Topic - Trees Down at Keyhole Cave Area, Millstone Edge

Michael Ryan - on 25 Apr 2012
Climbing at the Keyhole Cave Area yesterday.

Noticed that several....10 or so....of the Silver Birches (?) just beyond the grassy spot were down (not seen a thread about this, link if there is one).

They hadn't been chopped are sawed, but bent over and broken. The ends splintered. Some whole trees were down, others partially down.

Anyone know how this happened?

We thought at first strong winds, yet other trees in the area were untouched.

It was almost if they had been pulled down with a rope, maybe with some sort of pully system.

As an aside, yes the bar and peg has gone from the cave above Oxford Street etc...

So did Piccadilly Circus: http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/c.php?i=10800

Great route.
