Very much a comment from the armchair, but would it not be possible to throw a long sling and lasso the flake?

@jon read Nathan places a sling over the flake on his ascent - theres a good video of him climbing it on here.

The flake is very loose. My thought was that the one thing worse than falling off at that point would be to fall off and then have half a ton of rock land on you as well.

Wow, quite a solo!

What's the grade for a chalk-free ascent?
Sean Kelly - 28/May/24
Just wow. Has it all this!

I think the rock in the foreground makes this, realising that the camera is just balanced and you're alone up there really intensifies it.

As well as liking the photo, I like the irony with Jim's jimpopeonarope copyright tag

Wow. One of those photos that stops you in your tracks and makes you glad you're not up there
