I'm keen, I dont suppose anyone can give me a lift from headingley? If not I'll probably catch the train and cycle.

I intend to leave Headingley around 3.30-4.00pm. If this suits I can pick you up Wendy.
I could leave it a bit later if you can't make it that early. Let me know.

Cheers

Any chance I can join the Headingley crew? No worries if not, I was also going to cycle and train :) Em

I can offer a lift from Armley or Leeds uni way and anywhere en-route to Ilkley leaving around 5 pm (also happy to lift share in general). Also, I'm a pesky sport climber so only have a single rope and no trad rack, is an extra rope helpful or should I leave it behind?

Wendy and Kitsy, if you are at the corner of Cottage Rd and Otley Rd at 4pm I will pick you up. If you want me to delay my departure, post below.
Hburns, nothing wrong with a single rope for trad, but it's no use without a rack. Briing a couple of slings and a screwgate and you could top rope. There should be plenty there with ropes and racks, I'm sure you will be able to tie on.
Weather is looking great!
I will be hanging around 3 or 4 buttress early evening.
See you up there.

Cheers

Hi if I don’t get there until 6:30pm will I have missed most of the action? What time do you climb until?

Thanks
Rob

Hi Rob. No you will get plenty done. We will go for a pint in the Cow and Calf when it's getting dark.

0k Great

I became a member 2 weeks ago but I’ve not come before. I can lead climb indoors but have never been on rock before. I have a rope, harness, rock shoes, belay plate and 2 karabiners. No helmet though.

Still ok if I come along?
