Cresta Run Caution

Extra care needed in the Cresta Run in Cracker/Boxhead.

We have received a report that a cement-bag sized boulder may be loose and overhanging the narrow rift (with in-situ handline) which connects the Cresta Run down to the Boxhead lower series (near the start of the long route to Lyle Cavern via the Tate Galleries). We advise anyone visiting this area, either coming from or going to Boxhead or It's a Cracker to pay attention and take appropriate care descending or ascending this rift.

If anyone can provide an update please let us know.
