Those who were planning to put on their climbing gear
and head to the Great Orme in the coming days may have to reschedule, due to a rockfall above the Marine Drive.
The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) has issued a warning to would-be climbers due to the incident, which happened after a torrential storm earlier this week.
It currently affects the bouldering at Parisellas Cave and all of Upper Pen Trwyn.
Despite the rockfall's small size, experts are concerned that a much bigger area could also fall. Both pedestrian and road access have been closed.
"Access to Lower Pen Trwyn seems possible by walking along the beach from the steps by the pier, but not officially by the usual descent gully," the BMC explained.
It added that if the problem continues to restrict people who are eager to test out their climbing gear
at the spot, they will try to gain access to the caves and Mayfair walls.
This is the second time in just over a month access to the Marine Drive was restricted; on June 4th and 5th it was affected by a local car rally.
