I noticed a lot of fresh rock-fall in that area while descending via the Chapel Pond Gully this past weekend. Seems that whole area is a bit less stable than usual. Extra caution is advised.

In some past winters, I've rapped through the area between the top of Chouinard's and the top of Tilman's (the "diagonal rappel"). Everything was frozen in place, but there were a lot of nasty looking very large loose blocks. I would not go into that area in summer; I would expect stuff to continue to fall off there periodically.
