2020 UKC thread noted: "The consensus was that all the boulders are out when the level is 10m, though a lot of climbing is possible at say 11.7m."
Current level here: https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/station/5210
There has been a landslide and the minor road on the west side of the resevoir is closed to cars entirely. It's possible to park on the north side of the A591 and walk in (

I think you've filed the Armboth Boulder info in the wrong place, Chris. The Marlin boulder is down on the lake shore. The boulder in your topo photos is up the hill opposite the Armboth car park. It was described by Alfred Wainwright as the "W Boulder" many years ago, but "Armboth Boulder" sounds fine to me.
Great cleaning job btw!
