The following has been reported to the Peak Speedwell keyholders and DCA.

JH: The netting holding the debris directly above Leviathan last pitch (alt route) below Tea Rooms has deteriorated badly and become detached on left. I removed several large blocks ready to fall directly onto the pitch but it’s all bulging and not good.

The problems will be dealt with a.s.a.p. but, be warned, JH is very unstable in places and is difficult to deal with so this may take some time. As always, take great care in tackling JH and watch out for loose rock at pitch heads.
