Re: Climbing on Standing Stones

I would never condone the random climbing of stones, but the talk of damage to lichens always interests me..

I wonder about the touching of the stones with bare hands- oils and acids can't be good for lichen can they? The hugging and general embracing of stones must also impact on lichen as well I would have thought. Same goes for sitting on and leaning against stones and yet the lichen are thriving or at least appear to be.

Is it possible that they are a lot more resilient than we think..

How long did they take to recover from the paint attack - Does anybody know?
