A 'Sunday' climbing session

By request, the 'regular' weekend climbing session will now alternate: Sunday of one weekend with the Saturday of the next. This is because some folks can't make it on Sundays and vice-versa. There's a meet on Saturday June 22nd, so this will be the first Sunday in the new 'style' and after this one, they will be mostly down in the Peak District

    Many thanks Nigel...sounds like it took a lot of work getting it to here. I've d/loaded it and its a tidy 59mbs, but it works, so thanks again for all your efforts...and James, if its any consolation, the climb is now VS,5A in the new Yorks. Gritstone guide, but I'm damn sure I've done easier 5B moves !

      Agreed.!!!!!! Still, mega effort and a 'no surrender' attitude wins the day, eh!

    Hi Simona..Long time, no see !...Of course its OK...No need to bring a rope; there's plenty of ropes, just looking at the list of RSVPs. though also looking at the list, there's no-one else from your end so far, to share with. Hope its a bit warmer for you !

    September 6, 2013

  • simona g.

    Hello Kevin &C. My son and I would like to join in this Sunday, would that be ok? Would you like me to bring my rope? And is there anyone coming from Manchester who would like to travel together?
    Thank you
    Simona

    Just been informed today that there is an event in Otley on this day. I go via Pool-in-Wharfedale, and not Otley.......but others may.
    It's the Otley Vintage Transport Extravaganza 10am - 4.00pm..........so if you drive via Otley, just be aware that it could be a little busy on that day.

    September 5, 2013

    • Kevin

      Thanks for the tip, Nigel..If we come the usual route down Pool Bank, you don't have to go near Otley

    Morning Kathy...To avoid embarassment I've deleted your messages that didnt make any sense !....but yes, a harness is in the bag and a screwgate or 2 if you need them..Dave A. has plenty of spare gear now, but I don't think he's getting there 'til later

    September 6, 2013

  • Kathy T.

    Ps....ignore those earlier messages... That's me accidentally sending unfinished messages!!

    Looking forward to Sunday .... Really enjoyed Almscliffe last time. I just wondered if anyone has a harness I could borrow? I am hoping to get one bought but it might not happen by Sunday.

  • Dave A.

    Got this jog in the park to do....." Yeah Right more like a VHD 4c blindfolded. Will be at almscliff when we have finished the race? Oh found my guide book!!!!

    • Nigel A

      It'll just be a 'walk in the park' for you Dave lol..........hope it goes well.

      September 4, 2013

  • Kevin

    OK folks; Almscliffe it is.

    September 2, 2013

  • Kevin

    I would'nt mind suggestions for this meet. As some are doing a run in the Ripon area do you just want either Almscliffe or Brimham up ?. I know we've been to both recently but there's obviously plenty to go at, at both venues...Because there's lots of appetite for the Peak venues, I thought we'd alternate Yorkshire/Peak week by week, but comments are welcome

    September 2, 2013

    • Ed L.

      Yes I agree with James. So it's another vote for Almscliffe from me.

      1 · September 2, 2013

    • Nigel A

      I don't mind either, but enjoy Almscliffe.......

    I cant guarantee I can make this as I have got some dates mixed up, to avoid cancelling late and you being able to make alternative arrangements I will say no now and you can make other plans if you want to. Thanks Kaz

  • Kevin

    Hi Andrew..I'll have a chat with others today and get a venue up on here tomorrow (It''ll show on the Google map embedded and I'll stick a grid ref. on. ) In all likelihood it'll be something up in Yorkshire , given that we're down in the Peak today.
