Hear Hear! Thanks Jeanpant, I totally agree with that. Is CNC completely aware of the damage done? 70 bucks a permit, even the R300 for a wildcard, times the amount of climbers currently visiting Rocklands equals a substantial amount that can be used towards proper access control and better area managing. Maybe if we as a climbing community (we can all love each other just this once) approach CNC and make propositions such as these (periodic area shutdown for example,but there are more) we can get the ball rolling in the right direction, and sooner.
We have to start thinking long-term with areas such as Rocklands, especially if you take the amount of damage already done in the popular areas, which are relatively small considering the amount of rock there that's still unexpored!
