To clarify The Brad Pit situation - I was up there the same day with Fabi and Melissa.

a) Fabi stacked it on white wand and has busted his heel - he didn't climb all day.
b) BP was completely dry, so I dont think there was any chance of breakage - however, at the time of the chalking (on a previous day) that might have been a different situation. Fabi and Melissa both commented on the state of the problem - but it would have taken hours to try and clean the whole thing up. The tick marks were obscene - so they were all brushed off before leaving. I've no idea who put that chalk on there, but they are a f*cking idiot - There's no reason to cover the whole of the topout in chalk. It will need a good rain to clear up.
c) Neither Mason nor Mina were there.

Name and shame

I don't know their name, I've just seen them Working at The Works, and I'm not interested in witch hunts anyway.

I'm not suggesting that Fabi and Melissa were climbing BP while wet, but I have definitely seen posts of locals climbing routes while raining. And one's who really should know better.

Considering the number of indoor walls, concrete boulders and perma-dry crags surely there's always another option.

I disagree. People who can't embed photos properly should be shot.

Cleaned this up this morning.

.....and then you slap your left hand up the arête
What? That litte diagonal seam?
No, where all the chalk is
I'm not sure I can see what you mean
Where the rock stops being rock and starts being air
Can you tick mark it please
OK, there you go
I can't see those as they are disguised by all the other chalk
OK I'll put them 6" to the right
OK, so I go for the tick marks?
No, go 6" left where all the other chalk is and the rock runs out
OK, thanks, I think I've got that now

To be fair to Dave they may not be his. That boulder has been in a right state for ages - very stubborn ticks that need a pessure wash. There are some locals that should know better...
There's a pic on my blog from a couple of weeks ago here: http://www.gaz-softrock.blogspot.co.uk/2016/12/ticked-off.html?m=1

I took this photo and have pulled it as I feel I am being held responsible for the absolute fucking state this bloc is. Those who know Deux Faux Plus Reels know how popular it is and the state it gets into- just Google and you'll see.  In hindsight I should made more of an effort to remove the ticks and chalk prior to the photo and to be honest shouldn't have posted it up on UKC for punters to point fingers. Sam and I spent quite a time cleaning it up before we left with,ironically, a brush we found under the boulder. Those who know me personally know how much I detest tick marks.

I was one of the punters that criticised the photo (not you by the way), and tbh what do you expect? It was a fucking disgrace and yes I know the problem, and no I've never seen it as bad as that.

There were tickmarks up Elder Statesman at Curbar on Sunday, presumably from the day before. Even the jug on Elder Crack was ticked! Good effort to anyone trying it, but still...

Worst thing about that London wall thing is that it implies someone was likely toproping or at the very least heavily ab inspecting a very safe E5.
