Comments: I broke a big hold under the roof yesterday and went for a ride (whee!). Getting to a good roof jam is slightly more difficult now. There's a pretty similar but smaller hold still there, so the nature of the climb wasn't affected too much.

Comments: 3rd bolt is ready to blow, which could result in a groundfall.

Comments: Climbed on 3/4/12. The rap bolts at the top of pitch 11 (just before the 500' of long slabby ramp) have no hangers. Atop pitch 10 (the 5.9 roof) there is one older but solid looking bolt, but the larger one I had come to expect from the 4 previous bolted anchors was missing, and there was just a big hole in it's place. It is possible to make trad anchors here, just don't expect a safe rappel without leaving gear.

Comments: Pulled the previously stuck nut today, but don't worry, the climb is still hard.
