Topic - Crag Lough

The Mole - on 21 Sep 2012
The Crag Lough restoration day last weekend was a great success with over twenty volunteers turning out to do some gardening.
Original thread:

The job of cleaning routes was found to be harder and more time consuming than anticipated however a good number of routes were given a make over and some resurrected from the undergrowth.

A list of what was done and by who is below. Many of these routes should be a lot more enjoyable than they were and some may now see regular accents after many years of being understandably ignored
Please be aware that there may be the odd loose bit around as a result of what was in some cases some pretty impressive gardening. The winter should help to stabilise things a bit
