Did this climb last week and when I got to the top I noticed a couple of big blocks up and off to the right. Looked pretty precarious, so I was just wondering if this is a recent development or is it something that's sort of "been there forever"?

Not having luck posting a picture, so maybe this link will work?

Those blocks have been there for 50 years, probably much longer.

Nice picture. They do look more ominous than I remember but somthin that big will need a fair bit of prying or shaking to come down, we hope.

Your photo makes them look scary. It would be interesting to see if anyone has anything from several years ago. I climb up that way frequently but never pull on those blocks.

If you did, the next new route in that region might be called Mike's Last Pull.

Thanks, was just curious if it was anything new to worry about. Maybe if it stays in place long enough the tree will solve problem...
