Gargoyle flake
I decided to have a walk up Bamford Edge to do some trad anchore / gear placement practice. I decided on the bottom of gargoyle flake area as it was quiet and out of the wind. I'd been there around 20 mins when a rock came tumbling down narrowly missing my arm. This was followed immediately by another so I shouted up. A third one came close and seeing an arm throw it I made my way up to find a teenager with what sounded like his mother. There was a slight language barrier but I managed to educate of the dangers and showed them the report from 2022 in the same area. After a short discussion they apologised, assured me that they wouldn't do it again and think about what could have happened. They said that they were trying to get the sheep bellow me to move.
