Access issue @ the Mine?

Please note that for those who park their vehicles at the entrance to the Naval Base below the Mine, don't use the vandalised section of fence to take a shortcut to the crag!
We have heard grumbling from the guards at the gate when they see climbers using this as a thoroughfare. I'm hoping it wasn't a climber who damaged the fence. In any event the long way round only adds a few minutes to the walk. The SANDF could make access difficult for us to use the Mine if they thought we had damaged their property!

On that note, when I spoke to the guards on our last visit, it doesn't seem to be a problem to park there over weekends, but during the week they get into trouble as that pullout is used for searching vehicles entering the naval base. This is kinda sub-optimal as if you park in the usual spot then you risk finding window glass on the ground... Pity I no longer have week time to climb to worry about alternate parking spots... :pirat:
