I was struggling with a bouldering problem a while ago and came back to it a few weeks later but A LOT of nettles have grown over the time making it hard to do. I'm wondering if anyone had any tips or ideas of how to clear the area? Any advice would be fantastic

There are loads of ways to clear nettles but it depends on where you are:

1) Thick trousers, heavy boots and a bit of trampling.
2) Introduce grazing animals
3) A scythe
4) Get really drunk, push a mate in and then shout "bundle"
5) A brush cutter
6) Glyphosate
7) Use your bouldering mat to push through them and then flatten them.
8) Introduce bind weed, wait 3 moths and then pull the whole lot out in one go.

Can I use butterflies instead of moths if I want to do it during the day?

9) Torch the place (also removes lichen)
10) Drink a lot of nettle tea.
11) Eat them

In reply to mkean: Thanks for the tips, too torch the place sounds like some good fun, guess I'll be doing that when the weather lets me
