/ Rockfall at Symonds Yat
I wonder if the cold weather and freeze-thaw has losened up some of the rock. Just a word to encourage caution.
Seriously though, glad your friend is okay. The limestone can be a treacherous mistress.
Who's mistress are you calling treachorous?!
Which route was that?
This is a common occurrence each Spring at any limestone crag. The freeze thaw will have loosened any iffy rock at places like Symonds Yat. Generally I'd always take care when climbing on Limestone for loose rock, but at this time of year after a hard winter, even more so.
