Topic - Wiping your feet before you climb ?

Phill Mitch - on 20 Aug 2012
I was out and about on Sunday and noticed mud all over the bottom of a route that had a top rope on it, I asked the person belaying if he would please ask people climbing to wipe their feet as I feel that it has a big part in wearing out the routes. He did look at me a bit funny but said yes ok. Fair enough.
But it seems every time I go to a popular location I see at least one person with grit all over their feet climbing.
I don't really feel it will make much difference posting it on here as most of us are aware of the damage it causes, but if it just helps one person to remember next time they climb then it was worth posting.
Happy climbing and please wipe your feet.Cheers.
