Topic - Rock broken/fall at Back Forst, Roaches

lewismansell - on 28 Apr 2013
Matey fell on a bit of gear on the HVS 5a Japetus Eye on the NW end of Back Forst [Roaches, Staffordshire] yesterday. As he hit the a gear a chunk of rock a few feet wide and a good 40kg or so came off and landed next to him, then rolled over his leg, luckily no real damage. Photos below show where rock came from and the chunk that came off [that is a size 14 foot for scale]. Worth an email to the BMC? Grade probably E1 now perhaps.
