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:

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)

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.

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.

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.

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!)

Just noticed when logging it that Postern Original (Winter) (VII 7) and Postern Variation (Winter) (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 (Winter) (VII 7) as Postern Original and restore it to its correct grade of VII 7, and attach the Rockfax link to Postern Variation.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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)?

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.

Also the Craig yr Undeb sector of  Fachwen Boulders still needs moving to  Union Rock. I guess this should also be renamed Union Rock (Craig yr Undeb) to eliminate confusion.

P.S. also the final problem at Union Rock, Don't try no Bows (f6B), should be moved to Clegir.
