FMC Evening Climbing tonight!
Jack Scout Cove

The evening climbing tonight was supposed to be a Lundy training meet, however this is not now happening due to folks not being available etc. It's a fairly limited venue, so I'd be choosing somewhere else to go if I were you! It was very hot out there in the sun yesterday so I'd choose somewhere in the shade! Post on here or on the WhatsApp group if you are going out!

What was your time Andy Chambers ?

Have you tried arriving in a Range Rover and ordering from the bottom of the wine list?

At least they asked us to leave this time instead of passive-aggressively putting the chairs on tables around us.

Completed Lakeland 100 race at weekend (actually 105 miles) Weather conditions were "interesting". Very tired, but no damage, however it may be a few days before I can face putting rock shoes on! Photos are leaving Coniston Friday evening and returning Sunday morning. Joanna Goorney did the 50 and was 1.5 hours faster than last years time, a great effort in unpleasant conditions. ...

Outstanding achievement John!

Well done John! πŸ’ͺ

Wow, well done πŸ‘

Well done John. Probably the Hodge Close skinny dipping last week made the difference in performance

Brilliant effort. Congratulations

Wow, well done John! πŸ‘

Incredible! Good effort everyoneπŸ‘

Fantastic John, although your legs are twice as long as us mere mortals, which means you only did half the distance πŸ˜€

Fantastic effort John! Bob Graham next year!

An excellent effort John and well done..........

Well done John.

Well done John πŸ˜€πŸ‘

FMC Evening Climbing
Warton Main Quarry
Thursday night

This meet was due to be on tomorrow night but has been moved due to there being a better weather forecast for Thursday!

Plenty of lower grade sports routes to be done on the upper terrace and some longer ones lower down! But why not get on some trad? Deceptive Bends is one of the best routes of its grade in Lancashire and Plastic Iceberg (top pitch) has just recently been cleaned!

Please note that there is an evening walk planned to coincide with this meet. Hopefully the walk meet leader is aware the climbing meet has been switched to Thursday? Meeting in The Malt Shovel in Warton village afterwards!

Inventory - i.e. list of protection for Peel Off at Witches Quarry as deduced from what's missing from my rack since MY peel off!
By the way in all the excitement I didn't clock who was kind enough to retrieve it from the crag and look after it for me (?) but thanks are certainly due to them as well as to Chris for the belay, all present for tender care at the scene and Donnie for lift to and presence at Burnley General, to the staff of which enormous thanks are also due, as well as at Blackburn Royal in 3 visits so far since.
PS no rush for return of gear since it seems I'll be out for months not weeks. ☹️
PPS have you got my rope as well please?

Sorry to read of your injury(?) Martin. Hope you mend quickly

Take care and recover well, we all want to see you back on the rock

Argh. Sorry to hear this Martin. Hopefully you won't be out for too long.

If your going to fall off you may as well do it properly! Hope you manage to get back on the rock soon and get all your gear back m

FMC Evening Climbing
Thursday night
Humphrey Head

This week's evening climbing meet is scheduled to be at Humphrey Head. This venue is likely to have limited appeal to the masses and the fact that the person who wanted to go there can't go (me), folks may wish to select a more suitable venue? If you do, please post on here and on the WhatsApp group.

What a great bunch of routes. Very jealous.

I too thought Crocodile Crack was uphill for HVS. Fabulous route that - and the others too

Hard to believe Tophet Wall was put up in 1923, last pitch must have been full on.

Hi Folks. It's the intro weekend at Stair and Barbecue.
Please let us know by Thursday if you're coming
Need to know how many for food purposes. Thanks

Seen them up close like that many times, but never when I have my decent camera gear with me. Park yourself on the Mach Loop to get images like that.

Would have provided my best next step!

Anyone going from round here?

Hi, is there a particular place people usually park for here? πŸ™‚

Myself and John Hickman are setting off at 2pm from Poulton.

Sadly turned a bit damp tonight! Wasn't forecast so not happy! Got a couple of routes done though.
