At what point do we have to signpost every loose rock on a climb? KP was literally a quarry, just exercise some caution..?

A quarry that was no doubt thoroughly barred down at closure of quarrying operations, which was a long time ago, and which has had HEAVY and increasing climbing traffic since. In spite of which (or because of which?) bits continue to fall off at not infrequent intervals. Some of these bits have been big enough to kill anyone who happened to be underneath. Caution and awareness of local environment required ALL the time.
