Sounds like a fantastic week.
Very funny that the quote you used had such a great spelling mistake, the mind boggles at the concept of a "souring arÍte"!
"I just can't understand why this place has not had more press as it is certainly one of Britain's climbing treasures"
Amen. But I think a quick scan of the grade range will explain why its not more popular... Good circuit of easier bouldering for mere mortals though.
Good effort lads.
Surprised they spent a full week there tho. Looks like they ticked the crag, with no reason to come back. Locals aside, most people visit Nescliffe and other A5 crags enroute to/fro N Wales.
Nice one Hamer you complete and utter beast! see you in september!
If anyone wants to go an give Nessie a go without having to lead, definately can do Red Square on toprope and your guaranteed a good day out.
There is also some secret bouldering at the top of the quarry. Good hunting and be careful of that edge!
Red Square is pretty easy to protect and swallows hexes, large nuts and medium cams. Top roping it would be missing the point!
Just sharing a bit of knowledge so we can all look after the crag and keep an eye out for each other.
And on that note: Nesscliffe can get really soft and greasy 2-3 days after rain as the rock is really porous. Good thing to know if you don't fancy getting too much air time and testing the gear you are putting in the wall.
Ace! Nice list, I have to get me to Nesscliffe, looks so cool. Any info on the styles of the ascents?
