Just a heads-up for Avon Gorge climbers, that a group of around six teenagers were throwing rocks down from The Downs in Clifton, Bristol, into Main Area/Main Wall this evening. I've heard of this happening at least once before, in recent weeks. In addition to throwing rocks downwards - just adjacent to some climbers on Main Area - they were throwing them some distance towards cars on the road! We should have called the police, but our phones were at the bottom, whilst on multipitch!

B*st*rds.

Should have swung a large hex at them.

But who has that large a hex with them these days?

Might be worth mentioning it to the police so they are aware that this has happened again in a matter of weeks.

Did you report it afterwards? This happened at Sea Walls the other week!

Especially in the Gorge! Maybe try garotting them with a size 0 RP?

We topped out yesterday evening to someone practicing his trumpet, scales and then a little Spanishy type thing. It was extremely civilised - especially when he offered us a swig of his beer!

I saw worse at Long Quarry Point. Some little idiots decided to throw down a complete wooden pallet from the cliff top, a few metres from a classic E3. Fortunately noone was climbing on the face at the time!

A friend narrowly missed being fly-tipped on at Holcombe quarry a few days ago. I think the best answer to that is not to climb at Holcombe quarry because it's a dump. And it's sport climbing.

Get the police involved before someone gets seriously hurt.
