Topic - Eagle crag Borrowdale -whats going on??

ebdon - on 11 Jun 2013
I having been wanting to go to eagle crag for ages as it always looked awesome and I always understood it to be something of a bastion of north lakes climbing. I finally persuade my girlfriend to go there last Sunday and I was pretty shocked of the state of the crag. It felt a bit like what I imagine climbing the winter lines on black ladders would be like in summer and Im no stranger to lakes mountain crags. We did the 2 star VS Falconers crack which I would have thought would be pretty popular but it was probably one of the most vegetated routes and the second dirtiest route Id ever been on - apart from the rusty pegs I felt like I was on the FA. Could someone enlighten me is this just the way some lakes crags are going or has this crag been under some massive bird ban for the last decade?
