Fragmentation of information is a disaster.  However, I think that, in addition to 27crags, this would also apply to any fb pages that might be set up.

I will use the facilities offered by 27crags, I will also submit here.  I would also hope that in deciding on consensus grades for problems, information on 27crags would be used.

It's not a quaint attitude and this may be the case (i.e. going teh way of Rockfax). However, sites like 27crags do offer a lot of enhanced functionality which aren't offered elsewhere and I suppose that's the carrot.

A weekend at St Bees - good place and a nice summer venue..

It can be a pain alright, login, go to the map, left click and a menu will appear that allows you to add a boulder.  Once added, go to topo, click on the relevant boulder, and add problem.

Good stuff, it's starting to get a nice few problems in it now.  Remember that you can log your ascents and give grade opinions too.  Also, the addition of vids/pics is nice.

For those who are interested, I have started adding problems to, albeit slowly but just to get the ball rolling, I'll put in a few per day and with other input, it might grow.

The site takes a bit of getting used to but it's a good resource so if you would like, please add boulders, areas, sectors, your ascents and associated opinions. It would allow for some kind of consensus on grades for old and new problems.

IT's been pretty good for the last couple of summers, would seep for periods but in general dry.  It was hard to predict though, probably something to with tide height and/or easterly winds.  Sand height, usually the holds would be at about 7 foot so nice to climb on.  Seems to have got pasted over the winter or summer...

Hi Francesco, Yes there are bouldering places near Cork - in Kerry (The Gap of Dunloe and the Black Valley are probably best).  However, the summer is not the best bouldering season!  There are also a new bouldering wall for you to train at if you would like.

In addition to enjoyment, I'm competitive against myself, the climbs, and a grading system. So for me, and in general, it's the sport of rock climbing for which I train. Will have to agree to differ on this one,
