The DCA and all the volunteers who have put the effort in up there,access wise,and fabricating the garden gate and shaft caps should be congratulaled,there is clearly a huge amount of effort gone into it. Has one of the pitches had new bolts?they look different to last time i was there?great effort :thumbsup:

Hi Mark
Some of the training pitches had an extra bolt or 2 placed and I think one of the older anchors may have been replaced as it began to wiggle. You should find an up to date rigging topo on the DCA Registry page for Devonshire.
I'll be sure to pass on your thanks to the DCA volunteers who have done the work up there (or are still doing). This location is a great example of what considerate use and a close caver/landowner relationship can bring.

Yep - no 'training pitches' in the Dales, right? :P
(sounds good to me...)
