The following warning has been posted on the DCA website:

SUICIDE CAVE: Winnats Pass. !Movement in first boulder slope!

There have been recent reports of movement in the large cracked slab directly above the crawl beneath the boulder slope just beyond the entrance chamber. This lower route is well used by novices and others since it avoids the pitch at the top of the slope. In the interests of safety this route will be temporarily blocked pending a long-term solution to the problem.

The lower crawl in Suicide Cave has now collapsed completey and is no longer accessible.

The pitch route is fully accessible to all who want to visit the further reaches of the cave.
