03 January 2023 - Rockfall reported "I was walking below shepherds crag on Jan 1st, and found what appears to be a very recent rockfall.
I don't know the crag, so can't tell you what route it was near, but walking from the south of the crag it was just before the path starts to drop steeply near the north end.
It was dusk, so I couldn't see where the rock had fallen from (low down, or higher up), but it seemed to have a smashed tree associated with the debris. Main block was probably 2m x 1.5m x 1.5m approx. No idea if routes are affected at all, but I suspect that the area needs to be inspected by someone competent in the area of safety/stability of rock."
Update to follow once area has been investigated.
