Notts Pot (Leck Fell)


Issued: 22 February 2021

18th February 2021; We received a report of a rockfall in the rift between the start of Centre Route and Adamson's Route. To quote the reporter "the rock fall is in the rift at the same level as Centre route start, if you go past Centre route staying at floor level in that rift you come to a corner to the right this is immediately before you climb up into the small aven where the stemple climb starts, the rock fall is in-between Centre route and this right hand corner but in the rift not the aven where the stemple climb to Adamsons route." Those descending Centre and Adamsons are advised to pay particular attention for the next several months.

Update: 9th April 2021: A team have inspected this and found that boulders had slumped on the climb beyond centre route and were poised to drop down the pitch. The loose boulders were removed and the area made as safe as possible. Nonetheless, as some will already have fallen down the pitch and may be perched on ledges down the pitch all visiting groups should continue to be observant for the immediate future.

This warning will expire at the end of the year.



Access to this cave is available to everyone all year round, but must be booked prior to your trip to satisfy the landowner’s requirements for managed access (and out of courtesy to other cavers too). One booking may be made per cave entrance per day. The CNCC has created a simple online booking system to allow individuals to book access to this (and other) caves using an intuitive calendar-based approach.
