Group abseiling activities have been a major cause of erosion above the 'Mauler', 'Mangler', and 'Dangler', leaving the whole area dangerously unstable and slippery especially when damp. Alternative venues may be better suited for abseiling activities. Please use a sling around cliff top trees when top roping and ensure that groups under instruction are wearing soft soled shoes only.
