The Hourglass was certainly known to shift occasionally...Peter loosened it up by underclinging with gusto! LOL

Stevie, it has to shift seasonally, at least. Water, snow and icefall gets behind it from the top and both sides; there are also chockstsones to help in a ratcheting-out effect. Once again repeating, here is a picture showing some crushed tubes and a hex found at the base of the Hourglass the spring after they had been fixed in place for some unusual reason and left behind. This might be Vern C.

Peter- I have been trying to get someone to post a shot of those mythical mashed nuts for a long time! Thanks!

I must have missed it first time around...

I assume that they fell out of the Right Side.

They might have become fixed once the Big Squeeze of the Sands of Time was on.
