Dug the grass off the top of Registered Rhymenecologist at the far end of Baslow a few days ago. Great highball .

RR is a great bit of esoterica. Did you finish direct over the capping block? It was knee deep in turf when I did the problem so I rocked left onto the big foothold at the top of the arete.

On a side note, is that Neil in the photo? If so, great to see him back on the rock again.

Good job Mark. I had a look at this last winter and thought it looked really great. Much foreshortened in your photo and the topout looked tricky.

I finished same as you I think Andy-  RH on the capping block and rocking onto the cleaned ledge on the left arÍte arÍte. It seemed the logical finish.
Its a bit foreshortened, bear in mind thatís a big Moon pad at the bottom. And Neil is about 6ft 4 !

Cleaned:
Chin Mania 7A and Chin Grinder 7A+ at Froggatt (below Downes' Buttress)

Chin Mania is nice - good rock, pleasant climbing and a decent landing, can either swing more left and mantle into scoop or go slightly more direct.

Chin Grinder is actually a lot better than it looks - more independent and better climbing than I expected. It would probably make a decent highball with a few pads - I didn't have any but I had played on the moves on a rope whilst cleaning it, it was soft for E6 as a headpoint but would prob feel it os (with no pads) didn't really inspect the landing too much, it's a bit sloping.

I've done a load of spray on Instagram already but just think it's worth putting the word out as widely as possible.
The Satellite Boulder on the Chevin is in great nick. Very dry tonight, no seepage. Gemenid Trail, Under A Full Moon, and one of the hard things to its right were clean. I brushed up The Radiant which had lost its finishing holds to moss. The tree cover is still comprehensive so it should stand up to a good bit of rain before it wets out. Get to it!

Cleaned up Physical Graffiti on the Quarry Buttress at Black Rocks, opposite the Railway Slab. E3 6b in guide but good highball 6C, climbs much better than it looks.

Black Tor - The Looking Glass 7A+ black star int guide. Free of scrittle and obviously bone. Desperate though - I couldnít get off the deck (assuming itís not a French start). Other stuff up there well scrubbed. Didnít get as far as Seldom Seen Kid.

Brushed off a load of the muck below the drainage streaks at Conies today - mostly the streak under Lamiche/Beak Forest, plus a bit under Lamprecht/Simpson. As dry as Iíve seen it.

Cleaned up Containment at Bentley Brook yesterday.

A low sidepull has broken off and it's been repeated, though not by me. We could fathom a sequence onto the top arete without the hold, but on the only videos I've seen people also used the missing hold for their left foot to unlock the top section.

Be curious if anyone goes and does it what the new beta is.
