/ A Cheddar via ferrata?
My hunch is that climbers would not be very happy about this. But I could be wrong. What do people think?
I've never been to Cheddar gorge but it's on the to do list. Either way I can't comment on the suitability of the site but I'd love a via ferrata in the South West. Would be awesome to give it a go
What a hideous thought. Imagine lines of rungs and cables all over High Rock. Oh dear.
The south west already has a via feratta.
Simanon direct at cheesewring
....and Pink Wall Traverse.
And the descent at the end of Berry Head quarry.
Too bad there's climbs all over it :-)
Maybe the same justification could be used as for putting sports routes in trad areas, which has been done in the SW at many places including of course - Cheddar.
