As widely reported in mainstream media, the iconic block perched precariously at the top of Lord's Rake on Scafell in the Lake District for nearly a decade has collapsed. The debris remains in the rake and Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team have warned climbers and walkers to beware of loose and falling rock when visiting the area.
Commenting on their Facebook page, Wasdale MRT explained:
'The perched block at the top of Lords Rake has fragmented and is now in bits close to where it was stuck. There are some loose boulders where it was standing. The largest bit looks to be fairly well bedded into the scree. The rake itself is just as loose as ever.'
