Tuesday 21st August Caley Crags

Postby Will S » Wed Aug 15, 2018 6:34 pm

This weeks meet is Caley Crags. Its an area of larger outcrops behind the upper area (Boot crack area) of the boulders. There's a good range of grades but the easier climbs tend to be a little run out.

You can find a map and route info here:
https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=540

Please be careful when parking in the layby, look out for cyclists!

As its the last Caley Crag meet of the year I want to see everyone get up Compulsion crack please.

Post below if you are coming or need to sort out a lift.

I'll be there (if it's dry!). Btw, it's just as quick to walk into the 'crag' end from the parking near the Cheerful Chilli.

I'm aiming to come.
Interesting in JR's secret car-park. I hate parking on the main road.

Might follow someone up Compulsion Crack :shock: :shock:

"secret"??????? There's nowt secret about the two car parks opposite the Cheerful Chilli!

You do require 'the knowledge' on how to get down to the crag level though...

Will S - historically, the two parts of Caley have been referred to as the 'crag' and 'boulder' ends respectively (as there are two distinct areas with a sizable gap in between).

(Unfortunately the apparently rather good 'quarry' end was filled in during the mid to late sixties!)

It was the sixties JR, people were going round filling in anyone's 'quarry'.

I might be able to make it but thought I'd best check if anyone's happy to let me second before I just turn up and have no one to climb with.

Sorry - the aim of the move is to reduce my commute plus I've seen one with a kitchen I would literally kill for (use of the word literally in its most literal sense here).
