It's actually my second account because I've no idea what email I used for the first. I feel so dishonest. :)

Hi Brian, not a problem, enjoyed it up at the crag too, and certainly don't mind passing on what I know , just the way I am, most definitely be out over the summer months , so more than likely cross paths again soon.

Easiest way to think of it is that when Lisa arrived at the top she found a rope belay within reach, which she then tied into in the normal way.

I can pick up up at the roundabout near your house, but I can't give you a lift home. Got to see a man about a dog, but there will be someone there who can give you a lift down, at least to Bolton if not home.

Text me to let me know if you want picking up (4.15pm )

Regards Derek
