During the climb, it's important that we stay together. If you get cut off from the rest of the group, stay where you are until we cam and find you.
This isn't written by a native speaker, and I wonder the line in bold is idiomatic and makes sense to you. if not, how would you say it?

Thank you, queenbu and Harry, for the quick reply, but are you sure this is the way native speakers actually use it?
cut sb/sth off to prevent people from reaching or leaving a place, or to separate them from other people. For example The whole village was cut off by flooding; She lives abroad and feels very cut off from her family
Are you convinced now?
