βeta: Yes, very big and unlikely wobbly loose block on right of groove at mid-height, still there summer 2023. It's a bit of a shock that it turns out to be loose: I've lots of experience and placed what I thought was a decent cam under it - would have been extremely hazardous to fall on as might have pulled block with it. So, on discovery, had to precariously downclimb to remove cam. No yarding! Treat with lots of caution.

βeta: It appears this route isn’t finished yet, it might be nice when it’s been stuck together

βeta: As others have noted there is a loose block on the right, at the top of the first wide crack, I wouldn't pull on it, but it felt OK to stand on it. There is a much bigger block that sounds quite hollow, on the left below the move up to the roof, I trod carefully here, if this came down I suspect there could be a significant rockfall. There is also a large block sitting on the ledge on the right arete a couple of meters below the roof, which I didn't even dare to touch. I felt like I was climbing on greasy eggshells.
