Sport Climbing to be Prohibited in Tasmanian WHA 20-Jan-2015 At 6:31:58 PM JamesMc
Here's a new one. A proposal to prohibit the establishment and maintenance of sport climbs in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. I'm thinking Adamsfield but there are probably others.

Quote below from the new draft management plan.

– Generally maintain the TWWHA as a traditional climbing area;
– The establishment or maintenance of routes that are protected primarily or exclusively using fxed anchors (i.e. ‘sport’ climbs) is prohibited;
– Based on historical precedence, the occasional limited installation (or replacement) of permanent anchors at Mt geryon, The Acropolis, Frenchmans Cap and Mt Anne is permitted;
– Written authority must be obtained from the pWS before using power-driven equipment to install or replace any permanent anchor in the TWWHA;
– Limited use of permanent abseil anchors for canyoning activities may be approved by the pWs, subject to site-specifc considerations
