Lundy Stake Out
- Thursday 13th August 2020 at 7.12pm
Paul Harrison reports
Three large abseil stakes were recently placed on the grass slope above the descent to The Devil’s Chimney Cliff in Jenny’s Cove these have been subsequently removed by climbers on the request of Lundy Warden, Beccy McDonald.
Lundy is an SSSI and the slopes above Jenny’s Cove have recently seen a rise in the number of breeding Puffins and Manx Shearwaters. The approaches to all the cliffs on the island can be safeguarded with enough rope and common sense. If we are to continue enjoying the very good relationship we have with Lundy and the Landmark Trust then climbers are requested not place any further stakes or leave unnecessary abseil slings in place.
