Gogarth 2015


Updated with more pics from Jill and Ian plus a link to a video of me and Andy being interviewed for   Once again, the weather gods smiled on the Gogarth meet.

Wilton – Invasion of the killer midges


A good team assembled for Steve’s meet – seven Rucksackers and a couple of guests, but unfortunately the party was crashed by a zillion midges. Despite the application of various jungle juice potions and magic creams, the little buggers were making life pretty intolerable. Even those canny enough to bring the right headgear weren’t immune. The …

Beudy – E, Lord she were thin

I found a really cool piece of wood upstream from Beudy and think it would make a good nameplate to go above the door. If there any carvers, woodworkers, whatever the name is, out there who would be willing to chisel out ‘Beudy Mawr’, please contact me or Steve. Thanks PS Sorry for giving the …

Climbing TONIGHT at Stoney – Yes, I’m still going!


Whilst it looks a bit gloomy out there, the forecast suggests it should dry up a bit later. Fingers crossed that we haven’t used up all the good weather luck at Gogarth last weekend… Worst case and I’ll be buying the first round in The Moon. Cheers Dom

Wednesday at Wimberry

Sandy Gibson, Paul Dyson and Andrew Connolly shivering in the shade.

A fine evening at Wimberry and a good turn out made for an enjoyable evening on the greenest Gritstone this side of the Pennines. A tough selection of die hards made short work of the lung busting flog up to the crag, but spurred on by the thoughts of smearing delicately on scrittly, lichen covered grit …
