at home.
