A significant section of the rock face situated almost immediately above the pool that is regularly used by divers collapsed early on Monday morning (4/11/13).
Barry Davies, Gwynedd Council Maritime and Country Parks Officer said:
“Following the very wet weather we have experienced over recent days, it is estimated that approximately 110 tonnes of slate has fallen from the rock face.
“Council staff have placed security barriers close to the collapse area in order to draw attention to the danger and we would advise climbers to avoid the area at the moment. We will also be closely monitoring the remaining part of the quarry over the coming days.”
