Yorkshire grit climbing weekend 8th-10th July

Get your pitch reserved… ***** Five Star !!!!!
We aim to climb at Almscliffe, Brimham and … maybe beyond…

We’ll be camping at Breaks Fold Farm, near Thruscross Reservoir (GR SE14935752) in the Washburn Valley from Friday night. It’s a quiet field site (be prepared for midges!) half way between Skipton and Harrogate.

Meet us at Almscliffe crag from 10am on Saturday.

If you’re not up for climbing, there are some decent walks around the nearby reservoirs and in Nidderdale, and plenty of cycling opportunities in the area. We’re planning food in the Hopper Lane Hotel on Saturday night, then climbing possibilities on Sunday could be classic Brimham Rock or maybe include esoteric Brandrith, or Simon’s Seat.

Contact Rachel Johnston or Paul Taylor (details in the handbook) to help us with camping and food arrangements.

    As Rachel lost her mobile phone in burglary, please contact either of us by landline number (also in handbook) or Paul’s mobile (details in handbook)

  3. Our well travelled Berlingo is still away from home! Perhaps gone…. and we are heading up the Rucksack meet at the weekend. We planned to arrive Friday evening but also with our driving licenses stolen too we will not be able to hire a car… So can anyone offer a lift from Halifax who was possibly planning to go. We have had a few responses but no-one so far can offer Friday lift. We may need to change to meeting Saturday morning unless someone recovers our Berlingo buddy.
