Paul Harrison is the author of the well received Climbers' Club guide to the island, and has got in touch with a report of a substantial rockfall:
"Sometime over the winter of 2009 a major rockfall occurred in Starship Zawn, Lundy Island. A number of huge blocks would appear to have 'dropped' out from the heart of the wall severely affecting some of the areas finest routes.
A big section of the second pitch of Solaris has disappeared although Apes in Space would appear to be unaffected.
Dave Pickford's Millennium Falcon has vanished into a black hole, whilst Nick White's visionary masterpiece Araucaria has lost most of its crucial initial traverse and is no longer possible. But all is not lost, Nic Sellers' amazing Amygdala would still appear to be still climbable!"
