There has been further rockfall in the same area, one large block has come to rest on the ledge

There's been a fairly large rockfall recently it affects two routes severly - Take away and Pickwick, it may have also affected Delicatessen and Swordfish but to a lesser extent. The grass at the top of the crag appears to have been cleaned up to prevent anyone falling through it.

A pleasant little venue - minor, but peacefully situated with some good, often bold routes (take your RPs, Offsets, Swedges, Peenuts, Sliders, Ballnuts, RocknRollers, filed down handplaced Rurps etc etc). The Pool Wall, small but impressively sheer and clean, is well worth a look - see BMC guide for details (and note the very good Hawkeye is a solo...).
