Crag features

A potentially very good wee crag that has been left in a fair mess by un-consulted retro-bolted and shoddy chopping of bolts.

All peg-reliant routes except Too Farr are currently defunct due to removal of pegs. A couple of bolts remain in strange positions, as do some sharp bolt ends.

The idiots who made this mess are politely requested to sort it out.

Ceasefarr - Has a good offset just right of the niche in the crack at about 1/3 height. Then the gear mentioned in the guide at the crack before the top traverse. Ok for lead but feels at least E3 5c. Private Farr - Was given a clean 08/2016 Yet so Farther/ The Art of CC - Two pegs back in which look like they'd help.

A fücking disgrace by both the bolters and choppers. Needs full bolt removal, peg replacement, a good scrub to get the moss off, accurate assessment of grades for onsight leads, and THEN maybe a good open debate about whether it should be bolted.

Yes! All the protection is pegs anyway

Should Farletter Crag be bolted???????????
