You may, or may not, be aware of a recent report from some of the Blue Peris staff (via Baggy) about the possibility of rock fall within Wrysgan. The original report (16th Jan) says some of Baggys staff heard what they described as a “large roof collapse” suspected somewhere on floor 1, but heard from the far end of floor 2.
Staff from Dol y Moch have had a look around the mine and found what they suspect to have been recent rock fall on floor 2, just to the left of where the climb up from floor 2 to 3 is, and a flake (60cm sq approx) that looks like its coming away from the roof, as well as evidence of some recent fall. They also noticed some possible movement near the entrance to the man-way from floor 2 to 1.
I’ve been away for the last few months, but plan to pop into Wrysgan in the next week or so to have a look. At the moment I’d suggest groups avoid gathering to the left of the handline from floors 2 to 3, and also avoid the area beyond the manway entrance (which is off the blue route anyway). I’ll inform Dave Carlisle at his next visit unless anyone visiting the mine find more evidence of movement.
Thanks to all those who been reporting and checking the mine, please do remain vigilant and report any changes.
