MEETING WITH FABIAN PICARDO

January 22, 2020

On Friday 11 October, a fifteen-person contingent from the GCA met for 45 minutes with Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, in a very positive meeting at which we presented our requests for a climbing gym and a 'smart yes' to climbing in the nature reserve. While stressing his constitutional inability to make any commitments prior to the Election, the Chief Minister described our presentation as persuasive and offered us an open door to take the conversation to the next level, should he be returned to office next week.

3D Images of our proposed bouldering gym can be found here.
