Down a hole😲

Don't know. Meg where's your Dad?

Near thorn crag ?

We were walking past Juniper Gulf pot hole on the Allotment on Ingleborough. Cold place today - not like recent days

Potential for some bolted sport climbs in a drought😎

As Karen Hicks said, I assume you are down that slimy slot squirming about in mud n shoite?

Inappropriate footwear

Comment on Facebook

And insufficient finger strength

Looks entirely appropriate to me 😀

More appropriate footwear, and enough finger strength😉

Depends what you intend to do in them. If your intention is to photograph them and/or touch a wall with them, they both should be fine. LOL 😁😉

I did have both feet on the wall and was holding on a big hold (the top of the wall) with one hand.

My concern isn’t the whether the shoes are appropriate; it’s about the socks! 😱😂

I’ve had quite a few entries for the photo competition but there is still room for lots more.

It all a bit of fun, so come on, dig those photos out and get them to me by this Thursday so I can sort and label them in time for the social evening on the 7th April.

Don’t forget you are the judges on the night whether you have entered or not. So keep your diary clear - you are required!

The Zoom meeting will open at 7pm and the show will begin at 7.30pm.

If you haven’t joined a Zoom meeting before and are uncertain how it all works please don’t hesitate to contact me. There will be opportunities to chat to friends/pals/buddies/mates - we’d love to see you there.

Thanks for the reminder Richard. Did I read that this time entries can be from the past, given the inevitable paucity of more topical photos?

No Caroline Webb - I've just found the original 11th March email - "last year OR SO" is the normal way of things. This time it's the “or so” that is to be made more flexible". So that's alright then. 😄

# **LITTLE LANGDALE - Appeal for Volunteers!**

All members should have received an email from Mike Howe this morning, asking for volunteers to help out with some of the final tasks to complete the renovation works.

Over the last 3 months, extensive renovation has been carried-out at the hut, including re-wiring throughout, new lighting, new electric showers, plastering on the ground floor and some practical improvements to the kitchen.

A huge amount of work has already been done by David Hicks, Karen Hicks, Andrew Hird, Liz Hird & Tony Hulme

There are a few things left to do, mainly decorating and cleaning. Anyone with skill at ceramic tiling would also be really useful. If you can spare any time, please consider helping out. We have covid arrangements in place to ensure you will not need to come into contact with anyone outside your household.

Please have a read of the email and contact Drew directly if you can help - langdale@fyldemc.org

It should soon clean up with a bit of use. A couple of days ago I went to Sedgwick Bridge for the first time in ages and a fair bit of hold "improvement" has taken place. Some footholds have been carefully roughed up. This one is about 5cm wide and pretty flat. If you can't get your foot to stick on that without a bit of doctoring you've got some serious footwork issues to sort out 😆

Surely you know a few scrubbers nobby ?

Where's that Martin Dale ? It looks great. Is it vertical or just off?

Pointed crimpin. Denis Gleeson in action - now there's a Lancs hero.

Far too cold yet for the garage wall.

Now I just need the field to stay dry so that I can walk there 😀

Hmm! We will have to make sure we finish climbing in time to get there at least for one pint!

I wonder if we emailed them they might be more lenient with shutting time. After all the time of 9pm is their choice. Think the law will still be 11pm.
