Yeah, looks like it's just scathed the very end of magical mystery tour part 1. Don't think it's much harder to top out a bit earlier though.

On the plus side looks like there's potential for a new cave traverse linking parts 1 and 2 ;)

Just as the guide is going to print (I believe)...

Magical Mystery Tour Full (E1 5b)   Berry Head (The Old Redoubt) It looks like the exit to the Blue Grotto (and Blue / Green Grotto cave) have collapsed.

This is part of MMT part 2. I would think that MMT Part 1 (the popular section) is unaffected.

The last couple of times I've climbed MMT 1 in reverse with the SDMC we started at that entry to the Blue Grotto - the last time was in Sept 2017.

Thanks for the info. The guidebook team were aware of two other rockfalls between the Great Cave and the Promontory, one of which may make escaping from The Promontory hazardous. We have been refused access to check until the birds have flown so the guidebook will just carry a warning.

These new falls have taken out the start of Yard Trimmings (F6b+) which traversed into The Blue Grotto Cave from the right as seen in the photo. It is harder to tell if the left side of the cave traversed by Magical Mystery Tour (extension or Part 2) is affected from these pictures.

Whilst the guidebook is looking  finished we are waiting on adverts and some tweaks before it goes to print, so you'll be waiting a few more weeks.
