Hi all, weather (according to yr.no) looks like it might be alright this way on Saturday - will drive, ropes etc etc. If there’s good weather for both days, will be up for that also. Room for 3.
(If the Peak District looks alright, might prefer there - sadly not atm)
I’m keen, esp. on Portland as it usually has better weather. although probably more for Sat only than the whole w/end as I might need to work Sunday afternoon.
Hey @andrew I would be keen, @Kate_Davis may also be as well
Hey @andrew so @Kate_Davis is in, as am I if it is possible. Will be at Mile End tonight if you are around.
Sadly, can’t make it tonight (again), but sounds grand for this weekend. Car might be full now with the 4 of us (unless the weather changes, and we go for the full weekend/Sunday instead).
There’s not quite consistent forecasts for Saturday - might drive to Wye Valley (if it’s dry, and y’all are ok with that). Leaving mine at 5:30am/6am latest (Greenwich) - let me know where on route you’ll be for collection?
@dabarlow and @johnw1 expressed some interest, john might have a car, Barlow could only do Sunday- I think they both will have better visibility later this evening. Easy for me to meet at Elephant and castle whenever (I think that is on your route). Are you thinking a day mission, or would you be up for the weekend if weather is good?
Alternative - indoor at Castle 12 noon on sat. Some of us are meeting for Che’s Birthday with Brownswood pub after (from 3pm) Everyone welcome!
Just a day mission this time (that discount ski accom isn’t going to find itself!) - I could however leave you there if @johnw1 is driving to the same crag…?
Elephant & Castle is grand
@johnw1 can drive it looks like and is in for the weekend, as is @Kate_Davis I am pretty sure. I would also like to climb both days if possible. @Tutu are you still interested for Saturday only or do you not have to work Sunday? I have never been to Wye Valley - depending on what folks think I would also be keen for Swanage just because I know it a bit better, and it seems like it will be relatively warm.
yes it looks increasingly like I can only do sat, unless we’re back sunday early afternoon which is unlikely I suppose. maybe wait till the forecast is more certain before making the final call? it may well rain on sunday…
@andrew, depending on whether you can be swayed to climb Sunday as well, I would propose I ride down to swanage with @johnw1 and @Kate_Davis and if you are only down for Saturday you and @Tutu ride down together. If you want to climb both days we could potentially all squeeze into john’s car and tutu could catch a train or bus back. Or if you are set on the Wye for Saturday only then we can just have different missions. Weather looks decent for swanage.
Hi all - if you are a three on Sunday I’ll drive down and join you. As long as someone comes back in my car to share the petrol burden!
So does this mean you are a four on Sunday? @andrew are you staying both days?
If you are going to Swanage, the police are investigating a murder near Dancing Ledge so it might be wise to think about access when making your plans.
Would be interested depending on car/partner situation. Would rather do both days if possible!
awesome @jobangles - come! John is leaving Colindale at 7:30 am tomorrow morning - @Kate_Davis and I were going to meet him there, but I guess a car reshuffle might happen depending on @andrew and @Tutu’s plans. sounds like @guyarnold might join for sunday as well.
We are going to stay at swanage auberge saturday night. for gear, maybe bring ropes and rack if it isn’t a pain? I am bring rack, @johnw1 is bringing ropes, and @Kate_Davis is bringing the ab rope. If you are light on any rack or ropes, let us know as @johnw1 or @Kate_Davis can fill in any gaps.
I’m not yet a member (though I applied, so hopefully soon) but would like to come along. I will bring a car but I might only come back on Monday. I would be going round the M25 and could pick someone up from anywhere easy to get to from there.
