Climbing this weekend


#1

Hi all,
anyone up for a climbing trip this weekend?
Weather looks ok around Swanage and Peak :wink:

Could go with train to Hathersage for instance.

Cheers,

Jan

Hi Jan, do you fancy a day sport climbing at Portland? See if anyone else is interetsed?
Sean

Hi Jan,
I’d be up for a day trip on either day

I’m up for a trip but can only do this Saturday, got an event I can’t cancel on Sun.
Would be up for Portland, however I don’t have a car. Train to Weymouth is not too bad though? Or Hathersage is probably about the same.
Can do the whole of next weekend of 21-22nd :grinning:

Hi Jan,
Sounds good, I’d also be up for a trip and either day is fine. Can give a lift
Daniel

Awesome Daniel! Sounds like you potentially have a full car already :slight_smile:


#7

I’ve got a car and can do either Sat or Sun but prefer the coast to the Peak at the moment…
Sean

I’d love to share a car if one of the drivers decides to do Sat only :slight_smile:
prefer Portland to the peaks as you get a bit more climbing done in a day and the weather is generally better, but don’t mind too much.

I am up for some weekend climbing. Swanage and Cornwall look good, or Peaks on Sunday. I can drive.

Regards

Thanks for the feedback, which I summarized below (hope that reflects it).

Peter: car, both days (Swanage, Cornwall) or one day (Peaks, Swanage)
Omar: Saturday or Sunday for Portland
Jan: both days, preferredly Cornwall or Swanage but up for Peaks and
Portland day trips
Sean: car, Saturday or Sunday for Portland
Daniel: car, Saturday or Sunday for Portland
Tutu: Saturday only for Portland

Anyone else up for a whole weekend trip?

Cheers,

Jan

Jan,
I’m okay with any of the places and can do two days :slight_smile:
Daniel


#12

On further contemplation, I would be up for two days as well, any location
:slight_smile:
Omar


#13

damn, I wish I could do two days!
If it’s Portland or Swanage, I suppose I could join people for one day and take a train back Sat evening.

Hi all,
Peter and me are keen to go to Cornwall for the whole weekend (it is a bit
of driving which is not viable for a day only).

I think Peter usually leaves around 6.30pm on Friday from Oakwood station.

Cornwall is beautiful, has awesome cream teas and mega-climbing!

How does that sound? Who is in?

@Sean - sure you don’t want to do a whole weekend? Maybe Tutu and you can
arrange sth…

Bye,

Jan

Hi Jan,
Cornwall is tempting but I can’t do the whole weekend…family stuff to do at home.

Tutu, I’m good for Portland on Saturday though, if you still fancy the day trip? And will have 2 spaces in the car if anyone else is keen?
Sean


#16

Hi Sean, I’m still very keen on Portland for Saturday, haven’t been there in ages. Assuming you’d leave on Sat early morning?


#17

Not for this weekend, but another good trip would be ansteys cove - either before gets too much like winter or spring … https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=285
