17-11-13 The loose rock bridge has now either been taken down or has fallen down as there is nothing but a sheer drop !!

Statement from BMC website: There is a very loose area of overhanging rock between the Grey Slab and Red Wall. The National Trust are currently (Sept. 2013) working on this to remove a hazard and this will affect access to several routes for a short time (see details on site).
See info below from NT.
"On 7th and 12 August steps were taken to remove a dangerous section of unstable rock near Grey and Red wall, to the east of the harbour entrance. There is still further work needed to completely remove the boulder ‘bridge’. Temporary signage on site diverts walkers around the affected area and also details climbing routes that are affected."

Block isn't going to come from the wall anytime soon - just be aware of it.

Just a heads up - theres a wobbly block in the all lines engaged/ sea rider area just above the diagonal crack, looks like a great hold till you grab it! doesn't look like it can be pulled off at the moment as i gave it a good shake - will have a closer look in two weeks and see
