Devon meet - 22nd - 23rd July


#41

@Vilius that’s great! When and where do you want to meet?

Tom


#42

Yay thank you @Vilius that would be great. @mortim91 do you want to climb together to share on racks / ropes? Or I can also just bring all my stuff


#43

We will be leaving from Hatfield. I can leave as early as 16.30-17.00. We are you located and when you can leave? I’ll try to plan our route accordingly.


#44

Thanks, Vilius, would be great if I could catch a ride with you :slight_smile: Will send you a message separately about timings etc.


#45

@Catrin, i’m afraid I haven’t got a trad rack or ropes, but I would still
be keen to climb together if you don’t mind sharing your gear? I can bring
a pile of quickdraws, slings, and a sports rope (for abseiling) if any of
that would be useful…


#46

Is there anyone who is bringing an ab rope? Or knows what is necessary - a quick look at a guidebook for baggy point suggested a 60 might be required for some of the longer approaches.


#47

I have just spoken with @khalidqasrawi and he can lend us his static rope for the abseil. I have a 30m dynamic which we can use for a handline to get to the top of the abseil. it certainly looks like a place for adventure! :slight_smile:


#48

Awesome - thank you @khalidqasrawi


#49

Hi Everyone - just to confirm that I have booked campsite pitches for @dadler, @mhobby1979 and @jo_keogh. (@andrew booked himself already)

@Tutu - do you need a place or are you wild camping?

Team @Vilius - similarly let me know how many places you want booking and I’ll book them if I can - assuming there is still space! The weather currently looks ok (some rain/some sun!) - see https://www.meteoblue.com/en/weather/forecast/week/croyde_united-kingdom_2651818?day=5 but the confidence is still marked as low. It is still 5 days out though so it remains anyone’s guess! :slight_smile:

Cheers
Matt

If need be, I probably have a few semi-static glacier ropes in my van. I’ll
make no promises though, my gear is quite scattered around…


#51

Hi Matt - I’ve booked myself and paid already, thanks :slight_smile: Looks like there’s still some space :slight_smile:


#52

@mhobby1979 I think I should be fine wild camping, i’ve only got a bivy bag anyway


#53

Looks like I’m not going to be able to make it this weekend. Have a great time! Hope to see you all in Pembroke. Johannes


#54

Hmm, weather is looking a bit pants (perhaps too early) - thoughts on alternative climbing spots which are drier?


#55

Portland or Swanage? it’s always better on the south coast!


#56

Heavy rain on Saturday during the day in Devon (and rain pretty much everywhere else too), so will probably head to Portland on late Saturday, 2 spaces in the car going (apologies). @dadler will need a lift to Devon however - if anyone can take him that’d be much appreciated.


#57

Am going to give this trip a miss, sorry! Looking a bit too wet for
camping. Hope you have a good weekend

Eulee


#58

@andrew is there any chance I could join on a Portland trip? or will I be a bit redundant if I have no climbing partner? maybe someone else wants to go? I can actually be very speedy on the rock :smirk:


#59

Of course - Portland was your idea!


#60

Oh that’s great, thank you! let me know when and where you’ll be leaving from and I’ll be there :grin: I can bring some extra gear if needed!
