If you have recently climbed a route, found it in poor nick and subsequently left it in a more climbable state, please put the route name, crag, area and date of cleaning below. Feel free to add any other notes you feel might be useful, but no beta...don't want to blow those on-sights!


Linking to the crag in question on the wiki would be very helpful. We are currently developing a page where we are going to lay out some guidelines for the best approach to cleaning routes.
