Recent rockfalls have removed Captain Pugwash & Spare Rib Lorna's orifices is dangerous to climb due to hanging flake. Also many of the bolt hangers on Upper quarry RHS have been removed

There has been a rockfall on the left side of the popular easy wall at the entrance on the top right hand side of quarry. It is obvious and has destroyed a bolted route left of the wall (often used to abseil)and is next to the easy sloping corner goove. If you look there remains a massive detached flake that looks dangerous.Oct 2011.
