Currently this area should be regarded as closed and dangerous due to the quake. It is rumoured to be teetering tilted and bolts and blocks have fallen out.We will be working in that area shortly so should have more details. 4/4/11 Simon M

The 4 routes from the left appear unaffected by the quake but the next 2 are totalled.Photo's to come.
