Incident

The rout contains a travers and there for the assent is different to the decent. This rout is below my skill level. On my way down I placed my foot on a loss rock witch dislodged knocking another bit of rock on its way down (rock fall about 1/2m2 combined). One rock landed on the rope preventing the belayer pacing out any more rope.
