Description Suggest change

Many of the routes here REQUIRE AN 80m ROPE to LOWER. TIE KNOTS AT THE ENDS OF YOUR ROPE. 60 and 70m ropes will not get you to the ground. 

A sunny area with a short approach, Banana Belt has some good (but not great) moderates.

Getting There Suggest change

Update 12/2019: Walk downstream about 100' from Pub Wall & wade across shallow still water just above a group of rocks or negotiate the primitive crossings downstream between the rocks and shores.

Consistent high water this year is to be expected.
