Although this is a well travelled route, I was kind of surprised to see how much vegetation was growing in it, so spent 15 minutes clearing ledges and cracks whilst on lead, sorry Derek. There is still some there, but its much better now. As someone once said of the Lancashire Quarries, it only takes a moment to pull out a fern or a piece of grass, and if everyone did it at least the popular routes would stay vegetation free. I do not extend this advice to top outs though, where I believe the jury is still out on the best approach there.
