when does cleaning become chipping? 21-Apr-2005 At 11:38:08 AM LittleMac
>another question:
>if the same climb has both face and crack options ( ie it can be done
>as either a face or a crack climb) are these two different climbs? or one
>climb with possibly two different grades?

Depend how much of the face you clean really, if you clean enough you would have enough room to put up two climbs I imagine. I am assuming this is Mt Alex and if so there are several instances where climbs have been described as follows.

Climb #1
Climb the crack Grade ()

Climb #2
Climb face to right of crack avoiding crack Grade ()

The most obvious instance of this is Fido, Spot, Rover etc at Dog Rocks. Another example would be Where Beagles Dare and Bottle of Smoke etc.

Given that it is a quarry clean as much of the face as possible. Also do you know who to contact in regards to access to the quarry near Rabbit Rocks (the one with the climbs at back right. I have done the climbs (as I am sure you have) but at last check access was unknown, I was thinking that I might suss this out and get this put in the next guide seings as it's due for renewal.

Anyone else with info on this would be great as well.
