Cracking 4 hour session LancasterWall. Great venue, well set routes for all abilities. Really bad location at the wrong side of lLancaster in a crappy industrial estate with shocking roads no lighting or signposts. Mediocre coffee , lack of homemade cakes and a bad playlist. Still tempted to go back the bouldering was ace. ... See MoreSee Less

I think ITV failed to research how to Abseil. How not to use a figure 8 Emmerdale

Comment on Facebook

That's how I always use one. "Maybe" that's where I've been going wrong

Last time I used a figure of 8, I had to stop halfway down and wrap the rope round my leg several times! Way too slick! It was at Mother Scarys!

A long time ago I thought I would try a classic abseil. With hindsight from the top of Goat Crag after doing Bitter Oasis was not my best idea, good job I was wearing sturdy trousers

Emmerdale figure 8 gives zero friction. They have just passed the rope through the big hole

I have done many classic abseil in winter just knowing the technique is so useful

Certainly a novel use of a fig 8

Anyway, none of you should be watching such tosh on TV!πŸ˜‚

I just love Emmerdale ❀🀣!

Morning all. Just looking at joining the FRA and there's a question of whether I'm a member of a UKA affiliated club, or a non UKA affiliated club, or neither. Is this a thing the FMC do? πŸ€”
TIA

We're affiliated to the BMC but not UKA, don't know if BMC are affiliated as part of their competition climbing role

Sorry Danial, what's the FRA? I've heard of FROYCT!πŸ˜‚

As far as I'm aware, we are only affiliated to the BMC. Not sure if that's classed as a non-UKA (UK athetics?) affiliated club?

Danial, join Bowland Fellrunners, laid back and very friendly!

Yes. The club organise regular and ad-hock walks in addition to climbs , cave meetings and mountain bike rides

The club doesn’t have sections or compartments just the common bond for adventure (to whatever level) and camaraderie. We walk, scramble, climb, cave, swim, kayak, canoe, biking and more.

Walkers, who can find their way over the fells, are always welcome!

After the Gravel bike slides at the social I headed out to the dales on Friday. Settle, Malham, Mastiles Lane, Kilnsey, Arncliffe,Litton, stainforth and back to Settle. Mostly great quiet roads with the great off-road Mastiles Lane in the middle ... See MoreSee Less

That's a brilliant route! It think I did it the opposite way round

You and I once did about half of that and I was knackered! I think we also did something similar with Nick Hepburn along as well?

Mythos?

Much Mythos (probably too much eh Martin Dale?) was imbibed but I think these were Alfa on draught at the Street Food Bar, much loved of David Wood. πŸ€ͺ

Hey, I'm the cover star of the latest FMC magazine! How exciting is that?

We didn't know the name or location of the route, but on seeing it enlarged, I can reveal that it is "Oktobermonde", 6c+ at Palionosis Bay, Kalymnos. It wasn't in the guide and I wasn't aware of the grade! It has since appeared on UKC logbooks. I just tried it out of interest and managed a clean ascent. It's pulling on razors!

So when are they bringing in mandatory risk assessments..?πŸ™„

Well I once rescued a couple off the top of one of the pinnacles and was told there should have been a warning sign saying how it was harder to get down than up (go figure).

Hi, does anyone in the club have any gear for sale suitable for snowboarding or generally warm and waterproof, including snow boots, to suit grandchildren aged 15 (5ft 11) and 12 years?
