Tuesday 24th July Brimham Rocks

Postby Will S » Thu Jul 19, 2018 9:23 am

Back to Brimham for this week's meet. You can find crag info on UKC below.

Brimham is a really extensive venue with something for everyone. In fact its so extensive its easy to get lost in, so I suggest meeting at the Cubic block area close to the car park.

It's quite far away so if anyone is interested a needs a lift please post below.

Thanks,
Will

Hi everyone, I can make this meet, finally! As I've said before I'm a total beginner so if anyone's happy for me to tag along and hopefully I'll learn something that'd be great.
If I could car share with anyone too please let me know :)

I'm planning to come along.

Jodie - would you be able to drive to somewhere to meet up with someone to lift share? I work in York so I'm a bit useless for lifts, but if you could get to someone's house in Leeds they could take you from there. It's worth doing if you haven't been up to Brimham before as it's not the easiest venue to find your way around until you've been a couple of times.

Lindsey - thanks

...I can drive to someone's house to car share, I'm free anytime, earlier the better I guess but either way if any ones got a space free that'd be great as like Lindsey says I'll probably struggle to find where people are if I head there on my own.

Hi Jodie,

I'll be leaving from Guiseley around 5. In terms of beginners climbing I don't have any plans to put any top ropes up on anything as tends to happen at our beginner orientated evening meets. There is plenty of easier climbing at Brimham, as well as lots of bouldering if you have a pad?

Ah OK i didnt get to the beginners meet when's the next one?
Lindsey, I would be going up the A1 and across the A59 depending on where in York you're leaving from? That's if there's anything going for beginners as there's no point me going on this one if not. I could go and just watch, guessing I'll learn a few things even if I don't get to climb?

I work near Poppleton, but live in Kirkstall so not ideal for meeting up with if you want to drive (but if you prefer to use public transport to get to where I work and then back from Leeds, then I'm happy for you to jump in with me!). It might be simpler if you can get to Guiseley and lift share with Will, but up to you what you prefer.

I'm planning to do some easy stuff, so while there won't be any top ropes per se, I can give you a crash course in removing gear so you will be able to second my leads - does that sound ok?

Lindsey / Will - that sounds good to me, I'll hopefully get a lift with Will if that's OK please?

Hi Jodie,

I'll be arriving at the car park around 6, I drive a black Kia Rio. I will wait for you if you are not already there and show you how to get to cubic block. Hayley is also coming, she drives a green micra. Neil and Sandra will be in a silver polo. Not sure if anyone else is planning to join tonight, but people with climbing gear are generally easy to spot.
