Watched a couple of climbers chop intermittent holds to this route this morning. They also seemed to think the lower-off was there for hooking with their axes over. Climbed the route in the afternoon. Not ruined but feels much easier now vs when I climbed it a month ago. At least the lower-off looks to still be intact!

Think this is the route we climbed - the short route that climbs directly to the right-hand lower-off on the 4x4 wall. Tried to lead this but needed a couple of rests. Then needed a couple of goes on second to do clean. Tough start to gain the shelf. Tricky blind last placement behind the lower-off - we scratched an arrow to indicate the location.
