UKC Logbook Moderator's Thread

Please Register as a New User in order to reply to this topic.

Please use this thread to post moderating requests, problem crags and suggestions. If you do post about a crag then please use the Logbooks 'Insert crag link...' box above the reply box so that a link is included which makes things lot easier to sort than if just a crag name is written.

Existing Moderators
If you moderate a crag but find yourself ignoring the update emails, or you have lost interest, or you have moved away then please could you remove yourself as moderator using the button at the base of the crag moderation page. Then reply to this thread with 'Crag Available' and the crag link inserted so that someone else can volunteer.

New Moderators
If you would like to moderate a crag, and feel you could do a better job than the current moderator, then reply to this thread with 'Crag Requested', the crag name and link so that we can arrange a switch if appropriate. We can now add second moderators to crags as well.

Thanks for everyone's help with UKC Logbook moderating. We are aware that this is sometimes a tiresome task and all your efforts are appreciated.

The previous UKC Moderator threads have got too big and has now been locked. Here it is for reference

Time to tidy up the Swiss guidebooks.  There are three entries for the current Schweiz plaisir Jura 2017.

Please keep this one (index 1875), which I have just updated with the relevant info from the other two entries, and which has the links to the crags (some of them anyway, next job...):

https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/books/schweiz_plaisir_jura-1875

These two you can delete:

https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/books/schweiz_plaisir_jura-2110

https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/books/plasir_jura-2111

...and there is the original edition from 1997, which you could rename to the correct "Schweiz Plaisir Jura", to be in line with all the other editions:

Thanks!

In the immediate post-Brexit era, and on the day of a humbling defeat of Les Rosbifs by Les Bleus, let us act in the fullest respect of our dear neighbour: there is an error in the spelling of the area "Aln" which should be "Ain", see e.g.:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ain

(There are nine crags in this area, e.g.: Cerdon)

In reply to rlrs:

Thanks, that's updated.

 Andy Moles 03 Mar 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

No match for crag id:11498 should be combined with Ciste Crag, keeping the latter name.

Among the many locals I've heard make reference to the crag, it's called 'Cranberry Rocks' by no one.

In reply to Andy Moles:

That's done.

 Graeme Hammond 04 Mar 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

Back Forest

this crag should be split up again to reflect the access issues at The Hanging Stone unless anyone else has more recent information. As you currently can only link to 1 BMC rad link the info about this is not shown. See https://www.thebmc.co.uk/modules/RAD/View.aspx?id=634 we got asked to leave in May 2018, it is a strange situation as there is often people picnicking on the top and a concessionary path right under the crag where you belay.

 Haydn Jones 05 Mar 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

Albarracin

In my opinion albarracin should be split into its sectors. It's a bit too unwieldy at the moment and it feels like being the moderator for and area the size of eastern grit.

Bezas should be done too before it gets a hassle. Its not that bad yet as not many people go but with the new guide out it's going to become just as popular and its size is just as vast as albarracin.

 rlrs 09 Mar 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

Let's rename this crag in Muotathal:

Zwingsbrügg

to "Zwingsbrügg"

If the normal grading standards of Central Switzerland apply, quite possibly home to the hardest 9a in the world.

(Credit to the creator of the crag for not putting it in the Kanton Aargau area!)

 Andy Moles 14 Mar 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

Just noticed when logging it that Postern Original (VII 7) and Postern Variation (VI 6) have been amalgamated by that Rockfax thing and are both listed as VI 6.

The confusion is that Postern Variation (VI 6) is the more commonly climbed version, and so that is what's described as the standard route in Scottish Winter Climbs.

It would make most sense to rename Postern Original (VII 7) as Postern Original and restore it to its correct grade of VII 7, and attach the Rockfax link to Postern Variation.

In reply to Andy Moles:

That's sorted.

 aln 01 Apr 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

I had a request a week ago to check a route at a crag I moderate. As travel restrictions mean I can't get to the crag I clicked on the can't be confirmed button. Today I had another request for the same route. I still can't go look at it.

 Big Lee 02 Apr 2020
In reply to aln:

Seems like you're being overly pedantic. Why not just leave it as unverified for now? The 'cannot be confirmed' status is more for routes that lack enough information to describe their whereabouts, although this is only really critical when not listed in a guidebook. If you use the 'cannot be confirmed' status then the contributor is going to get an email requesting more information, and to their credit it sounds like they're making an effort to do so. Maybe just take the contributor's word for it if what they have added looked credible and informative? Or just email them directly re anything still lacking? 

 aln 02 Apr 2020
In reply to Big Lee:

> Seems like you're being overly pedantic. 

