jonleighton 26/Oct/13 Lead RP

My friend pulled a block off this yesterday - approx 30cm^3 in size. On my first attempt I noticed that the foothold on the arete at the crux was moving, but didn't think it'd come away. Well, it did! While I was belaying. Luckily no one got hurt. So that foothold is now gone, but I don't think it makes the route much harder, at least with the beta I used; I sent it after the breakage.
