Initials help identify the start of the routes. The dry stone wall is solid for belays and the walk off along the top is straight forward. Nice solid clean rock, was pleasantly surprised!

Start a thread on here and discuss formally at the BMC Area Comm, sound sensible unless anyone has better idea?

Due to the total lack of belays at the top (if you don't want to belay to the unsafe dry stone wall) and the slippery narrow path along the top, how about we install some abseil bolts in the concrete blocks along the top? Makes prefect sense to me.
