What is causing routing loop?

In the process of setting up a frame relay link with a vendor.  Connectivity was finally worked out but now appears something wrong with routintg.

We can ping from My laptop to Vendor router.
When vendor performs a tracert from his side to my router it begins to loop as shown below.
I have included the sho ip route for my router and the ip route command setting.
Vendor claims my routing is set incorrectly.
For clarity each section is section off with asterisks.

Question: What is causing the looping?

Doesn't make any sense that your router would use the default route when the destination IP address IS the router.

Can you post the config of your router?

This is certainly strange.

What happens when you do a trace from your router using the 192.168.177.1 as the source address? Does it still loop?

Able to get the routing table of the vendor router?

Finally got the vendor to spend some time debugging this.  Turns out their routing configs were not correct.
Everything appears to be working now.  My next step is to introduce the firewall and ACL's.  If I run into issues... I'll be back...

Thanks for your time.
