I was wondering about rumors relating to the closure of one of the Harrysmith crags? I an catching rumors about either Swinburn or Eagle Mtn being closed due to a lion farm being opened by the new owner. :?:
Is there a reason that this hasn't been reported on here? The closure doesn't affect me other than on a philosophical level as I haven't done much climbing there.

Just spoke to Reception at Eagle Mountain / Mt Everest. Climbing still happening, no electricity in the camp site, but who needs that! R80 p/p/n

I saw some (surreal) pics of lions at Swinburne, although the climbers who took them were still allowed to climb there. Not sure what the official deal is.
Everest is all good - business as usual.
