The flake just below and left of him was scary but plenty strong to pull and step on. Climb like a cat on it.

That thing needs to get trundled...too bad there are always so many people in the area. I managed to pull the moves without touching it. As solid as it seems, the last thing I want is a 500 pound block wiping my belayer off the face of the earth.

That dagger now has a LOT of play in it. I put my left hand on it as close in to the attached end as i could, for a little balance as I moved past, and the whole thing tipped down and then back up.

I let go immediately, then avoided touching it or stepping on it as I went past. Makes the moves into the corner more difficult, but less likely to kill someone.

DEFINITELY AGREE. That Flake should be removed. From pivoting back and forth too many times over the years it is now about to come out. Fairly certain it could be removed with a crowbar, and roping off the entire base area. In the meantime, don't touch it. I climbed by it April 2013, not touching or standing on it, but with only a very light touch with my hipps as I moved past, it pivoted about 6".
