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…

Tryfan & Bristley Ridge

We made good time and were soon parked up on the A5 at the bottom of North Ridge. We got ourselves suited and booted and made a…

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…

December Mob walk

The weather forecast had dire warnings for travel so very limited turn out Average age of the walkers was 70 y.o. There was just a small amount f snow on roads. But the regular track up Pendle hill was hard packed snow hence slippery. Took took the cross country route to Ogden Clough about 6ins of soft snow. Very few people out on the tops. Sorry the younger members were all at home watching City week in fact all back home before kick off
