Following Andrew’s email I have some info on Harrogate wall.
Rowan and I visited on Monday at lunchtime when it opened. They have a partial one way system in place, hand gel on entry etc. Lockers are in the same place as before. There were approx 6 other climbers inside at the most. We were expecting it to be busier but perhaps everyone is waiting a couple of weeks before visiting so numbers might increase over time. Cafe was open. Alcohol based liquid chalk is available to buy. You can check how busy it is online before visiting but it isn’t possible to book a slot. Given the lack of climbers inside we felt reasonably safe.
Sorry we’re going to miss the pub tonight as we’ve both got early starts in the morning and seem to be spinning plates at the moment. Hoping the madness will calm down soon so we can get out and have some fun!
Cool, I’m glad a few of us are going. We’ve sorted our accommodation. I won’t arrive until late on Friday so didn’t fancy camping. I’ll be heading over straight from Leeds or Manchester as I have an exam that afternoon which is a nuisance. I’ll be very jealous of everyone who gets to spend Friday daytime over there!
