He's correcting it.
The link, "Lac de St. Croix." works
Climbing is banned already at Lulworth so I wouldnt see how a ban on cliff jumping would deter the keen deep water soloist any more...
Tombstoning? Looks more akin to sliding into a jacuzzi. http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=71945

Well of course. The French are well known for making climbing look more attractive than it actually is.
Pont d' Arc in the Ardeche is a winner.
I got about 35 foot up the east wall before sommersaulting backwards into the river.

I bought the tombstoning.com domain name 2 years ago before it had received SO much bad press. I have been rock climbing and rock jumping (as it was so simply called before that) for years and wanted to put up a gallery of pictures for friends and family. Now I'm attempting (and it may fail miserably) to put up advice and safety guidlines for anyone taking part in this extreme sport that actually takes it seriously, and isnt just drunk or jumping off a pier.
"I am worried the perception of tombstoning will soon stretch to DWS as well."
Too late bro!
