OXLOW - Safety Warning (Pilgrim's Way)
« on: November 17, 2020, 07:36:41 pm »
WARNING - Pilgrim's Way 'up' pitch
We have just received a report stating the 'pull-up' system at the entrance to Pilgrim's Way in Oxlow has become damaged and is unsafe to use. This is a wire and ring setup that allows a rope to be installed by being pulled up from the base of the pitch. The wire 'Y-hang' has become damaged at the centre point, so each arm is potentially in danger of failing as it degrades further.
Cavers are advised not to use this system. If it fails with you on it, you could fall up to 6m. DCA will take action when we have replacement equipment to install and volunteers to do it.
