Good work Kevin. Everybody should do a wee bit each time they're at the crag as we don't get the traffic that other places do (walk/climb ice very handy for this work). More comments re grade and stars folks

Now clean as of this morning! It took flippin ages! And my eyes are now streaming with the muck coming back for avengence. I heard today some folk had to lower off gear instead of topping out things had got so overgrown. No such excuses now. Do the crux and you'll have gloriously featured dolerite to relax up as opposed to furry vine climbing. Gave it a lead this afternoon to check it was worth the effort. It was! Three stars. The e2 to do this climbfest! Grade is spot on and good value.
