I'm interested in this. Though it depends on me completing a house maintenance job beforehand (otherwise I'll be doing that instead :( ) !

Desire will be to bike one day and sample some of the bouldering another.

Apologies: I won't be able to make it due to said DIY job(s) - a combination of 'mission creep' and discovering water ingress into the house which obviously needs fixing asap!

Looks like you're going to have some reasonable conditions. I'm sorry to be missing out :-(

Does anyone have a copy of OL42? Royal Mail have let me down and I've only got OL43. Immediate area covered but did fancy a walk up near Kielder Water too

Davie and I are driving up tomorrow morning
