/ Avon gorge 'Unknown area' access
I've heard that the entire of Unknown area is banned except for the climbs on the ramp. Or only the routes past New Horizons are banned. Or that its all open except to stay away from the rockfall area.
Doesn't Climb Bristol have something on its facebook page? Here from 23rd April: "The access restrictions in the Unknown area remain in place for the time being. Cheers, Martin", not sure if that is the most up to date thing though as not on FB. I'm interested to know too as Unknown Wall has been on my ticklist for a loooong time.
Bump. Anyone have more up to date info?
I've not heard of anything changing - everything below and left of the ramp is still closed as far as I'm aware.
My mates climbed Desecrator on Friday afternoon while I watched them from the belay above. The climb itself is completely unchanged. However, you can see that a big slab has come down, 10m wide and probably 1-2m deep, at the far end (nearest the sea). There is a big debris field which needs to be crossed on the way up to this area but once you get to the Desecrator belay, it looks fine.
That said, if the far end can fall down, what is holding up the rest ?
