But cybersquatters have taken over the website and the topos are gone.
Any chance anyone knows where the topos can be found?
I have the topos for the malvern routes on PDF.
Actually Westminster Arms quarry is far nicer!
Ivy Buttress is not completely terrible - my logbook notes you need 2 no.1 nuts to protect the crux well. But, yeah, overall it a bit pants.
Probably the best plan! - the climbing on the Malverns is truly terrible and i am a big fan of esoteria!
Tank Quarry had some good slab problems ... Reservoir wall is good ... Tollgate Arete (which I now formally claim the first ascent of! 1971) is a great pitch. But it's a big lump of rocky hill to have such limited climbing.
I'm not going climbing now! perhaps you could post the topos to the crag moderator and they could be made available somewhere on UKC?

No thanks!! - i'm back in Bristol now! (would be good to meet up again though - over your way)
