Went climbing here yesterday, the main crag may have gotten off lightly, but it was hardly untouched! Many areas were burnt right to the base of the wall on the left-hand side, and greenery on the walls have been burnt. Walking around the Abseil Wall area and down the Ikon descent, everything is charred and burnt, and you are walking through ash.

No rock damage that we saw. The bolts all still looked shiny, the glue on some of the bolts was maybe looking a bit funny, but I have no reference point. A HUGE amount of trash and bottles on the ground has been exposed on the walk-in.

Bits of cliff that are normally semi-hidden through the trees are now exposed. Pinnacle of Peril and the walls left of Pledge A Legend especially. Hopefully they'll get more ascents.

I might have some photos shortly.
