Hi Mark & Robert,
I am putting this publicly on here as I did my other post. I am sorry my post comes across very strongly indeed and although I am very frustrated with all this, I have to say your efforts you are putting in to clean these places up are well, just fantastic. You do however need to curb your enthusiasm when it comes to claiming the problems and grades.
I know from our conversation that you just want your bit of fame and you do deserve it for your efforts, you have certainly put a lot of work into these and other venues not yet released on this site.
It may be better though if rather than just claiming all the problems as being climbed, put a P (project) after the name as it is far better to be open and honest about things than have people go down and leave comments such as I did, this way as well you will still be able to name the problem.
My last point and I know I have made this earlier in my last comment, please try and give a bit more descriptive write up to your problems, LH this rh that is very hard to follow and very confusing when using terminology that most people either don't understand or is incorrect.
Please keep up the good work of finding and cleaning these venues but be honest to yourselves and the wider public.
Once again I'm sorry for being harsh, and well don in cleaning these areas. T|

Robert & Mark,
Again I have to question you regards if the problems you are claiming have actually been climbed. The problems you show in the pictures do not follow logical lines and the grade of one problem is just so far wrong that it leads me to throw question to your claims. The climb soks would be far harder than 5 + just to pull off and round the roof. Busta blood v does not climb in the way you have written it up and the footholds underneath that needed to be used when doing the problem had not be cleaned at all. In fact with the amount of mud that had been left on the holds I can only assume you were trying them in the walking boots I saw you climbing in when we met, not something you would be able to use to climb this problem.
Please also take down the photos of your route discriptions, showing chalk marks to this extent is not the right thing to do especial as some are still visible even though you have attempted to clean them off. Doing a comp generated image is the right way not chalking and numbering your lines on the crag itself.
