Spoke to owner in November 2010, and they are refusing entry because relatives of whoever needed the air ambulance asked why they weren't insured, so they decided no more climbers after that moment. The ban seems unlikely to be lifted...

Owner still refusing entry (April 2009). I spoke to the owners wife and she said it was both because of the birds nesting, and that an air ambulance was called out as some point, therefore they are worried about insurance. Hopefully this can be resolved when the birds stop nesting.
