Wet weather has made cliffs too treacherous to climb

CLIMBERS are being warned of the added dangers they face heading up Guernsey’s cliffs in the current treacherous weather conditions.
St John Ambulance and Rescue Service issued the warning after its cliff rescue team were called out to a climber stuck 70ft up a rock face at Moulin Huet Bay in St Martin’s on Sunday.
Duty officer Stuart Malley, pictured, said it was dangerous for any climber to head out in these conditions and even warned organised outings to notify St John beforehand where they were heading.
‘At this time of year the cliffs are dangerous,’ he said.
‘There are a lot of loose rocks, a lot of mud slides and loose roots.
‘There are all sorts of reasons why you should not be climbing up a cliff.’
