I've never been on the route before today, but one of the crucial holds that i could see is loose. i could feel it bend as i started to crank on it. It is the like quartzite horn thing just as the crack dihedral overhang thing starts to go off to the right. Has anyone who has previously done the rote noticed this recently? it was pretty wet in there when i was going for it so i dunno if that affected things.

For Pete's sake, DON'T PULL ON IT! It might come off!
Then where would people be?
