Bit of cleaning done over the last couple of weekends to bring some neglected climbs back into contention for the summer. There is are still a few worth working on. If you can spare an hour at the end of your climbing day the help would be much appreciated.

Going from left to right, picking out the more commonly climbed routes:
Lower Cliff:
The Antagonist - needs cleaning
My Brilliant Career - recently cleaned but probably needs a follow up
Frankenstein&WT - recently cleaned
Flapjack - recently cleaned

Main wall
Easy end all good - Plum Jamb area- Pie in the Sky
Skating Away good as usual
Musk, Hashish and Blood recently cleaned
Glass Slippers - good
Pancake Flake, Digit Dancer, No Steel, Full Steel, Double Barrel, Cracker Barrel all good
Anything right of Cracker Barrel - bad
I've never done Thunderbirds/Rubber Things so I don't know if these are worth restoring - they are the only grade 17s on the cliff so it would worth giving them a go.
Cordial Kids is worth cleaning.
