Crock Pot

Entrance of Crock Pot


To the left of the waterfall in the Waterfall Hole shakehole. Cavers covered by the BCA insurance scheme are welcome to visit the cave at any time, but cars must be parked in the car park, do not block the track at any time.


The pot is very tight, awkward and loose in places, and rescue would be extremely difficult. The lower sections flood completely - do not descend if water is backing up in the shakehole.
