    Hi Caroline

    Yes of course it’s fine. There will be about a dozen of us and it’s looking sunny but breezy. Look out for the blue VW camparvan. Look forward to meeting you

    Regards

    John and Penny

    Thanks Andrew and Gavin, Slipstones is always great to escape the crowds, the bouldering eludes me but over on the far left hand side there is a great variety of routes and grades with good landings. There is a great VS – that eat one of my camms once and I had to go back to the car to fetch something heavy to wrench it out – and a slightly overhanging HVS with large flake thing at the top that always makes me struggle. Over the years Tenk has introduced me to some super pubs nearby as well.
    Pen and I climbed at giggleswick south over the weekend, British limestone sports climbing is never “easy” or warm and exotic when compared to the European version but Giggleswick and Castle crag at Settle offers good routes at an amenable grade range for meager mortals like myself. It also avoids the crowds a bit, which have returned to the usual haunts of Stanage and similar. Earlier the same day we enjoyed a quick walk up Pen Y gent but it was soon swamped with the lycra clad masses, who of course have every right to be there, its just that they are a bit more “there” than they used to be 🙂 Recent trips to Scugdale have also been worthwhile and not crowded at all, its lovely sunny southerly aspect working well even after the showers.
