A regular outdoor climbing session

One of our founder members - Lizzie Crofts - is up for the weekend, so this meet is with that in mind.but its for anyone and not just experienced climbers. Your own shoes would be handy, but we do have a few spare harnesses between us, but do ask before so we bring them along. There will be a £1 for subs for non-organisers and £3 for harness/gear hire.

    A great day - everyone really friendly and helpful, weather perfect ... but oh! the pain the next day!! :-) Thanks to everyone who loaned me various bits of kit - Elinor and Neil for their shoes (yes, I got around a bit!), Mike for his boots (!) and Dave for his harness. And thanks to Gerry for all his patience putting up with the swapping of the shoes and the boots etc!! I hope to purchase my own shoes for the Lake District trip so I hopefully won't be pestering people in future. A really enjoyable day.

    Great day out today. Weather was just right and the climbs were good for me too. It was lovely to meet some more members. I could have quite easily sat and looked at the view all eve. Thanks to the guys who provided ropes and advice.

    Hiya Linda..Sorry about that ..I've just 'tweeked' the map, so it should show the correct location..Its a left turn as you get up near to Heptonstall village and left again to a car park on Acres Lane (its a sports club car park with a honesty box)..Try and make it if its not too cold

    I'm not sure whether I can join you yet but in case I can please can someone confirm the location? If I click on the 'edit map' option next to the postcode on the meet up page the marker is in a different place to that given if I put the postcode into streetmap.co.uk - which shows it as being at the end of Acres Lane.

      Hi Linda. You will need to click on the words 'Heptonstall car park' to get the correct location. If you click on 'edit map' it just gives a random location to somewhere totally different and expects you to put the marker where you want to go. The point on the map is Heptonstall social club. The meeting place is the adjoining car park. If you click on satellite it all becomes clearer when you zoom in. The climb is a couple of hundred yards south west of car park

      good luck...

    No worries Lesley...I'll meet you at Leeds probably before then, but you'll be Ok. The worst thing just now is enduring the cold temperatures !

  • Lizzie C.

    Hey, sat and sun are both good...if the weather is any good (ie not snowing) then we should get out on both days. I'm in Spain at the moment so been very spoilt with the nice weather. I will text you when I'm back Kevin :)

    Yes I'd love to give it a go when my ankle mends. Do you mean to hire a pair from you/mike or is there somewhere else I can hire them. I am generally a size 8 though but would possibly fit into a 7 if they were men's fittings. Thanks Lisa

    Hiya Lisa...You can't really do much without some decent rock shoes..I have a spare pair of size 5,1/2 -6 and Mike has 1 or 2 spare pairs...Why not come along to a climbing wall when your ankle mends and hire a pair to get a feel of them ?

    Hi I was thinking of coming along but I do not have any climbing shoes and as it will be the first time I will have tried it I'm a bit reluctant to buy any new ones. Can I manage without or are there any I can borrow? I'm wanting to say yes but I also sprained my ankle about 3 weeks ago. It's healing but just reluctant to give a definite yes at the mo. if anyone can answer the above questions it would be great. Lisa
