A little known but fun wee training area in Athens is the railway trestle, just by North Ave and Willow, on the river. Its made of naturally hewn sandstone, and covered in flat crimps and slopers, with occasional bore-hole monos. Theres even a couple of bolted anchors, although Ive never seen anyone there with a rope. The most usual use of the block is the endless circular traverse, for fine finger training (about V1 forever)

I propose a thread of folk's problems down at the trestle. Made up something fun? Post a marked-up photo...
If theres enough responses I might edit them together into a pdf. Yes, I am a geek.

I'll get the ball rolling with a little something I just found..."Heres Jonny - V3"
Red Holds, tracking, standing start. Enjoy
