βeta: So the good news is the lose block is no longer there, in pieces at the bottom. Would have taken a bit more care if we'd checked out this page beforehand. Had to take a trip to A&E but no major injuries thankfully.

βeta: Half way up second pitch has very loose block, went to move round it and it shifted, pushing me off. Think it'll fall soon. Please watch out!!
