Ray Price

Just an historical post Ray Price joined about the same time as I did i.e before  a lot of you were born. He was mainly a hill walker I have many happy memories of some of our trips such as bivvying mid winter in an old quarry cave at the head of Longsleddale.It was of course cold and wet. Then there was the first view of what was to be the Bury Hostel at Glenridding It also was flooded, a far cry from the current hostel which Ray and I both helped to get through its early years. Ray had…

Ghost from the past -Missing DVDs

After practically a full 2 years out with injuries ,I'm hoping to get back to climbing again at the tender age of 67 (on the instructions of my physio).Of course,for me it raised the issue  of "How do you climb ?"  -memory loss being a major component of the ageing process.Then having sorted a few books out ,I realised I was missing 2 DVDs -Libby Peter's Rock Climbing Essentials  and Neil Gresham's Masterclass.So ,I'm wondering if I have lent them to anyone in the club.

Thanks…

9 Months with MOB

As most of you know, I am Spanish, from Mallorca. I came here 9 Month ago to start an adventure, a new leaf in my life.

My passions are mountains and climbing, I am an IT professional and my Hobby is programming unmanned vehicles leaded by microcontrollers, and fortunately I met the MOB in the right place at the right time.

The first thing I did when I arrived was go to climbing wall, and there was when I met Graham, and later Derek. I joined to MOB quite early and I started to…

A Mini-Mountain Adventure in Wales OR.... My Introduction to Multi-Pitch climbing on the Grooved Arête.

I arrived at the bunkhouse in Lanfairfechan for the weekend not knowing quite what to expect. There were a couple of familiar faces but otherwise just a handful of random friendly mountain bikers. I hadn’t taken a bike so was planning on walking - or climbing, should someone willing to show me the ropes (literally!). As it happened that person was Matt. Full of enthusiasm he seemed more than willing to take myself and Fiona, both comparative beginners but with a…

Longsleddale Outdoor Pursuits Centre - Near Kendal

Longsleddale Outdoor Pursuits Centre is a voluntary outdoors centre based just North of Kendal in the Lake District. It was formed 40 years ago to provide free or cheap access to the outdoors for the underprivileged youth of Bolton / Manchester.



However, we are in a very bad way at the moment and may close down very soon. We need volunteer instructors (It's a great place if you are looking for log book time),…

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…
