Does anyone know if a hold has broken off of this route? I climbed it about 6 months ago and had to bail right around the bolt because I couldn't find a hand hold to advance. The arete felt much harder than 5.10c because of that.

@NoseyTim Not that I'm aware of. there's a bomber hold that's hidden (had to throw for it) near the bolt. I climbed it in October of 2015 and I've had some buddies tell me they climbed it in the spring of 2016.
