Chimes of Freedom - Loose Block

The loose block on Chimes of Freedom (E2 5b) at  Mowing Word appears to have got even more worryingly loose. I am not aware how long this block has been in this state.

Just been sent this photo. It might be worth anyone down there with the right gear and knowledge to remove it.

That would be a very satisfying trundle!

The question is: is the removal of the block going to make the route easier or harder. It always seemed a bit strenuous there but I'm not sure!

Urgh. It looks worse than about this time last year, and I thought it looked very dodgy back then. As it is cammed against the roof above, I did wonder if the stuff above might fall down if/when the block goes.

In reply to nikoid:

When I climbed it, I avoided touching the block entirely as it was freaking me out. Felt like a tough E2 (by Pembroke standards).

Get those two guys encountered recently by Emma Alsford at St Govans involved, it sounds like they'd be up to the task
