Someone more knowledgable could correct me, but I believe that not only did PV not enforce the SPZs, but they actually endorsed climbing-related development (trackworks) subsequent to this plan. I think everyone just assumed they would formally endorse climbing in these areas when they next got around to updating the PMP. Obviously, that's all up in the air now.

I don't think it's fair to expect climbing guidebooks to mention access issues that didn't exist until recently.
