Are you interested in attending the NLMC Yorkshire Meet over the Easter weekend?
Harriet has proposed the delightful Crag Hill Farm in Horton In Ribblesdale. It is right in the middle of prime limestone country and has nearby climbing to suit most tastes (trad, sport and bouldering). The Yorkshire grit crags are within 30-60 minutes’ drive and even Langdale in the Lakes is only 1 hours 20 minutes away if it is really sunny!
The campsite itself meets all of the key NLMC requirements, namely:
Cheap - this is an old school £5 pppn sort of place
Pub and cafe within a mile
Unfortunately it does have showers but you don’t have to use them…
Camping also means if the weather is dire we have the flexibility to go somewhere else. If you would like to come can you please let me know whether or not you have a car and are willing to drive and when/where you can leave? Most people will want to leave on Friday night but there might be some who favour Saturday morning.
Since moving to Leeds I have been hanging around with the Gritstone Club,
another venerable climbing institution which rivals NLMC for longevity and
first ascents. I’m going to suggest to them that this could be a joint
meet, so we may have some local knowledge on hand to help steer us away
This has just reminded me of Gigglin’ Crack, also at Brimham. It is very well protected, only 10m long and the first 5m is easy hand jamming. I am (quite literally) incapable of imagining how desperate the top 5m crack must be for it to be E6. What does 6c off-widthing even mean!?
