Gorilla Gone Mad – Increasing Number of Climbers

The Gorilla has gone mad.  With an increasing number of climbers learning in the gym environment and taking their new skills outdoors, impacts to climbing access, the environment, and visitor experiences are on the rise.  And it’s time to do something about it.

Education = Access

    Ah, I though maybe :)
    But what you’ll likely find is that most of the “new ones” are being taken there by existing ones.
    We were there the weekend. Freaking hard to even find some of the paths up to Vajra area anymore!

    Some of the paths? There is only one path to Vajra and it isn’t used exclusively by climbers. I was on it not too long ago and had no trouble finding it. Make sure you’re using the right path, we’re going to have to try hard to make sure we can maintain access.

    Was that Keith in the fur suit? (of the montagu swamp monster fame)
