None of the routes is fully cleaned and ready to lead, but most just need a good brushing now. I intend to pop down one night after work and work on finishing them off.

The route are:

Flimnap the pirate VS 4c
Valine VS 4c
Green Wall VS 4b
Reeling in the years VS 4c

Nice work everyone. I was thinking that some of the easier routes could do with work to intice more climbers into the venue. I spent yesterday afternoon working on Dandelion Grove (20m Sev 4a) near the White Slabs area. The top out has been dug right back and I must have removed about half a ton of turf and loose rock from the route. Whilst it still needs a little work lower down and a thorough brushing, I reckon it'll be a cracking route when finished and one of the longest in the quarry with decent protection. I'll finish it off at some point but if anyone esle fancies doing a bit in the meantime feel free.

Regards, Will.

Good effort boys, when they are finnished somone should let the BMC area commity know they have been cleaned and perhaps put a post on the uk climbing forum.

Regards Derek
