'the crag floor now is just a jumble of giant boulders, with all of North Wales' hardest drytooling routes on them!'

Bolted Boulder Problems, awesome ;-)

Brothers and sisters of tooling, for too long have we been marginalised on to reservations like this 4th rate crag. Let the thunder of this collapse be our wake-up call. It is time to claim North Wales as our homeland. First we take Dinorwig...

Toolers of the world unite! You have nothing to lose but your fixed quickdraws. We march on Raven Tor at first light.

Raven Tor isn't really steep enough to be of much interest ;-)

In reply to Misha:
Agreed. But I live nearer Raven Tor than Dinorwig and my marching radius needs to be realistic.

Hate to be pedantic, but it hasn't been in Clwyd for over 20 years.

Don't know it but will have a look next time I'm there ;-)

On a serious note, there's plenty more hard new routing potential at the Works and there's Mannod as well, although not sure it's got anything as hard as Powepact.

Do you mean the bouldering wall in Sheffield ?
Also on a more sensible note I think there is room for more stuff to be developed at masson as well, Surely a low start into tenacious link where the old bolts are? And independent lines as well?
