I'll be there.

I’m thinking of coming if anyone needs a lift in πŸš™

I'll be there at 7ish. Lift from Fleetwood if anyone wants one?

Pretty shoddy turn out last night at the wall! Just 3 of us. Where are all the new people?πŸ€”

Jonathon Barron might be a new person. Kirsty McCann is injured.

Is the guy on the left small or far away?

Hes nicking off with the cash stashed in the side pocket!

I'd like it known that I am Lancashire til I the die - and only seconded to the Yorkshire Mafia on a consultancy basis.

Myself and Joanne are interested! If Jo is allowed to hire an ebike?

We're hoping to come up for the Sunday, what sort of route were you thinking of?

Did somebody mention cake?

Great beer n food a la Red Lion
Thank to Martin Dale for organising all the evening meets - look forward to next year's!!!

Me n Nick Hepburn were there yesterday!πŸ˜‰

Beautiful spot. Been a favourite since 1965 (even if it did collapse on me 0one day!) and it was hardly mentioned till the bolts went in. No bad thing - I've enjoyed 2 afternoons on those bolts already. The flattering grades help!

When are you in Kalymnos? and are you staying at Pegasus???πŸ™‚

ps. Glad to hear of retirement lucky you πŸ˜„

Five Ten pink Anasazi lace-ups available in TK Max, Squires Gate! Size 9.5/44. Β£49.99. if anyone's interested? They fit me snugly, and I take 42 in La Sportiva and Scarpa. I take size 44 in trainers. ... See MoreSee Less

Nice. I thought the days of 'real' bargains in TK's were long gone. I've stopped going in in recent years since anything outdoorsy seemed to be nowt but Trespass and Regatta. If I was nearer I'd try 'em on. Who knows what size?? My LS Katana are 42.5 and good; my LS Miura are 43.5 and too tight really! I would add here "go figure" except it's a nasty American term which I hate.

FMC Evening Climbing - Tonight!

Denham/Curry/Social

Our last official outdoor evening climbing meet of the season is tonight at Denham. Come on down and do a route or two, then it's beers (and food, if you want) down The Red Lion, Wheelton. They serve food until 8pm. Sun sets at around 7:30pm. No curry though last time I checked ☹️.

Well done Steve! πŸ’ͺ

Nice one Steve, in answer to your question, eerrrr......we'll see🀣🀣

Awesome effort well done......

FMC Evening Climbing - Tonight!

Denham/Curry

I am moving the final outdoor evening climbing meet of the season to Thursday night due to the likelihood of poor weather today. Don't worry, curry lovers! You ain't missing the Red Lion's curry night cos they've stopped doing it! Last time I checked curry wasn't even on the menu. However, food is being served until 8pm, so if anyone fancies eating on Thursday night they can do. Sun sets at around 7:30pm so an early start would be best! All welcome!

Avoid the use of plastic wheel barrows, it’s not a sustainable material,contributes to global warming,interferes with the eco system, pollutes and damaging to health,creates a waste disposal problem and is not up to the job when subjected to the moderate impact of big rocks.

Good work everyone, thank you all πŸ€—

Thank you everyone for your efforts, so sorry we couldn’t make it.

Thank you everyone. Xx

Get well soon folks

Yeah thank you all - apologies - couldn't do this weekend

Recent ascent : "Felt like a rocky version of Russian Roulette" www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crags/pen-y-ghent-1322/red_pencil_direct-33106

It's apparently in YMC Yorkshire Gritstone Vol. 2 (2014), although I don't have it
