Birds of Prey, block gone
Regarding the loose block on Birds of Prey, the route is all clear. On Sunday morning, a team of Squamish climbers safely trundled a 4m x 4m flake, which had been sitting precariously atop the 2nd pitch of Birds of Prey. The block seemed to have wiggled loose and was resting gingerly on a straining tree. With a look-out on the ground and danger signs and flagging tape blocking the trails, the climbers trundled the block with minimal effort. The falling block took with it the supporting tree. All debris on the pitches below was removed. And bolts on climbs below were inspected and replaced where damage had occurred. The event was captured on video, which will be released soon.
