A couple of weeks ago I had to explain to a team of otherwise experienced rock cats at Pex that top roping directly off the railings cuts deep grooves into the top and destroys your rope. You should use some form of rope protector and put the rope through a screwgate crab hung over the edge. This is standard procedure on Southern Sandstone. Well blow me if I didn't go to Helsby last night and discover new, deep grooves cut into the rock below the belay stake above Morgue Slab. Shape up, lads!
