Anyone know about the block coming off Odin? 31-Jul-2017 At 1:03:08 PM Eduardo Slabofvic
I surprised that so many people are surprised that rock is falling off at Frog. It's a fault line with lots of choss on the top.

There must be dozens of routes at Frog where the crack at ground level is hand sized, and it's an off width by the time your at the top. I'm interested to see when a whole pillar goes. Note all the scree below the cliff line.

With Oden, it was a bit of the roof/overlay that fell of. Let's make a sweepstake on when the next bit of that overlap is going to go.

I climbed there quite a lot about 30 years ago, and falling rock was common. There was a well known climber of the time (who's name escapes me at the moment - so my apologies to their friends and family) who was found dead in his car at top suffering a head wound (I think).

Back when I climbed there, there were only a small handful of people, now it sounds like its chockers full of people. Falling rock, either from loose blocks or off the top must be horrid.
