        It's like all the good plants have been chopped and bad ones left. There's plenty of opportunity for stings when grovelling up at the end of pitches

          Yes Derek, the top could do with a de-nettle of some sort.

          If thinking of an evening or a weekend we could head down together and give it a bash (as it were)

            evening good for me if you want to come along, otherwise I'll pop down one sunny morning :-)

              Hi! I was at the BMC meeting when you guys nicely volunteered to sort out the Anchors at Aldery (I was the person who reported the vandalism to the BMC, unfortunately too late, and got shot down at the Peak meeting when it was first raised. The MONC meeting!)
              I was wondering if you had managed to progress the work and what the outcomes of you observations/efforts were. I have a friend (just the one?) who is thinking of taking a small party there and she was trying to find if it was sorted yet.

                Most pop routes still climbable but top out of clothesline, Carmen and more so Notre cracks due to loose rock or vegetation maybe a grade harder and bit adventurous. Some bolts on top of clothesline slab still inplace as missed by BMC on first sweep. Being removed soon.

                Not yet, we will be there Tuesday evening, climbing and planning (I suspect).
