Mel and Gary are fantastic people and they have made the Olive Branch one of the best and most friendly climbing locations that I have been too. The Olive Branch absolutely deserves to survive the current pandemic so that future generations of climbers can enjoy the warm welcome and the great climbing that is offered by Mel and Gary.

Dear Mel and Gary You are getting there and I sincerely hope you survive As I am going nowhere except cycling (UK holiday planned for July - St Austell to Dover) I though you should have another £50 . I am reduced to watching videos of The Blue Line on Youtube and live in despair that Brits wont be coming until October/November if we are lucky! Been to the wall three times since March, and nothing outdoors. Forgotten how! All the best Stephen

Hi Olive Branch. Thank you for your efforts to stay open. You run a wonderful place and we can’t wait to come and visit again. Life must be so stressful at the moment but this cannot go on forever! Best wishes Helen and Steve
