/ Ty Newydd Crag Dyserth - no access.

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.
We've been informed by a local climber that the farmer and pheasant breeder who owns this crag has requested that climbers do not use the crag at all during the next few weeks as apparently climbing activity here may be disturbing the roosting pheasants.

Please respect this temporary restriction until further negotiations and a longer term agreement can be agreed.

Might be worth getting a temporary sign on the approach as not everyone will see this thread.
