You are doing a great job of the online Rosea guide, Keiran. It still hasnít made the place any more popular. I have been up there on 4 of the past 6 days and have only seen two other parties on the cliff. Not that I am complaining. To be able to go to one of the worlds great cliffs and have it to yourself is my idea of heaven. Particularly as the weather has been near perfect up there [except for one short spell on New Years Day when it got a bit windy and cold when we were half way up Last Rites] Ė mostly sunny days in the high teens.
A couple of observations on the guide. I see that you have dropped Renate back to its original grade of 17 [the Baxter guide had it at 18]. I know grading is a subjective business but it seemed comparable in difficulty to Gillian or anything on the first 2 pitches of Requiem and a step up in difficulty from Heretic or Bubbles. I would say pitches of 16, 18, 17.
Pitches 2 and 3 of Abysmal Brute are 19 not 1 and 2.
The whole first pitch of The Stinger is very dirty at the moment, I had to put the aid back into it to clean off some of the holds. Which is a pity as the upper pitches are sustained 14ish, clean and some of the best easier climbing on the cliff. It needs some kind soul with a wire brush, a trowel, and some ets to aid the whole pitch cleaning it properly as they go.
