Well, howbout as part of the (initial) 'development' of 'your' new crags, you take into account the inevitable primary(poo-poo) & secondary(litter) human waste ... Having discovered & 'developed' a few cragz during The-Grand-Epoch-Of-The-HEX, I know that it is not just the rock that excites & motivates --- it is also the natural-ambience of the (spirit of) place ... itz not too hard to dig a shit-pit, off to the side of the crag, place a big rock either side , then straddle these with a log seat --- all very rusticly-charming as the tweeting-dicky-birds relax that rat-race-stressed-sphinta ............... much better than stepping-in a gnarly-great-grogan, just when the leader is yelling for slack ...... one or two poly-weave bags for rubbish can be left hanging discreetly on the snapped-off stub of a tree-branch , which YOU as the 'responsible' crag-developer can carry-out every now & then , happy in the knowledge that etc,etc,etc ...

If you get it clear in ur head , grass-hopper, then we can keep the inevitable tertiary(whinging on the inter-net) human waste to a minimum ...

*wipes bum & throws soiled paper into dug-pit, then sprinkles some dirt on top , all ready for the next punter...*
