Are we nearly there yet??? Epic ascent of Tower Ridge, The Ben

Bags packed for the last 3 weeks and Geoff continually checking weather forecast for Scotland on the net every night. Just a little bit keen........Finally the perfect weekend had arrived and we were all set to go. I must admit I was a little worried at the prospect of tagging along with 2 super strong, super fit fellas (Rick `n Geoff). I am certainly not in that league.............Got loads of stamina yeah but as for strength and moving fast.......That aint me! Do they really want me to tag…

Pavey Ark

Had a fantastic day out yesterday and the weather was kind to us.  I tried to explain to Will that you have to look at the forecast and then listen to what it says, if it says showery at Burbage then it likely will rain! 

 

We started off up the path next to Stickle Ghyll and forked off right to scramble up the ridge grade 2.  A good warm up to climbing and very grippy rock.  We then tracked round to the bottom of Pavey Ark and found the start of Crescent Climb.  Memories of…

Helping the Bury Jubilee Outdoor Pursuits Centre

Hi - does anyone feel able to respond to the appeal below?

Dave Dickson and I have been involved for a long time but I have now left the area and Dave is probably reaching his last fifty years of useful service (sorry to be so blunt, Dave).
