    Yeah ... you pass through the area. They don't want you to hike to the edge of the Amp or the NC Wall ... but the trail above is good to go.

    I got permission to take Gold Coast Pans last year and I spent about 2 hours watching those little buggers dive and prean on the ledges ... remarkable little "jet" in a birds body. They do tend to stay below the cliff wall though.

    There's no trail below the wall to the river as such ... but last year the ban covered the area to the river below the Amp and the NC Wall.

    One thing to remember ... have to keep group size to 10 or less ... but there's ways around that.

    I had such a great time in the Gorge the last time I was there, put me down as a tentative YES!

    That was pretty amazing that so many HF people just happened to be down near Conley Cove at the same time.

    Ha ... you don't know the blonde ... she's little but can be scary!

    My biggest concern is I have to make sure I don't end up on a plane to China mid month! Got a few projects going but shouldn't involve me bird dogging them on site ... (fingers and toes crossed)
