Hello all, climbed at lqp last night on the main slab, lhs on a route called shelf life. I got to anchors and a large rock came down and nearly missed me and just missed gareth belaying below. Coastguard were doing some training and saw some kids around where rock came down, but theyd scarpered by time gareth got up there. 
So take care and eyes open if you climb there.Shelf Life (E3 6a)Shelf Life (E3 6a)

Nearly hit you rather than nearly missed you I hope?

Err, yeah, nearly hit me! Doh.

Very scary to witness this from further right on the slab. Never experienced this in Torbay before personally but very worrying, Ollie and Gareth were extremely lucky.
