Yes, the new fence was there when Miles, Lou and I went a couple of weeks ago; but we discovered, as you did, that access is still easy. It’s a good strong fence – I belayed off it, with a tree as backup!

I suspect it is not really a response to abseilers. Rather it is probably Eastlink-funded, since the nearby walking track is part of Eastlink Trail and will be expected to attract an increased numbers of users.
