Access: Flood lights

I have been in touch with Council, on behalf of ACAQ, regarding repair of the "flood" lights following water damage by the floods.

Whilst the park is high priority amongst the plethora of BCC flood damaged property, the restoration work is extensive and will take several months. The main switchboard is gone, as is the wiring connecting each of the 65 or so lights.

As with post the 2011 flood event, it might be 2023 before normal floodlighting is re-established here. Back then in 2011, it was about 3yrs before effective lighting was re-installed.

As in the post 2011 scenario, for night climbing, it is advised you bring a headlamp, or even your own self-generated lighting (as some do).

I will update this, as Council works progress.

👍

ethic

Climbing at 'KP' has a long, rich history and the cliffs are used by a huge number of climbers of very varied styles and abilities. For these reasons ethics here are complicated. However here are some undisputed points:

  • All top roping should be done through your own quickdraws to minimize wear on the anchors.
  • Don't ever chip holds.
  • Don't paint on any new initials.
  • Retrobolting is acceptable only after consensus is reached with a large cross section of the 'KP' climbing community. New bolts that don't meet this criteria are chopped, often within a few days.
