Large Rock Fall in Cathedral Quarry

by Stephen Reid A large “fridge-sized” block has fallen out of David Birkett´s route I Got Horribly Sober in Cathedral Quarry (left). It looks as though another block may follow it. For the time being the National Trust are not closing the quarry, but they are advising group users and climbers to avoid this area which includes the Tunnel, and the Long Abseil. More information is available from Jim Loxham at the National Trust´s Coniston Office (015394 41880).
