Warning: Suicide Cave Winnats Pass

Correspondent: Pete Knight

There has always been a nasty bit of rock on the wall at the far pitch in the roof of Suicide Cave. Last night (9th October 2017) we attempted to remove this once and for all which successfully redistributed about half a tonne to the floor.

Unfortunately removing this section revealed a lot more loose rock, one section of which is very close to the P anchor or may even contain it. The other section appears to weigh at least a tonne.


We will be issuing safety warnings via social media, DCA and PICA.

The route along at floor level is still open but does have a good selection of new rocks.

The first and second pitches do not seem to be affected.
