/ Route Info, please - Great Orme
Anyone know which route this is? - Great Orme:
Sure do but its banned sadly.
Dunno, but I hope the lad belaying is a good 'un, otherwise that shiny white motor could end up needing a panel-beater
I remember, back in the day, doing a route which started up the jamming crack down and left of the climber, before hand traversing the horizontal break out to the left arete and finishing up that.
Bet that was one of yours too, Andy?

The route pictured is Dive, Dive, Dive (7b) - there are restrictions, but it's not currently banned.
There's a cheeky direct start; Badger Badger Badger (8a+) [1st ascentionist] ;-)
Andy's other route "The continuing adventures of Charlton Chestwig" just to the left is banned permanently.
However, Andy is correct in saying that there is a ban on Pen Trwyn routes; you can't climb on any of the routes above the road during the daytime, when it's school holidays. Full details on the BMC RAD, here: https://www.thebmc.co.uk/modules/RAD/View.aspx?id=830
Thanks, all. my next door neighbour took this photo last weekend - he was fairly impressed and wondered if the climbers were "elite". Mid grade sport really, isn't it? (Not that I could get up it!)
Yep, The Continuing Adventures of Charlton Chestwig I think.
