The 'fake boulder' has been placed, with the support of the National Trust, National Park, the BMC, Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter Group and local climbers, amongst others. It replaces a mass of crap, rusty stakes with the aim of cleaning up the site and providing a long term belay solution. |

When i was there early this summer the belay stakes had been removed and replaced by a 'fake' boulder! While great for 'The Crack' and other routes on the left of the purple slab, belays for those on the right are now difficult to arrange.
