What on earth did you put on here Martin Dale as fb has removed it due to "hate speech" 😳 A new 1st for you
Great app. Turn every trip to the wall into a competition. Or just log all your climbs.As our routes are still being set, it's a great time to announce that we'll be running the full Griptonite package here at PrestonWall. With an interactive app that allows you to scan a QR code placed at the start of a climb, the app will load that climb and allow you to log your send! More than that it has a huge array of data to allow you to track your progress against your friends or just yourself. We're excited for it! ... See MoreSee Less

Great effort lads!
Great outing....thanks for being led round the Crag
Every credit heading up into the mists lads. A long time since I had the optimism to do that! All good routes too.
Proper day out guy's 🥇
**Evening Climbing - Thursday 29th July**
We had planned to go to Winewall Quarry, near Colne this evening. Weather is looking very wet so probably not worth going. I'm working this evening and can't make it, but people may want to organise something indoors? ... See MoreSee Less
**Big Walk - 6th/7th Aug **
**We are still looking for a volunteer to coordinate this!**
- Richard Duerden is now unable to run this meet and has asked if anyone would be happy to step up and organise it. The idea of the meet was to tackle one of the bigger Lakes walks / horseshoes. Based at Langdale. ... See MoreSee Less
FMC Evening Climbing - Thursday night!

'Fraid not for Thursday. Work 🙄
High Crags Meet - 24th & 25th July
This coming weekend is our first official post-lockdown hut meet at STAIR. Myself & Martin Dale were due to coordinate this, but Martin now has other commitments and I can only come along on Sunday.
Currently the weather looks cooler but ok for the weekend and obviously the high crags will have had a good dry spell. That’s the aim, but can be adapted dependant on who is coming.
The hut is open to members in the traditional way. Members may wish to adapt things to be more cautious. We should be able to spread out and keep the windows open for ventilation. Camping or personal vans to sleep outside at Stair is possible. Just coming up for either day to walk or climb would also be most welcome.
It would be great if someone can step forward and arrange things on Saturday. Anyone keen and suggestions for crags please? ... See MoreSee Less
More P wall news!That's it folks! Our new lead wall is complete and the renovation of the old blue walls as well. With ANOTHER hold delivery arriving today the setters are in heaven. New walls, new holds, no problem! ... See MoreSee Less
Looks like by the time it’s up and running I should be up to making my climbing comeback 👍🤣
Dow Crag, Sunday. ... See MoreSee Less
Gutted I missed this one damn covid 😫
Looks like a grand day out! Sorry I couldn't be there 🙁
Great day oot! Cheers Stephen Clark for organising!
Did you do the E4?
The gear people are wearing on some of these pics, suggests that it wasn't that hot and humid up there? The last couple of times I've been out have been so unpleasant (despite climbing in morning shade). that I decided to knock it on the head until things cool down a bit.
Nick Hepburn - I took some photos of your friends on Catacomb, Dow Crag on Sunday. They may see them here or please pass them on via Ali. ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks Steve, good shot. Another route I've done on Dow that I can't remember a thing about! I'll see if I can get these across.

OK as we don't have much interest tonight and some can't make it we have a breakaway 'non' meet at Attamire tomorrow evening. Messrs Fenna, Clark and Fenna will be going. Get in touch if you fancy some Yorkshire bolt action, or go for a walk and wave at us 🙂
Would you look at that, we're nearly there!
The new lead wall from Kong is nearly finished and looking fantastic!
Alongside that they've been installing the angle changes on the back walls and painting. Champions! ... See MoreSee Less
East Buttress Scafell
Dry rock and sunshine up on Scafell. Met up with Dave Cundy and had a great day on 'The Centaur' and 'Mickledor Grooves'. two cracking routes. 'The Centaur' has to be one of the best HVS's in the country weaving up a very steep piece of rock. James McHaffie was up there as well trying out Dave Birketts New Horizons which goes at E8 6C, he decided to leave the lead for another day. ... See MoreSee Less
Centaur is fabulous, I did it with Nobby and Nick a few years ago and got done for speeding on the way home😩😩
The reason James Mchaffie didn't lead it was probably because he'd had too much beer in Stuart Wood's bar the night before!😂😂😂
'Caf' working New Horizons
Well done Happy Caver. Glad you got Centaur done eventually.
It might not look like much, but this represents a mammoth step forward to getting the wall up and running. The reception desk is the hub of any good climbing wall and how it flows for staff and customers is key. ... See MoreSee Less

Of course the meet is cancelled due to Covid, but nothing stopping individuals going. A lot of work has been done here since our last visit when it was a jungle! Re-bolting and belay platforms etc! Sadly, I won't be going. ... See MoreSee Less
