An important looking hold seems to have broken on this one. It's the one the guy's left hand is on in the beta photo submitted by Bruce Morris. This appears to have happened some time ago, and by the looks of it, someone made a (failed) effort to glue the hold back on.
Despite this, the route may still go. I couldn't pull it off but that certainly doesn't mean that one of you hard-persons couldn't do it.
Or it may be that this hold has been broken for a while and the hold in question was of little or no value.
