Somebody, I don't remember who, recently did the Direct/Direct and told me that that pillar rock formation below the Cows Mouth, (6th pitch, I think), moved 6 inches, when they went around it. That bit has always been suspect. Hope it doesn't take anyone out in the future.
If I was younger and more energetic, I'd go up there and pry it off with a pry bar. You could get a clear view below to check out the base for climbers. Who knows, it might add another 5.10 pitch to the route.
