Loose block and Arrow Final

Post by wravenant »

Hi guys

On the second to last pitch of Arrow Final, just as you are about to top out on the large grassy ledge below the cable station before the last pitch, there is a rather large loose block in the gully.

I was not able to mark it or take a picture, but please take care, if you pull on it, it will go.

TM is a no-bolting area. so i used the laces from a climbing shoe i found at the base to tie the block down.

Works for me :cheese:

Willem, seriously though... how large is 'large'? Can the block be 'easily' maneuvered to the top or will it need to be trundled?
