Bays Brown camping meet, 5-6 July 2019

Postby johnnightingale » Fri Jun 14, 2019 6:51 am

I'm leading this trip in early July, hopefully with better weather than at the moment. Bays Brown is a massive farm camp site, with no need to book in advance, though I will let the farm know how many of us to expect. It's at Chapel Stile at the start of Langdale, with loads of possibilities for climbing, walking, scrambling, biking and swimming. No need to pay in advance. Camping is £10 a night for adult and car, £8 extra per adult, £4 extra for under 15's. And yes, you can bring youngsters

Hi John,
The weather is looking promising for next weekend.
I'm interested in attending the meet.
Hoping to climb both days. Ideally around VS - E1.
Cheers,
Dave.

I'd also like to join the meet if the weather's good and I can team up with another experienced trad leader to climb with. I'd be looking to lead around Severe but can second VS. I'd ideally like to go up to Gimmer and do some of the multipitches up there.

Ooooh, may join if weather holds. Leading E1, seconding anything I can pull on, aiding anything I can't ? :shock:

Cheers,
P

Hi John
Just to let you know I am coming along too. Meeting up to climb with John McMahon to climb Friday and Saturday. John needs to get back to Leeds Saturday night but I will be around all weekend. See you there.

I'm planning on coming now that the sun seems to have returned.
I'm looking for a car share from Otley, I can either drive or can be a passenger.

Ian, John

I'm not sure what's happened to our illustrious meet leader, but it sounds like you might be the first to arrive. Are you aiming to park/pitch anywhere in particular? (e.g. near the toilets or in the tranquil expanse of the lower campsite?).

I'm hoping to arrive around 8 pm on Friday evening, but it will depend on traffic and how organised I am with packing (not very at the moment!). It would be good to know where to look out for everyone.

The weather is looking largely good for the weekend, so I'm looking forward to it!

Hi Cath
John and I are planning to camp at NT site at Langdale Thursday night and then head up to Gimmer Friday. We will move to other site as soon as we are down but timing will be determined by how day pans out. We both have grey transporter type vans and will be parked up somewhere. Not sure how much phone reception there is in that part of valley but if you text your number I will let you know when we arrive. My number is 07867 526861.

I'm going to come to this.

Norbert - would you like to lift share? I finish work in Yeadon around 5 - 5.30. Can come to Otley or meet here (work is the industrial estate behind Murgatroyds). Let me know.

Have fun all. Afraid Hol and I can't make it as we're heading off for our summer holiday. We're going to be exploring the sea cliffs of Swanage!

I'm planning to travel up with my van during the day, so should be there by 6pm. My van is a white VW Transporter.