I wouldn't call it that, just trying to moderate properly, otherwise why bother? And in normal times it gives me an excuse to go to the crag 😊 I've changed it to unverified for the time being.

In reply to Dale Turrell:

Added you

 Andy Moles 27 Apr 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

No match for crag id:17860, No match for crag id:21955 and No match for crag id:21954 are all duplicates that are part of what's included in Fachwen Boulders.

Maybe change the name to Fachwen Boulders, then split the quarry sectors into a separate crag Fachwen Quarries, to make it clear and stop people re-adding them.

 Andy Moles 27 Apr 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

Also, rename Clegir Boulders 'Clegir Boulders', as it already includes a bunch of problems from walls other than Mur Pen Clegir itself.

Clegir Boulders can include No match for crag id:26328 and No match for crag id:27197.

More duplicates - No match for crag id:8936 and Union Rock are the same crag. Name should probably be Union Rock as that's the whole thing. The first sector here Fachwen Boulders should be moved to Union Rock as well.

 acrkirby 27 Apr 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

Now that we have the new 'type' column in the log books i noticed that several 'D' for trad Difficult climbs have been given an alpine 'D' instead. Just at the one crag i was looking at,  Crag Lough i noticed Wall and Crack (D)Jezebel (D)Block Chimney (D) had the problem. Thinking this might be a widespread problem? 

Or someone decided the cold ascent of Hadrian's wall deserved an alpine grade, not out of the question...

In reply to acrkirby:

Thanks, that was from a very old bug from when we were importing route data from the guidebooks and a few routes were incorrectly tagged as Difficile instead Diff.

I've sorted those out in the Rockfax database, they will be synced through to the UKC one shortly.

In reply to Andy Moles:

That's sorted.

In reply to Andy Moles:

Sorted those apart from below as I wasn't sure which routes you were referring to. Would you mind sticking the routes that need moving within a buttress hearing please? I've added you as a moderator. Thanks for the help.

> The first sector here Fachwen Boulders should be moved to Union Rock as well.

 Andy Moles 28 Apr 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

The ones under Craig yr Undeb (yellow wall) in Fachwen should go to Union Rock.

On a side note, I clicked that in the 'Insert crag link' box, but although sectors appear in the drop down there, they don't appear in the published message. Something to tweak maybe?

If you add me as a moderator to Clegir as well, I can sort that a bit too.

 Graeme Hammond 29 Apr 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

I'm fairly sure i logged this years ago, as had loads of other people but all the logbook ticks seem to have been removed! It doesn't have a rockfax app symbol next to it so perhaps it is a issue with other climbs too that are no longer listed separately in the Rockfax app (it appears in your guide book as a separate 3 star route)?

 Andy Moles 01 May 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

For a bit of generic feedback, I have to say that when moderating crags I find the locking down of route names, grades etc that are included in the Rockfax app quite an annoying feature. I've quickly noticed quite a few mistakes, and it doesn't allow changing something if, for example, a hold breaks or consensus changes on something relatively new.

 Andy Moles 08 Jun 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

A couple of bits of general feedback:

If using night mode on the site, on the moderator page for a crag it's very hard to read the buttress names, as it is almost the same colour as the background.

The new system of putting up in red text on the crag page when a route is no longer climbable, rather than having a little STOP sign like we used to have (and still do on the route page) is not super helpful, because it doesn't distinguish between routes that just haven't been checked yet by the moderator, and routes that have actually fallen down.

 Rowan Morgan 15 Jun 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

Apologies if this has been asked/answered in a previous thread.

I'm moderating two rather underdeveloped crags in the Lake District, and was wondering about the etiquette of logging and moderating my own first ascents? I've added and approved some (very) low-grade stuff at Pardshaw Crag, but have my eye on some interesting lines at Rannerdale Knotts.

Can't help but feel it's cheeky to fast-track my own FA's seeing as anyone else's would be at my discretion. Obviously will remain unbiased but thought I'd check if there are any further considerations? Ta in advance

All the crags beyond PT and LPT on the Orme are in a bit of a mess? Some routes missing, others in the wrong place etc.

In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

when attempting to respond to update requests it seems that where things are linked to Rockfax they cannot be properly moderated.

this has unfortunately resulted in a lot of erroneous bullshit being dumped on some of the crags which I seem powerless to remove.

being a moderator is a thankless task at the best of times but this overrule from Rockfax is rapidly making me think of dumping all the crags I try to maintain.

We only add an extra description if there's one available from Rockfax. None of the descriptions from the UKC database should be affected eg. Square Chimney & Whisky Crack (HS 4b)

In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

Is there any scope for some sort of auto-nudge to moderators? I’ve seen new problems/descriptions left fallow for months and years sometimes. If you can be faffed to try and tidy the data it’s a shame if it doesn’t get actioned. People move on, get busy, lose interest, all fine of course. But a gentle nudge might help?

