|Last season a hold broke at the beginning. There is an obvious scar that remains, with chalk around where the hold used to be. I believe this problem is significantly harder now, but I don't know. Would appreciate feedback on the grade from recent senders.|

That wasn't the first hold to break on this one. There was a crimp up high on the left side of the arete that broke a few years ago too. The only things keeping this one from being 4 stars is the exfoliation and friability of the some of the small edges near the top. If the breaking/friability of holds is over, this one might be worthy of 4 stars.
