The crag has been neglected for 20 years, so its makes sense that it is scruffy, but there is plenty of good rock. If you could let me know which routes had glue ins that you thought were eroding that would be great, since I put in a lot of those in myself and want to keep the climbing safe. I also don't see how they could be eroding so much in only 6 months. Jul 6, 2015

Having climbed all over the world, this ranks as one the most crumbly walls ive seen bolted (probably worse than Sydney sea cliffs). Holds are covered in sand and edges will snap off on you on every burn. But good fun none the less. I noticed some of the new glueins already eroding around the edges on the anchors, so a little scary cleaning! Jul 6, 2015
