On 27/05/2013 a large block became detached on the lower section of 'The Flake Climb', trapping a climbers arm. Required the help of fire service and mountain rescue to extract him. The block was left held up by wedges inserted by the fire service.
Three local notables did their BMC duty and have removed the block that had trapped the chap's arm. 5th June 2013.|
