ROCK FALL ON CONSCIENCE SLAB, VIVIAN QUARRY



The rockfall has affected the Conscience slab, in particular the area around 'Never as good as the first time' and 'Is it a crime?'. It looks like something has dislodged from above and come crashing down the slab leaving a lot of dust and debris around on the levels below
.

I went up to have a closer inspection during my lunchbreak and to take a few photos. All the bolts look fine and the 'Sweetest Taboo' lower off is still in place, unfortunately the lower off/chain (think it was replaced quite recently) for 'Never...' and 'Is it...' is tucked away above the routes so I can't pass comment on if its still there!!

It would suffice to say that caution would be advised while approaching the climbs...
