'Latest ascents' on the logbooks is always good for seeing what's In at particular crags.

Chee Tor has been lovely and dry the last week or so, but the weather today could cause problems. Best to go and have a look, and if it's wet get stuck Into The Cornice.

And I know you can do the first half, Phil, because you led me up it!

It was only 38 years ago…..

Was there a few weeks ago when crag was dry but most routes looked like they hadn't had ascents (see UKC as mentioned above) and needed a bit of a tidy either en route or on ab.

I was there on Monday and the 3 routes we were on (Meditation, Two Sunspots and Mortlocks pitch 1) were ok. I didn't do Mortlocks although apparently it would be nicer with a clean.

Like you say 38 years ago and Dom was stronger than me back then, so no early repeat from me. One thing though, it’s spoilt my personal record of having done all the E5,s on Chee!

Some friends of mine went to do the Girdle a month or two ago and reported it to be overgrown to the extent they didn't try. This seems odd because the logbooks report it getting done recently. Has anyone been on it recently? Is there much annoying greenery?

It's a route I'd like to do this summer.

The Girdle was climbed at least twice last Saturday.

We cleaned the top pitch of Great Central route and a few other routes are getting done.

Maybe they were trying to start the Girdle from the high approach from the tunnel. Starting up Doggone grove it is fine and most of the fixed thread belays along the way are good also.

In reply to kristian and Stoney Boy:

Thanks gents. I actually helped put some of the static rope and rings lower offs with a BMC Peak area group climb and clean there a few years ago. It must be maybe 5 years ago now but I didn't remember any sort of bushes looking along the traverse line from the tops of the routes we did, so I was a bit confused when Joe and Jesus said this. Perhaps they got their crags mixed up... Or just have incredibly high standards of crag cleanliness!
