Went to climb this today, leader didn't get too far as a large flake (the first suspect one on the route) parted company with the rock and now resides on the ground.

No one injured thankfully, but it leaves a scar and other loose bits behind (not that it was massively stable to begin with).

Just a warning to others to be very, very cautious of this route now.

The following shoes the block that came out and the scar it left behind (brown patch just right of centre)...

In reply to slacky: I would stay off this for now, as I imagine all those flakes were keying each other in. Glad to hear you were OK. Have you mentioned this on the slate wiki?

Yes, I've put an entry in the slate wiki and over on UKBouldering.
