Is this the route that had one of the anchor bolts sticking out an inch? If so, burly 8+.

Halfway up the dihedral there were 3 loose, stacked blocks that have come down. I'd say the route is now at least a grade harder. Instead of hand jams on the loose block, there are solid fists in the back of a small chimney.

What was a hand crack on loose block is now chimney/fists.
