I stand corrected here, but my understanding is that MCSA members (yes with valid, paid-up membership cards) are exempt from the activity permit requirement (for sport-climbing) because of the MCSA's contribution to the sport climbing EMP, and the hands-on work detailed in the EMP such as maintaining paths.

Thanks Andy and Cormac / 'them' the MCSA.

Good point I never thought of that!
The poles were already there-from previous path building at Main crag-whom paid for the poles?-You will have to ask Andy, I got the stakes (would have been paid for by MCSA) from Andy- All the equipment used was our own, except a drill bit and attachment from Andy.
It took us 2 hrs to build, we need to go back and do 2 more, as we ran out of stakes.

Bolting lines is easy! We must also be conscious of it impact on the surrounding environment!

Cheers
