/ Millstone Fixed Gear
Eh? How many pitches are there on Whitehall? It's a sixty-foot crack, isn't it?
The pegs have been there for ever. I wouldn't worry too much about the cord.
The eye on the Embankment 3 peg is quite small and awkward to clip due to the proximity of the crack so it usually has cord threaded through it.
normal procedure when you don't want stuff like this removed is to leave a malion or to super glue a screw gate shut, I suspect your screw gate won't be there long, many climbers don't read ukc or would just consider this booty anyway!
Odd post. I think you've guaranteed at least one more person will be tempted by Whitehall's charms pretty soon. All those Millstone face climbers, they don't know what they're missing.
Why would you only do the 1st pitch with that superb groove above?
I was out photoing the northern bays in the late sun and snapped you guys as we passed (you were the only climbers in the whole quarry, which was pretty amazing). When I saw this thread I put 2 'n' 2 together and posted the pics!
If you can climb 4b but can't climb 5b?

Why not do Covent Garden, that goes all the way to the summit!
It certainly looks very clean at the moment, a good time to get on it!
