WARNING - Rockfall in G.B. Cave

I have received a report of a substantial rockfall in G.B. I am told that

“In the region of 5-10 tons of sand, gravel and rock has slipped out of the left hand wall, just below the waterfall. There is a significant amount that has been undercut, but is still hanging high above the climb down. This appears to be very recent, given that the sand has not washed away yet and there was a pretty decent flow.”

Obviously nothing can be done to investigate and, possibly, stabilise this whilst we are under lockdown. It is recommended, therefore, that this area is avoided, including climbing the waterfall until a closer inspection can be made.
