The tree was taken down because it had been crushed downwards and was filling the preceeding 20 foot corner of Birds of prey. Most of the roots were broken off, I just couldn't get a good angle to get the last one with the tools we had, so I opted to cut it off at the trunk and come back to deal with the stump later.
Amazingly only one bolt on the route to the left of Birds of Prey was damaged. It was sheared off cleanly, so we climbed that route after we were done, dusting it off and redrilling the bolt. All of the routes on the Eagle's Domain slab will be a bit dusty until after the next heavy rain, but they're fine to climb.

Looks like that root grew behind the flake and may have pressured it off.
It just looks like it would have destroyed anything in its path...
