As posted previously, this Sunday saw us up on the “Red Monkey” doing some much needed maintenance on the rock gardens. As regulars to the Chase will know, there are three rocky descents in this section so Frank aptly christened them “Tom”, “Dick” and “Harry”. All three require work but first a diversion was cut so we could work in safety. This was to be a permanent route that would become a waymarked ‘short cut’ for those that don’t fancy the rocks. With haste, branches were trimmed, top soil dug off and way marker posts planted. Meanwhile, the “Rock Splitters” (Martin and Steve) fired up the generator and turned the large rocks into Swiss cheese before slicing them into manageable chucks with the wedges and feathers.
