/ Vivian Quarry closed due to major rockfall
BMC has been informed by Gwynedd Council, who manage the Padarn Country Park, that a major rockfall occurred here on 12-06-19 and that the landowners have stated that until a full assessment is made, access to the whole of Vivian Quarry (all levels) for all purposes, including climbing is prohibited. It appears that the rockfall occurred during the heavy rainfall and mainly affects the routes to the right of "Last Tango in Paris". The "bad step" to get past the base of the Dervish slab seems to have partially collapsed, as well as a considerable amount of debris falling from higher up above the Conscience slab, affecting these routes and everything below them. Please avoid!
Any updates will be put on the BMC RAD
