Climbers on Strawberries, viewed from Shadrach buttress

BMC has been warned of a very large unstable and dangerous block on the route Shadrach at Craig Bwlch y Moch, Tremadog. It is strongly advised that the routes Shadrach and Brothers are not climbed.

Instructors from the National Outdoor Centre at Plas y Brenin have identified a very large loose block below the pinnacle on pitch 2 of the route Shadrach at Craig Bwlch y Moch, Tremadog. This is also shared with the other classic VS route, The Brothers.  It's highly likely that the reported large loose block may be the the support for the even larger pinnacle of Shadrach. 

Until this report can be verified and the rock is formally inspected it is strongly advised that climbers avoid these two routes.
