Someone (ahem!) Keeps scraping off the moss on lower Castle! Truly, the moss really does dry up and blow away if left alone. When it's scraped off, it remains in a dirty pile at the base of the rock for nearly the rest of the year.

I appreciate the intent of the cleaner though. But it does not improve the quality of the pitches down there. Foot and handholds are and have always been clean where they're needed even if no one does any moss removal, and you're not tromping around in a green carpet for weeks afterwards. Jun 19, 2018

Perhaps it would make more sense to put this underneath Castle Rock and make 2 sections? Seems strange to me to have it separated out this way... Aug 5, 2018
