Hi Derek, I gave up climbing after going travelling in about 1999 but started again four or five years ago. I'm married and have a baby boy! I see Al all the time, he's still climbing too, he lives in Diggle and has 2 kids. I also see foggy at his shop above BUK in Blackburn. Will come to a meet sometime soon, maybe Al too...

Hi Derek,

It's Andy, Will's friend.

Will's finally allowed me access to the site.

Not done much recently, went to Denham last week but rain stopped play. Went to the Roaches a few weeks back with Will and fell totally in love with the place. Will was tallking about organising a weekend in the Don Whillans hut next May.

Won't be at the next meeting because I'm away, but will be back just in time for the weekend in the Lakes.

See you then!

Hi Derek,
No, I don't think a repeat of next Saturday will ever be possible! Not sure about Braemar, will have some exams just after that so might need to put the nose bag on and eat some serious work.

Great to see everyone at the weekend,

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

The following day we rose at…

Man Versus Horsepower

Man verses Horse

Awoke 6.30 and peered out of the window expecting the worst but it wasn't that bad so by 7am l was up and breakfasting but still unsure whether to join the boys. Having Ridden up past Tottington to Holcombe for 9am there was no sign of anyone so a quick check of the phone…

Snow fell as we…
