Unfortunately there is a lot of terrible and loose rock above the first pitch between Deathwatch Beetle, and The Lute. Without the loose rock being marked it's going to be pretty hard to identify and unless it's positively identified I cannot see people spending the time to set up a clearing operation. Regardless, there wouldn't be a clearing operation during a peak period, there are too many people about.

It's just not possible to remove every poised block on the cliff. And some things are so big that attempting to remove them is not justifiable. They would cause terible damage and may destabilise other things.

It's definitely worth reporting things - a comment on TheCrag would be a good thing. Make people aware.
