Almscliff. Don't walk on the wall

https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crags/almscliff-373

If you don't like walking on walls and you can park without blocking a gate then you are welcome to come. See you there.

We will also be going to the Hunters Inn after. If you can't make the climbing come along for a chat and a bottle of Newkie Brown

Covid stuff:

Ok, the boring bit. As we all know COVID hasn't gone away and cases are rising.

Self-isolation of anyone in contact with a positive case remains a requirement until 16th August (or until 2 weeks after your second vaccine, whichever is later), so if you are notified to isolate you must not attend any meets. There will be no "black marks" for pulling out of a meet booking due to self isolation.

Isolation of people who contract COVID will still be a requirement so if you develop any symptoms of illness which could be due to COVID (this includes headaches, fatigue and even a runny nose for some variants), you must not attend any meets until you have confirmed you are negative or have completed your isolation. Again, there will be no penalties for pulling out of meets for this reason.

Over the next couple of months, most of our planned activities take place outside and are therefore relatively low risk for transmission, but please consider carrying hand sanitiser for use after touching shared equipment etc. Use of masks will still be recommended on public transport and in shops and we would ask everyone to consider this if car sharing.

I know it probably goes without saying but please also be mindful that everyone has different risk factors, both for themselves and their loved ones, and we may not be equally comfortable being around others yet so let's continue to be supportive of each other and not have any mandatory group hugs

May I join in please? I’m new to the group but joined a weekend climbing day a few weeks back. I don’t have gear but have own personal equipment. Led my first S 4a at Almscliffe last week :) so I’m keen to build on this and can second higher. I can get there for around 1600, possibly earlier if anyone is free. Natasha

Given that I have spent the summer eating all the pies...
I feel I should be physically and emotionally humiliated - in view of an audience.

I'd like to come please!