In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

Cheers, there's a sector heading in there called 'Whale Rock Routes' that it won't allow me to delete because it's linked to the Rockfax database, but it's totally unnecessary.

In reply to Andy Moles:

That's a difference with the data structure with the Rockfax database (that's actually holding the SMC data in this case) I'm afraid.

With Rockfax, a climb exists within a Buttress and a Buttress within a Crag.
On UKC, both a Climb and Buttress exists within a Crag, they're just different positions in the climb order.

Therefore, the Whale Rock Routes Buttress can't be deleted as it would remove the parent of all the climbs linked to the Rockfax database.

I prefer the Rockfax structure tbh but it's a lot of work updating UKC to match.

Also, it's not normally an issue as most crags have more than one Buttress/Sector.

I also found that a crag I moderate had been "updated" by someone who had never been there; wiping out my crag and access information  in the process. I wasn't happy.

You'd think that moderators should have at least been to the crag rather than just sucking info off the web.  Yours, bitter and twisted of Waunfawr.

Hello again, just wanted to ask whether it could be changed so "boulder, ground up" could be added to the ascent style. "Solo, ground up" seems to be a think but not the former. Sorry I've asked on here, I didn't think it justified it's own topic. Thanks Emilio.

What would be the difference between "boulder ground up" and "boulder worked"? To my mind they're the same thing.

After a little research...I would say the northerly one...but in line with the main axis of the country, and bordering the eastern half of Switzerland.

Milan is the capital of this Italian region, while the geographical centre is further east, probably nearer Bergamo.

Lombardy is the English name, Lombardia the Italian.

Hello,

Not totally moderator specific but.....

Adding alpine routes where the guide gives no alpine grade.

I want to add some routes in Patagonia, the current guide to this area has a policy of not providing alpine grades but rather just technical pitch grades.

I don't want to guess an alpine grade for these routes as I don't have a clue and someone might take them seriously.

It will not let me add them without an alpine grade.

Can this be addressed please?

Also, it seems that Badger Rock is part of this area but ALSO has its own crag page (https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crags/badger_rock-3825) meaning that some Badger Rock problems are on one crag OR the other and some are on both (it's a bit of a mess).

I would suggest moving the Badgers Rock climbs to Kentmere Boulders, merging the duplicate climbs and renaming Kentmere to "Kentmere Boulders (including Badger Rock)" and remove the separate Badgers Rock page.  What do you think?

In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

not a crag request but related to logbooks....

when on my laptop if I go to a crag it displays the following for example: 

"You've ticked 35.5% (99 of 279 climbs) of this crag"

but if on my phone it only displays

"You've ticked 35.5% of this crag"

the latter is fairly meaningless without the extra info in the bracket, is it possible to make this visible in the mobile version too?

Also on a mobile you can only ever click on the link taking you to the weather tab within a crag once, if you then go onto the photos/video tab for example when you try to return to the weather tab nothing happens

Hi, sorry I forgot to reply to your email about the latter. I've updated the grade. It actually gets D+ on Camptocamp. The MB Granite vol 2 guide has the difficulties at 5a. This page linked on Camptocamp gives it D(+) 5b:

I've added you to  Kentmere Boulders. Normally, I'd not hesitate in merging  Badger Rock with it but there's a BMC RAD entry linked to Badger that's got important access info and we only support RAD entries linked to crags and not buttresses.

If you could move the duplicates within Kentmere to within a Badger Rock buttress, then I can move them over to the Badger crag.

Could I make a suggestion for a future update? I think it would be really useful if the map of the page were you add a new crag or change the pin location was the same style as the map on the public crag page. The public crag page style map is a lot more detailed and it is easier to accurately find where to drop the pin.

Thanks, James

In reply to James Oakes:

I left the Google map on the edit page as it has the Satellite view available (button above the map on the left) which is often easier to use for precise locations. I can probably add all 3 map styles tbh tho. I'll look into it.

 James Oakes 29 Oct 2020
In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:

Ah that makes sense. I guess the satellite map is perfect for most crags. It just happens that most of the crags I add are in massive forests so it is easier to use paths and other features that are more detailed on the other type of map.

Thanks.

Hi Paul,

I'm trying to track down a change in access to Horrington Hill down here on Mendip. I've been messaging the moderator and the BMC area rep who know nothing about the change on the UKC log to access not being allowed. The BMC still access as no problem. Along with a few others I spent some time cleaning old and new routes over the summer. I'd like to go back and finish the job next year. Clearly someone has changed the access on UKC for a reason. I'm struggling to track down the possible landowners at present.
