Who mentioned Bowden or Kyloe? We may use Spindlestone Heugh and Cullernose
I was at Crag Lough yesterday and some of the higher grade routes desperately need traffic.
I was there last weekend, and some of the lower grade routes do as well.
Great! A positive event with good intentions in a great climbing area. Come and have some fun and lighten up. Take no notice of the moaning minnies and Nimbys.
I've been climbing here for years and never experienced the heaving hordes typical of some other places, and I don't think a weekend climbing festival will change all of that. Yes, our rock and crags need taking care of, but they also offer some fantastic routes at all grades.
If someone wants to organise another similar event next year at the Wanneys or Peel or Crag Lough, please get on with it. I'll come to that too.
