Loose Boulder on Atlantic Wall, Lion's Head

Good morning to all the trad-loving folk

Please note there is a loose boulder on a ledge on the Atlantic Wall route on Lion's head.

As indicated in the attached image by a red X, it is located under a little overhang on the 2nd pitch, before one scrambles around the corner and completes the route by going straight up.

It is about the size of a large cooler box and is inconveniently located in a position where, if it were to tumble down, would quite likely crush your belayer.
