Interesting, and scary to think anyone would try climbing there.  When I first saw those on a trip to the U.K, I wondered how anyone could climb them.  Its too loose to rock climb, I couldn't see how to place anything (nuts, bolts, screws, tools . . . whatever) in the chalk, and there's also the fickle British weather.  Guess it is possible if you've got the 'cajones' and choose your route carefully.
