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,

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
