/ whats the rules/ethics on putting stakes in at top of crag?
to take the strain off headend quarry, i was thinking.....
if someone put in stakes at the top to belay off, it would get a lot more use.
but who could/would do this? who put the stakes in at headend? can folk just put in their own?
Really you just need to be responsible - take long stakes, place them sensibly and check they are not going to waggle loose and come out. Can't see any reason that you shouldn't do that yourself.
Just to be aware as they say Council has put sign up at Heptonstall Quarry advising people to watch out for the stakes..trip hazard.
