3 out of 5 stars beware!!!

I was climbing PATC Lieback. After climbing the crack while transitioning over to the chimney on the left I grabbed a 5 foot by 2 foot slab of rock. It slid 6 inches. After telling my belayer to move to the side I let go and it made a crack sound. I was lowered and ran like hell.
