wouldn't a peg bashed in the top of the groove make it a bit safer?

Hear hear! And while you're at it the sloper he's hanging off could REALLY do with a damn good chipping!

you could always just bolt it! actually while your there, just bolt a ladder on it!

Or you could just scramble up to the top from around the back, this is so much easier... and safer! Why everybody insists on taking the hard route I don't know...
