The moderator has visited quite a few 'good' crags and thinks that the people have voted with their feet. Maybe Ian Jones needs to get off his high horse and chill out a bit more. Seriously.

Steve Palmer says he caught two ticks.
Perhaps he got them off this page. Because there are far too many ticks on here.
The moderator needs to visit some good crags to see what real quality is. Seriously.

Have had two ticks after a visit 26/06/10. Remember to check your skin carefully. Otherwise a great crag made even better by the nearby cafe!
