ok I'll have a crack. Opinion- many of the Bluies cracks that have a rep for being safe easy beginners routes aren't as safe as commonly thought. A lot of the rock inside the cracks on routes like The Obituary and even Gently Mine is pretty soft. Despite Mike's gear testing experiments, I'm very hesitant on calling that gear bombproof, especially if cams are placed. These are good routes to climb that deserve respect and lots of gear.

An area with a bunch of 14-18 sport climbs would be popular and valuable.
