Next Evening Meet:

Evening meet: Brownstones

Wed 30th Sep, 2020

All welcome. Evening meets start around 6pm. Please bring midge repellant/net and suntan cream. Manchester sunset is approximately 18:55, twilight to around 19:30. Please keep an eye on Scribble for wet weather options.


The last outdoor evening meet of 2020 is at Brownstones; The jewel of Lancashire bouldering! It's a great venue, sheltered with evening sun, where a lot can be done in a very short time, perfect for a late season midweek session (especially since the midges are starting to hibernate). Details can be found here:




Keep an eye on scribble for updates and if you have any questions please let me know. See you all there, and don't forget your bouldering mats...

Pule hill

Members: Jared Kitchen and Gareth Williams 

Having remained dry most of the day, a mighty cloud arrived the second we left the house, and by the time we arrive at arrived at Pule Hill the crag was dripping. However, the rain had stopped, and with the a brisk wind we hoped that the rock would dry quickly; we walked up the hill and arrived to see dry patches emerging! Feeling keen, we walked around to The Sentinal area where Jared racked up for a quick send of Treverse Not (VS 4c). At the top we rigged a top rope on the infamous Overlapping Wall (E1 6b); an impossible stopper of a problem that kept us puzzled for the next hour or so. 

We then headed around to the Quarry in search of more action, but another great cloud gathered it's strength and soaked the crag for a second time. We sheltererd in the cave under Delilah (E1 5b) for a bit chatting away, but after 30 mins conceded defeat and returned to the cars. We arrived home just in time to log into the KMC's virtual meet for a chat.

It was great to get out and catch up with friends, even in the rain! It was a good evening.
