on the plus side Redbull might accidentally create some classic Fr5+ while bolting their cameras into position

Of you could go along and if challenged tell them to go and fuck themselves. Anything below the high tide line is public property.

thats what i was thinking, how can they legally 'fence off' public property but even if you could climb i'd doubt you would want to with that circus going on.

hi
the Poll na bPeist looks like a bit industrial now ... http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/s720x720/302468_500459893302624_1973386600_n.jpg

i hope, that they dont do a lot of damage to the rocks...

but  Poll na bPeist is not the only place for bouldering on inis mor :)

Thanks for sharing that photo Pawel. The diving board looks pretty impressive. It seems that the steps in the foreground goes down the easy corner that is the descent to the bouldering on the walls below. Would be you be able to check afterwards that RedBull haven't damaged any of the bouldering?

I'm interested to see what sort of state the place is left in so please keep us informed Pawel. Thanks.

Has anyone been to Poll na Peist since? Did Red Bull leave no trace?  ;)

hi
i checked Poll na Peist and is OK - no damaged to any bouldering, but away from "leave no trace" :) and i found some leftovers like drill holes, bolts, nails, some paint marks and something that looks like a cement/concrete (probably used to stabilize diving board)... For myself thats too much leftovers (because i really like this place) but generally is OK :)

And thanks to Red Bull this place is much more popular (i was there after 8 pm and i met 7 tourists - never happend before) and unfortunately like everywhere: more tourists = more rubbish :(

Get photos. Fire them up on Facebook and shame them into getting it returned to how it was, it's the least they can do.

Agreed. Please take some photos if you get a chance. It sounded like an amazing event enjoyed by all attending but I'm sorry - fizzy drinks companies can't just come in to these incredible landscapes and run extremely high profile events and benefit from the publicity to sell more fizzy drinks without taking full responsibility to keep the place pristine.

i took some photos, so you can see how it looks like:

the white "stones" is a cement (this is the top of the cliff - the place with diving board)


paint marks


drill holes


bolt

Hope that Red Bull sort this out. Fair play aranman for taking the trouble.

If they keep holding that event there every year the place won't be long getting wrecked ... disgraceful !!
