There seems to have been a sizeable rockfall on the upper buttress to the right of the cave. Not sure how recent, looked pretty fresh. Seems to have come off the scooped out area on the lower wall under the overhang. Not sure if any routes went up there, none in my NL book.

Sidenote - the bolts and their nuts on this buttress look pretty rusted (and shiny cathode hangers...). Hard to tell if it's just on surface or more serious yet.
