Looking Through the Poison Pill

This thing had me a bit worried. It said A4 expando on the topo. When I got up to it, it was a fairly normal-looking though awkward flake. Was it A1, or was it A4?

[It's all A1 until you fall. - Tom]

There are two ways to look at an expanding flake - you can look from below, or you can look from above. Believe me, it always looks better from above!

It might look innocent enough in this photo - check out the cams and the ground six- or seven-hundred feet beneath - but this bastard still packs a punch, as you are about to read.
