Topic - Remove Tilly Whim ban, Swanage?

oldie - on 24 Sep 2013
Do people think that the total ban on climbing to the west of Tilly Whim Caves should be reexamined?
The existing routes can be found in old guidebooks.

Presumably the ban is not due to nesting birds as seasonal restrictions could be applied.
The ban might be to discourage walkers from going over the wall bounding the coastal path (probably unlikely to happen) or to prevent people going over the ledge by the banned Tilly Whim caves due apparently to a slight danger of rockfall (however abseil access only would overcome this).

I climbed there many years ago (Rendezvous Manque and Steeple) and have recently looked at the cliffs from the sea. It would certainly be a worthwhile addition to the Swanage repertoire.
