The Gritstone Trail

Thirty five miles in a day was a tough call and the longest I have ever considered. Throw on top of that the hottest day of the year and lack of reprovisioning stops.

The route runs between Disley and Kidsgrove Train Station so is easy to access but given the distance it is for the summer only needing at least 14 hours of daylight.

The route runs through quiet rural Cheshire along a gritstone ridge for a lot of its length. The two of us took a south-north route though most do…

West Nab Bouldering

Sit-starts, injuries, and an unmentionable incident with a chalk bag - all in a short evenings work for a MoB midweek raid into West Yorkshire.

West Nab is the highest point on the West Yorkshire moors. Derek had been given the heads up by Dom and we had the Over the Moors guide to point us towards a huge number of problems, so off we went. Jordan and I navigated while Derek drove so, obviously, we were a bit later than planned, but eventually me, Derek, Jordan and Ivan met…

Phase Two Deeply revamp

After last years revamp of Deeply by the members of the Mob, we decided to start on phase two  project of digging out the next bouldering bay on the left.  After doing an exploratory dig last year I knew that the going wouldn't be that hard, that said it still needed shifting and my back always complains afterwards Emoji . We decided that rather than barrowing all the soil away we would just pull the soil away from the face and while making the face higher it…

Mountain Biking Dalby Forest Friday 27th Sat 28th Sun 29th September 2013

I have secured exclusive use of Dalby Forest YHA for the above weekend.  21 places are available. The date set was the only one available around the time we normally go and I hope it fits with as many people as possible. The Hostel is SELF CATERING.  There is enough cycling for one day at Dalby on marked tracks for all abilities which is only 2 miles from the YHA.  Ian Boddy is in the process of sorting a Cross Country ride for the other day.  There is a Pub near by as I realise this is a…

Hadrian's Wall Direct - V 5

Perfect conditions on the Ben, blue sky, hard freeze and only a light wind. The walk up to the CIC hut was a joy, full of stories from the past and expectation for the day ahead. My motivation was just right, I felt confident in my partner, Graeme (over 15 years expereince on Ben Nevis, he'd had his eye on Hadrian's Wall for 10 years!), everything felt like it was coming together perfectly.

We chatted with other climbers at the CIC hut, checking the conditions, asking about other… Continue

Article by Will Gadd that I thought was worth a read.

On day 18 of a planned 12-day trip, the head of athlete marketing for Red Bull was sliding down the emotional slope from stressed toward very unhappy about what wasn't happening: climbing. It was November 2006 and we were in Nepal to climb a huge new face. Mr. Red Bull was there to oversee where the brand's large chunk of cash was going. Every day we started…

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
