I naively thought they might re-open it again, a long time ago, but I squeezed in a couple of laps on it just before it shut, just in case. There was some erosion, but a lot of the traffic had grown through abseiling groups, though I seem to remember they shifted aside or moved altogether some time before the actual ban came in. It was getting ridiculous there, but not due to crazy climber numbers.

But your implication is right about once these things are done they're rarely reversed - whatever the reasons. All the more reason to push back against similar things as they (still) happen. I know we have to tread carefully and work with land managers and all that, but I often see too automatic acquiescence to authority nowadays. Sometimes they just limit things for convenience and ass-covering, denying reasonable use of public land, by the public.
