Topic - Helsby

Went to Helsby yesterday and ventured over to Pigeonhole arete area. Hadn't been over there for a fair few years and could not believe how dense the foilage was at its base. I literally hd to throw by mat ahead of me trample it down and then repeat process just to get to foot of it. Can the BMC negotiate with the National Trust to have a clearing operation carried out ?
It was a nightmare and these climbs are great so surely something can be done.
Interestingly we had a pint in the Helsby Arms afterwards and the pictures on the wall dating from 1905 show a Helsby Largely devoid of trees and foilage which made the crag look much more impressive and appealing.
The new guide is great and I am sure that if something could be done we could have any even greater crag :-)
