Sadly not the "test piece" it once was...over the last decade, finger holds on the shelf have been improved dramatically, [by chipping, this is NOT errosion]. Unfortunately, some climbers will do anything for "the tick".

It seems scugdale is becoming very common with these chipping idiots, a recent trend unfortunately, my guess is they're probably locals who just don't get it. Great to see these old photos making an appearance anyway.
