Both Western Union and The Iron Man now have reasonable protection and are clean. Phoenix is still a bold offering, even after cleaning.
All these routes have seen repeats at the hands of committed locals activists Duncan Booth, Andy Mitchell and Al Wilson. Wilson's cleaning led to an onsight of Phoenix (E7) by Booth and several flashes of other routes by the team.
Over at Flat Crags, Mitchell grabbed a repeat of the very bold Flattery (E7) after top-rope practice, commenting that James McHaffie's onsight of this route a few years ago was "Extremely Impressive!".
Get on them whilst they're clean!
