Rock: Route perpetually wet @ Crux for last few months straight

New construction above KP and storm water run off has been directed towards the cliff. As a result Wages crux pockets and it’s crux itself, have been perpetually wet for months now. Even weeks after the last bit of rain it is still seeping and wet. Hopefully once construction finishes storm water is directed somewhere else… fingers crossed.

ethic

Climbing at 'KP' has a long, rich history and the cliffs are used by a huge number of climbers of very varied styles and abilities. For these reasons ethics here are complicated. However here are some undisputed points:

  • All top roping should be done through your own quickdraws to minimize wear on the anchors.
  • Don't ever chip holds.
  • Don't paint on any new initials.
  • Retrobolting is acceptable only after consensus is reached with a large cross section of the 'KP' climbing community. New bolts that don't meet this criteria are chopped, often within a few days.
