Climbing body in Great Orme reminder

The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) has issued a reminder to those heading to north Wales with their climbing shoes that summer restrictions are in place on part of the Great Orme near Llandudno.

It means there is no climbing allowed on most of the cliffs above Marine Drive before 18:00 BST each day, due to the increased visitor numbers in the area and the consequent rise in the danger of people coming to harm due to rockfalls caused by climbers.

These came into force on July 15th and will be in place until September 8th, with the BMC reminding members of this fact, due to recent cases of individuals being seen on the cliffs at prohibited times.

It stated: "In the last few weeks there have been significant access gains for climbers on the Ormes and its imperative that climbers stick to these long term agreements if these gains are to be maintained."

One area of coastal cliffs in Wales where climbing restrictions have just been removed is the South Pembrokeshire Coast.

The BMC noted these areas have been opened from July 30th due to birds completing their nesting season earlier than normal this year.
