Rock fall at Bardens

My partner and I were climbing late on Tuesday at Bardens - we got there at 5pm and a few others were just leaving. We were the only car in the car park. We were messing around on Jean Genie when a few big rocks came off the top right above us, falling into the trees. It was pretty scary. I shouted up - no response. Then a bunch more came down and I yelled again that there were climbers below. Provided a good excuse for my climbing but seriously was not the pleasant evening we'd had in mind. We went to have a look around where the bouldering is but didn't see anyone. Kids? Natural fall? Roos? Just to put it out there to be aware that rocks can come down! I've experienced this twice at York too recently. We always wear helmets but that wouldn't have helped much if we'd been hit...

Quite possibly lyrebird if they were big rocks. I had a goat send some down above me at the noisy place also.
