See UKC Article
PLEASE NOTE: After the severe weather this winter (09/10) there have been reports of lots of loose rock on the easy routes on the left of the crag. In one reported case a very large flake fell near '3 Peaks Bunk Room'. Please be very careful and remember to wear your helmet!
This is great easily accessed crag hosting a number of popular lines, but there have been some instances of rockfall here over the years.
Being aware of the possibility of loose rock, it is worth considering wearing a helmet and taking other appropriate precautions to minimise the risk of any potential rockfall.
