/ Rock broken/fall at Back Forst, Roaches
I think it was E1 before that for all but giants! Shame another excellent climb had broken...was the pro a cam?
Yeah. BMC guidebook says HVS.
Presumably there's one gear placement fewer, and at quite a useful place. Is there an alternative?

. . . I always come in from the left, across and up the wall, and since I've only ever soloed I haven't looked for gear placements. It did register with me that there was a hold missing, but I reached for the lefthand juggy hold and up. It's on your watch, so you'd best get up there and check it out :-)
