βeta: Went up in approach shoes, kicked loose block off by last bolt before anchor. Hopefully all good now.

βeta: Loose rock flake 3/4 of way up. Doesn’t seem likely to come down currently but is an obvious hold. Cracking route

βeta: Loved this one, nice and easy with lots of options all the way up. Once top-roped my belayer could barely keep up. The only disconcerting moment on the lead was being unable to see where the penultimate bolt was due to the curvature of the arete, but by that stage the climbing is easy enough to just push on through.

βeta: Not a bad route. Didn't enjoy as much as i thought i would! Probably gonna solo it as will be more enjoyable that way! Nick trad climbing is pointless. If i had my way every rock face in the world would be bolted!!

βeta: A great choice got beginers, but still very enjoyable for those with experience. Nick get over it. Damn trad climbers! no doubt you don't use chalk and like hugging trees too.

βeta: Nick, its only a few bolts - they dont damage the ozone layer or melt the ice caps. In fact all they do is allow more people to enjoy a days climbing. If you dont like clipping bolts go to a gritstone crag and bag yourself a few E7's.

βeta: This route rocks my world, just make sure you're the first up it or you'll have to queue all day as everybody in this sector has to climb this at least once per visit.
