There's been several threads about the impact of climbing on the biology/ecology of cliffs over the years so thought a link to a newly published review might be of interest.  Seems  dominated by studies in the USA & doesn't seem to include any studies from the UK, maybe not unconnected they note "The majority of studies have been conducted on single-pitch sport climbs, leaving gaps in how bouldering, multi-pitch, and traditional style climbing impact vegetation"

(I don't think its 'open access')

Definitely don’t use sci-hub(.se) to access non-OA journals
