Topic - Ban-y-gor approach

John Willson - on 03 Aug 2012
It is apparent that some people are taking a short cut across the field from the Lancaut Lane parking area. The padlocked gate and its post have partially collapsed. This may or may not have resulted from climbers climbing over it, but it gives everyone a perfect opportunity to point the finger.

This short cut crosses various categories of private land for which there is no permission, and may create yet further problems for this access-sensitve crag.

Please use the correct approach described in the 2007 Lower Wye Valley guidebook, the new South West Climbs, and the UKC crag logbook (i.e. clockwise round the outside of the fence surrounding the field). This was a great improvement on the original approach from the bottom of Lancaut Lane. It takes very little more time than crossing the field and it appears to be satisfactory to all parties.

Please use any opportunity to spread this message, and contact the BMC (Rob Dyer) or the local access rep (Rick Sewards) if problems are encountered.
