Not at Gower?

I've decided that right now 4 days is just 2 days too many to be away from getting stuff done at home .But I'd like to get at least one day's climbing in.Is anyone not at Gower who would like to get out out over the long weekend?Usual conditions apply-ie I have no transport !

Grand plan to bring Deeply Vale back into condition and increase the climbing and bouldering
