It was a

great route, too. We had two leaders do it, two different ways, but everyone who's climbed the route remembers the mono (or, for little hands like me, two-finger pocket) at the top. It's now my 10a trad lead goal for someday... the TR was too much fun!

That is not....

loose??? I'm a hiker, not a climber, so I don't know. Looks like it would crumble

Nope

it was solid. We climbed at other areas that had similar looking texture that was loose, but these features felt solid enough to be protectable. You can see in the photo that they do give way -- but even as a second I was checking for loose holds and didn't feel any.

Nice shot Chris

Looks like peeling paint. Love the texture, color, and composition of the shot.
