Rock: Deteriorating rock quality

When I was climbing the route (monkey in the jungle) yesterday, I ripped a 80kg rock flake off the wall between the 5 and 6 bolt. Luckily I didn't clip the 6th bolt before the rock gave way because my rope would of been cut or damaged. I didn't put much pressure on the rock also. Climb with care at frog pond and check rock quality before climbing.
