Hanging rib at burbage yesterday was a bit of a mess of chalk after the weekend.  Never seen donkey lines there and cant for the world work out how they help.
I did my best with a brush.



more worrying was this..



Looks for all the world the same size as a standard builders bolster chisel. Cant recall it being there, but its been a while since I've been and it didn't look totally brand new.  Its just below the start of holds of the Hanging rib.

Terrace frist thing on Sunday. Perhaps not the worst but still a little bizarre.

I think that's been there donkeys years, but my photographic memory fails me.

I think that scar has been there years too.

Terrace area was more ridiculous week before last. I can only assume Stevie fucking Wonder and his cronies had been out trying it. Lines literally a foot long.

It would be redder if it was recent.

Been there for donkey's years hasn't it? But my photographic memory fails me. It would be redder if it was recent.

What I've never worked out is whether to call it a foothold or a handhold.

What use is a donk line to a blind man? Maybe if they'd found a white stick or a labrador glued to the hold....

Yeah - it didn't look uber fresh and I'm sure I'd have heard about it on here if new, just didn't recall it standing out so obviously.   (Finger for scale, innit  ;) ).

That was brilliant.  :clap2: Hopefully a few culprits see it and realise how pathetic they look with unnecessary excessive tick marks.

If anyone is out grindleford way tomorrow you might want to take a brush.





Unlikely to be climbers but still looks a mess.

what they wrote on the lip of the roof sums it up to me, both my feelings and their intelligence

Another reason to pic up any bits of chalk that have escaped from overturned chalk bags. Maybe not climbers (hopefully not) but possibly their chalk?

Good spot! Wonder if Doug noticed, he's a climber (or used to be).

Curbar was a disgrace last night. Great white finishing hold ticked badly, the upper arete of bens wall ticked about 5 times along it, footholds ticked, all of them almost! Bad landing lip holds ticked and numerous ticks on the groove itself. All the lines were thick ones aswell. Gorilla warfare was also chalked up badly, you don't need chalk on footholds!
please brush them off!
