    A brilliant Report from Nick. At the other end of the scale, I’ve posted a few words about a quiet day in the northern Dales yesterday.

    Unjustly Shunned ?

    I couldn’t find the button to “Notify Members” but no doubt that will get sorted soon.

    As Nick says, the posting of Reports is now very easy. Just write, drag and drop. I timed my Great Shunner Fell report at 15 minutes. (About the same time it would take Nick to run it…..). Anyway, it seems like this software update has finally produced a user-friendly system for Reports. Lets see more of ’em. Hurrah.

    Thanks Giles, that’s certainly the sort of helpful info which can assist the rest of us to make decisions.

    Slipstones has been regularly on the Thursday evening itinerary, but usually with ropes on the taller climbs at the west end. However to my recollection, further eastwards there are various short (3 – 4 metre) Mods, Diffs etc which provide solo fun (ie avoiding use of equipment)

    Interesting stuff Bella, thanks. I think it would be very much in the general interest if Members would like to use the Forum to keep everyone else informed about the state of play at different places.

    Ideas for quieter out-of-the-way locations will probably be useful.. such as Giles’ recent post on bouldering at Gate House Crag.

    I was on the beaches of Northumberland last week. But I can report that yesterday Pen-y-ghent was not too busy, and parking (plus toilets I think) in Horton was not a problem. Has anybody got any recent feedback re the Lakes ?

    Angela has managed some Cairngorm Munros using B&B. Hats off. But hostels are still closed and Steve Murray has read some bad stories about bothies being vandalised. (at one time the locations were somewhat secret…….)

    I expect everyone will have received a BMC Newsletter today; but just for the record they report that climbing walls re-open on 25th July. There is a little article on that subject (rather obvious stuff IMO) and a link to Assn of Climbing Walls statement.
    I imagine they will be busy at Harrogate trying to move lockers and stuff to comply with social distancing.
    Whether all the words and requirements will be adhered to in practice remains to be seen.

    Eventually.
    I suspect that being a V.O.G. (vulnerable old git) I might leave this for a while myself, but its all personal choice of course.
