The NCC (park custodians) have closed most of the climbing spots in spring 2010, the only remaining areas now open for climbing are;home cliff, the western cwm, and the eastern blocks. All other spots are now off limits, the NCC has rangers on foot and planes to inforce the new climbing rules. Also all winter ice climbing and para-sailing has been banned.
