Avery good presentation on the access and conduct

With the questions i would have found it a lot easyer to understand which area you meant if you had used River Right, River left description rather than south, west and East or a pic

Very good information and great virtual course

All the work that's gone into this is really appreciated thank you :-)

I'm sure lots of sweat and tears went in to producing all of this so well done to all involved.
Plenty of visual info (especially for outdoor folk!) Fab job.

Many Thanks for having these online courses

Thanks for putting this together. It's really useful to have the gorge information in this online format given current restrictions and to allow everyone access to the resources. Thanks for the time and effort that has gone in to producing this.

Thanks, A lot of work has gone into this.
