Description:

Accommodation: 4

Rockfall Cave is a quaint little overhang with a level dirt floor, capable of accommodating about 4 hikers.  It overlooks a small, secluded valley, and a tarn is just a stroll away.


The cave gets its name from the very prominent rock-fall at the end of the cliff line behind it.

COMFORT

The cave is comfortable, with most of its floor area being usable (the upper section may become damp in mid-summer).


3
WATER

There appears to be a reliable source of water, supplied by a small stream near the tarn.  There is another small stream higher up the valley, but getting there involves a walk over fairly rough ground.


3
POOLS

There are no real pools in the area, but the tarn allows for a good wallow if you don't mind tadpoles for company.  The tarn is poorly flushed, so do not use soap or shampoo, or you will kill off its natural occupants.  Soap and shampoo should never find their way into rivers and streams anyway.

SHELTER

This is a south-facing cave, so rain can drive in under the overhang in foul weather.  The slightly raised ground level in front of the cave provides some shelter from the wind.

OUTLOOK

The valley and tarn are picturesque, and a short walk of 50 metres or so will put you on top of the cliff overlooking Anondale farm and Kamberg.  Take great care - the cliff is about 100 metres high!
