Lancy lads go to Froggatt Edge

Froggatt Sunday 19th June


Sunday’s trip to Froggatt didn't turn out quite as nice as we had expected but the weather held off allowing us to get stuck in to some classic Grit Stone routes. I was surprised to see how quite the crag was for a change, perhaps the change in the weather put a few off.


Highlight’s of the Day were Mark Russels lead of Pendestal Crack his first HVS on the Grit, not bad as the routes then to be a tad on the…

Last Wednesday's Orienteering

Well, the afternoon's rain meant that it was slippery under foot and the vegetation was very wet where the controls were off-track but there was a window of dry weather so that the earliest finishers got round before the drizzle started again.

Don't forget to bring a pencil or pen for marking your control card.

Pembroke Weekend

Around 15 of us spent a a superb bank holiday weekend climbing in Pembroke. The forecast was for wet weather, yet we almost completely avoided rain (though as anyone who has seen Rick's video footage of my brush with the sea knows, I for one didn't avoid getting wet!). The weather turned out fine. Me, Gary, Derek and Rick arrived late on friday night. We got the tent up and got out heads down, while Mark, Lewis, Will, Jordan and Brian upset the rest of the campsite by constructing something…
