|It appears that there has been a large rockfall in the area of this route as there is a massive scar on the gully up to the large tree. I have not been able to climb it yet and due to closure could not get close enough to tell if this actually affects the route. Anybody know anything about this?|

To answer the above - it is hard to say. The corner up to the large pine with the sling on it (which is unusable, but I was soloing anyway) is not too bad. beyond that - there are good and bad sections of rock. The slabs to the right side of the corner that reach the top are pretty friable and lichen-covered. At the very least, exercise caution, but you can climb it, even solo.
Just FYI - there are far better routes in the Flatirons. Those being almost any you could possibly pick. This was and still is a pile.
