Roaches, Wed 10th August


The afternoon was fine at the Roaches last Wednesday so a few of us got in half a dozen climbs before the impending rain made itself felt, at which point the pub beckoned. Hope the rest of you made it to the wall.

Geoff’s Beudy Meet – Another classic!


Geoff’s Beudy Meet attracted a huge turnout – I counted at least 25, which must be something of a record!
