Climbing at Kelso is scheduled to re-open Sept 30, 2012. Halton Conservation is working hard to expedite construction and allow climbing to resume as soon as possible.
Premature climbing in the area may compromise the construction permit and cause a further delay. A further meeting scheduled for mid-August is expected to build on increased mutual understanding to date of the OAC’s, climbers’ and Conservation Halton’s perspectives.
The OAC would like to thank Jon Rigg for his volunteer efforts in facilitating conversations with the Park Superintendant and doing a fine job representing the interests of the climbing community.
We can’t wait to get back on some of the classics like Dragline, Zip and Jolly Roger.
