Transpennine Meet Revival (Cross Keys, Uppermill) - Sunday 22 December, organised by Caroline McCann

Found this one with a bit more notice than the quiz this Saturday - both events will be excellent no doubt. I'm trying very hard to be at both.

We used to have a regular UKC Transpennine Meet - climbing, walking and / or beers - for people living across the transpennine corridor mostly between Manchester and Leeds. A few of us still get together before Christmas for a bimble and beer and we'd like to open it out again to the UKC masses!!

So, Saturday 22 December, meet at 11am at the Cross Keys Inn, Running Hill Gate above Uppermill.

Climbers can go and do epic climbing shenanigans, walkers can go for a wander over to Pots and Pans, and the plan is that we all meet back at the pub for food, drink and jovial conversation when it starts to get dark. For anyone who doesn't fancy the energetic stuff, just join us at the pub from about 3.30pm! Partners, dogs and other hangers on very welcome!!!

So who's in?!

The conversation continued and the next thing I knew we were committed !

The following day we rose at…
